Well, I am happy with my car on it's, 1st long drive.
I went to Echuca, Victoria. With my wife and, mother inlaw.
Which is under, 300ks away from, where I live.
The drive was great, and to see what my car can do was, awesome.
Put on the cruise control and just, sit back and steer.
Hit the, ECO button as well for the long runs.
I am happy with how well, the car handled, going up the hills.
Happy with the steering and, the ride over the bumps.
With the ECO button on and, the travel. The car would have done, 700ks on the tank.
Damn traffic on the way out, would have stopped the car for reaching 700ks.
All and all, the ride, handling, comfort, and everything else about the car.
The cargo ...

hi guys,
I took inspiration from i30ManUK who posted how to remove the front doors and speaker assembly here (link) Removing the Door Card (front left) - Photo Guide..

Since he showed you the front here is a picture below of the REAR door panel. I will not show you how to remove the old speaker from the cone assembly as this was shown
by another user (There is a .pdf floating around which shows installation of speakers to the cone assembly). PM me I can send you the .pdf via email.

Be careful if you do the rear doors there are THREE Screws (look at that orange plastic with a screw in it left side of the photo). The other 2 screws are l...

Hyundai i30 Series II Active CRDi
Road Test

If Celine Dion is the Toyota Corolla of the pop-star world and Taylor Swift is the Mazda3 – a bit hotter and younger – then the Hyundai i30 is surely Katy Perry? All are exceedingly popular, cater to mass market audiences and, generally speaking, are entertaining. But where the Corolla lacks excitement and the Mazda3 is appealing "go-to" optio...

OK, some of you may have seen my road noise complaint post - this is now a fresh new post reviewing this car as an official owner.

TBH - I bought this car based on value for money rather than specifically wanting a Hyundai - I actually wanted the SEAT 1.2 TSi but the value of the i30 was too good to miss - so here I am lumbered with it :)

You should all know for starters that my new i30 came with Michelin Energy rather than Hankook tyres which might explain why the road noise was far better than I remembered from a previous test drive (the test car had Hankook tyres fitted).

Economy was excellent picking the car up from London area then driving it 130 miles home to Norfolk - the trip computer (if correct) sh...

Sat Nav
Hy guys,

this is a follow up thread on the other one - to be found here (link) Which antenna for GPS? - but as it diverged so much from the original thread title, I thought it would be better to create a new thread.

So, the basic idea was to upgrade from the normal (blue/white display) stereo to the oem satnav (LAN1050EHGD, 96560-A6000).

I tried today, and well, that did not work out as smoothly as I would have liked.....

There are several issues, that I hope you guys can help me resolve:

1) The OEM sat nav has a different connector for the antenna than the normal stereo.
 The normal radio has a nor...

Hi Guys I cannot seem to find any information on the OEM  B-pillar trim replacement for i30. I have uploaded the picture as well.
  Does anyone know if this is an expensive repair?
  How much cost I am looking at?
  Any suggestions for repair vs replace?

I bought an OEM nav unit 2nd hand, and now all I (probably) need is a GPS antenna, but which one?
Will this one fit? It has a FAKRA connector. (link) GPS Antenne Blaupunkt Travel Pilot RNS MFD Becker FAKRA: Elektronik

Many thanks!

Door Locking
I have had a diesel Hyundai i30CW s/w for about 8 months. 

About 3 months ago, the driver's door started to lock itself intermittently while parked in my garage.  All other doors opened normally. 
Yesterday, I parked it outside the garage for about 15 minutes and came back to find all doors were locked.
Luckily, I've had the key with me each time so far.  However, I'm concerned that the problem might happen when the keys are inside.
Advice please ?

To add to the various others - seems the recall is also out in NZ... can't directly link to it but.... - you will need to select year and make - however Campaign Number is: 51C013
