  1. Hi eyepea I travel quite often at night (7PM to 10PM) and early morning (3AM to 6:AM) on the Puttalam-Anuradhapura road. Elephants are not often on the road but generally they can be seen somewhere between the 7km to about the 10km posts before Karuwalagswewa, and again between Thabbowa tank and before Saliyawewa. I have observed that these elephants are rather shy and I have had no issues. They are either on the side of the road or beyond the electric fences. By and large I avoid travelling between 10pm and 3am, not so some much because of elephants but because of reckless bus drivers. I don't advice speeding in these areas (clearly road marked as elephant crossing areas) because should you suddenly encounter a lone bull or a herd, you may end up hitting them. I travel at a speed where I could easily control the vehicle in case of an emergency. Ekendra
  2. Does any other supplier provide a MOBILE services? I am particularly referring to Amaron and Panasonic 5 year warranty batteries. Thanks
  3. Very soon I will need to change my tyres on my Hyundai Tucson. The original tyres are Kumho and have given me 43,000 km so far and I guess I can do another 2000 km without any issues. I have the option of choosing one of the following brands; Kumho - 100 Hangkook - 76 GT - 65 Nexen - 62 GT and Nexen are the cheapest, though Hangkook which is 24% cheaper is also a good option. If any members have experiences with these brands, will appreciate your views please. Thank you
  4. Is there a special format for the NO OBJECTIONS letter? Is it just OK to say; "This is to certify that I Mr. YYY of yyyyy holder of NIC 5555555555 am the owner of vehicle XX-XX YYYY and I have no objections to the transfer of the said vehicle to Mr. xxxx of xxxxx holder of NIC 6666666666?"
  5. Does anyone know if SNOW FOAM http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washing-and-drying/super-snow-foam-5-litre/prod_370.html is available to retail customers in Sri Lanka. Kleenpark uses it but it is not for sale.
  6. I have read that after-market Electronic Tuning Sustems, when fitted to Diesel CRDi vehicle improves performance and efficiency. Please see http://www.tdc-technologies.com/ and http://www.dieselexpress.co.uk/ They are some of the establishments that offer Digital Tuning Systems at prices varying from GBP 90 to GBP 500!!! Is there anyone who may have used these tuning boxes in Sri Lanka that fit between the ECU and Fuel Injection System? If so may I have (only) their views please? Thank you
  7. Try http://www.tnavi.lk/ The address was given as Elibank Road... last Sunday's (15th Jan) HitAds
  8. Not quite what I was looking for at ODM. Very crude in my view (at least what was shown to me) . Will try 4x4M on Saturday. I have seen several Prado's with fairly high quality workmanship receiver hitches. Maybe direct imports!! Thank you for your response.

    4X4

    I am searching for a reliable place where I can purchase and fit a quality Tow Hitch Receiver for a Toyota Landcrusier Prado. Any information will be helpful.
  10. Does this mean that every time you disconnect the battery, your navi will have to be re-set and you have to fork-out 1500/-??
  11. Hi Jerome, I was talking to a guy who has considerable experience with 4X4 vehicles and he suggested that I use Auto Diesel fuel (Cetane of 48) with a regular treatment of Wurth Diesel Additive. He seems very confident that this combination would suffice. I have a 90 litre tank and he suggests that I fill up when the tank is half empty and add 100 ml of Wurth Diesel Additive each time I fill the tank with diesel. I presently use Super Diesel. Would you like to comment? Thank you - Ekendra
  12. Hi Jerome, I have checked the Wurth UK website and I note that they do not have an injector cleaner for Diesel. What would you suggest for Diesel injectors? Regards Ekendra
  13. Hi The Stig. Yes, the 2nd Start button is available on Auto trans vehicles to start in 2nd gear in muddy conditions thus avoiding wheel spin. I guess you are right. I will visit the agents and see what can be done. Thank you for your response.
  14. The 2nd Start button on my Prado has stopped working. When the button is depressed the dash board indicator does not light up and I do not think that the 2nd start is engaged. Does anyone know where I can get this repaired apart at the agents?
  15. According to the user manual, the recommended fuel type for the 1KZ-TE engine is "Diesel fuel, cetane number 48 or higher" The specs given by CeyPetco for AUTO diesel is "Cetane number minimum 48". http://www.ceypetco.gov.lk/Products_and_Services.htm#11 The question is, how accurate is this figure and if it is why pay more for Super Diesel. Will appreciate an EXPERT opinion please. Thank you
  16. Would an owner of a Toyota Landcruiser Prado 1997 (Diesel/Auto) tell me if Rear Diff Lock is standard or if LSD is standard. Thanks
  17. Many thanks. Hope I will be lucky tomorrow!!
  18. Who should I talk to? Wonder why it is not possible to get the same-day service?
  19. Thanks. I will go there on Friday and see what can be done. Who should I talk to? Wonder why it is not possible to get the same-day service?
  20. I wonder why it should take as long as one month?
  21. What is the usual time to obtain new registration papers for a vehicle with a "Duplicate" document as opposed to one with an "original" document?
  22. Thank you all for your invaluable advice. How can I verify the colour temperature of my unit?
  23. Thank you CyRax. Greatly appreciate your response. If possible I shall be obliged if you can let me have the address/contact details of Deniyaya Motors to 0777736701.
  24. Thanks guys for your responses. I can see a pair of Promota V61 HID Standard Balasts fitted. Not sure how many Kelvins these lights are but I was able to get the lights adjusted. I don't think that the reflectors are Xenon types. I need to find a place that can help me out. If possible text details to 0777736701. Thanks
