    Budget 2019

    My point here being Japs have not mated Turbos with Hybrid or PHEV tech in any significant scale yet and are lagging behind their {luxury} European counterparts who are doing it in a large scale to achieve tax breaks and fuel efficiency goals with far better safety tech. Though the manufacturer price of these high end vehicles might be almost twice the price of a similar Jap vehicle the tax/duty benefits and the final cost makes these modern euros more appealing ( CIF value expressed as a fraction of the total cost to acquire). One can only presume that plenty of C & E 300de Mercs will be finding their way here at least on retirement permits. Most of the budget ICE vehicles that the ever evolving duty cum luxury taxes are progressively promoting to be imported are death traps considering the developing road network and expressways.
  4. Anyone else using Akebono brake pads?

    Last time I installed Akebono pads at the front and FBK shoes at the back. Planning to get Akebono front and back

    A few points: 1. Nope....the HSD was completely revamped for the TNGA platform...does it have know-how from the original HSD integrated in to it...yes. But that is like saying a modern internal combustion engine is the same as a century old technology. 2. This is luxury tax..not to be confused with eco tax. The excise taxes, etc...are there for providing benefits for eco friendly cars. If the objective was to lessen the foreign exchange being seeped out in buying cars...then incentivisizing the purchase of a high value vehicle does not work does it ? 3. The Japanese have been R&Ding the downsized engines for a sometime and now they are being rolled out...so yes...the Corolla and even the mini cross overs come with a 1.2L engine.

    Actually a E300 de (and C300 de) is more eco friendly as it is a PHEV and can do daily city commutes on EV mode and long distance trips on diesel which gives better fuel economy than a petrol non PHEV hybrid vehicle. The Camry Hybrid which has a 2.5 litre petrol engine cannot be considered equally versatile. The Camry hybrid is based on 2 decade old hybrid synergy drive tech. If the Japs can combine turbo and PHEV tech like euro cars one could have Camrys and Accords running on 1.5-1.8 L engines and Axios and Prii running on 1 - 1.2 l. *The BMW 740e and Range Rover PHEV have 2 L engines.

    That is how our policy makers think. Camry is luxurious than a Merc E300. I think best way is horse power or the CIF if they really want to save foreign currency.

    Budget 2019

    Still makes no sense....so a base Hybrid Camry will be slammed with luxury tax whilst a Turbo charged diesel Hybrid E-Class will not ? (the CIF value will exceed the tax threshold but still it says 0% luxury tax).
  11. Do i see a crack there in the rail ? that rail will break away. You are better off replacing i guess. Some of my caps are cracked due to UV damage. Even if I try to remove them to repair, they will break like papadam 🙂

    place to buy Suzuki Swift Ignis 2003 Roof Rail Front cap

    Try Japan Lanka. If they have a broken rail, you might be able to get a cap off it. If not, you may have to buy the whole thing. I had the same problem sometime ago. Ended up buying a pair of roof rails. As I recall, it didn't cost much. Around 5000 for the pair I think.

    Exactly. It's one time payment to the customs at the time of clearing the vehicle. But this circular doesn't say anything about annual up to 7 years luxury tax.
  17. amsandun

    Budget 2019

    It's a one time payment which is to be paid at the time of importation of the vehicle.

    Budget 2019

    This luxury tax is a one time payment or we pay it yearly?

    Budget 2019

    so the 3.5million CIF value and the engine capacity BOTH need to be exceeded? for example in the segment non-hybrid petrol, no additional luxury tax upto 1800CC?
