    Its not necessary to go back to Komoco for servicing as long as u are comfortable with a workshop outside. U might like to check with the previous owner if there is any free servicings left (if there is a service package included). If u do not know a workshop u are familiar with for servicing, u can bring it to Harmony Motors at AMK Point. They are familiar with Hyundais, including the i30.

    Use the dipstick and check your engine oil level. Are u losing engine oil. If u are, contact KMC svc centre to make an appt asap. If not, it may just be a careless mechanic that splashed engine oil all over in the process of performing an oil change.

    Its certainly possible but it will be more expensive than just merely swapping to LED bulbs. U will need to purchase a pair of LED headlamps, INCLUSIVE of a pair of DRLs (dual led model with integrated turn signal). In addition, as the existing harness for the halogen model isnt compatible with the LED headlamps, u will need to do some retrofitting to make it work. Not as simple. Horn is simple... just pick something u like from Bosch, Hella, etc to replace the existing teeny horn.

    Should be doable since there is already an aftermarket organ pedal for the i30 just that it's designed for the Korean lhd model. I think it should fit our RHD cars.

    No big difference in quality. For a car like the i30 with a turbocharged gdi engine, u need an engine oil with low noack and good lubrication at high temp. Go watch the entire series..

    It's not the viscosity, it's the brand. Indeed. Its not the engine, its the transmission. In normal mode, to reduce wear on the clutch the engagement is slow. Just switch to sports mode and the difference is noticeable. You don't drive the i30 like your typical Korean and jap B&B models. Give the accelerator a decisive and firm prod to make quick progress.. Not feathering the throttle.

    Free svcing is a double edged sword. It certainly gives u some peace of mind but u r tied to Shell Helix engine oil that KMC uses. In addition, if u intend to make enhancements in the future, it may be better to have your car serviced elsewhere.

    Second that. The Mazda 1.5 engine is underpowered and very unrefined. Engine is vocal when extended (typical of many b&b 4 cylinder powered cars) but its also unrefined and rough. I have also just test driven the latest 2019 Mazda 3 Elegance Sedan. It has impressive interior trim and safety features. NVH has improved significantly, resulting in a more acceptable engine noise in the cabin when extended. However, the car is still very underpowered despite of their claims of having a mild hybrid system to assist. It merely gives the driver a sense of being responsive when u step on the accelerator from stand still. It only offers just that initial split second response, thereafter there is hardly much asssistance from 1,500rpm onwards. Revving the car till redline is pretty pointless. In this aspect, Hyundai's 1.6 engine gives much better low to mid end torque.
