  1. I was also in the hunt for one of these but it's difficult to find them here. Actually there's one manufacturer who assembles these E'Bikes in Sri lanka but unfortunately they only do exports and do not sell them in local market
  2. I don't think there's much of an issue with those models. they are assembled in sri lanka and parts are also readily available. They do exports to Europe countries as well and therefore i don't think there will be any issues with quality.
  3. You can goto either DSI Bikes, Lumala or Tomahawk in Bambalapitiya which are actually located next to another around the same place. It's easy to compare the models and purchase the one which suites you. Lumala has the widest selection though.

    Need a good Car around 2 million

    @SipaThe problem in your post is you have not mentioned 'what is your expectation?'. You have just mentioned two requirements. It should be a sedan around 2 million. Maybe If you can tell more details about your exact requirement it would be easier to provide options.

    Mazda familia 1997 registered cars

    Well, the general comment i can give about the BH series mazda is that it's a very decent and reliable car for it's age. A good workhorse which can be used as a daily runner even though its more than two decades old. Cannot provide you specific details as your question is very generic. You may wanna check some of the below threads to get further information since this car was discussed number of times in the past as pointed out by Davy. If you have any specific questions (such as fuel economy, parts availability etc.) you can ask them so that we can give you specific answers. http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/16570-low-budget-car-option/?hl=%2Bmazda+%2Bbutterfly#entry271360 http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/15880-best-sedan-car-for-13-lks/?page=0#comment-257846 http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/19718-good-family-vehicle-around-13-m/#comment-309708 http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/14041-what-is-the-comfortable-car-ae100-or-mazda-butterfly/?tab=comments#comment-215074 http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/17678-best-car-for-13m-with-good-fuel-consumption-full-option-easy-maintenance/#comment-291268

    Mazda familia 1997 registered cars

    are you looking for a mazda familia registered in 1997 or manufactured in 1997? if it's 1997 registration you might be talking about either BG series or BH series. if it's manufactured in 1997; you are talking about the BH series which is commonly known as 'Samanala light' model in SL market. So, which model are you interested in?
  7. Check at Mazna motors Aththidiya. I visited them last weekend and there was a newly arrived large shipment of used parts. they may have plenty of ECU's as well.

    Use of used tyre?

    If your tires does not have any uneven wear or side wall damage and if there's some tread depth left; most of the little road side tire shops will purchase them. I mean the kind of shops that are not dealers but small timers who are mainly involved in tire puncture repair kind of stuff. will not pay you much though. expect something around Rs 500-1500 based on the condition.

    Suggestions for a good car between 1.7-2.2 million

    Just out of curiosity.. if the pugs are such a pain in the a**; why would you go on and buy 3 of them? i mean you must have been convinced after buying two of them right? why on earth would you buy a third??

    Mazda Bj5p Repair

    Yeah. they are nearly 2 decades old and plenty of miles on them isnt it? So, its rather normal to expect minor shifting delays. But if it's a huge Thud sound or else the engine revvs so hard without shifting; Then it needs some attention.

    Mazda Bj5p Repair

    Yeah. as Stig has mentioned; they will fix it for free if its within 6 months. Anyways, did you check your gear oil level and the color of the gear oil?
  12. Being an owner of a FB14 almost a decade ago i would always ask any person to stick with the mere 1000 idiots in this forum (including me) and stay away from it instead of following the majority of intellectuals who fantasize about the FB14. Fed up of repeating my horror story on and on in this forum. Anybody who wish to know can refer the below link. http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/15880-best-sedan-car-for-13-lks/#comment-257891
  13. Its always good to plan ahead but seriously; planning ahead 10 years for purchasing a car is bit of a craze nowadays. We all know that the automotive technologies have begun to drastically change. Lots of technologies are hitting the market at a quick phase (Hybrids, EV’s, Fuel Cells etc). It’s really hard to anticipate the fate of a good old gasoline powered car in a decade in this vastly changing industry. By then, the gasoline powered cars could be mere antics. Some of the developed countries have already started to phase out gasoline cars from the streets. So, if the gasoline engine would slowly go out of production as a whole; it would not really matter the origin of your car as the demand for all gasoline powered cars would be very low by then. And based on the current rate of depreciation; the 60+ lacks you spend to purchase it would worth something like 25-30 lacks in 2028. Even though you may sell it for the purchased price, it has already depreciated. So, there are so many other aspects you should worry about and the country of origin would be the least. Who knows.. by 2028 Thailand may become one of the world’s automotive Giants. So, you might regret if you do not go ahead with this purchase after all

    Vehicle for around 2.0M

    Spare parts are easy to find around Colombo. There are some places in panchikawatte who specialize on mazda parts and Mazna motors Aththidiya has stocks available for any body or engine parts. Fuel economy would be 8-9 kmpl for an Automatic within city limits and above 11 away from city. it would do about a 1-2 kmpl more for a manual one. Second hand market is not bad. Would be the same as FB15, 110 etc.
