  1. For me it's always sad to see a family car go. Hope your next ride will be as good, whenever it will come.
  2. De-ricing a car! Now that's something I'd like to hear (and maybe have a go at one day...) Btw @cessna1525 I can't see the pic of your car. Is it an issue on my end?
  3. As the others have said, an older 7 Series is not the easiest car to own and maintain, more so as your first vehicle. Parts are going to be rare and will most probably need to be shipped from abroad. You could be looking at wasting considerable time at garages if you get particularly unlucky with things breaking at the most inopportune of times. If you are looking at BMWs specifically, why not opt for a E36 3 Series model? Similar vintage, but more common. However, speaking in the Sri Lankan context, Euro cars are not as easy to own as their Japanese counterparts. You need to have dedication, patience and some cash as well to keep them on the road. The driving experience ought to be worth it though!
  4. Still not great at parallel parking. Maybe it's because I don't get to do it too often?

      Atleast you know the term and the concept, that makes you a better driver than majority of drivers on SL roads

      Now what you need is practice (or a car equipped with a 4-way birds eye view camera system)

  5. So true about the Mk4 Supra fanboys. Just see how much criticism the Mk5 Supra gets...
  6. As much as I like the Supra... I don't think I can justify the price. Well it's a worldwide phenomenon with the Supras. From affordable used sports coupe to unobtainable classic in the span of a few years
  7. If there a few here, seems like a decent alternative to a Starlet GT or Glanza V. Love the dual spoiler at the the back of the car.
  8. 2nd owner... 1st one must have died from all the breakingūüėā
  9. Looks lovely! Can't believe all these cars are 20 years old nowadays. Guess I am still stuck in 2005
  10. Long time reader finally decided to jump in the fun... hope to have a good time here.
    Apparently, I had registered an account here long time ago to ask some random question on behalf of my dad. But forget that, we didn't even get the van after all.

    Anyways, car lover ever since I was a baby, the recent discussions just made me want to start posting instead of just passively reading from the sidelines. And by that, I don't mean the cars for x million rupees budget, but rather some threads about Truenos, BZ Corollas, Altezzas, etc.

      I must now embark on a search, through the valley of classifieds and the villages of brokers..

      In search of this CS3 you speak of. (Preferably in grey, GLX with teak dash & auto, just like the one I had during my harsh training years as a young child)

      You have trained me well senpai, now bless me on my journey you old man.

  11. Just wanted to post that a tragic accident happened in the first few laps The #95 Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage crashed into the barriers and the driver, Allan Simonsen, succumbed to his injuries RIP Allan Simonsen
  12. Hi everyone, Since I could not find anything by searching the forums, I would like to ask about this particular van. We had this van in the past for a couple of years and it did not give us many problems. But that was abroad. I would like to know how it is compared to other Japanese vans. I heard that spares are not very hard to find and that it uses a Mitsubishi engine (the P05 one if I'm correct). Since it is a tad cheaper than other vans, we would like to go for one of these. My main concerns are the reliability down here and the availability of spares. We are currently going to get one for 1. 8 million. Vehicle is in somewhat good conditions and there are no big problems whatsoever. Is it worth at that price?
