Yes that is quite bad and would p*ss me off as well, as a matter of interest why are you removing the locking wheel nuts? surely by doing that they are easier to steal.
I'm removing them because it's a hassle every time I change tyres. The tyre shop always either lose the "key" or place it somewhere I can't find it later. Plus they look ugly. I'm not concerned about theft because I park in a secured underground car park. Also there are so few N cars (about 5) where I live that it makes the rims undesirable for thieves. Wheel thefts are extremely rare in my country. They usually steal the car itself which I'm also not scared of because it's so rare. If I were in the UK I'd park my car in the living room and sleep in it lol

The condensation in headlight issues you have, how bad is it? Can you post a pic?

Reason I ask is because it is quite normal for this to happen in LED headlights, although it should only be light misting and not full on condensation around the whole assembly.
Here are pics of both headlights. Both now condense.

Those look exactly like mine do in early morning, especially if I try to wash the car when it's cold outside.

I believe it is completely normal, I've seen the same happen on BMWs and Porsches with LED lights.

We've had 5 full LED cars in the family. This is the only one with condensation in the headlights. I think it's an i30N issue. Asked 3 people at the dealer. All said that mine is the first LED i30 they've ever sold with this issue. I take their words with a grain of salt of course. It's not impacting the visibility but it just looks cheap and enforces the "Korean cars are built poorly" myth that a lot of people have mentioned to me since I got the car. I love the car and won't be selling it any time soon but stuff like this makes sure my next car won't be a Hyundai.

Had to have the new winters reinstalled today because the first tyre shop didn't "pop" them properly so the sidewalls didn't have proper contact with the rims. The result was a wobbly ride. The correct way to do it is to inflate them to 5-6 bar after installing them so the tyres can stretch out properly. After that you let the air out and inflate them to recommended pressures. The first tyre shop had only inflated them to 3 bar so they didn't stretch out fully.

Like what you've done with 'finishing off' the roof. Now that you've debadged it, are you just going to paint that leftover adhesive black or what :p?

Had PPF (PremiumShield) put on the front of the car today (bumper, fenders, hood, headlights, mirrors and A pillars). Can't notice it at all with a naked eye. Next step is to detail and ceramic coat the rest of the car. Only then will I be able to stop worrying and enjoy the damn thing. :D

A friend got me these as gift. I tried them out but I think I'll be removing them. Because they are aluminium and not rubber they make a rattle when other metal stuff touches them (coins, phone charger etc.). Plus they don't fit as snug as my OCD would like even though they are specific for the hatchback. I'll keep them in the glovebox and put them back when riding with that particular friend so he doesn't get offended :D
