    That is a NICE pic Timo ! (I've added it to my iPhoto Veloster album. I hope you don't mind). What's the percentage tint you have on those windows by the way?

    Cheers - Sparkplug

    20% tint on the top and rear and legal 35% tint on the side windows. The 20% tint on the top and back is a perfect match with the sunroof tint.

    I also have 20% roof, rear and back seat, 30% front, legal limit here is 25% from.

    If I can, I wish to have windshield tinted as well. It is Nov but I still feel the heat from windshield.

    I dealt with Earnhardt Hyundai in Scottsdale. By far the nicest people i have ever met. They had a Matt Grey Metallic one in the showroom with no front plate mount. Working with them to try and get one seeing we don't need a front plate here in AZ.

    The trucking company was hired by the dealer who I paid to have the vehicle shipped to Arizona. One important thing to keep in mind and protect yourself is to have the car insured starting the day you sign the papers not the day the vehicle arrives at your home. The insurance is imortatnt just in case the vehicle is damaged by hail etc. while on the truck. The truck left the dealer on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday am was in Phoenix for an early pm delivery. Will not forget the sight of the car comming off the truck The driver was surprised how many pepole came up and were inquiring about the car while traveling west.

    I'm probably gonna pull the trigger and put my deposit down for the VT A/T Ultimate White package tomorrow. Earnhardt N. Scottsdale quoted me $28,997.14 OTD - that's with Tint/Plate&Tire/Tax/Doc included. Is that a fair price?

    Though they said they have to drive it up from Tucson to Scottsdale so it will have 200 miles by the time I take it home.

    I just did a quick MapQuest trip calculator from the Tucson dealer to Scottsdale dealer, says it's 123 miles if you take the I-10 West route. What's the 77 mile difference? Is it possible the car has already been test driven that much in Tucson? Should I be concerned on that? Maybe the dealer was just overestimating on the mileage. I will ask him tomorrow.

    I would still have it trucked from Tucson. Ownwer's manual says for break in no constant speed for first 600 miles and keep rpm below 3000. Do not have them drive it from Tucson ! Negociate the trucking cost.

    Well they ended up selling that White VT in Tucson anyways before I ended up buying that one in Tuscon.

    Though I just heard from Tempe Hyundai a few days ago and they said they are getting a Marathon Blue Ult package allocated to them and I should have "dibs" on it when it arrives late this week. I think I'm gonna get it so I on't have to mess with trying to get it shipped or drive from out of town anywhere. Blue was my other color chose besides White anyways.
    The car won't have tint on it but they said can do it at the dealer for $289 with lifetime warranty. My brother in law knows a guy that does tint but I don't know how much he charges. Is that a good price for tint?

    Well the dealer called earlier, it looks like they got the car in. Gonna go down and check it out tonight, then pick it up tomorrow! Hopefully the Motozuma rebate deal will go through, too I just have to log in the site and print out my form.

    Just got back from the dealer with the car, here is a quick pic I took of it. Everything went smooth at the dealer, they were very helpful showing me all the options of the car ect. The only quirk that we found that did not work is when I paired my Galaxy Nexus phone to bluetooth it would not download/recognize my contacts all. Not sure why but will mess with it more later.
