First off, welcome to the site.

Secondly, most of the dealerships so far have been completely clue-less in regards to the new tiburon. Take great stock in Rob's words, hell he's even seen one.

The reason most dealerships are clueless when it comes to Hyundai (especially release dates) is that Hyundai doesnt' tell us anything. We didn't know when the Santa Fe was going to be released until about 2 days before. Dealerships are only the distributor, its HMA who doesnt tell anyone what's going on.

Your best bet for pretty reliable info is this and the other Hyundai performance sites<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

To be honest, Hyundaiperformance.com and fxtreme.org is the source of all my dealership information.

Its funny when you know more then the sales staff and they are usually like 'holy crap' where did you get that info.

I will agree with 4doorGL, late Jan early Feb. I got a call a couple days ago that the official orders and reservations are being made right now here in Canada. Its nothing big, but usually its done before the actual shipping phase.

Yeah you know how it is…….
It feels like having someone pulling a dollar on a string.
Each time you reach for it, its farther away.

For anyone that cares the silver '03 showcar will be at the North American International (Detroit) Autoshow this year. Too bad the only night you get to sit in it is the Charity Preview and most people won't have tickets (I do though, I'll let you all know what its like inside) my dealer has 19 cars going to be displayed in the show and he told me that the car that will be there will be the US production version. Let me know what I should check for to clear up all the different rumors.

One thing I want you to check.

Look under the passenger side a/c vent and see if the cup holder is there. I've seen 5 different 2003 Tib's, and some had it, some didn't.
