    I joined this forum in 2012 when I only had a rusty mountain bike with no brakes! Learned lots and finally obtained my dream. Didn't think of resale,fuel or what not. Just followed my heart! But sad to see the newer generation of car buyers, makes me weep hard. Does anybody even care about driving the damn thing anymore? instead of resale and fuel! This is not showing off. Just an Appreciation to AL and the community! PS. Its a 2 Liter Turbo with 200 horses and still does over 13kmpl city, so go f*** off with ur premios and vezis!

    For almost 20 years my dad has been scraping and dinging my cars, his response it's just metal go fix it. Today I dinged his Vitara by accident., hes called out war now. He went all Martin Luther King on me with the speeches.

    The elusive 1000km oil change! So I asked the retailer in UK from whom I purchased the Vitara, he insisted on the 1000km oil change, But my importer said to run it 5000km, to add the so called engineer at A*W Pitstop also adviced to run 2500km-5000km prior to the break in oil change. Also he insisted the engine was broken in on a table prior to installation and not to worry. This is when the car manual explicitly mentions to break in and to time the turbo prior to turning off Well it seems that the car knows better than all of us! It displayed this today just at 1300km

    The only description on an Ad reads "This car 2nd Owner. Both owners are doing senior level executive jobs," like who the F### cares??? ?

    On the way home from the airport on the Katunayake expressway in a new Nissan Caravan. The driver has no regard for the speed limit, lane rules or other vehicles. I'm holding on to a bar (and my dear life) inside the van, both feet pressed against the floor. Yes, it has no seat belts. I'm asking myself "obata sathutui da dan?"

    All my time spent washing and waxing the car culminates in that moment when a passing by car winds the shutter down and the driver/passenger shout "car eka wikunanawada?" 😋

    Facebook group motoring mentality; summarized Everything you own does 30kmpl or you are not cool Everyone owns a beast or a babe Everything second hand is bad Car salesman have a right to make the cheapest offer, yet sell for extortion prices. A seller has to agree, Everyone wants WhatsApp pics of a classified. car salesman can facelift, but if the first owner does it, it’s a wreck 0w20 from salad to lube to engine oil. Used Turbo cars are bad, but everyone wants to Turbo their car for a premium. A newer Suv or car from 2010s 2012s are finicky, got electronics and must go cheap, whereas old pajeros and land cruisers that have been to the moon are quoted absurd figures. Every sports car or rare car has no book - commenters the group moderator or admin is a self proclaimed god of motoring.

    I don't get it....why would the cars one person can buy for Xmil Rs. be any different from the cars another person can buy for the same budget ?

    So I took the Vitara to the A*W inspection camp in Kandy today, well impressed as they are quite aware of the model and the technical aspects, however It was hoist inspection, suspension and the scan tool, which again they said is compatible with UK imports. all in all it was a good effort

    The Vitara bug caught me, a week in the ICU with dengue and finally bit the bullet, I bought one! Loving it.

    Drove the new Mitsu Eclipse Cross and I’m amazed by the balance between comfort and handling. Certainly comfortable as a car, while being sporty enough to rocket out the corners. Highly recommend over the Honda CRV. The turbocharged 1500cc is much more livelier than what you get in the CRV. Only downside is the fuel economy which is around 12kmpl during long runs and 6-7 round the town.

    Is it just me or are there more and more classifieds with genuine mileage - even for mainstream cars? I see people not being afraid to advertise mileages of 200,000 + this is a good trend.

    I wish this forum would go back to the old days. When hybrids weren't here. Fuel figures were always absurd. Anything below 1300cc was a maruti, real old petrolheads and stories of their broken cars, projects, builds and younger petrolheads (like us - now old) speaking of drags and driving civics to extinction. A world where a Suv always had 4wd. I was just a peer back then. But I learnt a lot.

    Been reading a post about Axio and reminded me of many many things. Anyway, the most significant thing is that Toyota watered down it’s quality and refinement after the 140 series. I’m not talking about the all new Corolla series, but the 160 series Axio. Yes, the 140 X grade had less options than a doctor sunny and the interior was plasticy. Still the colour combination of the enterior, design shouted that you are in a class above of all the Vitz and Belta owners. But the 160 series interior is lacking this plush feeling. Interior is dull and you get the same feeling like you are in a Vitz. Also noticed that the engine is more noisier and unrefined, where the 140 series sound deadening was closer to that of the Premio and Allion. Then finally, Toyota rolls out the “just” Corolla crushing the Axio and even the Allion, Premio in terms of options and looks. The ride might be better too due to the independent rear sus.

    So I was at a friend's home and his dad (about 60 years old) came over and was talking about the Lancer he bought brand new in 1980 (11-6005) and had used it on an all-ceylon tour, trips, occassions, wedding car, what not and still talks about it like a missing family member. The stare and smile he & his wife gave me when I ran a quick license plate check and told him the car was lastly in the hands of LOLC and could *possibly* be running, was priceless! He has now made it his mission to find that car and bring it back home if it's still out there. Little things like this make life wonderful! Lancers & Lankans go together like paan & parippu it seems. Never got a proper chance to drive my dad's 2008 GLX. Oh well, someday.

    Typical idiotic Lankan-buyer mindset.. I have recieved calls from 7 different people in the past 4 days and and none of them bother to read the description and try to negotiate the price over the phone. One fella told me he had a specific amount of money in hand and is demanding my car for that specific amount and tried to teach me what my car is worth in today's market as he wants to resell for a profit. My mom hearing the convo, asked for the phone and politely told the caller to take a hike. Pisses me off everytime.

    Toyota Lanka are replacing the Air Bag detonator of several models that came around 2008(Corolla 141, etc), which is free of charge. Check with Toyota Lanka whether your model needs this replacement as well.

    A suggestion to the admins / moderators Why not upgrade the whole advert experience, pics are tiny, it looks dated, and hard to find stuff. Plus due to insane charges, the “famous site” has lesser ads by the day and it’s getting hard to get hold of a good vehicle there. Pretty much there’s no competition either, so why not use this opportunity to boost the advert section. We d all love to see this forum go on in every aspect. This is the oldest site here AFAIK

    You have no idea of the new 'Colour change process' at RMV you guys... went 2 times and still couldn't get it done.. I don't think I ever will... unlike those days, you cant get it done easily now. if you ever decide to change colour or any modification to your car which requires book update, might as well forget about it cuz they wont approve it unless you go there 4,5 times and kiss their ass. I will separately create a new post for the new process for colour changes and modifications.

    Ok so this time Restoration I think, I replaced every possible worn out part, and spent more than the last and and the satisfaction is also higher than the last.. still not done with it though.. Basically to replace a worn out nickle handle I purchased an entire Presea door! We are talking about that kind of a restoration here cuz i have severe OCD.

    I have spent 50k on transport and mechanic costs inspecting Presea's all around the country for the past month upto today. And I'm getting tired of it. But do I settle for less? No, the hunt continues for an H' number automatic...
