2012 Hyundai i30 Elite (1.6 Auto)
90k's. fully serviced and only recently out of warranty

I noticed my check engine light very occasionally came on, typically after driving the car a bit harder.  I bought a ODB2 reader and I can see this error.

Left it for about an hour and tried again, after a couple of tries managed to start, quickly engaged gear and drove into driveway. Engine management light came on and stayed on while car was operating.

I've read everything I could I think on this issue on these forums and ordered a ...
