I wouldn't even call this a kill, seeing as how the Tiburon in no way stands a chance against the 6. On top of just owning a 6, i have the v6 mtx, which totally puts the tiburon in a different class. I would not go looking for a race from a car like that, but if somebody else is getting a little cocky, i wont hesitate to put them in their place. So, I'm driving down route 50 when some guy in a Tiburon starts tailgating me and then slows down, and then flys up on my ass again. Im trying not to pay attention, but when he tried to pass me I just wasnt going to let that happen. I was going about 45 in 3rd gear, so I dropped it into second and shot up to around 55-60, shifted into 3rd again. His nose never even caught up to my back bumper. Not really a kill worth bragging about, but I enjoy letting people know that the 6 is nothing to mess with.

Speaking of a tiburon, I was comming out of the hardware store today and noticed A newer one parked next to me. So i checked it out while i was getting in the door(it's not a bad looking car in my opion), When an older man stopped me to ask about my 6, and tell me it looked "sharp". I couldn't help to think that although the tiburon had features to make it look fast and sporty, the 6 has a classic sports car look to it, timeless in a sense. Basicly it's rather humble about it's ability, and i like that about 6's. I drove home feeling like a million bucks. It was great.

hey man, im def with you that hyundai's suck, but it is a pretty decent kill, i mean, those cars run a 16.0 1/4 mile, which really isnt far away from our 15.7 (2nd gen v-6) good kill nonetheless!

For the price and what you get, I think the Tiburon is a cool little car. What is the MSRP? $13000? Something like that.

I do think they are attractive. (But I would peronally NEVER buy a car like that--that is because I have trouble paying good money for any cheap car just to have a new car--I couldn't imagine paying $250/month for a brand new Sentra or something like that).

Truthfully, the Tib is not really a slouch. It makes 140 horsepower even in base trim out of its 2.0-liter four, so it can be fairly zippy. However, it's still no match for a MX-6 GT or LS :)

Before I got my 6 I went to test drive one of these. They really aren't bad cars; smooth shifts, enough power to go when asked (although definitely not as much as our cars), the interior is well done and they're attractive (they are hyundais though...). If I had to get a cheap new car though, this would prob. have been it (seeing as Mazda stopped making the mx-3/mx-6, those bastards!)

I live right in Fairfax City, my neighborhood is right where Route 50 and 123 meet. There aren't too many 6's around there, so its kinda cool to have a car that isnt really common. I'm at James Madison University now, there are a couple of 6's here, mostly the 4 banger, and one M edition.

Rex did you mean you have a crx that does 10.7 in the quarter, or in an 1/8 of a mile? That would be one of the fastest CRX's in the world if you had a 10.7 CRX in the quarter! If I completey misunderstood you then let me know please. Really confused right now???!!! I didn't think the 1/8 mile speed was measured all that much usually.

yeah aggied the time was in the 1/8 around here where i live there are no quarter mile tracks within 100 miles of me but we have a4 1/8 mile tracks. actually where i usually go used to be a quarter mile track until people couldnt stop and instead of clearing out the trees they just made the track a 1//8 mile track.
