    Why does this happen to mirrors?

    Some sort of strong chemical was used to clean the mirror resulting in the liquid dripping to the bottom and degrading the rubber/compound sealing. During subsequent cleaning the liquid has diluted the reflective layer behind the mirror. I don't think it will spread

    Honda grace ex yom 2014/12

    Genuine 70-80K mileage is DCT issue territory. A test drive would help to determine if the clutch is slipping
  3. The free services at the place you mentioned is a farce. They charge you for labour one way or another. For my Wagon R I went only once for the so called free service. After that routine stuff are done at near by garage under my Father in law's watch. So you will be better off at Agents. Genuine people will be interested in buying your vehicle if its agent maintained.

    Mazda 6 with skyactive did somewhere around 9, so mazda 3 would be around 10 I guess

    I don't think 2014 Mazda 3 has the skyactive engine as these were imported by the agents. Only Mazda 6 had the skyactive engine.

    I don't think we should. What we should is to ignore this thread

    Very good point, Specially how quickly you will need replacements, Depreciation loss after 12 months (For this vehicle I would think its more than 20% of vehicle cost) and it will be very very difficult to find a buyer second hand, Also it will be very difficult to find leasing companies/banks to finance this unless you have a very good credit rating. All these will increase cost of ownership beyond the initial cash outlay.

    Servicing Audi A!

    It is just a registration fee inclusive price. I think when maintaining at agents there will be a premium attached. They said subsequent services will cost less. (Around 35K) Some times Vishwa motors are not professional in their work. I did some wire harness replacement two months back due to rat damage. They forgot to remove the OBD eleven device from the port and I saw it after a month when I noticed the red light. Im also hoping to do a service this month and lets see how it goes. I have done maintenance of my vehicles at Toyota/Colonial/Bosch/Stafford so lets see how Audi agents go comparatively. I agree on replacement part prices. It cost me 58K to replace brake pads and sensor just after 25K mileage.

    Servicing Audi A!

    well im not doing the initial service since I have already done two services at Bosch. However they recommend to do the initial service at 2500 Km if you are not sure of the milage of vehicle. They started from this month I think.

    Servicing Audi A!

    Audi agents now carry out maintenance and repairs for personally imported vehicles as well. For Audi A5 initial service will be 70K and subsequent services will cost approx. 35K They give you the roadside assistance etc etc. I will be doing the initial service within next month.

    Buying a leased car

    If you are signing a document abroad it should be done at the embassy in front of specified official and follow the due process. Otherwise it will not be acceptable. Also such PA should be a recent one as we will not know if the PA has been cancelled subsequently.

    Buying a leased car

    Normally such letters are accepted if the letter is signed in front of the representative of the finance company. (When vehicle is sold etc.) Otherwise there is the risk of forgery.

    Can some one give the contact numbers of these buggers to each other so that they can have their DFSK love talk privately.

    Well M8 no science is required here. It is bloody obvious for even a guy with an average IQ. But these arguments will not serve any purpose in promoting this vehicle. Its one thing having all the bells and whistles and its another thing how it works in the real world. Example : I have driven a Wagon R, Vezel and a Audi which have the collision mitigation braking system. Wagon R and Vezel, its near impossible to drive in Colombo Traffic with it on. However Audi, so far has worked perfectly. Rs.6-7Mn is no peanuts in present context and to invest in a Iffy vehicle is financial suicide. I do not know if any bank in Sri Lanka will offer 50% leasing to this vehicle.
