Great to see all the excitement around the new Tucson, I know its not SO new to some of us. but with summer arriving, we may be looking into accessorizing our Tucson's for extended capability like roof racks or hitches so we can add on bike carriers, roof boxes etc.

I may have caught your recent post focusing more on your running boards. But also notice above you appear to have installed Hyundai's version of the hood deflector. I've found one or two aftermarket versions which appear visually different enough to make me think they're by a different manufacturer. And so far there's been no such deflector listed on Hyundai's site here stateside, even searching the PART NO. referred to in your other thread.

Curious that up to a couple days ago I had been able to back into the illustration shown below without other details on the Hyundai.ca Accessories section. But, alas it's now vanished:

Have you any purchase, installation and performance experience to share?

Yes yes, thanks for noticing my threads and hope im not spamming too much. As much as I am not a fan of hood deflectors or side visors, I think it looks pretty sharp on Tucson as it has a bit of an eyebrow look to it and joints directly over the grill - not disturbing the lines that make up the fascia of the vehicle.

the one you had seen on the Hyundai Canada site is exactly the item. Purchase was ho-hum and not too interesting and it affixes to the hood of the vehicle with pedestals that are double sided taped to the hood at a number of points across the front. Cleaning the hood and spending time making sure the pedestal areas are clean and dry are very important. Other than that, its lexan, tinted and any light scratches just buff out with mild rubbing compond or car polish.

Aesthetically it blends in with a mild aggressiveness and its right against the front curvature of the hood which could lead to a lot of wear from road debris. it does curl in under the lip of the hood to provide maximum coverage in that regard.

I can take some close ups if you would like, later on.

I have a bud on another forum in Vancouver and I've used his friend stateside to send him random small stuff. So, nice gesture if you're willing to facilitate getting one onto my wife's ride. Your pics and description go a long way in compelling me to 'bust a move'. The price may be cheaper for the alternate online aftermarket option, but amongst other things the busy 'lip' and absence of any spec detail anywhere in the content leave a bit to be desired. Have you any installation blurb or other literature that accompanied yours? Occasionally there's valid reason the dealer's price is higher.
