Hello Fellow Members,

I am providing below the most popular modifications for the Hyundai Santa Fe. These modifications were performed by numerous owners and were scattered all over the web. The complete list is on my website (in profile). I decided to group them all in one place so it would be easier for owners to find them. Some of these mods I've done myself. If you feel like you have a modification that is not provided in this list free free to post them or the link to where they reside.

First and foremost, the Hyundai Service Technology Website known as Webtech, is an invaluable source for owners to reference the shop, electrical manuals online, and should be used in conjunction with any mod outline in the list below.
Webtech Online (http://www.hmaservice.com/) and a guide (http://santafemods.com/Mods/Webtech.htm) on how to use it.
