  1. Claim # ? Noticed this morning the roof rails are lifting . These cars are a joke
  2. Common as... Warranty .
  3. The mind boggles , the iQ40 is the cartoon Mystery Machine , more complex and more high maintenance than the Tardis...
  4. "Would I buy this car again? Never in a million years." This man has an IQ greater than 40 !
  5. How much ?
  6. Your dpf isn't going to agree with that box of frogs.
  7. I prefer the old individual Hyundai style now it's morphed into a BMW 1 series with a Audi A3 front.
  8. That's stealer's for you , if in doubt , blame India , lol .
  9. If folks could use this Hyundai VIN decoder to ascertain the origin of their original engine with coolant loss due to porous cylinder liners . http://www.vindecoderz.com/EN/Hyundai Rumour was India or alike , but the decoder says differently ! Enter below relevant info so a greater understanding can be achieved . Gazwould , 45K 18.1.12 built , 62 plate Engine factory 084 Ulsan , Korea .
  10. Well I've just done the decoder ( coolant loss with no overheating and short engine replacement ) and the 18.1.12 built car ( 62 plate ) also has the engine factory as 084 Ulsan ( Korea ). So is this dispelling the myth of an Indian factory being responsible ?
  11. Welcome Gazzar !
  12. Privacy glass and metallic red , it looks well Mark . The lifting roof rails is a common fault .
  13. Pass . The dealer ( town ) did say he'd done 4 before .
  14. Right up to the 2015 facelift model I guess . If it happens outside of warranty it's a 7K+ disaster. Get one that's had the engine replaced is the best bet .
  15. Worst case scenario is the infamous coolant loss . That results in a completely new or short engine...
  16. Got to love stealer comedy prices . Sure it's not the amp fuse ? Probably a JBL amp , take it out and see if there are any specs on it and if not find them out and match something up .
  17. Have they an oil cooler ?
  18. Soon to upgrade the abysmal colour temperature difference . Standard bulb is probably around 3000K - 3200K , going to put in some E marked Ultra 5000K and will report back. Doubt many have gone HID or LED kits with ballasts , what have you tried ?
  19. Well it's been back for two weeks now (62 plate on 45K) since a short engine change because of disapearing coolant due to porous cylinder liners . Driving since the 60's and never needed to replace an engine ! He's only had the car 5 months and this is the second claim as some rear bushes let go and caused a drop link to drop down and clank around this happened at week 3 both sides . How very spent bushes aren't spotted in an mot , service , AA inspection and PDI before handover is beyond my comprehension . I wonder what it's going to cost him after next September when the warranty runs out as the more common faults haven't happened like the reversing camera , lifting roof rails , parking sensors , etc . We thought initially that Hyundai were quality as they showed faith in their product with the 5 year warranty , but their reliability and quality is just average at best and the 5 year warranty is just a USP . Long gone are the days when cars just cost consumables and service parts , planned obsolescence is the norm now . And a second hand engine from the scrap yard isn't £200 anymore . Now prices are truly scary and will send many a car to an early grave . Take Audi's 0.2 second gear change S- tronic automatic gearbox , these are sensitive and fragile with crucial 38k oil and filter changes . If a complete new unit is required and fitted even at a cheap labour rate it's 10 grand. Out of warranty an i40 isn't a good prospect , you'd have to have an iQ of 40 to buy one , lol .
  20. If out of warranty I'm sure there's better weather proof ebay offerings .
  21. Narrowing the choice , modern stuff tends to be around the 6000K mark . The trouble is there's different interpretations of what colour temperature with different William Kelvin charts and slightly different colours are represented . I bought some P21W Cree led reversing lights recently that were ment to be 6500K and they were clearly the whiter/yellow not the white/blue side . I preferred the more natural un blue tinged white so happy days .
  22. 881 http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-units-50W-H27-CREE-881-Bright-White-LED-Fog-DRL-Headlight-Lights-Bulb-lamp-/252521630361 Now with the H7 is too much choice . Cheapest is Ultra Ultra 5000K xenon halogen my dad is soon going to fit . At +130% is Ring Xenon , probably 3700K . Philips White Vision +60% 4300K , or 4300K , 5000K , 6000K... etc CREE LED or HID !
  23. What bulb type is it ?
  24. They'll be absolutely fine .
  25. Are people using in their 1.7 crdi ?
