    R18 Tyres

    Hi Guys, Was wondering if any of you knew where to source R18 tyres from? Only place I know of is Autodrome - Bridgestone Potenza's 245/45R18s, which cost Rs. 57,500 each. This is what I've got at the moment, but the problem is the tyres are a bit too big for the car and was hoping to to go down to 235/35R18s if possible. Anyway if any of you know a good place which import performance tyres let me know! Cheers

    Ecu Remap

    Thanks Don, your suggestion (followed by a bit of research) made me realise I should probably be looking at the basics a bit more before I get the remap. I've never had the injectors cleaned and there is probably quite a bit of carbon build up (Subaru's are notorious for this) so maybe after a full clean out and an octane booster I'll get that extra performance I'm looking for in the lower range.

    Ecu Remap

    Thanks guys, actually had to postpone the remap cause I needed to get some work done on the exhaust and thought it would be best to leave the remap for last once all changes are finalised. Zakie Ismail is doing the remap, heard all good things about the guy and I've been very impressed with the work he's done on my car till now. Hear your point about the longevity of the engine components, mileage is in the high 70s and certainly prefer to be safe than sorry. Like Don mentioned it depends very much on the person doing the remap, and as long as you don't go for extreme power gains I believe engine longevity could even be increased resulting from improved synchronization between air/fuel delivery and ignition. Additionally, a remap would get more out of simpler mods like high performance air filters, fuel pumps and exhaust upgrades. Given that we cant get anything better than 95 octane petrol here, most of the remaps here are quite conservative which don't really transform into massive power gains and therefore limit the additional strain placed on engine components. Anyway that's my take on it. Got a bug to get it done, but still on the fence as to whether I should!

    Ecu Remap

    Hey guys I tried searching for this topic on the forums but couldn't really find anything. Planning on getting the ECU remapped on my car primarily to improve the low end pick up, till the turbo kicks in. Did a bit of research online and from what I gather the main drawback is that the vehicle will require a bit more attention with shorter service periods to cope with the added stress on the mechanical components following the remap. Anyway just wanted to check if anyone has had a bad experience following a remap over here? Planing on getting it done tomorrow so any tips before then would be great! Cheers

    The HitAd last Sunday had around 15 F10 5 Series' for sale. Ranging from 11-12.5 mil. There's going to be a shit load of 5 series running around Colombo, fits in well with the UDA's beautification project!

    Subaru Legacy 4Th Gen. 2004-2009

    Thanks, the first accident was a motor bike and the second was onto a barrier. Senok did both repairs, replaced a couple of panels but no structural or mechanical repairs. Sacha has put a straight through exhaust which is why it sounds like a bomb is going off every time the pistons move, and the paint was never cut and polished after the accident in Dec. Darin's fixing the stock exhaust back in, and its going to get a polish straight after!

    What have you heard? Got the green light from both Senok and BRJW - I am aware of the accidents but was under the impression it was nothing major (mechanically).

    Thanks guys, Senok confirmed that there was no mechanical damage to the car from the accident - purely cosmetic. Should be getting her next week. 4age which Dimitri are you referring to? The rims are still gold, however have been coated in silver paint. Prefer it in silver actually.

    Citroen Ds3 Sports In Sl.

    Man it's pretty disheartening that a hot hatch priced to target young execs barely out of uni costs 12 mil in SL! The current duty structure and exchange rate which I believe is going to be with us for a while will ensure that cars like these remain exotics for a long time. Its a good thing importers like BRJW are gutsy enough to take the risk and bring them down - gives more people a chance to own them later down the line at least.

    Not much chance of Exxon discovering anything great on hydrogen cells if their scientists spend most of their days on car forums talking about a permit 5 series which they bought.

    Man this guy sure knows how to take the prestige away from owning a new 5! So much for distinguished elegance. Hopefully just another wannabe hiding behind his keyboard.

    Help Needed On Hybrids

    I've been using a Civic hybrid for the last couple of weeks. Drove it like I usually do (gear changes around 3-3.5k revs) and it was doing only 8.5 km/l (as per the indicator in the speedometer). Been told I'm not the slowest driver so thought I'll try conservative driving (get the gear to change around 2K revs - painful!) and it seems to be doing around 10.5 km/l. Colombo driving only though. Still pretty dismal for a car that claims to be fuel efficient. Must say though the pick up isn't too bad for a hybrid. Was quite surprised.
