  1. Hi. I haven't read the thread thoroughly so I don't know if you've bought the car above. I'd advise you to save up a bit a go for a better example. Because once you do all the tinkering,painting and upholstery it easily exceed twice the purchase price at least. Most of these cars have been butchered and abused by 'buying and selling' people So unless its REALLY cheap, keep looking and buy a minter. 

    I know the appeal of doing a project car from ground up, but don't waste your money.

    Anyway good to see another project thread, for tips and tricks on restoring,look up a project thread I did on an old Triumph on these forums, if its still online.

  3. Nobody seems to like LG on AL :( Im sort of attached to the leather back :/

    I use the G3 as a second phone for almost 2 years now.Love it.I checked out the G4 recently but it was not a worthy upgrade IMO.

    Going back to Blackberry next with the Priv.

  4. Well that was a fukin waste of time...

  5. As cars for your sales reps? But even, then wouldn't the Alto be the better choice based on reliability and ease of maintenance?

    Yeah something like that.

    Not really,Both are sort of equal when it comes to reliability and maintenance.The Alto is definitely more easier on the depreciation.The Nano is truly a fun car to drive as both Supra and esdeez will attest.I got a good deal from D*MO so I went with Nano.

  6. @MD, can you order directly from the K&N site? If I remember right, they just refer you to their local dealer listing, ie Motorcade for us. Wanted a pair for a bike but Motorcade wanted a kidney for it!

    You're right,I forgot.There is no check out on the site .What I did was email them regarding the Triumph's air filters and someone got back to me from their California Headquarters as I remember.Or might have been a reseller in CA.Not sure.But he was able to get the custom TR2/3/3A filters for me.Here's the post I made - http://forum.autolanka.com/topic/13459-triumph-t-r-restore-project/?p=238152

  7. I test drove the new Indica(xeta),Nano,Alto,Hyundai Eon and Panda within the last month.The Indica is a good car but the Alto seems the more refined and easily sellable too.Reccomend the Alto or Hyundai for private use.

    If you're wondering which one I'd choose,I ended up buying two Nanos.

  8. If you just want a wash and reusable air filter(plus a slight increase of power),K&N makes filters that fit most air boxes.Just go to their website enter the make,model etc of your car and get the serial number of the filter.Then check with Motorcade if they have it or just order directly from the website.

  9. Huh? What gives? 1 cylinder 1 strokes? As in bikes? Or did you go electric as in a Leaf or a Model S?

    Oh no....Its much MUCH worse...Three wheelers! :lol:

    But not to worry we're doing our best to rectify the issue ASAP.

    btw any U2 fans in the forum?

    Yup one here.Or atleast I like their pre 2000 work with The Joshua Tree being my most favorite album of all time...I think VVti is a massive fan too.

  10. Why not try Bolgoda Lake in the morning?If you know an owner of a lake front Villa even better.

    Anyway just make sure the photog is a 'çar guy'.Otherwise the long trip will be a waste if the the camera guy doesn't know the best angles of a car.The best car photogs I know are Peri,Rajith(T&T),Charitha(octanehead),Dilesh,Esdeez,Silver but they don't work for free.

    BTW you need not go to exotic locales for a car photoshoot.A great photographer can take awesome shots on any location.For example all the pics below were taken on busy Colombo streets without any special preparations and while on the move.

  11. I watched a crappy CAM copy of Mission Impossible Rogue Nation cos I quite like Tom Cruise(Despite his involvement with that cooky cult,Scientology).And it was awesome.This is how a true action movie should be made. Vin Diesel and the F&F gang,please take note.Can't wait to watch it again when a decent copy comes out.

    Speaking of Scientology,Watch 'Going Clear'.A great documentary about the "religion" and it's shady inner workings.
