My i30 has a sticker on the car frame.

when I open the drivers door it is between the door hinges.

Does your car have one there or do you have stickers giving tyre pressure and paint code which includes other info.

Log book reads power (KW)
The rest of that row is blank.
I'll try to get a picture of that section

Might seem stupid question. I have 2017 ix20. (New to me) How can I tell if it's 1.6CRDI 85KW or 94KW Reg doc just says 1.6 premium blue drive
Trying to find parts (filters for service) and don't know which to select.
Entering Reg number on parts sites doesn't help.

Long time BTCC follower here.. nice to see this year Tom Ingram take a win in race 1 with his i30N..he also took second spot in the second race.. most significant thing here is that this year Hyundai are using their own engine in the car and so far its paying off..   8)

Sorry for the late reply Shambles.. I have flu.. that guy is so knowledgeable and gave a full insight of the problems surrounding the Theta engine..

I also found info regarding the ticking on cold start with the gamma engines.. [louder in winter ] it was a strip down on the 1.6 Gdi engine and was due to low oil pressure when hot.. strip down showed that the oil pressure relief valve was stuck partly open and there was swarf present.. hence the low oil pressure.. so I thought to my self if the relief valve is stuck this must also account for low oil pressure at cold start and the oil pump not delivering adequate oil to the top end and camshafts in general [ pressure leak ].. I have seen many posts over the years about this top end ticking on the gamma engines and I think this could well be the problem here.. good thing though is when the strip down was done the engine was good in other respects..

Forget to add a link on this 16 gamma engine oil pressure problem..
