I’ve owned this Gen Coupe since 2018. Slowly but surely, the build has come together. The first genesis coupe that really inspired me was the JP Edition widebody gen that I saw at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. That was the first time I had seen a modified gen coupe up close, and I loved it. The main goal of the car was to keep it daily driveable, but to add things that added to back road driving experience and fun.
So, the motor remains untouched other than the Borla exhaust. Suspension wise, I’ve got BC coils paired with whiteline sway bars, ATQ subframe collars, and a Cusco strut bar. I’ve had a 3.9 LSD swapped in with the ATQ differential bushing kit. For the track oriented stuffs, we’ve got Brembo brakes, rotors pads and lines, power steering and a DTOZ oil cooler.
Aesthetically on the exterior, there’s a ton of carbon fiber. M&S front lip, RKsport sideskirts, Sequence rear diffuser, M&S rear splats, VIS hood, Seibon trunk, ABS Dynamics H1 fenders, and VIS front grill. The lip, grill, hood, side skirts, and trunk all have PPF from Concours Auto Salon here in San Antonio. The carbon fiber fenders are painted to give it a cleaner look. Without the paint, the car looked a bit goofy in the front with all the exposed carbon.
Interior wise, there’s Braum Bespoke Elite R seats, a G4Werkz carbon fiber wheel, carbon fiber shifter, and a Cipher harness bar to hold the racing harnesses.
This car may not be the fastest or the most modified, but it always puts a smile on my face when I drive it, and that’s something that makes me want to keep it every time.
