Sat Nav
Just had a 40,000 mile service and requested that all software be checked to be current.

On collection they advised that the audio system had been updated (no details available) along with the SatNav and maps.

I didn't expect to get the maps free but they said they wouldn't be charging for the update.

After handing over 331 (2 less than quoted) I would bloody well hope so :)

Here's my system after the update:

Wont Start
Hi Everyone,
I come seeking assistance again. My 2008 CRDi SLX Auto had been getting hard to start recently.  It does this when its due for a service so I was not particularly concerned. Took it in to the local dealer for the 120K service and found after the service it was just as hard or even harder to start.

Starting involves cranking the engine, pumping the throttle madly and then holding it flat to the floor. After about 10 to 15 second of cranking it will cough and then fire. It runs quite rough for a few second and will not idle until its run for 10 to 15 seconds. After that it idles fine while I let it heat up. Restarting the car is not a problem when its hot or even up to 3 or 4 hours after using it. If I drive to wo...

Bike Rack
Hi All,

First post here, wanting to find out if anyone has had success with the clip on style bike carriers that fit on the rear hatch?

The only factor I can see preventing the use of this style of rack is the rear spoiler.

Not interested in the expense of roof racks or fitting a towbar as in the next 12 months the i30 won't be the primary mover of bikes.

Have had bit of a read of a few topics here but wasn't able to find what I was after.

Cheers Bozzy

Suspension Springs
I have an i30 (FD Trophy 2012 Hatch) Petrol 2.0L.

Today I was checking the tyre pressure and I have noticed the gap above the rear drivers side tyre, is about 2cm from the top of the tyre to the car body.

Yet on the other side, it is closed to 7cm.

Surely this should be symettrical...and I have never noticed this's as though the suspension has broken???

See photos comparing passenger and drivers side. Any ideas what the problem could be...? Would this be a warranty job?

I checked and there has been no mistake with the tyre size, both tyre size is the same..

Hi all
Battery light came on today now waiting for a jump start the wife told me just before all the parts shops closed. Let's hope it's an easy fix with a new alternator.

i30 in the news
The German magazine AutoBild often perform the 100,000 km test of various cars. Here's the verdict of the i30:

"With a score of "one" is the Koreans the best long-term test car we have investigated so far. Strong, is not it?"

Yeah, I know. It's in German  :P

In short, the only fault during the 100,000 km was a blown bulb at the number plate.

They did of course mention the not-so-good feeling in the steering and the road noise....
