i30 in the news
"A Golf GTI weighs less but costs more and canít touch the Hyundaiís power, while the Focus ST is comparable on most metrics but struggles to lay its power down. Everything else thatís in the same performance ballpark, like the 308 GTi, Civic Type R and Mini John Cooper Works, are priced well above the i30 N. To call it a performance bargain is a heinous understatement.

Oh, and did we mention that the i30 N carries the same five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty as every other Hyundai Ė and that the company will still honour it even if you take it to the occasional track day? For a performance car, thatís an incredible declaration of confidence."

Glow Plug
Hello al...

  I have a 2011 face lift i30 1.6crdi 116.. 47k miles, bought it 10 days ago and only done 40miles in it.. bought it from a dealer ( not Hyundai ) and the first morning it wouldn't start, the car went back and they put glow plugs in it and told me to collect it ( I had to find my own way so I walked the 5 miles ) it drove home quiet and smooth but I went to start it when it had cooled down and the heat light only came on for a second and the car ran like a tractor.... The outside temp was +3 deg.. Is there anything else that could cause the heat lamp to come on for too short a time ? What determines the glow time of the plugs ? Coolant temp or air temp ?

 How long should the heat lamp stay on for ? Might it...

 Hi. My petrol 2016 i30 calculation of how many kilometres I should get on a full tank is constantly incorrect. When I fill up (I am driving normally in and around town mostly), the trip computer says I have a range of approximately 460 km. I never usually go for more than around 300 km per tank of unleaded fuel before needing to refill. This is a big anomaly. Is this normal? :victory:

If I wanted to intiate a DPF burn what are the conditions I need to give the engine?

How does the engine sense it needs a DPF burn? backpressure? downstream temperature/ pressure?

I've asked a service manager his technical reply was "it' ll  do it when it wants to"

How can I see a burn has taken place without watching my instantaneous fuel consumption or exhaust constantly while i'm hurtling down the road?

I've read service depts can do it via the ECU  in some cars.

Hyundai customer service were a huge disappointment

No wonder  people are scared to buy diesels if the manufacturer cant give straightforward answers and problems with the DPF can be very expensive.

To get started, car audio may look confusing with all the numbers flying around to the uninitiated, but its really quite basic once you get your head into it. I admit I am an engineer so this kind of stuff just clicks with me but if you need help on your own car I'm just a PM away!

So the I30 has an okay stock audio system, but its not going to win any awards so I quickly got to work. In previous cars it was simply replace the headunit, which gives you RCA low level outputs to fronts, rears and a subwoofer, which made installs a breeze! Since the I30 has such a beautiful (limiting in audio adjustability still) headunit, there are a few things to consider.

It is possible to simply put speaker level inputs into amplifier...
