Wesley Couture: 2011 Hyundai Elantra

Wesley Couture had purchased the 2011 Hyundai Elantra as an efficient replacement for his V8 powered daily, and had intended to pass the car down to his son when he was ready. His intentions to keep the car stock only lasted about a year, before he discovered Korean aftermarket options for the Hyundai. The rest is history.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
"I would say the wing or wheels. It's a tough call between the two. The wing just for the fact I have always wanted one on a car and it's awesome because my son loves it, or the wheels because they just suit the car so well and the concave is nuts."

FUTURE MODIFICATIONS:
"Next step that should have been done by now but work always gets in the way would be my rear seat delete and half cage."
