    Kind of difficult to pinpoint one BUT I just have this inexplicable thing for the Datsun 240Z - I know I'll never own an actual one but thankfully my father gave me a 1/18 for Christmas a few years back.

    MITSUBISHI RE 72826 A THERMO RELAY Finally figured out the wiring for this. I've hastily drawn the wiring diagram on MS paint. This thermo-relay uses a Mitsubishi M51202 IC OPamp as a voltage comparator to compare the potential difference between the NTC resistor used as a sensor and a rheostat used to set the temperature. If the potential difference across the NTC resistor is higher than the potential difference across the rheostat, the AC relay is energized by the output voltage. Here are the wiring diagrams, pinouts, and schematics for the IC. In my case, the unit was faulty due to a blown Zenner. Replacing it solved the issue. Looks like Mitsu L200 and L300 has the same unit.

    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.

    Sorry to say, Overhaul is not a part of general maintenance,.. but your van is not new. Replace the air filter , as the mileage is just an optimistic indicator, better not base your decision on that alone. check under the engine for possible oil leaks.

    This was my ultimate dream car too - but I want my dream car to be a daily runner, Evo X with its 98 octane fuel requirement doesn't seem like a "feasible" daily runner (at least in Sri Lanka) so I'm hoping to buy an EX and swap a 4B11 non-turbo engine + Manual transmission, as a "fun" car

    Uhh...about this statement....you need to understand certain things. "G Superior" PACKAGE was an actual/official thing Toyota dealers offered as a DEALER PACKAGE. It was offered on the highest grade of the 1.5 or 1.8L variant. So it isn't that Sri Lankans call the F-EX package or whatever the G Superior. So when Toyota dealers sell an F-EX or what ever with the G Superior PACKAGE they would have gotten the highest grade with all the logical manufacturer options and then attached the original accessories. In SL, in order to save money on import (both in purchase and taxes which compound the cost), they just got the standard highest grades of the 1.5L (usually without the spec'd manufacture options) and stuck the locally purchased accessories. No..this is the oxymoronic way (sorry). Through-out the time of the model, the manufacturer releases special/limited editions. When they do that they typically mix and match options/accessories. So saying that grade CDE will have a certain type of LED bulb'd lamp and speedometer and grade ABC will only have a lesser type is not accurate. Also, these parts can be changed and our car sales people do change them because doing so increases their profit margins. the ONLY way to figure out what the actual grade for Toyotas is the frame code/type. Nothing else...that is it (unfortunately this does not work with some brands). Unfortunately, you still will not know whether the package/edition is legit or not. If the package/edition is a manufacturer (or special dealer) variant then there will be a notation at the end of the the frame code/type. Example ACA31 RAV4 X Limited package would have the code AXA31-AW....-X (<-- the last -X shows the special variant) The Allion comes as A15, A18 and A20 grades A15 = NZT26x-CEXEK A18 = ZRT26x - CEXEK (with 2ZR-FE engine) ZRT26x - CEXEP (for 2ZR-FAE engine) A20 = ZRT261 - CEXGP Then each grade has variants/editions. Within the 2007 - 2010 model year G and S packages were offered. Thus the above codes had a -G and uhh...I think a -S at the end of the code. In 2008 they released a trimmed down variant called the standard package for the A15 and A18 (primarily as a business/fleet model) and those had the -U at the end. The Premio has the same frame codes as the above for each of its grades 1.5F, 1.8X, 2.0G (replace the C in the code with A). then the L packages and L packages came with -F and -L and other letters depending on what Toyota fancied on calling its grade range. The above works for MANUFACTURER packages/editions. For normal dealer packages/editions that were available, like the G Superior DEALER package for the 1.5L or 1.8L variants would have no coded identification.

    From what I’ve seen, the vents for rear are available in the highest grade of the 1.5L Premio/Allion 2013 and above models for sure. Premio’s F-EX package(what they call g superior in SL) and Allion G Plus(It’s properly called atleast😅) are equipped. I checked two 2010-2012 F-L package cars(which is a grade below F-EX) and they didn’t have those. But both of them were rebadged as G Superior. Maybe the real F-EX packages might have those vents. I think your Allion is a middle tier edition(I can’t remember the names of the grades of 2007-2009 Allions). Best thing is to check whether your 3rd brake light(mounted on the rear parcel shelf) has 9 led lamps.Top tier versions had 9 leds instead of four.Also the leather stitched steering wheel is another fact for the top spec version. If yours not a one, the we can guess that the top version might have the option.Anyway it’s not much of a great deal, but does make it nicer for the rear passengers.

    Bodywork started after disassembling almost all parts. Remain only the outer shell of the car with wiring harness which can not pullout easily. Gauge 14 & 18 zinc coated metal sheets used for most places. Firstly cut the right side of the chassis and welded new bar. Then the left side and floor board plates one by one. All door bottoms, front and back wings repaired. Mean time door hinge pins refilled at a lathe workshop. Finally attached all doors and wings again to check the aligning. Carbide 9kg and a oxygen cylinder consumed for this works.

    To be perfectly honest this is a rather new car so no one really knows too much about it : having said that there was a bit of uncertainty when the new civic came out as well in 2017 - 2 years later it's a relatively popular car. All depends on your requirement and the type of person you are, what stage of life you're in etc. Last year I was out looking for a car and one of my relatives strongly recommended buying a Premio/Allion (used ~2013) I actually looked for a few just to see what the big deal was about - and it was an OK practical car but it jusn't wasn't my type of car maybe if i was 10 years older and hit my 40's with Kids and stuff I would have gone for it but I didn't . So the best thing is for you to figure out your priorities. If you want a reliable car that will get you A-B with minimal fuss then you might consider the Premio - if you are more of an enthusiast, a bit of a car guy and the whole process of driving a car powered by the latest technology excites you then the insight. Actually that will be a waste of permit - cos the 1.0 T engine has one of the lowest Taxes - the permit allows a maximum of 3.6 Mil tax free but the tax for a turbocharged 1 Litre engine is around 1.8 M so that's a loss for him

    As an owner of a C-HR GT 1.2T for almost a year and driven it for 13K km, and also driven and did some research on new Premio, I would like to answer the questions you have on the Premio. Yes, there's no much difference in a 2019 Premio from a 2008 one except for Toyota safety sense C, front and rear parking sensors and automatic engine start/stop system. Yes, even though the Premio and C-HR has the same price tag (in some cases Premio is expensive than C-HR), the Premio is not even close to a C-HR when it comes to "options" you get. Few of them are #Toyota Safety Sense P with Pedestrians detection #Automatic dual zone climate control #Blind spot monitoring and Rear Cross traffic allert #Front seat heaters #Radar cruise control with low speed follow #All LED lights with sequential turning lamps and day time running lights #C-HR logo projector #Auto dimming rear view mirror #Heated side mirrors What Premio has which C-HR is missing is electric driver's seat adjusters while C-HR has electric lumbar support only. Driving pleasure- No there's none , but very comfortable ride for driver and passengers.

    Hi!, There is no doubt that most of the Sri lankans are in the mood of complaining rather than appreciating. Everything under the sun is subject to change So it had better to use it for a while & have your own comment. For the record; Micro Panda will be an ideal car for your all commuting needs but be sure to buy a new or fully checked used one cause the condition matters & it it in the hands of the user. If you use it well it gives you the best returns. The car does 14 - 16 Km/L in the city & 18 - 20 Km/L in the suburbs, Spacious & comfortable car with good steering. Service is compulsory in every 5000 Km to make it good. Chamara C.Perera CLUB CCP - SL

    Think of this way. Why do you want to marry a hooker if you know very well that she has syphillis, gonorrhoea and HIV? Just because she looks posh?

    Do not accelerate fast especially at traffic lights, get a pair of ear plugs so that you will not get disturbed by honking of people behind who are in desperate need to get to places. Always use the center lane so you don't get distracted from fast moving traffic On highway stick to 60-70 kmph this is the range Allion/ Premio is most economical, you should be able to get over 20 kmpl alternatively get in to a bus or train which is more economical or a sell the car and get a Wagon R which has more leg space, has all the bells and whistles and will be 10-12 in the city 16-18 highway even if you beat the s**t our of the car.

    Hi I have 2009 260 premio. I have problem when I go around 20kmh to 40kmh and takes the foot out of the accelerator and re accelerating it gives a knock.some times two knocks. Even quick accelerate from like 10kmh to 45kmh it gives that knock. All these happens mainly in traffic and it only happens time to time.
