    The system calculate the remaining oil life based on the engine running time not the km run by the vehicle. Reset of the countdown can be set to 5000km as well. I guess when the car was manufactured in UK it was originally set for 10,000km. What I still fail to understand is this drastic difference in engine oil life in these 2 countries.

    You definitely, should consider the Lancer Ex, I used one for 5 years and sold mine in Feb 2018. It is absolutely a wonderful vehicle. Trinity bought a 2012 car recently. Can find more info under his thread.

    Guess who bought a Lancer EX

    Let me know if you are looking for a spoiler, can recommend the place where I got mine. I got a stock spoiler not EvoX spoiler. Also consider adding window visors as well.

    Its been sometime since I updated on my experience with Civic 1.5T. The clock is closing on 7,000km now Fuel Economy (lets get it out of the way) Its averaging around 8kmpl in Colombo during heavy traffic (with rain these days). But on average it varies between 8kmpl - 9kmpl Did a trip to Anuradhapura with an overall efficiency of 15.1kmpl over 530km. Going towards A'pura car averaged about 16.5kmpl. Regular up and down trips to Ingiriya averages around 13kmpl on 120 route > Expressway Kahathuduwa to Gelanigama > Panadura - Rathnapura Road to Ingiriya 2nd Service The car indicated I had to do my service by 4,700km but ended up doing the second service after the A'pura trip around 4,900km. This was the 1st oil change of the car and the agent used Mobil 5w30 oil. I did notice a slight increase in fuel efficiency after the service (may be its nothing to do with the service). Acceleration Out of curiosity tried timed accelerations 0 - 100 kmph and cruising at 60 - 160kmph on sports mode 0-100 was just above 8 secs without spooling turbo at the start and was just above 7 secs with spooling turbo at the start. 60-160 was 17 seconds (RPM hit a max of 4,900 ie the car accelerated at peak torque but did not hit the peak BHP at 5,500 rpm) Ceramic Coating Ceramic coating is holding well thus far. Couple of days earlier noticed couple of small scratch marks on the bonnet and on rear door. non of those have penetrated to the paint. According to the supplier it is recommended to have a followup on the coating every 2 months but I dont think it needs that stringent upkeep. But planning on doing a checkup every 5-6 months.

    Honda Civic 2018

    My Civic is a 1.5 turbo brand new import from the agent. my instructions say to use minimum 91oct but the agents suggests me to use 95Oct to be on the safe side. This is the exact point I asked the question on long term effect of using fuel available here (even 95 euro4) on UK engines designed to operate to meet Euro6 emission standards.

    Honda Civic 2018

    The Honda turbo engines are designed to operate on RON91. but I am raising this out of curiosity in this tread as all the UK imports are designed to run on Euro6 standard fuel. Does anyone know the long term impact of using Euro4 fuel on these engines?
