I've Done It Again
« September 06, 2019, 06:30:43 »
I sold my diesel manual FD i30 at 136,000 kms.
I sold my diesel manual GD at 237,000 kms.
I have just bought a base model PD Go i30 petrol manual so let's see if it makes 338,000 kms, to continue the trend.   :D
The first one was white.
The second one was white.
So this time I thought I'd go something different and get a coloured one.
But there were no coloured manuals in Australia.
So I bought a white one.  :neutral:
I picked it up yesterday. So far all good except within 10 kms the TPMS warning light came on and despite adjusting the tyre pressures, remains on.
So at least they will have something to do at its 1500 km "check."

Well at least 3 whites (play on word) can't be wrong

@Doggie 1

Cool! Well that's a surprise. I thought you probably had enough cars already, but glad to see you back in an i30 all the same.

The PD looks nice in white (I really should have got a white SR)

Just need to look out for some alloys..  :victory:

Three cars sold recently for this one @Dazzler:)
I wasn't keen on the alloys on the PD Active, just personal preference. I actually think the wheel covers on the Go are a nicer design, but that said I've no doubt some alloys will find their way on to the car at some point.

500+ kms done in six days, mixed use.
Around town locally plus freeway trip to Perth.
Probably a bit too early to tell but it looks like I'll get 700+ kms out of a tank which isn't too bad, given the price difference between diesel fuel and ULP (149.9 v 121.9c/l).
It has developed a slight rattle in the driver's door trim which I will report, along with the aforementioned TPMS light.
Otherwise, I'm really enjoying driving it and I love the Apple CarPlay for Google mapping.  :)
Plus, finally, I have a car that picks up AM radio in Pinjarra.   :happydance: :happydance:
