    First kill! - I6 vs V6

    530i (I6) vs Genesis Coupe (V6)

    So I was on an unknown highway in The Triangle at night...
    I saw a Hyundai Genesis Coupe doing about 70 mph. He had a loud exhaust, weaving in and out of traffic; and obviously testing a few of us as he sped by.

    (Now, just for some background: I was actually trying to get a Genesis Coupe when I purchased my BMW. And it ended up being the better option for multiple reasons. After having it for a while, I definitely have no regrets about my choice. So when I saw that coupe ripping up the highway, I just knew I had to try him, y'know?! But back to the kill..)

    I sped up and got next to him. By this time, we're both doing about 80 mph while trading the lead and a few glares back and forth. I take off on him and sure enough, he tries to keep up. We're both driving aggressively and maintaining speed. Luckily, there was little to no traffic at that point so we had plenty of room to breathe. I remember the Genesis coupe upping the ante a bit, and zooming by me doing about ...MPH...

    When I looked around there was still plenty of space, so I saw his bet and raised him as well. I shifted down for more acceleration/RPM's, floored it, then shifted up and zoomed by him doing a little over ...MPH... and got about 4 or 5 cars in front of him. After that he kind of fell back, so i did as well; allowing him to catch up. We drove near each other; still exchanging the lead here and there for a few minutes. It was cool to see another driver that just enjoyed doing it well and having some fun with it.

    I got off the highway shortly after that run for gas and saw another Genesis Coupe at the station. The driver and I ended up talking about the run I just had, tuners vs luxury/sports, what cars we had our eyes on next, etc. It was a nice way to end a night of driving and made me want a Genesis Coupe even more now, seeing one in action.


    Till next time..
    Peace and be safe.

    Your 530 I6 is a large 4 door sedan, luxury/comfort oriented. The Genesis Coupe is not. They come in 2 flavors, turbo I4 and n/a V6. Don't be mistaken: they are not M3 equivalents, but in the proper hands the I4 can be brought up to 300+ rwhp, the V6 comes with 340hp in stock form, several mods can bring them to 500+ rwhp without pulling the engine out! . Their bodies are said to be 30% more rigid than the E46 and E90's at about the same weight. There are tons of aftermarket parts for both models. And they have the Brembo brake and Quaife LSD as factory options. Let's not mention prices... My previous car before the M6 V10 E63 was... a Genesis Coupe.

    I agree 100%. These are some of the reasons I wanted a Genesis Coupe in the first place. I went hard at a couple of dealers for one, but the credit didn't line up. I either didn't have enough credit history, or the bank would say the car was too high priced/too old/etc. So I went with the nicest car in the area I could find for the best price. That ended up being an E60. I don't have any regrets, though. My plan is to get the Genesis as my next car.

    I went and test drove the V6 coupe and it was definitely not a slouch. I had a lot of fun on that test drive, thanks to the dealer letting me go out on my own. He actually let me drive the turbo 4 and V6 back to back. I was not nearly as impressed with the turbo 4 (obviously), but that V6 did surprise me a bit. I actually talked some numbers with him, but ultimately decided to pursue an old dream and went with an E36 M3 instead.
    Glad you had fun chasing one down out on the roads though!

    Ah man! I test drove about 4 of those coupes in the pursuit of getting one. I definitely liked the 3.8 V6 better than the turbo. I still plan on getting one after I've had enough of this BMW...or paid it off...whichever comes first lol.
