I turned 43000 miles (~69k kms) the other day.

No real problems to report. New set of tyres 10k miles ago to replace the garbage OEM Hankooks.

One under warranty fix for a fuel evap emissions canister replacement that threw a CEL around 25k miles.

Other that that just fuel and oil changes. I put in a container of fuel system cleaner at the last fill up since we have direct injection engines.

Thanks for the update and the Photos. The GD hasn't dated at all. Still a good looking car.

Great to hear you are having a good run.  :goodjob:

1yr on the MX-5 and 12.5k miles (not driving an extra 800km a weekend anymore in addition to work commuting helps) two giant door dings from jerks at work and a car wash attendant broke off the terrestrial radio aerial.

I still miss my 2014 i30/GT. I miss the hatchback utility and the looks.

Sadly the 2018+ packaging in the US makes it so you can’t get it fully loaded with a manual (sunroof, etc) even on the turbocharged Sport version.
