yo, sorry if wrong thread. noticed a drip when pulling into the garage, noticed the black sooty spot on the left exhaust pipe. Couldn't feel any holes/damage or anything, but definitely watery/condensation drip from there, after parking. Gonna go clean it up tomorrow for a better look, anyone had similar? MY19

We've run into this before. Check where the darkened spot is on the tailpipe you've pictured. There is a very small pin hole which is suppose to be there to relieve exhaust condensation.

Hi all. I'm currently in the market to buy an i30N. I'm based in South-Africa, so I'm not quite sure exactly which variant of the i30N I'm getting (All I know is it is a 2020 model and has no AEB, manual) When I test drove the car, it made no pops and bangs, it did rumble on throttle release. I'm wondering if it is just because the car has only 50kms on the clock (I read that the exhaust gets louder with more kms on the clock) Can anyone who had a similar issue confirm whether this is the case?

What mode were you in? What were you doing to try and initiate pops and bangs? When you get your own car, run it in.

I was in N mode and N-custom, I set the exhaust to its most aggressive setting, the engine response as well, with only the suspension in normal. I tried to initiate it by flooring it in 1st (no wheelspin, I did it gradually enough) and the rapidly releasing the throttle, but it only gurgles. Don't know if they changed the exhaust or something in that model or if it just not run in like you say. (The dealer is pretty useless in answering my questions about the car, they don't know much about it it seems...)

No need to floor it, it's the slowing down that counts. 2nd gear up to 30 mph and back off does it for me. But there is thought to be a potential difference between Cat equipped cars and those later ones with GPFs.

Ok, I'm really very unsure of it all, it still sounds very awesome, but I would like to be able to make some machine gun fire every now and then XD. There is very little information on what changes happen between year models and I only seem to find 2018 models in videos and such

Mine gurgles if I go up to 4000 rpm and release the throttle. It bangs if I go between 5000 and 6000 and release the throttle.

100% every time for bangs for me is to 3rd gear up to 115km/h and lift foot off throttle. I can then tap the throttle lightly another 2-3 times to create even more bangs.

I have a 2019 GPF model with Resonated GPF Delete and Flex pipe. It would still gurgle and pop at those points before I did the mods, it's just louder now, and can happen outside of these windows as well.
