  1. VW agency was with Senok. Now they accommodate routine VW maintenance in the Subaru workshop at Grandpass. You don’t have to worry about this agent. But better if you speak to them about availability of spares,maintenance of the model you intend to purchase.
  2. Because the pistons move in opposite directions the natural rotational balance of the engine is very good, due to the cancelation of the piston inertia forces that move in opposite directions. Which means lower levels of vibration and harshness, which translates into less wear and tear and there fore higher level of durability meaning a more reliable and lower cost of ownership. Edit: With regards to the head gasket, I'm with you.
  3. And the benefit of a boxer engine of course.
  4. Yeah. J at Senok said those cars might do even 1 Million without an issue. Can’t expect same figures with the new 1L turbo versions. A1, Civic, etc...
  5. Hard to believe this. Welcome back Komi... What a start for the year at AL
  6. Happy New Year to team AL and all member! Well done @iRage @Davy @Crosswind @Rumesh88 & keep up the good work guys.
  7. By the looks of it we can merge this with “Best car post budget 2018” thread.
  8. As we can clearly see the government is not encouraging new vehicle imports. Is that a National issue at this very moment?
  9. As we know main stream Japanese cars were popular before the major revision of Import duties in 2007 (as I recall) Then when all the JDM loyalists saw the price reduction of the German counterparts, they went after those. If Mercedes offer a 1L C class or Ford come up with a electric car with the same price range of a leaf, you can imagine the rest......
  10. Did the gear oil change at the agents. They did the reset of the warning sign as well.
  11. AL member Magnum will be able to assist you.
  12. Crosswind is spot on. A popular insurance company in SL had a good quote in Sinhala. "Laabai, Baalai" Paying the correct price for a well maintained car sold by a genuine user, will enable you to enjoy your ride for many years to come. Just my opinion.
  13. I assume you are referring to the advert up on Quick site. If so do you have any idea why it is offered at a lower price tag?
  14. Yes CW, it's always better to take the car to the agent or to Car [email protected]&ks for a check up prior finalizing the deal. All cars came up for sale went of pretty fast.
  15. Few Ford Focus cars have come up for sale. I remember few AL members were in hunt for sometime. Helped one of my colleague also to get hold of one few weeks back.
  16. Why wash the engine bay? Washing it during the engine oil change/full service is sufficient.
  17. I assume you want a good place to get the routine full service done (since you have mentioned washing the engine bay) Since this will not be done daily/weekly/monthly, why not a visit to the agent in Colombo or an independent workshop recomended by another person?
  18. Did a paint job when I had my Insight from their Maradana work shop. They did a good job.
  19. Hi. Infact it's made in Maldives. Slightly better than a car manufactured in India.
  20. Never knew when you bring the same car from down south to Katunayaka, milage reduces automatically. First advetisment (21/12/2016) Second advertisment (21/01/2017) PLEASE REFRAIN FROM POSTING LINKS TO OTHER CLASSIFIED SITES
