  1. 18" Premium alternative tyre size

    It's not that different to a dealer aftermarket warranty which also is a smoke screen to prevent you from using the weapon of mass dealer destruction The Consumer Rights Act of 2015 .

    Why is Hyundai battery warranty only 2 years whereas aftermarket are sold with 3 - 5 or even Lifetime if you go Yuasa Black . Who is the Hyundai battery oem ?
  3. 18" Premium alternative tyre size

    Halfrauds are a liability their battery info is wrong , even since 10 years ago when a friend got one for a 2.0 Hyundai coupe , their info said the previous model was one and the same . This year a Nissan 005 , when it was a 007R . A just a few days ago on a Ford a 100 when it was a 110 , fortunately I measured and it was definitely the bigger battery but they still maintained it was a 100 . Retards .

    Not very beefy these Korean mobile phone batteries considering they're a 1.7 derv . A family member had a battery replaced on a 1.8 derv today and it was the same as my 1.9 , a 110 , 800CCA , 85Ah .

    For the 1.9 VW I paid £72 2 years ago at a motor factors for a Yuasa 5 year 85Ah , 800 CCA beast . Whilst not failed the original 12 year old oem Varta battery made the starter turn slower . You won't get 10 years service now .

    Can confirm 245 40 on the rear has been working well , fronts also purchased and will be fitted sometime next year . Provides a bit more meat at the bottom of the tyre to protect from the magnetic effect of kerbs .

    What's their IQ ?

    Is that really a service interval ? If so what oil would be needed for that ?
  10. Terry

    Cool , report back . Will oil drained be from the max dip stick level ?

    Damn the handbook is saying 5.3L , 4L extraction isn't looking too good Westkent .

    This blokes an overfiller 5.5L man , lol . https://youtu.be/7ZO-QDQR_JQ Just as a first time for my own personal experience I'll use the sump plug method courtousy of the ingenious removable service panel , taking note what I find the quantity is that goes back in . 5.5L in a sub 2.0L engine isn't impossible as a Ford 1.8 tdci engine I service takes 5.4L , for some strange reason the oil extractor tube didn't go down properly a few months ago despite being successful two previous times before so I had to resort to the sump plug , no biggie as the undertray is a breeze and I have to be under there anyway to remove the spin on oil filter . I'd be annoyed if this were the case with my VW as the undertray is a broken cable tied nightmare that also partially fits around the wheel arch , everything is done from the top , oil filter insert , no jacking , no undertray removal , no sump plug . 100% all the oil comes out using the extractor on the VW as around 500ml can additionally be sucked out of the oil cooler as the tube drops down into it from the oil filter housing . The conclusion being measured that the oil takes ages to darken again , if the oil cooler oil were not removed and or any other remaining the fresh oil would blacken straight away .
  13. I40 coolant loss

    Hope it's something simple like a leak in the coolant system and not the dreaded porous cylinder liners issue requiring a new engine . Is the car in warranty ?
