  1. Thanks a lot, hope the place is reasonable... Just got the prices for Spare parts from Aruna Motors and Ajantha Motors (Panchikawatte). Compared the prices with the list given by Kia Motors, 50% cheaper at Aruna Motors.

  3. Between 1.45m - 1.8m I bought my Picanto for 1.5m,
  4. It happened again yesterday twice. In the morning stopped the car for traffic lights. When moving forward changed to 2nd gear and acceleratored, felt like engine is not picking up. changed to 1st, moved slowly, then changed to 2nd, and 3rd didn't move. Had to wait for a while and changed to 2nd gear and moved very slowly. On the 4th gear picked up like nothing happened. In the evening,on my way home, had to break suddenly as a Tuk Tuk guy turned to the main road like a killer. I saw the engine indicator popped up (engine was running) but did not pick up the car. Tried 1st gear, did not pick up, 2nd slowly moved, 3rd didn't pick up... When it starts moving slowly changed to 4th gear, picked up and changed to 3rd again didn't pick up. It worked on 2nd and 4th gear. Anyway, I'm taking the car to Kia Motors (Peliyagoda) on this Friday.
  5. Good, nearly 12-13kmpl (in Colombo with AC)
  6. Hi, When I was driving in the night (both headlights and A/C on) I had to break suddenly. The engine got stopped but didn't have any problem when starting again. I forgot to off my headlights and AC when starting the car. Then I noticed my car is not picking up, tried 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear but didn't pick up. I did drive nearly 1km slowly then everything back to normal. This happened two days back but now seems ok. I checked my Accelerator cable and noticed that the cable has become thin from the pedal side. Any guess? Problem with my cable? or gear box? Anyway I'm planning to replace my accelerator cable.
  7. I have a doubt regarding the millage as a 13 years old car done only 90k? Should be altered the meter. Guys, can you pls recommend a place to buy a good T-Belt for my Kia Picanto 2005 near Colombo? I also need to replace my Accelerator cable and Fan belt as well. Pls let me know a good place to do all at once. Should be within Colombo. Hope Kia Motors at Peliyagoda is expensive (both spare parts and service).
  8. Hi Guys, I have a Kia Picanto EX 2005 car (Bought recently). It has done 92000km as of now. I asked the previous owner regarding the T-belt change but he said never changed. Is it a good time to change the T-Belt of my car? or need to wait until it reaches 100k?
  9. How To Restore Your Headlights

    Guys, I know that this post is little old but I have some doubts. I'm planning to restore my headlights this week. Please correct me if I'm wrong. 1st step: Sand the Headlight cover using wet 1000 grit, 1500 grit finally 2000 grit sanding papers. Hope I can use Brasso with Sanding paper??? 2nd step: Wash the headlight 3rd Step: Apply rubbing compound, please suggest me a good rubbing compound which can easily purchase? 4th step: Apply clear coat three times. Should I do this on the same day or need one day to get the headlight dry? Hope TOA Clear Coat spray is fine. Irosh
  10. Hi Guys, Well, first I said seems good, but seems not very good. There is a slight different but not as expected. Guys please suggest me a good H4 Head Light bulb. The height of the bulb should be similar to H4 Halogen. And there is a very limited space in the housing (back) so difficult to fix a bulb with Heat sink. Help....
  11. Guys, bought GE Megalight Ultra 120 yesterday. Each Rs 1250. Seems good.
  12. Checked, its H4 55W Halogen bulb (made in Germany). I went to Auto Pal and Pet#o, they said, can't install H4 LED bulbs due to less space. But they said can modify the headlight cup accordingly. Then I found a guy n ######.lk (in Negambo) selling OSRAM H4 Night Breaker Unlimited bulbs. The cost is Rs. 5500 with 3 months warranty. Pls advise me on this as I have never replaced headlight bulbs before. Are there any cheap bulbs in the market with same performance? And, are there any shops near Colombo selling OSRAM H4 bulbs?
  13. A place to buy Kia Picanto (2005) Spare Parts?

    Thanks a lot.
  14. You used 3M glass polishing compound to remove wiper scratches? did it work well?
  15. Sorry bro, I'm not good in car stuff. Don't know whether its HID or filament. I have heard about Osram LED bulbs. Any idea? I will post a pic of my headlight later today.
