I had to go to work right after we finished the deal so I haven't gotten to drive it much but man it is sweet. Anyone who said they didn't like the v6 is on crack. Man it sounds sweet as hell when you put the revs on. Will definately have to get used to the 6-speed but I am going to be cautious with it, I will not be the first one to hit the wrong gear and blow the engine. Can't wait to get off work and go drive. It's Carbon Blue, will be getting Digital pics soon.

awesome man, I'm super happy for you...

I was looking at the prices, and I wouldn't get the top of the line one, I would prolly go with the base V6, since I know within the year or so, I'd have 2 racing seats, new wheels, dropped, painted interior and a different spoiler... lol and save myself almost 1500-2000k for that... :) and the GT badging, well those are cheap to find... lol

Batlord,

I didn't get the top. I'm not sure what package it is but it's cloth interior, with the 6-speed, no abs. I'm going to try and live with the infinity for awhile but I may have to put one of my twelve's back in, just don't know if that 8" sub is gonna cut it for me. I paid 18,291.00 payments are gonna be a bitch but it is so worth it. This car is a total evolutionary leap so far forward from my old one. Thanks for the congrats. Now if i just wasn't at work so I could be driving<img src=/images/forums/snitz/mad.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>

I drove the 2003 fully loaded Tib. It's not all that, infact it sucks.
i was going to trade my 2000 in last Sat. When I test drove it it sucked. i wound up trading my Tib in for a Saab 9-3 SE Turbo.
The 2003 tib couldn't even keep up. Without dumping all kinds of money into it.

exmfb, what do you expect? You can't compare an N/A car to a turbo car.

Now go find a Saab board and have fun <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>.

I would have to agree its time to find a new Saab board there exmfg.

I will let you know a little tid bits though.

1) If you don't like Hyundai's depreciation, your gonna be fuming mad when you trade in your Saab. Buddy who did my exhaust bought his brand new for $40,000 (Viggen) and put about $10,000 worth of upgrades (turbo, exhaust, intake, suspension the works)to the whole car. He is now selling it 4 years later for $20,000 (Cdn prices of course). He has had one offer for $16,000 in the past 3 monthes, but doesnt want to sell that low.

2) Replacement parts are the reason for the low resale, no one buys a Saab used. Would rather drive a BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Volvo, Jag, Caddy, list goes on as would I.

Its nice to see you as proud about your Saab as you were probally about your Hyundai. But unfortunately, your in for a couple 'bumps' down the road.

Also you cannot compare a $30,000 'luxury' car to a $20,000 car. When I put my $10,000 US worth of aftermarket into my 2.7L Tiburon 6-speed, we'll take it to the tracks and see who has the best performance (acceleration, top speed, handling, list goes on) between the two cars.

I coulda bought a $30,000 US entry level luxury car or Saab too, but a cheap coupe with potential is so much more fun.

Besides I don't like the whole 'Jerry Seinfeld' look.

Um... So?? Correct me if i'm wrong, but don't mods like the type your friend has, lower your resale value like crazy?

Yeah, and people who own corvettes should have bought a Mustang GT and put $20,000 mods into it I suppose.

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> No offense but I would much rather have a BMW in parked in on my driveway, instead of a fixed up Sonata or a 97 Tiburon. Than again, it's just my opinion.

I'm not trying to pick a fight with you, but for crying out loud, what are you trying to do Smiley? Make the guy feel bad for buying a luxury car?

All right people, stop ****ing bitching in my new car post! Saab guy obviously doesn't like the car so he can go find himself a Saab board to whine on.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> There I'm done now.

No, point is over the period of a day he posted 7 different posts saying how 'awesome' his Saab is and how crappy the Tiburon was. Read through the forum. The mods have moved one to the Flame forum too under '2003 Tiburon Sux'

As for why I own a Sonata now?

Well I am 21, I just got a full time job after not working cause of college. Now I m making $60k Cdn a year, so I went from $12,000 year living at home to this. Enough said?

As for why don't I buy a luxury car? Sure I would, but I have owned a '97 Tiburon (when I was 16), a '99 Sonata (when I was 18), and now going after the Tiburon V6. Why did I choose the Tiburon?

I would rather blow a 'Hyundai cheap' engine then a BMW 3.0L, Audi 2.8L. Not to mention the fact that I can do as Red and others, are doing and have a spare engine to work on my setup for forced induction.

I don't like Honda at all. I have owned 2 Hyundais, coming onto 3 and love them so far.

As for the Saab 9-3 Viggen that this guy owned, I was not impressed by it at all. I would have boughten an M3 or S4 instead of that.

As for the reason of aftermarket depreciating a car. Its true and not true. It depends on who is looking to buy it. If you are a 80 year old lady, you don't want to waste your money on a 300hp modified Saab that could take a 45 degree turn at like 60 km/h. Therefore she won't buy it. But if you are a 16-25 year old male (or female for that matter), you will be all over it.

Final point, suck it up and move on to a Saab Performance Web site.

Oh ya, and one more point! You don't see VTC-Civic or any of the other 'non-Hyundai' owners putting down Hyundais. I respect VTC and a lot of the others, but I don't respect this guy.

Congrats on your new '03 Tib<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> It IS a sweet machine,
I've been in it and was impressed.
T.J. has the only one I've seen here in Fresno, he gets lots of stares and second looks...and compliments
here in the neighborhood. No matter what kind of car you get there will always be some one sneering at it.
I takes an incredible
ass*ole to diss someone's new car
post though. I'd love to have your car, lots of peeps would. Enjoy

If you are what it says you are, I would think you would be much more mature about something like this. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

No one $hitted on your parade when you bought your car, why you gotta do it to him.
