Hi, I'm Tim!

Just picked up my 2019 Veloster N last night, no good pics yet as it's too snowy and cold outside, this one was during the PDI and detail before delivery.

I have been a long time performance car enthusiast and have owned several performance oriented vehicles. I recently sold my 2006 Nissan 350Z in the interest of getting something still fun but with a little more space and this fit the bill perfectly.

Details:

2019 Veloster N
Chalk White
Performance Pack(only one available in Canada, we also get heated seats/steering wheel which if I understand is not even an option in US)

$1000 CAD off MSRP $33,999 CAD($25,656 USD)

Added Fast Wheels, Switch 18'x8.0 in satin black (Winter approved finish) and winter tires (Canadalife) for another $2k.

Sounds like a lot of dealerships are not playing nice in the states. Dealer told me last night they are governed in Canada and not supposed to mark up. Not sure how true it us given they are still franchised.

I'm happy as **** though, what a car.

Edit: not gonna lie, I really like the winter rims they picked for me too.

No offense, that's what a nanny state will do for you at times. When governments get into the business of private business thru, regulation, legislation or politics, freedoms are lost. I can pick and choose myself, without the aid of government legislation to do that for me. Capitalism is just that. If dealers in the US want to capitalize on a particular product, I can clearly see competition will prevail. If there is no competition due to government intervention, then you're not free to choose. It's been taken away from you, plain and simple.

Besides, that's the fun of shopping around. What a bargain is to one is not to another!: When business are free to compete, then you can find a real bargain.:grin:
Anyway, welcome aboard have fun and be safe!

Blessings and Peace

I feel like you misunderstood or really wanted to get into some politics my man but to my knowledge there is no government legislation prohibiting dealers from marking up vehicles. Matter of fact it happens all the time here. A **** Civic Type R was going for like $55k+

The dude was telling me that Hyundai Canada was prohibiting dealers from marking them up to keep the price where they wanted it.

You only have to look at the cost of mobile phone service, Internet and cable TV in Canada.
The CRTC should be abolished and competition encouraged.

Nope don't like politics. Poly is a Greek word meaning; "many", tics; are blood sucking parasites. So, politics and politicians are simply blood sucking parasites. Understand Rob...E We spent four+ years in the UK. It's the same way if not worse there. Trust me we have our nannies also. Competition is what makes the business world go round. If they don't want to part with it at a reasonable cost, go to someone who will. Playing one against the other nearly always works.:grin:

As far as the heated steering wheel is concerned, you can have it along with the subzero temps also.:wink::smile_big: I can live without a heated steering wheel, as it wasn't a factor for purchasing our Veloster N w/PP.:wink::smile: Wow, I haven't been called; my man for along time. Used to be a USAF 4 Star Generals Aid and was a man's man. (Butler, Maid, Chauffeur, Chef, Courier etc.):grin:

Enjoy the N for sure. Keep it out of the snow drifts also!:grin: I saw the snow piled up in the photo outside the service bay. WOW! I'll just drift mine a bit, without the snow banks.!:wink:

Blessings and Peace

HAPPY BIRTHDAY also, hope you enjoy many more!!:angel:

Meant no offense by the "my man" drop just being jovial. *Edit: I am a military veteran of 18 years myself.

I should have been more clear in my wording when I said governed I didn't mean by the government. I realize how dumb that sounds when I say it out loud now lol.

As for the CRTC in relation to the cellular/internet industry in Canada, a lot of their more recent policies are trying to protect consumers and force competition in Canada. They do mettle to much into a lot of aspects of media that I find concerning though, I can agree there.

It's such a mess up here right now because there is almost only 3 major corporations that provide these services in Canada (Bell, Telus and Rogers) and even the seemingly smaller companies (Wind, Koodo) are just re-branded sub companies of the big 3.

It's kind of frustrating because it really seems that every time one of them raises or changes rates and plans the other 2 make the same adjustments at the same time. Doesn't take much research to see they all provide the same services/packages at the same rates. Seems there is a bit of an agreement that ends up producing a bit of a 3 way monopoly and it is difficult for any competitors to edge into the market in a significant way.

What we really need is some T-Mobile/Virgin type larger companies to come in and provide some actual competition to shake up the market and make the big 3 realize they need to be a bit more competitive. Until then we are stuck paying some of the highest data rate charges of any 1st world country :plain:.

Anyway hyper off topic but paying through the nose for cell service is a sore spot of mine as my wife worked for a call center in Canada for a large provider in the states and could actively see everyday how hard we are getting hosed in comparison. Case and point a 2 phone shared data plan with 5GB and nation wide calling and texting runs upwards of about $230/month :crying:.

Did I mention I love this car? haha.

Sorry don't want to drag this out, but I was in the UK a couple of years ago and bought a sim card with unlimited talk and text plus unlimited data for 2 months for £12, that's about $20 Can.
Just can't see why we pay so much in Canada. Most of my family in the UK don't bother with landlines anymore.
My sister who was living on her own even used her mobile as a hub for her home Internet.

P.S. loving my performance blue beauty too. Can't wait till it warms up and I can get the summers on and go out and play.
