    Upgrade to Vitz

    You can buy a F grade, 2015 or 2016 Fuel consumption is like 13kmpl , 92oc It's not exactly an upgrade, both are equally underpowered Vitz may look a bit better and be a bit more comfortable The difference is the size and cargo area 2nd row seating is cramped in the vitz in comparision The engine is so noisy u ll go crawling back to the wagon r, and the vibration will make you think it's an 80s townace, I'm sure the highest grade of wagon r will be far more refined than this.

      Every time I hear the new Vitz It feels like something has come loose of the engine

      Yea something big, like the big ends or a con rod, and the vibration, a 4d56 /4m41 engine in their last iteration is smoother than this, fancy bits aside being an old school engine design from like 30 years ago. When it revs it sounds like an evo engine, then u get happy and then when u look at the gauges you just zoomed from 40 to 50kmph, lol with all that finesse.

      It's one of the worst cars to own if you are a motorhead,

    Bump of rear wheels

    Does this mean they’ve sorta cut the panels and fixed windows to it? Meaning van spec what is the apparent difference in cargo capability besides the loading capacity?

    Does Collision warning system brake ?

    It brakes with varying force based on the magnitude of the impending collision, may may not have a warning buzzer Top pic Top right - Autoheadlight dimming Bottom right - lane departure warning Bottom left - anti collision system / emergency brake bottom pic air recirculation top probably pollen filter / air purifier bottom

    What does this button do?

    Yea this is the idle, but I've never seen an option to lock it in auto, rather slick This must be a larger engine isn't it?

    What does this button do?

    Yes and this would function on only a colder climate, definitely not Colombo, probably nuwara eliya, that's how it worked in Toyota anyway
  9. The double cabs that came under L* numbers are commonly converted to dual purpose through dmt, no change in number Just a change in the CR category , maybe the same procedure applies to you, better go inquire from them They charge you though

    What does this button do?

    Power heater, for cold starts, revs the engine to quickly warm up, common on uk spec
  11. If anyone has a used set of Mitsubishi OEM alloys for sale of the attached pattern pls let me know

    Dash Cam recommendations (2019)

    A popular sales website sold them in 2017, now the site is also stagnant. Just get a generic one with a capacitor, they run for ages, save your money spend it on the car

    WHICH octane for VITZ?

    Not exactly the same car, ended up getting the money and immediately purchasing a personal import car, unreg and genuine mileage with jevic/ auction docs etc from a colleague , same colour and a bit higher mileage though. And thanks!
