Hyundai giving iPad with new car
Looks like RIM missed the boat on this one.

It's only with the Equus which is truly a gorgeous car.
I go to the dealership nearby every so often as I own a Gen Coupe and they're really nice.
If it was the same car with a mercedes emblem it would easily be $60,000+
Affordable luxury at it's finest.
They announced this a while ago though

My question to you would be, would you pay $50000 for Hyundai with so many better choices out there. No doubt it is a nice car, though I get your reason for the comment, now if Mercedes or BMW advertised the same thing I'd be more agreeable with your reasoning.

I was at a seafood restaurant in Paris (St. Germain) last week (Restaurant Paris - Le Bar a huitres - SITE OFFICIEL) and they handed out menus on iPads. The restaurant wasn't "trop cher" either, I believe it was about 130 euros for three, and I recall a bottle of gewurztraminer, smoked salmon, escargot and Dover sole. I used my Playbook to take photos of my smoking dates...très mignon d'ailleurs of course! Yes, the French still love to smoke....

Hyundai has completely transformed its image. Its already one of the top selling manufacturers in the u.s. Not because it's cheap. There is nothing cheap about their new lineup.
Sonatas look better than any car in their class.
The Genesis Coupe is definitely a head turner and drives like a dream (i'd know)
My brother has a g37 coupe and even he was impressed, as are most people when they see it's a Hyundai.
They're holding their value better than most cars. Bought mine 2 years ago and it's only lost $4500 which isn't much at all in terms of depreciation.
Check the Equus out on the Hyundai website for full features. You'll be surprised to find it has features even mercedes/bmw/lexus/infinity don't.

Haha I just got a shiny red Hyundai Elantra (they're flying off the lot) but got the regular paper owners manual. Hyundai has really stepped up their game. I'm impressed. But when I was rocking the Playbook while waiting in their showroom, they had never seen one before. This time they were impressed.

meh thats all i gotta say. anything can be used for what ever you want. when ever i go to eat were any normal blue collar person eats, if the place has a website i download the pdf menu off their site. mostly to save on paper and so i can get the heads up and order faster.

Better because of the name?
Seriously though, not trying to argue, simply look at the Hyundai performance.
It's quickly become a top performance drift/road course car and set a world record on a drift course (can't remember which one)
The V6 3.8 Coupe and 2.0T are probably the best you can buy in respective RWD class.
Both have also seen overwhelming after market support.
EDIT: It was at Pike's Peak (road course)
Genesis Coupe sets new RWD Time Attack record at Pikes Peak

op,how did rim missed the boat on this one?. there is nothing wrong with innovation because it makes a difference and rim is all about it.now back to the hyundai giving away a free ipad.if it was me, i would take the car and leave the ipad on the car agent's desk for the ladies.ipad is not for me in any way possible.ok,lets say for instance if rim starts selling pb's with ferrari,lexus,and ford.where does that leave apple then?everyone is copying everyone today like apple coming out with imessage to counter rim's bbm.there is nothing more to say.

Camry, Maxima, Mazda (not sure the badge) are ones I was referring to the Sonata.
But anyway, to each their own as was earlier said.
If I can get the same car (personally believe the style is very nice on the Genesis coupe too) for less money than a similar one that's $10,000 less and badged as a bmw then I'm clearly going with the less expensive one.

However, our next car may be a Hyndai Equus instead of a BMW, Mercedes or Audi. I already have a Mercedes now so I want to drive a different car. An Audi was a consideration but I just don't like that big ugly front grill.
The Equus is a great car. I like to try it out instead of getting the S-class, 750i or A8.

to me it's the nissan versa - cheap car, with lots of headroom and legroom for the 6 ft 6 guy in the back seat.
tried out hyundais, only the sonata would fit me.
and yes, it's a gimmick for a restaurant to have to order using an ipad? all i got to say is the menu better include hp sauce, to mask the flavor of the sub-par dishes served there...Bold 9930 - 22.214.171.1240, through Verizon

I think Hyundai's have come a long way but they are hampered but the generations that grew up with hyundais in thier bad times. (pony anyone?).
Until that generation is gone, Hyundai will still have the stereotype of making crappy cars.
I for one like the new Tucson.
