    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 ?

    Long time reader finally decided to jump in the fun... hope to have a good time here. Apparently, I had registered an account here long time ago to ask some random question on behalf of my dad. But forget that, we didn't even get the van after all. Anyways, car lover ever since I was a baby, the recent discussions just made me want to start posting instead of just passively reading from the sidelines. And by that, I don't mean the cars for x million rupees budget, but rather some threads about Truenos, BZ Corollas, Altezzas, etc.

    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.
