My Hyundai i30 Hyper Silver SX 2.0L Manual has finally been picked up at 9am on 6th August 2009. I could not have been happier as it is the first time I’m buying myself a brand new car.
After picking her up which took about 40 minutes, I headed straight to uni as I had to get to a lecture at 11.30am. Since I had almost 1.5 hours to spare, I drove around campus to look for a spot to take some photos, but there wasn’t really a good spot unless I stop in the middle of the road or drive over the curb and park on some grass (but no, I don’t wanna do that on her first day out with me, lol).
Anyway, I finally found an okay place, so here’s some photos (do click to enlarge individually):
Very ashamed to be saying this, but I have stalled her like 8 times just today. I find that it’s such a smooth and quiet ride compared to my 1990 Nissan Pulsar and Supra, and the stick is still quite stiff, especially on the Reverse, 1st and 2nd gear. Or maybe I really do suck at driving manual? :/
All I can say now is that I LOVE the car. Best car I’ve owned!
