    N16 2000

    What are the consequences of using a nissan n16 2000 super saloon or an ex saloon? Is the fuel consumption bad and the maintenance is high?
  3. Hi guys! I’m a newbie to this thing. I really need help. What would be the best saloon or sedan car to buy between 1 million to 1.8 million. I would be rather considering the fuel consumption too and better tell me about the maintenance costs too

    Import Honda CRV

    If you expect off road prowess and ground clearance, not the best option got a little bit of tech though, city oriented but enough for a small weekend outing more or less a glorified family van, so consider other options as well, also they loose value in months, you can find low mileage few ,months used ones for about 1mil less,

    Import Honda CRV

    I guess the Australian version might suit better as the climate conditions are somewhat similar. Having said that, there are several JDMs of various car makes imported in to Sri Lanka by the day. So importing from either should be fine.

    Purchasing a new car.

    Stretch your budget a bit more and get a Vitz, safest option provided u get a good one. 1. Alto - better options for that budget, poorly equipped and small, unless u get the rs 2. Daihatsu Mira is not that bad, they don’t break that often for you to go looking for parts this early, 3. Wagon R - quite true

    Purchasing a new car.

    How about a turbocharged full option kei Van such as the Suzuki Every Join, Daihatsu Atrai, Nissan Clipper Join etc. More space, More versatile and easy to maintain.
  12. That’s a good read. Actually, It’s really difficult to change the mindset of Sri Lankan’s. Just look at how many vehicles go in the road with only one passenger even during high traffic times. We cannot really blame them due to the damn level our public transport is in. However, we can try to improve the situation as much as we can. One such way is carpooling. But, this is not popular among Sri Lankans. There are some carpooling and ridesharing websites as well as Apps but I really don’t think we are using them. I posted on each of these sites offering my ride for sharing several months ago. But only two people called me back. One person’s destination was a bit far from my workplace and hence had to refuse it and the other was a lady and she did not call me back when I said that I travel with my Wife in the morning . I even made a post in AL as well. So, there are little things we can tryout by over selves to improve the situation. But, very few people are willing to take the initiative it seems.
  13. still no leak founded, oil level is between High and low ( half level), top ups in nearly 3 months ago. Thanks for your support.
  14. Sinhalese are people who lived under kings with strict rules.They never knew how to manage and think for themselfs.It is hard coded in their genes.Only way is heavy penalties and imprisonment.

    Can you stretch your budget a bit? If so, you can add a brand new Kia Picanto and Perodua Axia to your list.
  16. This is an interesting piece. http://www.ft.lk/opinion/Sustainable-and-broad-minded-solution-for-Colombo-s-traffic/14-674188 Quick Quotes "I didn’t want to explain to him that the traffic is created by drivers who drives recklessly and selfishly to reach their destination as fast as possible. They never follow lane discipline, never bother about pedestrians, and they go wherever they can move their vehicle thinking that this is the way to avoid traffic in Sri Lanka." "An open-minded and well-disciplined public will reduce 50% of self-created traffic jams." I doubt that is a research backed number, but it will definitely help. Some research here. https://www.smartmotorist.com/traffic-jams Now why do I bother posting? I can't reform everyone. But here is the hope. By reading this and learning something, it might cause people to modify their own behaviour. I have done a lot of practicing lane discipline. See the problem is, people in traffic are more reactive, they try to wriggle into whatever tiny space they can (watch the tuks) and then find themselves on the wrong lane. Of course, we can't always follow the recommended practice, have to keep moving out of the left lane due to potholes or idiots who parked cars where cars should be moving. But proactively putting yourself in the correct lane to manage your turns will help ease the traffic tremendously. As a small example take the traffic lights in front of Orion City. There is at least 4 lanes there, but cars that can travel straight through the lights are eternally stuck behind people who want to turn but occupy the wrong lanes coz they think they can get their thing done faster by doing so. In the end, my conclusion is this. When using public property, you do not have a right. You have a duty. This is the mindset I'm gonna have. Hopefully it will inspire others, but at least I'll gonna try it. Can't preach it without practicing it
  17. Quoting myself here... Found a great web site to check, verify and decide on wheel and Tyre upgrading for your car. https://www.wheel-size.com/ We can select our model and check OEM wheel specs and matching wheels and tyres and also do comparisons. Have a check yourselves. I don't know if this is public knowledge and I was the one found it just today though.

    Leather Seat Restoration

    Hello Everyone, One my friends are looking to change the color of his leather seats. any place which will use the dye and change the color? black to brown. most placed i called they do not change the color with dye. Regards
  20. Engine capacity/ compression/ Octane rating/ power out put/ turbo / naturally aspirated will only have partial dependency on the fuel requirement. It is the sate of tune of the engine by the manufacturer, you have to go by their commendation. Even a 2.0 L naturally aspirated engine may need 95 octane based on the state of tune.
  21. What the hell is wrong with Toyota now!!!??? They’re trying to make luxo barges like Lexus LS sportier, while letting the Supra to be designed by the BMW. What a shame!!!

  22. Correct - but actually this has got nothing to do with the Market (Europe/Non Europe) : to put it simply the 1.0L engine requires 95 OCT since it's a high compression engine. The 1.5 Would not. It's a matter of engine and not version/region.

    Honda Civic Sedan 2019

    Little above 11Km/L is good figure. Even after maintenance, my one does not more than 8Km/L
  24. Correct. If Agent (Stafford Motors) bring down cars can run with 92 Octane. Same sedan Stafford quote me 89 lacks Rs.. 😮

    Issue with Honda CR-V 2018 JDM

    By point #4, do you mean your head unit officially does not support Android Auto? If so, the chance of getting it to work by some hack are virtually zero. Btw Android Auto is not officially supported in SL as of yet (the app is not available in SL play store). But if you downloaded the apk from an external site, it always worked in SL even when I tried it more than 6 months back.
