I have seen from the Facebook Velo N groups, that Albert Hwang has begun to distribute these parts for North American owners. Could be available through him.

I saw that he had to give everyone a refund because the items are not in stock? I really want them to come to the us already I want to be able to see them in person, the dealership or wherever they’re going to have them at.

Even with the chance of Coronavirus attached I would also like the source if that can be shared. My ebay search-fu is weak young grasshopper.

... The Veloster N 8-speed DCT is scheduled to be released as a model year change in South Korea in place of recently discontinued Veloster N. ...

They discontinued the N in Korea? Or is this guy saying they discontinued the stick shift version in favor of the DCT? Wonder if this is what they're planning to do in the US as well...

Treat it as a typo, or possibly a bad translation. If it were any other Hyundai I might feel differently (e.g. in the US they dropped the manual from the Elantra Sport sedan this year), but considering ALL of their N sales so far have been manuals they'd be foolish to discontinue at least offering it.

The manual in this car is so user friendly, it was refreshing to hear new owners just learning to drive stick in it. I think the dct will both help and hurt sales but overall should be a gain.

Hey, I got a question...

Do car models that have DCT typically also come out with a traditional automatic version?

I've never driven a DCT, and only know what I hear on YouTuber reviews of those cars. So I dunno if also offering a regular automatic makes any sense.

Negative. Even if there is a regular automatic its usually an inferior engine like the kia soul. 1.6 turbo 200hp has dual clutch. Regular automatics have a choice between naturally aspirated 1.6 or 2.0

Are you saying the new DCT will help or hurt sales? Or not matter?

Thx,

Neither Joe. It's an afterthought. It just won't make much of impression on buyers either way.
An N automatic would be a HARD NO for me. The only thing that brought me to the KDM market WAS the manual transmission. Now for those performance parts! I want the new intake. The intake looks oddly like the Takeda one that I am considering ordering soon.

It is in the N-Performance Mall on the N-Line tab it's the full aFe Takeda and the on the Veloster N tab, it's a modified aFe Takeda airbox and filter w/o the intake tube.
