  1. Yes, I too thought about that tiv. But I'm not sure what the agent will use as per their schedule (need to check)...probably they will go with what the manual says I suppose. In that case, it's better to take the Oil by myself - 5w-30 Synthetic. This is what I wasn't sure about. Thanks mate.
  2. Hi Guys, I'm planning to to take my ride (CRV-2019, Australian version VTi-L) for its first (1,000KM) service at Staf##rd. The owners manual says either mineral or synthetic of 0w-20 is fine. But I've heard that it's good to go with mineral instead of synthetic for the first service. I don't want to entirely depend on what the agent says/promotes :). Appreciate if fellow CRV owners and experts could share feedback about this + your experience at the agent (Boralesgamuwa). Cheers!
  3. Registration (15,150/=) + Number Plate (3,300/=) = 18,450/= First Revenue = 4,000/= (could be less for a car) Yes, you need to pay RMV. They will issue an invoice at the time of registration which can be paid at the people's bank counter in the premise itself.
  4. Holy cow! 😮 There it was. Thanks a million kush. I was planning to do a visit to RMV. You saved my day 🙏
  5. Guys, I registered my new vehicle at RMV last week and today I realized that they had not given me the small white sticker (with the vehicle number printed on it) to paste in the front windshield. Does anybody know whether this is no longer issued or have they missed giving me one? Cheers
  6. Yes, LC and CD says "Brand New" and mileage is less than 200km. Thanks for clarifying Prangi. Cheers!
  7. Thank you both Prangi and tiv. I've heard that the vehicle first needs to be taken to Werahera to get the weight measurements certified prior to submitting the documents to DMT Narahenpita. Is this the case?
  8. Sorry for bumping an old thread. I think the DMT site does not clarify some of the above questions. Curios to know how it happens now. How to take the vehicle for inspection? (Should the vehicle be taken for an inspection at the time of submitting the application?) Is it legal to drive vehicle for inspection since I have no garage plates? (Having the Chassis/Engine number displayed will work?) Can I get it done within one day? How long does it take to get the number plates? Cheers!
  9. I guess the Australian version might suit better as the climate conditions are somewhat similar. Having said that, there are several JDMs of various car makes imported in to Sri Lanka by the day. So importing from either should be fine.
  10. I assume the VTi-S model from Australia does not come with a sunroof. The sunroof comes for the 7 seater L and LX models I believe. del1972: Did you purchase the vehicle through a local dealer/importer? Was it brand new? How does it work with the buying process? I assume there's no auction/bidding process like in Japan involved. So just curios to know how one would know/see the real condition of the vehicle prior to purchasing.
  11. Had the same question. This thread might help.
  12. Thanks. Will issues that could occur due to fuel quality and things like upholstery cracking still apply even if it is purchased brand new from the local agents?
  13. Hi I've noticed that there are more Mercs, BMWs and Audis up for sale in most car sales these days than the number of Japanese vehicles they have. I assume these are reconditioned imports from UK. I'm thinking of getting down a recon one through an importer instead of sticking with the local agents for a brand new (of course due to the price difference, which is about 2 million less + specs/variants that are not available with the agent). However, I have a concern that these recon vehicles from UK may not be tropicalised for our weather + road conditions as opposed to the ones purchased brand new through local agent. I assume this is not a problem with recon Japanese vehicles though. Please share your thoughts. Cheers!
  14. That's very useful to know. Thanks guys Quiet and ajm
