my advice to all rxs and gti owners

hyundai took alot of effort to design and tested the bodykits so that they have functionality when we drive at high speed

so do not change anything except adding stickers on the body..
if not it will have lots of air drag like proton wira SE and iswara SE........

i ain't joking
i once remove the airscoop but guess what happen ?
my fuel consumption increase ........because the airscoop does direct air flow !!

try to add stickers but no ralliart ,nismo, trd. it's very beng..
my suggestion is

HKS , BREMBO , TEIN......

they came stock in my gti accent according to my SA

I am not sure for the air scoop but the other bodykit, yes it is for better air flow when your car in high speed. The air pressure will press your car body down when your car is speeding.

Hyundai neither designed nor tested the bodykits. They were produced by XXX commissioned by KB. The air scoops are non-functional fakes, just like the fake tail pipes.

Can you tell us who your SA is? Stationed at which branch? I can't believe SAs are misleading people like this. Even my own SA pre-warned me those things are fake before I decided to purchase the car.

you are right. but maybe he meant the other way...he meant his FC is better. Cos the Airscoop actually create drag, because the air cannot go anyway but just drag the car. removing it will make it better.
