To include a photo in a message is still the same as in the old Town Hall. You cannot upload photos directly from your computer into a message within a discussion. Your photo must reside elsewhere. Some have used www.photopoint.com (free!) to load their photos into a private folder and then post them within a message.

Here's how:

To get this:

image

Use this coding, but replace the ( and ) with < and >:

(img src="http://a332.g.akamai.net/7/332/936/0001/www.edmunds.com/pictures/40836.jpg")

Or: (img src="Photo URL address")

To make your photo a link like this:

image

do this:

(a href="Page URL address")(img src="Photo URL address")(/a)

Remember, posting copyrighted photos is a no-no. Unless, of course, you own the copyright.

Hope this helps!

    Hi,


    Have not included photo here, but you can find it at http://photos.yahoo.com/dinoq62 .

    I am from Singapore and own a silver (pewter) SF. My brush gaurd looks different from those that I've seen for the USA market.

    Also, note the body trim over the wheels.

    this is just a sample of my front Santa Fe as well as the color match. I will post my real Santa Fe picture later when I have my CD changer work and the wood dash install. Yes! I do have that front grill guard too.

    Jason-Where did you order the brushed aluminium dash kit from? How hard is it to install? Has it been pretty scratch resistant? It looks great!
  • My kit is made by Wood View. I purchased it through The Auto Dash Emporium. The price was reasonable and they were great in helping me decide on a kit. I am extremely happy with it. If you go to buy, compare the different manufacturers. They all include different pieces in the kits and have different sub kits. So you must weigh how bad you want certain pieces versus spending a lot more $ to get them. It is not to difficult to install. You use a hair dryer to heat the pieces and then apply them. They stick right on. I honestly don't know how scratch resistant they are as I am careful not to find out if you know what I mean. Hope this Helps. Ciao

    Hi f16crewchief:

    Why your SaFe have 3 pedals?
    Are U driving a SaFe w/ standard transmission?

    How's the pedal covers work?

    Other than driving your SaFe, are u a fight jet pilot? Just curosity.

    -Bill
  • Yes BillTung, I have the 5 speed SaFe. I personally do not like the auto trans. I enjoy the "driving experience." I feel more connected to the car and the road if I control the shift patterns. The purpose of the pedals is first to provide more "grip." This way your feet do not slide off. I think they work good and look sharp. As to my occupation, I am an F-16 Fighting Falcon Crew Chief. I am the mechanic. Although I am working on finishing my Bach. Degree so I can in fact go to flight school for the USAF. In time. In the meantime I will enjoy driving my SaFe and working on one of the worlds premiere Air to Ground Fighter Aircraft.

    Several SaFe owners wrote that they have replaced the original, factory-installed speakers with other speakers. Are the original speakers that bad? I did not hear them yet, but I thought it to be an advantage to have pre-installed speakers... Until now, I have always transferred my Altec Lansing speakers (ALS693) to a new car.
  • wales1wales1 Posts: 90
    I replaced my factory speakers because the Hyundai installed ones would blow with the system I have installed. The Hyundai speakers are paper and cheap rubber ring, which really can distort the sound. I also installed Dynomat, and let me say it really does cut down on road noise, like 80-90 % reduction.

    Hi F15Crewchief:

    Thanks for your feedback! I also like manual transmission, but it is not available in Canada.

    Want to know how's the acceleration from stop, will it still sluggish from 0-50km?

    I just saw a blue SaFe like your's parked on the street this afternoon, very attractive color.

    - Bill
  • I have no problem with the acceleration of my 2.4 w/manual. As anyone knows its always a little better. I also realize that I am driving a sport utility which I purchased to be a "family mover." I dont have real high expectations. If I wanted acceleration I would have bought a sports car. Ciao.

    Hey Bill..what is that hanging from underneath your SFe in the rear. Two yellow looking straws with a red ball on it?
  • billtungbilltung Posts: 255
    It costs me CDN$4 in a sales!
  • tulpenhamtulpenham Posts: 32
    Billtung, I suppose you have seen that there is a thread about static electricity in the SF-forum.
    My suggestion: post your anti-static tail photograph there and explain how it works.

    Meanwhile, I will put post #2000 here at Edmunds LOL!!!

    I want to share my picture to keep up with all of you. When I finished shoot this picture I run to Hannah right away. There is nothing wrong with her but I am just afraid she might fell down.

  • wales1wales1 Posts: 90
    Hung..you must have some really BAD drivers in San Fran area if you have to put those STOP lights on your bumpers. Hope that when or if you get hit from people looking at the SFe, it wont cost you an arm and a leg to get it fixed. Again...some of the accessories you have on your ride are ok, but some are a wee bit too much if you ask me, again..its your ride, and to each his/her own. If your happy that is all that matters.
  • tulpenhamtulpenham Posts: 32
    I agree with you, wales1. IMO Hung's car is a bit overdone but then again it's his ride... At first, he wanted to buy an RX300 before he knew the SaF. I suppose he bought all the extra's of the money he had left from not buying the RX300 ;)
  • hung0820hung0820 Posts: 426
    Actually I was planning to cut out the word stop and leave only the light-lenses but then parking in San Francisco they can break my lenses. So I am pretty undecided what I should do. Should I cut it out or leave at is it.

    I have asked most of my friends and relatives: Some say tight to leave the stop and some say no! Recently vote about equally. Still undecided!

    ***This rear guard comes with it*** I did not intension to put it on. I can simply cut the word out and leave as the light-lenses only. I really need some vote to decide If I should leave the "Stop" or "Cut" it out. I have good machine to cut it and polish the edges too.***

    Is it just me or your interior pictures on your site is not up and running?
  • tulpenhamtulpenham Posts: 32
    Your car's rear will look much better without the stop-words! Suggestion: do one sign first and leave the other, so you can compare the 2 different signs and decide what to do.
  • hung0820hung0820 Posts: 426
    My Interior project will be done by late next week. I am in the process of doing the Windows/Doors and Seats project. I really need help on the Seats project here please!
    I want to show the entire seats interior for the Santa Fe. Mine is gray leather. If you have different seats interior please post the picture here so that I can drop in it my site if you don't mine. I just barely finish with half way of the seat headrest view screen last night. As you know I still have much more work to do.

    For my "STOP" lights; should I cut it to "OVAL", "ROUND", "SQUARE", or "OTHER" that you can suggest. I only have one choice; once I cut out; that's it. No more backup to bring it back.
  • tulpenhamtulpenham Posts: 32
    That's difficult Hung. Do you mean that you will create a hole with that shape? I think OVAL would look best since there are many ovalish shapes in the SaF, but it's your choice of course.
  • hung0820hung0820 Posts: 426
    Actually the plastic with the word "STOP" covered over the light-lense. All I need to do was cutting the the plastic that covered over the lense and that's it. It is not difficult me because I have all equipment to do it. I was thinking of "OVAL" and "Square-with round corners". What do you think? Oval or Square with round corners?
  • tulpenhamtulpenham Posts: 32
    Hello Hung,
    Sorry to keep you waiting with my reply. I think it's the best idea to make it square with round corners! You are right about that!
  • hung0820hung0820 Posts: 426
    Yes! I think I am going to make a square with round corners. Therefore, It is hard for me to make the decision since the first place. I think the square with round corners are going to be very nice.

    Nice contribute on the picture there Bill Tung. I really like it...
