  1. Best Car for 3 million.

    The fuel eco depends on how you drive.If 10kmpl is fine(i guess in the city),get an es or an axela.Because both of them would do just about 9kmpl,and i guess 1kmpl difference is not a problem for a guy who wants to buy a 3mil car.Better to have some models test driven.Also the corolla 121 meets your expectations,but it is overpriced and most of the cars are abused.
  2. Honda Grace Gearbox question

    I don't think so.I know a guy,probably not a friend,who abuses his GP5.High revs are nothing for him and even does drifting.For about 2 years he has been doing this type of abusing and still the car is fine.I dunno maybe in sometime he'll get both of his balls busted by an accident.
  3. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    Now my mind is between FD1 and FD4.???Fd4 less options.Fd1 less economy.I only drive the car on weekends,therefore my dad is the one who does 90% of driving.We do only about 500-600kms per month.But mostly its dad who fills up the tank.I dunno i'm confused.
  4. Honda Grace Gearbox question

    I think the low pulling power is just the nature of the car.I've driven a grace for about 3-4kms including hills,stretches and bends.It was also a new car(less than 5000km done).During low speeds,u need to push the pedal hard,but still the engine hesitates to gain power.What I think is the honda's new sport hybrid system is not as smooth as the previous ima system,which was much less complicated.But when the engine is in high revs thats a whole another story.pretty quick.But recently the owner of that grace told me he notices strange noises(he used an insight for about 5 years doing about 150k kms without any issue).Better to get ur car inspected
  5. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    Fd4 is kinda base version.Fd3 got more options than the fd4.Fd4 even got those black coloured inner door handles,which gives a more plasticy look.But still the fd4's interior looks well put together than the Ex.
  6. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    Well i think the mazda 3 1st gen got all the bells and whistles enough to compete with the next-gen Axio.Only 2 things that axio got over the mazda are the push start and that safty sense c. Mazda also got the bose audio system in some higher end models.But the interior space keeps me dragging away from it.
  7. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    Finally made up my mind for the FD4.bit easier to find a one with low mileage for less than 4mil.also heard that hondas are pretty solid and reliable. Anyway i want to know about these little things.i know the Fd1 have them. -does the fd4 has reading/map lights? -and tweeters on the dashboard?
  8. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    141-common,less power,lacks options
  9. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    OMG the driving!!!!and the driver repeats the fact that it is bumpy.man i wonder how a corolla would handle on the same road??.Anyway I gonna focus on the fd4.Thanks for the video.I really enjoyed watching the brutal drive
  10. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    Oh damn!!!!the engine noise of the lancer????.Man I would be deafened if I race it to nuwara eliya????.Now I'm a bit leaning towards fd4.
  11. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    Again I'm confused.???.Usually I do less than 1000km per month and 90% are based on outstation,outstation means places like Jaffna,Matara,Anuradhapura etc..So lancer has better economy,suspension and as a minus point an unrefined ride.I dunno.I'm gonna find and test them both in order to make a better decision.
  12. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    Thanks bro.This type of answer is what I expected.So it seems like the EX ticks all the boxes.So does the lancer soaks up the bumps and handles the pot holes pretty well??one of my friend called and told me that another friend of him got an EX recently.I will go and drive it and share my opinion asap. The problem I dumped mazda is the lack of leg space and ground clearance.Anyway a I love the BL one,but its extremely rare.
  13. Lancer EX vs Civic FD4

    I read the bratt thread.thanks for the other ones.
  14. Hello guys, Yeah I have been planning to buy a car for about 3 years,but gave first place to family expenses and higher education.Finally I decided to move on during the next few months to a new ride.My good old 121 is still serving me without letting me down but I think I had her enough(5+ yrs). Finally I narrowed down my search list to these two babes,the Ex and Fd4 as both of them are in the reachable price bracket.Previously had the idea for a 3rd gen prius but it is useless as I only do less than 1000kms per month.So my requirements are these. 1.Should be comfortable on long journeys.I might have to travel to places like Jaffna and Matara once or twice in a month. 2.Stability in speeds over 100 as I had to maintain such a speed speacially when travelling to jaffna. 3.Interior space both front and rear. 4.Fuel economy is not a main priority.I have an extreme light foot most of the times??.But if someone can give exact fuel figures I would be glad. 5.Should have a bit of soul in it???.A bit of handling and oomph Yet to drive both of them as they are very rare in our area.The problems that I have are 1.Does the Ex feels underpowered due to its 1500cc engine and 1200+kg weight?Also the 1600cc variant is rare and exceeds my budget. 2.I've heard the Fd series is not comfortable on long journeys and has stiffer suspension.Is it true?If someone who had driven both the fd4 and 121 can give me an advice that would be much valuable. I dumped the Axio because everyone has it and handles worse than the 121.Allion and Premio,again overpriced and common.But I would love to own a 240 series Allion on a Premio with 1800cc,but rarity and 100k+ kms milege keeps myself away. So i hope you guys will help me to make a good decision.Also any other choices are welcome.Thanks
