I don't think they're after BMW. It's clear this is their competition.

I would wait for the new civic r type release anyway if I was shopping for a hatch back that looked like that. It's turbo with 300 ponies and its Honda.

Fanboys? Look at your profile pic. This is a BMW forum, so yes, I would expect fanboys. One individual does not take the magic with him by the way.

Talk about fanboys.... sheesh.

although our disagreement with the transmissions (lol)...

I agree with you 100000% on this one. Sadly, yes, it is, for most.

If there slogan is "N, the most powerful letter in the world", they surely will have crossed the line. Either way, this is pretty pathetic.

Now we will see fake N badges all over Elantra's, Genesis, Sonata's. And I'm sure Huydai forums will now see threads like;
"Just tuned my Genesis to 400hp!!", reply "Yeah but come on it's still not an N"

Hyundai has come a LONG way from where they began! I remember when I used to group them along with the likes of Daewoo, Geo, etc. However, I think they need to pump their brakes (see what I did there? Automotive double entendres lol), and work their way up the hierarchy, rather than trying to dethrone a king. Get past Honda's SI, or Nissan's R, etc.. Then try to chomp down M division.

Till then....piss off...

Yeah, unfortunately for Hyundai, the letter "N" is problematic in the US market because of the "N-word" thing. "N" is a politically correct substitute for discussing a pervasive racial and political issue here. Sad? Absolutely. But it's a reality they'll have to face.

While I'm excited about the car, I would never say something like, "I drive an N-car," because I'd be afraid of someone misinterpreting what I say as intending to substitute "N" for you-know-what.

Yup even 10 years ago or so their cars were still a fucking joke. But then again many of the first BMW cars were fucking garbage too.

As far as I remember, N stands for the first letter of the name of the location/facility where these cars are/were developed in South Korea. Kind of weird in my opinion.
They could have come up with better idea, also IMO.

As many others have said. This is actually a good thing for the autonotive industry

Competition is a double edged sword. Sometimes it results in a much better product. Sometimes it forces a race to the bottom. Only time will tell. But why not roll the dice and see.

After all, imagine if the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord never existed. Can you imagine what kind of horrible noisy shit boxes we'd be driving. German cars if the 80s were cool back then,but aside from the high end, quality was bad. We won't even talk about American cars.

What I do find very disturbing is the name of the division and overall colors and theme they are promoting which is obviously an m rip off. You have to wonder if the hiring of Bierman is also a ploy to just give the brand credibility as he is mr bmw m. I'm also going to sound like a xenophobic nut a little bit (in the farthest thing from that) but it's also disturbing if this is accepted by any of us. One of the great features of the automotive performance culture we have is that everyone is trying to beat each other in their own way. This whole blatant rip off thing hasn't been a prevalent feature of our culture so far. If this changes its bad times ahead in afraid

If Hyundai could do like Lexus and stake out their own path (like F division) and they can do it better then bmw/Lexus/amg then I'm all for it. But by copying the logo/branding/colors then this should be completly rejected for what it is.
