    Lancer A72 Saturn Engine

    I am interested in buying a Lancer A72 station wagon car which has got the saturn engine (4G33), I need to know about the spare parts availability of this car engine,the car is 8Sri. has it got a timing chain or timing belt.will the timing chain be a nuisance with lack of spares ..... I have no idea on this ? Does this car have a spare tyre well at the end of the rear seat I forgot to check that what is the main difference between the orient and the saturn, for normal day to day driving will this be OK. Any Lancer owner who can give me advice about this car overall will be much appreciated and your answer will make me take a more valued decision.
  2. gUYS, I am thinking of getting a printer epson me-110 with the CISS unit. i am a bit confused if i should go with this or a laser printer basic one. I might be printing about 300+ pages per month. The epson is modified to work with a CISS unit and can print color...while the laser can print only black and white. any ideas about this or am i missing other products

    Nissan March K10

    is the proton wira a common car....i think it is even rare than the K10. the other thing i have noted is that even 300- marutis go for about 7.5k

    Nissan March K10

    there are some good ones around Kandy and if i am not wrong it is known as the nisaasn micra in other countries. My frined had one and looks apart it was a silent ride with AC,but do not pay anything more than 6k. parts are easy to find as per my friend. he has a 15sri one which original hood railings. at 8k u can even look for nisssan HB12 ( trad sunny) or even mitsubishi mirage( wijeweera model) or lancer C12 which are also good options

    Contact Lenses

    Friends, I have a question for all the people who have been using contact lenses for some time now. Well after nearly almost 25 years of wearing spectacles I finally decided to shift into contacts, inspired by my sister using it for like 4 years now. I went to a popular place in ward place which starts with the word Techno........ this happened on 29/5 may and I got myself a pair of brown soft permanent contact lenses. learnt to use it right there under the advise of the optometrist and came home a happy man. i used the lenses as prescribed washing my hands, and keeping it in fluid and changing the fluid as told. to be frank since i am on the initial stages i would only wear them for about 3 days a week . However last Tuesday after wearing them on i noticed that my right lense has cracked. the lense itself is liked a polythene and has cracked and does not stay like it should in the eyes. Why did this happen? Has this happened to anyone before( no one including my sister can explain because this has not happened to any one we know so far) to be frank I am a bit baffled since i used it quite carefully, is it because of low quality work? Need to know the scenario before i go to speak to them I guess i should have sticked to my good old pair of spectacles instead of wasting 15k on this Thanks Rameez

  19. guys thought of starting a thread about the top 5 things you would do when your car decides to stall.... My friend who was in aussie said that when they buy a car there is a payment to be made to an oraganisation( similar to AA in sri Lanka) on an annual basis so that if your car stops they will come to the rescuse anywhere in australia. Since over here this is not the practise generally what are the top 5 things you would do.
  20. our people although come to help...sometimes scorn at you when car breaks down. I have seen this specially from the BMW and Mercs.Felt really sorry for a gentlemen who was in his 60s when his corolla KE72 packed up near DS Senanayake College

    Ebay Wifi Antennas

    Chogm 2013

    Now now Guys I think silvi is ROFL.....even now . I think he is taking all of us for a good ride.!!! and pretending that he cannot understand Silvi come on....dont tell me that you guys did not flirt during the bellbottom and heavy side Balm era Silvi on a serious note what i meant was that we will be screwed during the budget after the colossal expenditure taken into account. Please let us not forget that apart from the highways...this will not result in any money generating activities at least in the immediate short run..the end result is a very tight cash budget ...with desperate signs like mobile phone tax, death tax,air pollution tax.....etc.
