  1. i40 headlight change to Xenons

    I have been through the same process. HID that won't fit and many ultra H7 haligon bulbs that are a slight improvement but don't last. Back to driving with poor highlights but now we are back on GMT the issue is apparent again so would be interested in a HID solution if Abzy has managed to find one
  2. Pollen filter

    Yeah very restrictive size wise as its behind the glove box but probably the easiest I've ever fitted to any of my previous cars.
  3. Pollen filter

    Mann filters are renowned for their quality and performance but given the size of the cabin filter on the i40 (thinnest I have ever fitted in over 30 years) and the cabin not being an airtight chamber. You are probably reading a little deep and getting caught up in corp marketing blurb. But yes Mann are quality filters just don't get obsessed with manufacturers claims.
  4. Pollen filter

    Standard. I fitted a WIX
  5. Not good

    Omg Gareth can't believe they hide behind the warranty!!! The attraction of the warranty to the consumer is the confidence in the build quality of the product and NOT oh well it's cheap shit........... but we've replaced it with more cheap shit at no cost to you whilst your in warranty.
  6. BATTERY 2X 150A fuses

    Keep us posted when you fit the fuses. Did you replace the alternator along with the fuses?
  7. Not good

    That don't sound good Gareth. Think everyone apart from Hyundai the cause of that one. Just a pity Hyundai have buried its corporate head in the sand and haven't done any proactive recalls to prevent failure or even acknowledge that coolent/fuel getting into engine oil.
  8. I Installed a HID KIT On My I40

    Pics and links would help us see what you have done?
  9. Unfamiliar beeping sounds

    Yeah I've had that, yet another parking sensor fault
  10. Wesley

    Try a few other Hyundai dealers in your area first. My Hyundai dealership charges £199 but I'm in North West
  11. Parking sensors

    Yep, I go through at least one parking sensor every service as I can't afford to keep taking the vehicle off the road every time the toyRus parking sensors fail
  12. I would be interested on the engine numbers as it sounds very much to me like Hyundai are reworking returned blocks. I makes sense to rework and not scrap the blocks but if you have already suffered 2 failures then commercial sense must be over ruled by product reputation and a brand new non reconditionef engine be fitted.
  13. New Clutch at 36000miles?????

    Is that a courtesy car or a hire car ? I would suggest Gary that you find another Hyundai dealer for future work as those £15 are really going to start to add up. Ive used 2 different Hyundai dealerships for work on my i40 and neither have charged anything for a courtesy car.
  14. New Clutch at 36000miles?????

    Hi Gary, sounds like the rear pads/discs have worn down in such a short time due to the hand brake sticking on thus the EPB not releasing fully which I would argue if "inherent" mechanical failure which is covered under warranty. Inherent being the most important word in the claim. As for the clutch, a sticking EPB would also cause premature wear to this item as well as all the other well documented issues with the i40 clutch which is why they have quoted you such a ridiculous low price for a clutch replacement. You could try another Hyundai dealer or raise the issue with Hyundai UK. The rear brakes are not so difficult to do both I & westkent do our own rear brakes just as easy as the front with the maintenance tool which paid for itself on the first change. £200 for the tool £40 rear pads. I also got some new pair brembro discs over Xmas in the mister auto Black Friday for £65 which I will fit with my next set of pads. Good to see Indalo on the forum still. Andy.
  15. Possible newbie

    Got to agree with you Gaz
