Rally TOTALED!! Shopping for new Veloster!
This is a discussion on Rally TOTALED!! Shopping for new Veloster! within the Veloster Turbo Purchasing forums, part of the Veloster Turbo Forum category; Sooooo as an early Christmas gift 5 days before Christmas an unattentive driver ran a very red light and totaled my Rally!! Im still coming ...
Ouch. The matte blue (and blue interior) are the only unique feature for the Rally edition really (which is actually just an optional colour for the Australian market). The wheels you can just go aftermarket for. Hopefully you can salvage parts from the wreck that you might want to keep...

What about the upgraded suspension?
You would need to speak to someone in the know, I assume the suspension tweaks (if even that dramatic) made it into the current models too. Personally I would (and have) install coilovers anyway And what is the white stuff on your car? It's about 110 degrees outside here!

ohh man I'm so sorry I would be so heart broken if my rally was wrecked. You should salvage the wheels if possible, they are definitely sought after!

Could try for the R-spec, I think the suspension is mostly the same, but the car isn't as unique...
This makes two confirmed down that I know of.

If you love something set it
free, unless it's a tiger
Damn that sucks, but at least you're okay and alive. If you really liked the Rally, stick with it and search for another one. It took me nearly 4 months to get an elite white with blue trim interior back in 2014. But if you can salvage those wheels and they're in good condition, can I call dibs? :P

Well, you'll miss... The quicker ratio steering, which we haven't found out how to swap over from the rspec/rally to the turbo. The shifter is better, but easily upgradable. The light weight wheels. Finally the suspension.
You won't miss the maintenance on the paint and the fear of never quite being able to repair it. The heated seats are nice. Depending on how much you planned on upgrading stuff, if at all, you won't feel guilty about replacing already upgraded parts that you've paid for.
Really, if you had planned on upgrading suspension parts and wheels on the Rally befote than just save some money, get some extra creature comforts and get the Turbo. If you were happy with the car before than get another Rally because the Turbo is quite a bit less engaging to drive before upgrades.

'14 VT Vitamin-C base manual
bigbird i dont believe the rack was quickened, the r-spec had different "sensitivity" which can be programmed into your existing car if your dealer is privvy. i had mine done in late 2014.

I would say unless you just want another Veloster. you should really get the Elantra Sport.. Its Actually an upgrade.. bigger stock breaks better suspension. the latest and grates form the 1.6tgdi. An actual Front mount intercooler.. Nasty loud stock exhaust. and you are starting with a better base platform.
