I love this, rtrski! We should have a unicorn bumper sticker! Or maybe K5 Optima Store could get us some badges made up.

A single horn for the hood, like half of the set on a Longhorn Cadillac, would be nice too, but maybe a little tricky for pedestrians...

I don't get the "dumbed it down vs. the G90" comment though. The G90 starts at 6K over the highest possible MSRP of the K900 (2019)....which wasn't going for MSRP anyway. I got mine out of the dealership's showroom floor with < 20 miles on it at 11.2K below MSRP (with VIP package). I would've had a hard time getting a fully loaded Telluride for that price, since those were selling at a premium. I did speak briefly to a Genesis dealer when considering my K900 and it was clear they weren't wiggling on price much at all. 70K was within my affordability ballpark but not within my willingness to buy; that's just dumb money for any car.


The 2 big items are V8 and Panoramic Roof. If you could get this in a K900, why bother even looking at a G90, right? No good reason to drop these other than they had to leave something that only the G90 could have.

Tree huggers can argue the V6 all they want, but if the company is still making the V8 (same exact one since 2015) then at least provide it as an option. It is a great motor and the main reason I won't give up my 2015.

No "tree hugger" is driving any of the K900s
