Bulbs
Over the last 5 months both the low beams, a back light, a numberplate light and the cabin lights have blown out.  :'(  :crazy1:
I have read other older threads about similar issues and there were some suggestions about cleaning the earthing point
Can someone please point out where this is? Pictures in those threads are no longer available.  : :(

Sunroof
hi there, 

with the recent storms in my area I have noticed there was a smell in my car  didn't  think much of it at first bought an air freshener had no rubbish around, then noticed the car felt very humid and damp as the smell got worse a week or so on I decided to do  clean out  my car had no rubbish and when I went to vacuum I picked up the back seat floor matt and it was soaked so much to the point it was dripping water I lifted it to find there were some mould spots from out damp it was . I was baffled as to how this could've  happened no one sits in the back . anyway I thought maybe one of my passengers spilt a bottle of water by mistake and didn't mention it. I dried it out and thought nothing of it a month or so later h...

Ok, so I hit 60,000 kilometres in my SR yesterday 3 days shy of her 2nd birthday. I thought it might be a good opportunity to do a short summary of that 2 years.

Firstly bit of background...

Our 1st i30 was a Moonlight blue Manual 2008 FD Manual SLX which we had for roughly 2 years and did similar mileage I think. At the time it was without doubt the best car I'd owned in my first 30 odd years of driving. Just loved the torque and barely had an issue with it. Don't think I made a warranty claim but the tailgate did occasionally refuse to unlock, so I would have had to eventually if I hadn't traded her in on a Camry Hybrid.

Around the same time, feeling guilty we didn't have an i30, I traded the wife's Niss...

Time flies ... I still love the bloody car.  It is such a joy to drive the car everyday.  The car does help with training self discipline because every time I sit in the car, the temptation of gunning it and zoom.  Yet "nearly" always lift off the pedal before over the speed limit.

I need to take it out for a long drive more often.  Took it for 300km drive to Blue Mountain and back and the car record fuel consumption around 6.6l/100km which I am really happy about.  Sydney driving is around 9.2l/km. 

Car servicing is way cheaper than the Subaru Outback, so pretty happy on that regard as well.  I do not care about branding, I just need a reliable and fun car to drive and the I30 SR Premium ticked all the boxes for me s...

Now I know we've had one or two with a faulty DCT, but after 2 years with my SR and recently buying Trish a Kona with the same transmission I reckon they are great.

About half the video reviews I've seen criticise the behaviour of the DCT at low speeds in traffic although overall they still like them. But apart from the fact that the SR is a little slow in first gear to get going I've had very little reason to fault it during the first 60,000 kilometres. We haven't had any jerkiness or clunking.

Before anyone says I live in Tasmania with very little stop start traffic, I have driven through Adelaide Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane in my SR without any problems.

If anything Trish's Kona DCT seems ev...

Possessed
My i30's suffering from an occasional knocking noise from (I think) one of the front wheels or driveshafts.  It's a repeated knock once per wheel revolution, only noticeable at low speeds and regardless of what gear the car's in.

The mileage is about 38,000.

It's as if some debris, like a twig for instance, has got into the vent gap in the front disc and is hitting the caliper with each revolution.  It lasts less than a minute and then goes away completely.  We called the AA once, but their mechanic could find nothing wrong as the noise had disappeared.

I've taken the wheels off and spun the discs.  There's plenty of material on the pads and the front discs measure 22.3mm (right) and 22.5mm (left).

Vibration
Hi all,

I am not 100% if I am in the right area however I just want to raise a minor concern:

when I drive my '18 SR Premium, on a high way driving at 110km/hr, my steering wheel vibrates, this only happens when I drive over 100 -- I have new wheels on my car since February. Is this normal or should it not be like that?

Does it happen it anyone else?
