    Some Concerns?

    Not really. There have been at least three recalls on vehicles equipped with the Honda DCT around 2014. So the reliability issues are not purely due to the driving style. True, driving in Sri Lanka's stop and go traffic puts a unnecessary strain on the transmission so people have suggested driving on the first or second gear instead of D to prevent the transmission from shifting back and forth all the time. This apparently is a workaround.
  2. That's the Yaris GRMN with a factory strut brace (you have to look closely to see it - especially since it's black). It's just not out in the open. The strut towers are under those plastic weather shields and will have to be taken out to install the brace. But I'm pretty sure it's just a regular one-piece, non-adjustable brace under there that mounts onto the strut bolts.

    Side Mirror Theft Toyota Premio,Ward Place

    Police being lazy is not an issue with the dashcam. The type of dashcam I suggested is one that has parking more where you get a notification to your phone. So there's a chance you can get to your car before the thief snatches something off the car or even breaks in.

    Side Mirror Theft Toyota Premio,Ward Place

    Sorry to hear about the incident. This might be a long shot when compared to installing a more sensitive alarm system, but have you considered installing a dashcam with parking mode and motion/impact triggered notifications to your phone? Something like the Blackvue DR750S-2CH costs in excess of about 50,000 LKR for just the cameras without the auxiliary power supply equipment, so I understand it might not be realistic.
  5. You can just get a strut brace which is the one installed in the engine bay between the shock absorber towers. The bottom flexes a lot less than thr top of the car because the existing suspension already provides more rigidity. And no, you don't have to drill anything. You can fbolt on to your suspension mount (same top bolts on the shock absorber) .
  6. Does your car have alloy wheels? If not, I say get a good set of lightweight alloy wheels. Although switching to alloys will not give you significantly noticeable better handling, steel wheels are heavier and cause more strain on the suspension system whereas alloys have far less unsprung weight that contribute to lower inertia on the suspension. You might want to look into upsizing and going for wider rims as the stock skinny tyres on the stock rims aren't that great for handling. If you have alloys already, I say go with coilovers next. It's one of the mods that transforms the look/stance and handling of your car completely and you'll notice it every time you drive the car and even look at it! The downside to coilovers is that you might find it a bit inconvenient to be driving on rough roads, onto your driveway etc. The trick is to get adjustable ones so that you can find best height.

    lol That is a Lancer TREDIA with a Corolla 110 face. The name is apparently derived from "Three Diamonds".

    Corolla 121 - Engine Oil Issue

    Agree with others that it might be engine wear. Get a compression test done first. That will tell you if the engine is worn out (under compression). Depending on the result, you will have to do an full or partial engine overhaul.

    Lancer Evo X final edition

    Just seeing this thread! 😮 Thanks for tagging me @Crosswind! Isn't that a beauty! In white too! 😍 The only thing I'm seeing that's not original is the stereo and the bezel around it. That is aftermarket. You can see by how bad the edges are lined up with the rest of the dashboard. But hey, who's going to be listening to music when you're driving one of these. 😀 I agree with iRage about the price. It's a one of a kind car, there were only a limited number of cars made with that trim, so it has it's own uniqueness. If I had the money, I wouldn't think twice about getting one to be honest. ☺️ I recently saw the very last Final Edition Evo for the Australian market advertised on one of the classifieds sites and it was up for 90,000 AUD. That's like twice the price for just getting the very last Evo X to roll of the line. The regular Evo X 2014 Evo X goes for around 40,000 AUD and the Final Edition (except the aforementioned one) goes for around 50,000. SO a bit of a gap there. The Final Edition Evo never came with Enkei wheels. Came only with the BBS wheels with the gold BBS logo on the centre cap. The regular Evo with BBS has a silver BBS logo on the centre cap. The rims are also of a darker "shadow chrome" colour whereas the regular Evo has the brushed aluminium sort of finish. I personally love love love the BBS wheels over the Enkeis. Edit: Also, The Final Edition never came with the SST according to my knowledge. It was only offered as manual in all markets.

    What are the micro panda's Faults ?

    Threads merged. Thanks for pointing out @kusumsiri! Also, I'm not sure who the @Admin user is, but I don't think an active member or even a moderator. So you can tag either MADZ, Crosswind, iRage, Rumesh88, Pericles, Supra_Natural or myself to let us know. 🙂Not sure if there's anyone else in the moderator group, but probably not active even if they were.

    1979 Lancer A72 Restoration

    Thanks! Appreciate it. I guess the RalliArt craze was always there. I remember buying sticker rolls off Daley road and cutting the stickers off myself. Teenage times. 😆

    Project A72V

    Yep, deepening the grooves also works, but I found that the mechanism sometimes slips and disconnects. This happens especially if you have the brake pedal depressed while pulling the parking brake. As for your question, the adjuster mechanism on the Box doesn't fit the A72. It's a totally different (and better) design. So you will have to swap the entire assembly out with the brake dial plate.
