FAVORITE MODIFICATION

"My favourite "modification" of my Genesis Coupe is a hard question to answer. My favourite aspects of my Genesis Coupe has to be the paint, headlights, and fitment. After several months of deciding on a colour I stuck with the blue roots of my Genesis and incorporated a bit of green - creating what is painted now, a custom teal. The headlights still give me that "wow" every time I see my Genesis. I got the idea of doing jewels in the Genesis headlights originally from Honda/Acuras. With those cars everything is interchangeable with little to no issues, when I saw people retrofitting jewels I told myself that I had to be the first one to do it with the Genesis Coupe. It was trial and error until I got it perfected. The headlights are like the eyes of the car, it either breaks or makes the car. For the front end of my vehicle the headlights give it that much more of an aggressive look. Lastly, the fitment - let's just leave it as TIGHT..."
