    Fingers crossed! I just did some math and guessing in my head from when others had recieved.
    What colour ultimate are you getting? I ordered a white ultimate!

    We ordered black. But will take pretty much any colour. I bugged our delarship to let me know when they get a blue or a lake silver in to be able to see them (lake silver was our second choice).. I loved both colours now that I’ve seen them real life (I wasn’t so keen on the pictures)

  3. Apparently there’s been a Hyundai shipment that’s just arrived at Port of Vancouver. Dealer in Kamloops saying I should have it by months end.=)

    The dealership has it, yes. I don't but probably could if I wanted/needed it

    I also got the call that the ship and vehicles have arrived in Van. Estimated date of arrival in Kamloops is the 27th but Kevin will call when they're notified that the vehicles are on the car transport trucks.
    I'm so excited about this!
  6. Have you folks given thought (duh, of course u have!) to ditching the stock rubber, using the rims for dedicated winter treads and moving to a lower profile tire and larger rim combo? I’m thinking +1” or +2” on the rim size - nothing too stoopid as I don’t wanna leave myself open to flatting on a pothole.

    I posted this some time ago, but I thought it would be appropriate here as well. Reminds me of where a some of us were a few months back:

    Yep, I'll be joining you to a sexier wheel.
  9. It’s going to be a bit of a crap-shoot as far as balancing tire wear, handling, rolling resistance, grip, drag coefficients (I believe engineering of stock rims took this into account(?).

    That’s awesome! It’s really good to hear more cars keep coming every week or two! Keep my hopes up!

  16. Fresh off the boat! Here she is, on the lot, in Kamloops. Just waiting on dealer to process paperwork so I can actually sit in one for the first time. Lol. #HopeILikeIt

    Shiny! I'm sure you'll like it.

  18. Thx! Looking at it in person was a *great* relief. The showroom display for colour options was full of multi-faceted, 4-inch square paint samples under fluorescent light. This is the ‘galactic grey’ and kinda reminds me of the softer, pastel-esque colours that Subaru and Ford have for their SUV’s and trucks, respectively.

    Ya, I really didn't like the grey in the brochure but it's much more interesting in person. And the blue that I got is a real shape-shifter. Blue one minute then seafoam green the next. I envy the choices available in the regular Kona. That Acid Yellow is very striking.

    I'd sure like to see side by side photos of the grey and the lake silver, because that looks an awful lot like mine, which was sold to me as the latter.
