  1. Dear AL Team, Can you guys using Hondas (Specially the FD series) recommend a good place that does honda maintenance (mechanical repairs)? Need to change the Shocks and lower torque mount as well as check the rear wheel bearings. Agent quotes too expensive. Thanks in advance.

    Jbl Audio

    Anybody know a good place to get a set of JBL speaker system installed? Car is a starlet ep91 so a couple of speakers at the front and a small sub will be enough? Thanks.
  3. Thought I should add my experience since I have been using a starlet EP91 which my dad bought for me and its been close to 6 years now. Its a 1997 AT EP91 and has run close to 150k kms. Had no any major repairs since I got it. I usually do the service every 3.5-4k kms and tune up once a year from toyota. I have driven some Indian small cars (Maruti and TATA Hatch(not nano)) and i can tell you its way better than a brand new one of those two in terms of ease of driving, ride and comfort. Fuel consumption is around 12 or 13kmpl around cmb ( just a rough figure) but it does close to 17kmpl on the hgway. The only problems are that it gives some rattling noises on a bumpy road ( probably from plastics in the dash) and the space at the back is not enough if you push the front seats a little more to the back but i think thats common to all hatches. If you are looking for a car with comfortable space for 4 or 5 adults then better to go for a 110 I think and IMO better to go for a japanese.

    Good Place For Engine Tuneup

    I read most of them and one thing is that they are quite old posts. Most say go to the agents and thats in Wattala. So that's why i am looking for a good spot around colombo. Is Lal Alawatta good? how much will it cost?
  10. Dear experts, I am planning on doing an Engine tune up and spark plug replacement this weekend for my Starlet EP91 ( fuel consumption too high). Please suggest good places I can get it done. Name of place, location and if possible how much it will cost me generally. Thanks.
  11. My brother is planning to buy a new european car and he has test driven both 5 series. He says A6 interior is better and has his mind on the A6 I think. I dont know about the prices but since both are of same class, I think its going to cost about same money as a new 5 series . I seen that most of Al senior members have European cars and know much about these two cars. I need the following info about these two cars and your ideas on which is best to buy. 1. Any known issues with the F10 5 series. (520d) 2. Running costs of two models. 3. Agent's after sales support 4. Anything else we should consider Thanx in advance.
