    Thank you so much for posting your experience! :)

    It looks easy enough and I'm happy to hear the color match was excellent. I haven't had a chance to order my moldings yet, but I will soon.

    Here are the 4 cheapest sites I found for mud guards for the 08 Elantra (and most other OEM accessories) * Price is PER pair, either front or back. (need both to do the whole car)

    These 2 are the cheapest "Regular" online stores. i.e. those with a friendly web site, some pictures (though may not be entirely accurate), etc..

    http://hyundaipartspeople.com -- $15.00 + $8.95 shipping total ($38.95)
    http://hyundai.dealerfit.com -- $14.04 + $7.95 shipping total ($36.03)

    These links lead you to a normal store with similar prices to the above, BUT there are links to go directly to a OEM parts catalog. If you order by the exact part number, you save. You need to be 100% sure of the part number, and they make you furnish your VIN to verify to prevent you from buying and then returning wrong parts. Both link you to the same parts database/probable drop-ship location, just different 'store front'.

    http://hyundai.partsdirect.com -- $12.25 + $9.95+ shipping total ($34.45 though may be higher--this was a baseline and they said it could be adjusted AFTER ordering)
    http://hyundai-parts.com -- $12.50 + $6.50 shipping total ($31.50 !)

    Obviously, I ordered from the last one. I also ordered the elusive cargo net for $17.50 with no extra shipping (most don't have the 07/08 proper net, only the older model ones or none in stock).

    As far as I could tell through numerous web site verifications, here are the correct Hyundai OEM part numbers for the Elantra:

    Cargo net: U8170-2H000 (08 specific -- 07 seemed to vary from a couple diff # but theoretically shouldn't since it should have the same chassis/post mounts?)
    Front Pair Mud Guards: 08460-2H100 (07 or 08)
    Rear Pair Mud Guards: 08460-2H500 (07 or 08)

    thanks again!

    Hi, I'm looking for a cargo net and mat for my '08. I could not find the cargo net on any of the sites you linked to, including the last one which I assumed you purchased yours from. Can you link directly to the page where you found the cargo net, please?

    btw, your 3rd link does not work for me at all.
  • fargondfargond Posts: 23
    All but the 3rd link worked. I accidentially had an extra . in the third link. It should be "hyundaipartsdirect.com". I can't link directly to the page since it's a search to trigger it.

    The Cargo net is not on many sites. The 3rd and 4th site above have it but you need to search the parts catalog by part # only, not browse the normal graphical showroom. When you connect to either site, the process is the same.

    On the 3rd link'd site, on the right lower frame it says: "OEM Parts Catalog" and a little below it it says: "2. Search by Factory Part Number"

    Or, on the 4th site, there is a link on the left side of the page that says: "Genuine Hyundai Parts" "Hyundai Replacement Parts". Click that link and a new frame will appear, hosted by "TradeMotion" (same for either site).

    In the search field, enter the Hyundai OEM part number for the cargo net (U81702H000) and select "Hyundai" in the (select make) drop-down list. Click search and the following should appear:

    ----------
    Item Number MSRP Core Price Price
    U81702H000 $25.00 $0.00 $17.50 (or $17.15 for the other site)

    CARGO NET- HD ELANTR
    ----------

    The 4th link above is the cheaper shipping link. I was able to order all 3 items for only $6.50 shipping vs. $10 or more at the other link.

    Also, you can find the net at PartsPeople site for $17.50 + $8.95 shipping:

    Thanks! Following your directions I found both the cargo net and mat, and ordered both from the 4th site just now. :)

    I also ordered the aftermarket body side mouldings from that ebay seller. Should have all by next week.
  • ez888ez888 Posts: 39
    I ordered the front and rear mud guards as well from Hyundai-parts. For the others that ordered them, do you how long shipping takes?

    Also, I looked into the cargo mat and cargo tray for the 2008 Elantra. I didn't order either yet, but thought I'd list the part numbers I got from Hyundai just in case someone wanted them.

    2008 Elantra Cargo Mat: 081452H000
    2008 Elantra Cargo Tray: U81202H000

    I just placed my order yesterday morning (just before I posted the summary after a fair amount of research). I will let you know when I receive my order. Everything shows "on order" for me.

    The word I got from 1 other site plus one ebay seller is that the mud guards are on backorder and not expected in until early august. I think a poster above said the same thing they heard from their dealer. I dont know if this site is any different.

    In any case, the savings was so considerable on both shipping and the guards themselves, throwing in the net cost almost nothing comparably. If it takes a while to come in I guess that's fine. Wish I would have found this 2 months ago when I got the car!
  • ez888ez888 Posts: 39
    i'll post here too if i hear anything about my order. mine shows "processing" or something like that.

    i know what you mean about being out of stock maybe. plenty of dealers have the front guards but no rears. i even called some charlotte dealers as i was there for business the last 3 weeks- they said they had them on order for almost a month already. we'll see i guess. i just want them asap so i don't have to worry about issues with pebbles or the darn asphalt the've been throwing down to repair the roads around here.

    i also may pick up the cargo tray for the trunk as well. it seems decent since we always throw a lot of crap back there that may be muddy or wet. we'll see though.

    so far so good with the car- very fun!

    enjoy!

    Hi, I went to the 4th site and tried to order the mud guards but it doesn't show what color it is, how do you guys get the color that matches the color of your car?
  • ez888ez888 Posts: 39
    i was told the only color for the oem mud guards are black. i remember seeing them on the dealer lot on various colored cars and i think they all were black.

    I received my moldings today from an eBay seller (sportwing). Oddly enough everything was marked Dawn-Ent on the instructions and box. They must just drop-ship for them. I paid less than Dawn's own price :)

    However.. I actually am a bit disappointed in them - they were not what I exactly expected. I haven't installed them yet, but they are nowhere near the "bulk" I expected to get. I don't honestly see how they will be adding much depth to the door to take the hit from another errant door instead of the rest of the metal itself (depending on the shape of the door that might hit mine of course).

    I have had other cars with much thicker moldings, meaning thicker sticking out farther from the metal, plus wider as well. The pictures seemed to make it appear they were bigger than they are.

    Anyway, as soon as I get my $300 damage that I already have on the door repaired (since it's just above, under and below -- yes, 3 spots -- where I will be installing this molding on) I will get this installed to hopefully provide a bit better protection.

    Again, for $135 shipped, I am a bit disappointed in what they actually are. But we'll see if they help once I can get them installed.

    Thanks, ez888!!

    I guess it is better than no protection at all. That's the only door mouldings available for this vehicle at this time.

    Does anyone know where I can purchase seat covers for the front and rear seats of an 08 Elantra SE. I've tried several from Pep Boys and they do not fit properly on the front seats, and the rear doesn't fit at all. My interior is light gray and I would like to have the seats covered since my 19 year old daughter will be driving the car, and she is an artist/swimmer/slob. Thanks Marlene

    i ordered my mud guards on 6/27 and they were at my door on 7/10. i installed them this afternoon. as others said, i turned the front wheels and installed the front guards. then i took the wheels off for the rears. not too bad. actually was good to be familiar with how to remove the wheels on the car; however, pretty much no different than other cars. i installed the guards and even got a good cleaning on the rims while the wheels were off- wow it's easy that way.

    enjoy.

    Do you have to drill holes or just remove the screws currently there and put the mud guards in place?
  • ez888ez888 Posts: 39
    no hole drilling- just removing and replacing screws like you said. there is on screw that comes with an anchor type thing for the bottom screw of the rear guard. you'll see why you have to use that one. everything was extremely easy.
  • I have replaced my rain guards at least 3 times. No matter what I do it seems to fall off. I have used “special” glue, “special” double-sided tape, and cleaned the area where I would eat off it…everything! Does anyone else have problems with their rain guards or is it just me?
  • ez888ez888 Posts: 39
    I am looking to get a hitch on my 2008 Elantra to only use it for a bike rack. I already have a trunk rack that I use, but would prefer a hitch rack as you still have easy access to the trunk.

    I looked online and found some affordable hitches. Anyone install one? Or anyone go through your dealer for one? I'm thinking Class 1 is good enough. Am I right?

    Thanks!
