    Guess who bought a Lancer EX

    Thats great.. I too should get it done cuz my car is parked near a treeline at the office and sometimes dead leaves get stuck inside the gaps between viper arms and the panel...

    Wow, Thanks for the detailed info machang, is viper deck panel removing and cleaning a part of the service or you just had it done additionally?

    Yes, i too have seen them wash the engine bay with pressure guns, was wondering why they are doing it like that especially when they being the agent. Anyways whats the cost of getting the EX serviced with them?

    Just took couple of photos, the upper most sound proofing is not there, but the black heat shied lining is available. I just observed, why are those wires kept exposed like that? is it the same with your car as well @Hyaenidae? Also appreciate if you guys could suggest a good and easy product to clean that engine bay..

    I too thought about it, engine looks like a skeleton without skin when there is no cover. Most common engine cover I've seen is the one shown below, But this cover cannot be used with my engine it seems. I believe the matching cover is the one shown below, Correct me if I'm wrong.

    When I was searching for an EX I contacted one seller who had a 2014 EX for sale which was a 1.6 one. When I enquired about the fuel consumption, he told me the car does about 6-7 in Colombo. That's why I thought generally 1.6 cats consumes more fuel. Anyways I was bit surprised about his claim as previous generation CS3 with an equal capacity does very well one fuel. I just did my first service, used Valvoline 10W30 as recommended by the agent. Previous owner too had used the same oil throughout.

    Hey that’s good for a 1.6. Thought it does about 6-7 in heavy traffic.

    Car does about 12 in the morning, from home to office. That’s moderate traffic. In the evening, the return journey it’s about 10ish, that’s under heavy traffic. This is a 1.5L.

    Nice observation, it was at low level when I took the photo. Did a full coolant flush and now it’s at the correct level 😊.

    Great Stuff bro! She looks pretty damn stunning now. And kudos for the DYI man. And in just 2 hours?? are you effin kidding me?? Just wow!!! Im not a fan of pasting stickers, so its a no no from me. If you are going to do so, might as well find some Brembo, Recaro and BBS stickers and paste them too. About the rear, May i suggest you raise the rear a bit rather than rolling up the arches. That way car will have that looking down in anger stance (Which I like). Dont know how that will affect the improved handling though. Just a suggestion. Anyways, its super cool you did this. Really happy to see the end result. Do keep us posted of new improvements/changes. Cheers!

    Lancer EX is one of the best bets you have in your budget. When I was looking to buy a one a 2014 EX went for 4 million. I’ve just started to use this car and I must say, it’s wonderful. Car is very spacious, has good ground clearance and has good power too. Mine having a 1500cc motor and it’s a pleasure to drive. I’m saying this after switching from a manual Lancer. Since you are in the market for a new car, just go and take a one of those cars that are for sale for a test drive. Then you can understand for yourself. As for petrol consumption, it does about 10 in Colombo and about 12 in areas like kalutara panadura. Heard that 1600cc one does about 6-7 in Colombo.
