Hi all,

First time putting some pictures on here, so sorry if I have got it wrong!  :whistler:

It's been a very rainy week in the UK, but got some good snaps of my little beasty!

Super looking i30. I love the dual pipes out the bacl makes it almost as naughty as the N.  I like the practical side being the GTDI engine but the sporty punch the turbo gives when you want to get going.  What spec do have out of because the one I ordered in Ireland was a totally different spec then what was on the brochure but in a good way.  Only thing is it needs a sporty exhaust and Im afraid it will upset the warranty.

Thanks Shambles!! Much better now  :lol: :lol:

Brianchalkyshaw thanks! It's a pretty good looking car!! Yeah I have thought about changing the exhaust so its louder and could get a few extra bhp out of it. Would make my insurance shoot through the roof though, already expensive enough as a young driver! On my list is to get the windows tinted and brake calipers painted red. Just gotta save some money £££ :lol:

Even on a small screen that night shot is  brilliant.
The red reflecting on the  bricks really sets it off.

Is yours the 1litre turbo petrol. Thats what I got the 118bhp from  a 3 cylinder 1 litre turbo petrol. 
I fancy tinting the rear out completly black like limo black and the front to whats just about legal

No it's the 1.6L, 183bhp, 0-62mph in 8 seconds.

That's exactly what I want to do!!!

Thanks! Yeah I saw a couple on Instagram that's had one so asked where they got it, just a little Ebay job nothing special!

Do it! I'm really pleased with how these turned out in the rain!
