    Nano coating is it worth on an old car?

    Agree with Hyaenidae Makes no sense to have it on old paint/old car unless you have repainted it fully with some good stuff . Best would be to invest in a good wax ( not the standard stuff which you get in your supermarkets ) but brands such as Meguiar's , Mothers carer care product range etc.

    Mazda p1515 error code

    Hi It could be reacted to Electric Current Circuit as I came across the same related to Mazda models after 2005. Hence if that's the case then there a lot to look in to. Best is to give a visit to either Colonial or Mazna Motors.
  3. Having had to live with a N16 ( When I say this, its due to the fact I made some decisions that I had no option at that time) I can share the below. * fuel economy is CRAP - if you are looking for N16, try to get the 1.5CC or better version * Looks - nothing much and very bland *Parts are relatively cheap and available very freetly There are better options out there in the market, do some test driving and take time to do a good research and most importantly , go with what makes you happy in the sense of look and feel - Got the mechanical aspects checked by qualified person - not a maka bass. (Sorry Cant Mention names but It starts with Car Ch%$#)

    Mazda Axela hybrid gear box oil change

    Hi With regards to the engine oil, strongly recommend Castrol as said by the agents. On previous models such as the BJ , slug buildup was there for engines which used Mobil . Best avoid fully syntactic oil completely. castrol magnatec is a good oil and can run up to 10K without an issue but I changed in 7-8000. stick to the ratings mus as possible as the velocity is critical. As for the gearbox, Well I totally disagree with concept of "Lifetime" as said by one member, it means 50,000K . Having said that u need to ensure that you have the correct brand and oil type specified by manufacture. I had to suffer from a case where the previous owner not using the Mazda MV oil. Did a lot of research and found out that the MV or M5 oil velocity is different form other oils who claim it is compatible. Hence don't risk and try to get the correct oil. Also note the interval would be best changed at least 30-40000 Km simply due to the heat condition we have here along with the lovely traffic . PS not trying to promote the brand but just the simple fact that type of oils do have it;s own characteristics . Please delete if not allowed

    Mazda Bj5p

    I beg to differ - As you said most Maka Bass fellows mess it up and give you wrong advice. eg. The tiptronic box in the BJ series required the V grade oil, simply because of vilocity - any other oil would generally mess it up - the price is hefty to get it sorted. Same with the engine oil - synthetic will not go well specailly a well known brand - Nothing wrong with the brand but not suited for BJ Hence go to some one with knowledge on Mazda's the naturally would be Mazna and now there are several off shoots who are equally or even better now in the market

    Mazda Demio 2008

    Are you referring to the Lemon Green color one ? Simply if the car is in good shape and the same has been maintained well, I for one don't see a reason to go for it just because it's green . Personally Like the color and would not give 2 hoots about what others think - I'm sure that when you want to sell, there would be someone who fancies it - That is if you have kept her in the condition she ought to be.

    Mazda demio 2018

    If the 2018 Demio is with Sky active - they you would be getting better mileage for sure. If not mistaken the Demio comes with a 1.3 L engine as opposed to a 1L in Vitz. Demio also comes as Mazda 2 in a slightly different variant from Demio. As iRage said - Demio is above the Vitz grade in all aspects.
