  1. Can you not reduce the damage done by the salt water if you immediately wash the undercarriage with fresh water thoroughly? Also, the under carriage coating does not prevent salt water penetration up to some point? Saw a video some time back where some vehicles get caught to mild sea tide which comes on to main road, somewhere along Galle road.
  2. Damn, Anyone able to catch the number of that vehicle? Ha ha, definitely will end up for sale very soon.
  3. Well not all, a office chap sold his 2013 Prius for peanuts a month back with less than 80k mileage. He got it personally through auction so mileage is not tampered. There may be options if you take time to look. And cab services hunt down the Prius cz its reliable and economical and relatively trouble free car.
  4. Could try a 2013/2014 ish Prius. Goes well below 4M now so you will have spare money if the battery pack needs any attention. Not hard to sell either.
  5. Thanks, this is Hot wheels KITT 1/18, limited ed.
  6. Did some shooting of few of my models out of boredom. Just phone captures so please mind the lightning and white background. The actual models look much better, dont think im doing justice here.
  7. May be what you saw was modded with the same type of offroad bumper ...
  8. 😋 I digg the mean stance of the cruiser modified or not. In SL context we dont get much other options to compete with this apart from the Y62 Patrol which is extremely rare.
  9. Thanks guys for the comments and tempting images. Finding a good diesel with low mileage would definitely be a challenge, but for these engines 100k kms would be just the break in period. And though not so concerned about fuel as the deciding factor here, petrol ones would be so thirsty probably would return may be 5kmpl in city where diesel ones does around 7kmpl ish. The new face lift diesels are out of reach by any means now. Yes, I have seen lot of conversions done with various levels of quality ranging from 3/4 laks to 1mil +. And interior upgrades with massive touch screen audios etc. This would definitely not be a bling or shiny princess, I am eyeing on the Vogue Industries Cruiser here, that front bumper is dope. and the 33 or 35 tires. probably skip the hood rack. And with a frosted red wrap. I know red is an unusual color for a cruiser, but would look dope. Any idea about the so called Bruno Cross edition here with absurd asking prices? Is it similer to the Sahara model?
  10. Hi @Kavvz, The deciding factor is not the fuel here. Being a V8, obviously im not expecting 10KMPL from this. The diesel ZX is the fully kitted one but the pre face lift, petrol one is the newer facelift. so thats where I struggled. And by the looks of it and as @iRage mentioned, diesel model holds its value comparatively better than the petrol. Also as a user of a diesel SUV currently, I love the low end torque. I will not be doing any towing or off roading with this, but being driving SUV's for the past decade, its defiantly hard to settle for a car of any sort at this point. And cruiser is one of the few vehicles which holds up its value relatively better compared to other main stream SUV's in the similer price range. Of course its ancient compared to the latest kit offered by the likes of Range Rovers and BMW etc..., but i can live with that given the peace of mind.
  11. Vehicles with a duplicate CR demands a low market value, so if its a genuine duplicate CR and can be verified as other members stated and also the vehicle is in good condition , you could grab a good bargain. Faced a similar situation long back where lost the original book of a Chevrolet Cruise and sold it off well over 200k of market price at that time as no one wanted to buy it sadly, though we took a genuine duplicate CR for it.
  12. Thanks for the reply iRage, I dont think we have any 3UR cruisers here in SL apart from the few LX570's around. Yes, the 1VD would be ideal as I will be doing some travelling around with 5+ members, so may be both economical and engaging than a 1UR. Im looking at a cruiser as a long term vehicle to keep rather than to change in few years, so the added reliability is a major factor here. I know there are plenty of offerings from like Merc, BMW, Audi on same or lesser price brackets and newer models but long term reliability is a key concern here too.
  13. Dear experts, Im looking in to buying a 202 and I have read the past posts on this forum but I don't think it really answers the questions I have. With my current budget( approx 24~25 Mil) I have 2 options, Opt 1 - 2013 - 2015 Land cruiser 202 ZX Fully loaded Diesel model. Air sus / Cool box etc ... whole 9 yards Opt 2 - 2016 Land cruiser 202 ( New face lifted version) AX semi option Petrol model Diesel ZX is the pre face lift version but the fully kitted ZX. The newer model is tempting and I like the exterior design than the 2014 / 2015 model year. But being a Petrol, I will have big fuel bills. Is it worth to go for the newer model petrol or stick to the ZX with options. Is there a significant difference in mechanical components of the newer 2016+ models compared to previous model? Experts and reviews suggest both petrol and diesels engines are reliable but any advantage of owning a diesel against the petrol? The local market is held high for the diesel variant thus far. Not so concerned about the fuel here, but what about the other factors in play here relevant to local conditions / maintenance etc ... Any idea and suggestions from actual users, I'd love to hear your take on the car.
  14. I would not buy a Korean of that vintage. Rexton / Hyundai / Kia was so much better after 2008 onwards revisions.
