Hi All,

After a few years of going through sub-$1500 shitboxes I decided to hop off that train and got myself something that I'll own for at least 5 years.

Now a proud owner of an i30 MY2011 SX 1.6 Diesel with the 6 speed manual gearbox. Very happy with how this car performs and it's extremely comfortable (first time owning a car that's less than 15 years old lol)

Picked it up in white and have some plans:

  • Going for the stormtrooper kind of look
  • Window Tint: 35 front sides, 20 rear sides, 10 on valance panels, 35 for rear
  • Dashcam front and rear
  • Replace interior lamps with a warmer colour
  • Dashmat, carseats, wheel cover, weather shields
  • Roofracks maybe
  • Bluetooth OBD2 module and possibly a RaspberryPi, who knows yet!
  • Plastidip exterior chromed plastic to either white or black, maybe paint door handles

Will post some pics later this afternoon  :mrgreen:

See you around!

Thanks for the welcomes  :drinks:

Here are pics of my new car. (click for larger)





A few gremlins that a mechanic mate of mine picked up today -- Looks like there's a boost leak and the clutch slave cylinder looked "weird". So hopefully getting those looked at this weekend and I'll learn a thing to two. The rear driver lock actuator also makes a really strange noise sometimes when locking, which I've been told means it's on it's way out. Looks like the front passenger door lock is also broken and needs replacing.
