I'll just disagree with your opinion.
Hyundai has shown proof that they can make a very good car. But there engineers have yet to show proof that they can dance between the thin line of money and fun.
I my opinion, fun to drive and cheap is an art form, and most companies have shown that they can do it. Hyundai on the other hand, Its just a matter of time before they find the line and cross it.
Then again maybe your right, I just need to wait for Lotus to slap a sticker on their car "tuned by Hyundai" (Couldn't resist...)
