Hi guys

So I thought since my new-to-me i30 has clocked just past 10K km, I would give a little write-up on my findings, what I like and what I don't, and what I have learnt.

I purchased my i30 through Hypercar on the 6th of June after much uhm-ing and aah-ing and frivolously researching cars on the net, asking people for opinions and generally walking away with more questions than answers.

My ideal car that I had in my head was either a Mitsubishi Lancer GLS 2.0l, as they have crappy resale value in SA and they are rock solid cars so they can be found for very little outlay. However, the 2l MIVEC engine is quite thirsty and it lacked some of the mod cons of other vehicles. My other option was an older car,...

Hi All , having been quoted £240 from a Hyundai dealer to supply, fit and re-program a new TPMS sensor to my 2008 i30 I resorted to trawling the web and found RL Automotive they were quoting £51.45 delivered for a self programming sensor, I called them and they told me once fitted just drive for 15 minutes and it will self program to the ECU. I was a bit sceptical but ordered one, a local tyre shop fitted it and just charged £6 for the balancing. Drove home and within 5 minutes the dash warning light and display picture had gone ,magic !

Hello, this is my first post in here.

I've been reading a bit in here yesterday, but I couldn't find quite the same problem as I have. Even though I've found some problems I had too (headlights busting frequently, passenger side read door handle broke without any hard force put to it), I couldn't find anything about radio.

So, a couple of days ago I was driving during nighttime, and I hit a pothole at 90km/h. After 2-3 seconds sound stopped coming through the speakers. The radio works fine, CD, USB, FM/AM, no errors, it's just that there is no sound at all, no matter the volume. I'm not sure what could be the problem, and I'm kinda not sure what to look for exactly. Is it the connection between the speakrs and the radi...

Hi folks,

I'm new to the forum and new to the Hyundai experience. I just recently purchased my 2013 i30 Style CRDi 1.6 and am currently getting to grips with what's under the hood. In the first pic you'll see 4 numbered items that I need help with in identifying. I think I know what these bits are but I want to be sure. Numbers 1-3 are for sure sensors but what sensors and 4, is it PCV valve or a breather tube?

What is this item bolted to the firewall?

Key Fob
Hi, I bought one of these the other day www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161350382019 when my key blade snapped off and lost the pin. It includes the spring.
Swapped the bits inside from existing fob and put them into the new shell. A word of warning - the original fob was VERY hard to break open, seemed to be superglued together! Theres a video here which makes it look easy.

So I finally bought a new trailer on the weekend, a nice deep-side heavy duty 7x4 with 5 leaf springs.  I attached the tow bar to the i30, and having never used a square couple tow hitch had the old guy at the trailer shop check it for me (got the thumbs up).  Took it nice and easy, of course, but the i30 gearing suddenly made a lot of sense.  The low first gear is great for hill starts with a load on the trailer, and I noticed that I was typically using a gear lower than normal.  I am a believer in not using excessive throttle when towing, but rather to gently lope along using gears sensibly, and if that means not driving at the speed limit all the time, that's ok.  I didn't see much 6th gear use.

You can definitely feel the tra...

Hello all you awesome i30 fans and please bid me a fair welcome to your tribe!

I have been using this website for years to get answers about my i30, but alas, now I need your help for an answer I cannot find.

I recently put some 18" Rims on my beloved vehicle and have been hunting around for the correct tyre size. However, while the front tyres needed to be a specific size so that the speedo wasnít out by too much, Iím trying to go slightly wider on the rear wheels so that I can get a more common tyre size thatís much cheaper.

The wheels came off a Lancer Ralliart and had 215/45 R18 tyres on it, which made my speedo out by 3.6% too slow, causing risk to speeding fines.
