Test Drive
Okay, got to testdrive the new i30 today.

Like I wrote yesterday I would like to testdrive the 1,4 T-GDi. Disappointed. Not with the car though, as it turns out that engine option won't be introduced in DK before May. Why the hell do they advertice it if it isn't available..  :disapp:

Well, I got to drive the 1,0 T-GDi Premium. Overall a nice car, the steering wasn't as bad as expected actually. Very comfy seats and the interior looks very nice.

The engine have enough power to keep up with the traffic and is not heard much inside. It does have the turbo lag Tohis mentioned. It's quite annoying even when revved up to 3000 before next gear, it shouldn't have that lag like the turbo pressure totally disappear...

Test Drive
My local dealer had the introduction day of all-new PD i30 today. They had one (1.4 T-GDI 6MT Style) in the showroom, and another one (1.0 T-GDI 6MT Comfort with Navigation pack) for test driving. After waiting a bit for the previous test driver to return, I then got the key in my hand and was off for a half-hour drive.

The three-mug 1.0-liter chugged along with its distinctive purring sound, having enough power for casual driving, but felt completely dead under 1500 rpm. Although I didn't stall it, a fast biting clutch didn't make starting off too easy. Also when shifting to second gear at 20 km/h, it did that *umph.. wroom* hesitation typical in small turbo engines because of turbo lag after losing the pressure during shifting....

Suspension Springs
When I turn to the left I get a knocking noise from the near side suspension front and back I went to my local Hyundai dealer and they wanted 80+ just to look at it any idea. High millage 104000.

I have just booked a 15 point safety check at Halfords which includes suspension so hopefully they will find the problem cost FREE.Will update when its done.

Turns out it was the nearside spring, sorted.

Problems & Issues
2009 1.6 crdi
After changing the park light I reconnected the battery the wrong way accidentally. The car let me know by beeping and flashing its lights. I immediately corrected that fault. Upon completion I conducted a light test and found the park light not to be operational. But the hi low beam works. Tail light don't work but brakes and reverse do. And the pwr windows don't work.  :head_butt: the battery light, abs stay on when engine is started 
The only fuse that I've found to be broken is my 150amp fuseable link for the alternator.

Somebody please tell me it's the only fault

i30 in the news
The Director of Marketing for Hyundai Australia (Oliver Mann) was kind enough to contact the Admin of the Club recently to invite us to be involved in the launch of the new PD (series 3) i30 in Australia - (Sydney)

Obviously I would have loved to be one of those involved but unfortunately I have other commitments during the 1st week of April when the event is scheduled to happen.  :Pout:

So, after a bit of a ring around I have organised for Trevor (Surferdude) from the Sunshine Coast and Neville (i30Premy) from Sydney to attend.

They will join Dealer Representatives and I assume Journalists in viewing the presentation and being amongst some of the 1st to drive it! Hyundai is going to support their involvemen...

Bulbs
Hey. I had an issue a while ago where both dipped beam bulbs blew and as I'm a stupid numpty, I removed the main beam bulb on the passenger side by accident. I quickly realised my mistake and popped it back in. Unfortunately, since then it hasn't worked. I thought I had blown the bulb by handling it or something, and fancied a change overall so I ordered some Osram Cool Blue Intense replacements for the main beam, dipped and sidelights and got around to fitting them today.

Unfortunately, the main beam bulb on the passenger side still doesn't work. I can't find my multimeter and it is getting dark now, so I have had to call it a day in trying to fix the issue. However, some of my problem solving has narrowed the issue down to the ...

Fuel Injection
Hi all I've just collected my 2010 i30 comfort 1.4 petrol this morning from a used car garage. All was well until later in the day I noticed the engine warning light was staying on, I drove over to the dealership and they put it on the diagnostics and reported back to me that it needed a new fuel injector pump. They're gonna sort it out but I'm not sure if it will solve the following issue I've noticed. The revs don't seem to drop below 1000rpm even with my foot off the gas and when I hold the car on the bite I have to hold the revs at around 2000rpm to stop the car from stalling. Is this normal behaviour for this car or is the fault the garage picked up? Im a little worried I've bought a dud but as this is my first car I really am not sure...
