  1. Start stop (ISG) and AGM brattery

    What battery code type is it , ie , 096 , 110 etc .
  2. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/hyundai/i30-n/first-drives/hyundai-i30n-2018-review https://www.topgear.com/car-reviews/hyundai/i30/20t-gdi-n-5dr/first-drive
  3. Child seats

    Get a vasectomy .
  4. Clutch on the way out?

    Strangely the size of clutch is dependent on the horsepower model , 136 gets a 240mm whilst 115 receives 236mm , bonkers really .
  5. i40 headlight change to Xenons

    I think most of it is good alignment on the max height allowed to see up the road , it doesn't matter how bright the bulbs are if they're pointing down you aren't going to see Jack... Abzy did fit HID but didn't follow up with any product links or pics . H7 LED are probably the way forward but there are so many out there I wouldn't know where to begin . Both the above HID and LED are technically illegal to fit in place of halogen but often pass MOT anyway if not too blue . Consider an 'E' marked performance halogen with a high pressure Xenon gas fill such as Ring Xenon 130%. They will always be yellow @ 3700K , father is using some E13 marked 5000K , probably the whitest E marked H7's . I wish people would use a lower suitable viscosity oil to cure these poor cold gear changes .
  6. Am I the only person who has one?

    Reborn as the Genesis G70 ! http://jalopnik.com/2018-genesis-g70-heres-how-south-korea-fights-the-germ-1813389001 https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.topgear.com/car-news/first-look/genesis-g70-koreas-3-series-fighter%3famp
  7. I30 Rain sensor

    Not an insurance claim ?
  8. Passenger door handle come off!

    They broke it , they fix it ?
  9. Rev counter bouncin when idleing

    I'd say it's a warranty issue alright . Get it logged with the dealer as soon as possible (although they might be in denial so close to warranty end ) and take a video of the issue .
  10. 2018 another i40 facelift

    http://www.caradvice.com.au/574746/2018-hyundai-i40-tourer-spied/#disqus_thread Not sure if it's going to be for the better as ex Audi German designer Peter Schreyer ruined the i30 by turning it into an Audi / BMW Eurobox . At least it's a facelift rather than a full next model replacement . Much prefer the original i40 and old i30 bold Hyundai 'fluidic sculpture' .
  11. Start stop (ISG) and AGM brattery

    Wow 4 batteries , Hyundai OE rubbish ?
  12. Front brake discs

    I believe Premium have larger discs than Style etc .
  13. Suspension, wheels,

    I would remap Stage 1 egr and dpf out and get it 150+ bhp . 16" is ridiculous on this size of car , ubber rare i40 18" Premium wheels with 245 40 18 ( not std ) size is good , or another appropriate 18" Hyundai / Kia wheel with the right offset range . 19" would look great but you're going to expensive tyre territory with an unforgiving slim profile and adding vehicle dynamics sapping additional unsprung weight . There is no better lowered springs than Eibach , usually lower by a nominal 30mm . They keep or even improve the OE ride quality whilst tightening up the handling .
  14. EGR valve

    The RGT i40 blanks have disappeared from eBay . I wonder if i30 1.6 crdi blanks would fit ?
  15. Lower front under brace

    None , just cost , both my Fast and Furious and VW daily have upper and lower bracing . The white is a bit "ginger kid in a playground " , nothing some black stone chip paint wouldn't sort .
  16. Lower front under brace

    Doubt anyone has done this yet ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ultra-Racing-2-Points-Front-Lower-Brace-Bar-for-Hyundai-i40-2011-2016-LA2-2755-/222614188912?fits=Car+Make%3AHyundai|Model%3Ai40&hash=item33d4d6f370:g:14oAAOSwiONYQcQr
  17. Lower front under brace

    A few more available . http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ultra-Racing-2-Points-Front-Strut-Brace-Bar-for-Hyundai-i40-2011-2016-TW2-2754-/322654574379?fits=Car+Make%3AHyundai|Model%3Ai40&hash=item4b1fb6172b:g:54sAAOSwa~BYQcOJ http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ultra-Racing-4-Points-Front-Lower-Brace-Bar-for-Hyundai-i40-2011-2016-LA4-2756-/322654578741?hash=item4b1fb62835
  18. 75mph best mpg sounds to high to me hense high mpg figures are quoted at 56mph .
  19. Characteristic , driver error or fault ?

    Whilst the remap has improved the low rpm it's not a cure as it's part my father's driving and part the hardware of the car. Some cars have amazing flexibility low down torque , the 1.7 i40 doesn't . It's a small engine larger turbo arrangement probably to chase favourable CO2 emissions . 1.7 136 and a VAG 2.0 140 , the larger turbo in the Hyundai allows for near 2.0 peak figures at the expense of slower spool of the larger turbo . A larger engine smaller turbo is the sweeter drive and this car should of had a 2.0 or twin turbo . Triple turbo's will be seen in the near future .
  20. 1.7 CRDI . Low speed , around 1000rpm , high gears kangarooing , requiring a lower gear to be selected .
  21. You have done well to get those figures.
  22. Rear brakes binding

    VAG has had loads with the rear EPB calipers stuck on , the motors were in plastic casings but due to a calipers position being subjected to heat , cold , water and muck the casings cracked and allowed the water and muck into the motors .
  23. Excessive front tyre wear

    Other way around mate as your earlier post , winter soft compound , summer is harder .
  24. Excessive front tyre wear

    Well be have this old treadwear number on the sidewall , I had some Dunlop Sport Maxx TT and the treadwear number was a low 280 and they wore quickly accordingly .
