    maharagama vs C-Y_I_C- hospital

    Someone I know of needs to get radiotherapy done for prostrate cancer and he has been advised by one oncologist that both maharagama and the private are the same but the difference is that in private hospital you dont have waiting times However others have warned about Maharagama saying that they use substandard drugs due to massive corruption and they are not that great and to go private if you want to get treated correctly and recommended c******o hospital saying that they have the best equipment,I wonder if anyone can share their views

    suggestions to buy used car below 7 lakh

    you can get Toyots DX wagons,Lancer Box or Lancer C12/11,Tube light etc they are good cars and come with AC but getting 10-12kml is doubtful in city you might get 12 kms in long trips thats all the spare parts availability is very good for them and very hardy cars too

    Nissan March K10 2-Door Modifications

    yes you can convert to power steering mate and I do know someone who could do it,but do you really need power steering for such a small hatchback? also keep in mind that conversions are costly affairs

    Nissan March K10 2-Door Modifications

    rather than just modifying a car and molesting it why not bring in it o good shape just like how it left the showroom,check all the ancilliaries and do good maintenance then when those are in order maybe you can tint the car a bit change the rubber mats if you want to get alloys and new pedal covers etc but pls do try to keep it in original condition

    What happened to Amila tyre shop

    I was suprised to find that Amila tyre shop is no more at Dehiwela and a car sale is there in that location,any idea why they closed up like that I have been a regular there some years back but lately noticed the service levels not that good ,so switched to Ravindras down the road only issue is that its always over crowded and parking is not easy at all recently found another place in Allen Avenue and they seem quite good but since its new too early to say,there is also another tyre shop near Keells in Hill Street but never been there
