    If you can find any of my old posts there was a guy on here who kept a log of the GT4 cars, who owned them and the plaque # and he seemed to think that No3 was either the press car or used for publicity pictures I can't remember which, considering its age its holding its money well, I would love to hear it with that exhaust system on it, it sounded nice with the std system!

  2. That is bad luck, but at least the neighbour is doing the right thing.

     

    Just one observation - have you checked the offside that looks very close the wall/fence, given the way your car was shunted?

  3. I recall electric seats being fitted to base models in years gone by.  It seems the wiring is all there so just plug and play, although for heated seats to work you would need the switches as well.

     

    Best if you can post up some pics of your (inside and out) to help us verify the model for you.


  4. Check out the i30N,  get a good 1 year old one with your budget.

     

    5 years warranty that includes track use (if you want to do that).

     

    Only downside I have found is that it tempts you to exercise your right foot :D and with a smallish tank (50ltr), fill-ups come round pretty quick.

    Don't remember Alex probably does?

    No - way, way before Ken bought his. Pics from the Jockland hoon in 2008. The GTR was driven a friend of Stewy who organized that event - don't recall his name but iirc he was only about 18.......

     

    Apart from the last pic, they were taken at the starting point in Fort Augustus - good memories and nice pic of my black Zed at the time, next to Stewy's car.:teeth:

    Every week?! I'm not sure whether to be impressed by your dediction or concerned about the amount of spare time you must have! ;):lol:

    As an ex-team member I know that managing a free forum throws various challenges from time wasters and worse.....that takes up a fair bit of time, apart from enjoying what the rest of us members want to read, follow and benefit from.

     

    And yes it is dedication/passion, that keeps team members going, giving up what free time they have and remembering they do it all for free.  

     

    No doubt your interest Silverthorn in what a team member gets up to has been noted.....as a future recruit ;):lol:

  7. The i30n is a bundle of fun - bought for £25k (pre-registered) last December, that comes with all the toys as standard and 5 year warranty that also allows for track use, providing Hyundai do the servicing which are are not expensive. It all works very well.

    Customizing the drive mode gives you a real hardcore feel and the cornering grip with E limited slip diff is something else.  Chose it after reading road testers reports and compared to the VW offerings etc so much more for your money. The fact it is manual with a handbrake and spare (spacesaver) wheel ticked more boxes for me.  The only downside I have found is that it likes it's octane and with a relatively small 50 litre tank means fill-ups come round quickly, but then I did not buy it to tootle around in..... :blush:

     

    Be interesting to see how the i20n is rated, no doubt the smaller size with a 1.6 turbo as opposed to the 2 litre turbo in the i30n will make it another fun machine.

  8. From your description a failed wheel bearing does seem the most obvious problem, given you checked there are no stones between the disc and shield ?

     

    Given what you have done, in the process did you check out if the noise was there with the car jacked up and turning the wheel + checking for play?  Might sound daft, but did you also (thoroughly) check the tyre(s) to see if there was any sign of potential carcass failure or something embedded  in the tread?

     

    Otherwise, if you have a breakdown cover give them a call is about the best option I can suggest. :shrug: (Away from home of course;))
