    Interesting analysis. What you think about Nissan Leaf .. aren't that people more conscious on environment in Japan ? Do Japan also going to abolish combustion engines in near future ? Thanks.
  3. 2018 Budget - Vehicle import duty

    Well it can be the case in comparison to major JDM. Its interesting to see that mid range is least popular compared to highest end and kei models. Prius is 33rd, Vezzel is 34th and Axio is ??. . According to overall popularity ranking Aqua and Vitz are competing each other on top. But brand wise Daihatsu seems more popular than Toyota in Japan . But Daihatsu is owned by Toyota as well. Leaf is no where.

    Suzuki Baleno 1.0 L - (JDM 2016-2017 model) is available for a price tag of 3.7 m. It comes with a turbo charged engine (K10C) claiming a higher output than its 1.2L version (K12C) . Not sure whether this booster jet engine has its own cons. Pros can comment more on this car. Here is the specs :
  8. Emission test

    If I ask a question from all of you what would be your answer. Select one from the given answers..genuinely Question : why do you really take your vehicle to the emission test ? Answers (a). Because I really concern about the air pollution and I want to keep my vehicle emissions below thresholds. (b). Because I can't renew my road license / revenue license without emission test certificate (c). None of above. Other reason.
  9. Emission test

    No not the air quality monitoring unit. There is a different division for that. Yes they do the test at the exhaust. I was kidding. You can any time get your vehicle tested from a nearby emission testing center. I am not selling those equipment but I was into to research in a similar area. Keep your filters, injectors, plugs clean, do oil changes on time. do a compression test if it is required. Then nothing to worry about emission, noise, vibration levels.
  10. Emission test

    No its not by the traffic police. By the cea officials. Yes they have mobile emission testing equipment and they are qualified and trained to do all those testing. They are the people who regulate all the emission test centres around the Sri Lanka and involve in defining the emission thresholds too. No these road side tests are very seldom. Usually they stop the vehicles randomly ( of course traffic police need to be there). afik there are no spot fines for failing to abide emission standards. Problem comes if spot testing fails while you carry a valid testing certificate with you. I saw few such cases in media. Further, you should aware of the validity of testing equipment and technical competence of the staff in the emission testing centres. You always have the right to ask calibration certificate of all the testing equipment, specially the sensors. Most of these gas , vibration, particle, noise censors are very sensitive and require timely maintenance, change of filters, cleaning and calibration by authorized persons or vendors ONLY. afik test centres are following those standards. But .. If you really want to check your vehicle emission levels at home, can get a branded and reliable sensor for a around 1.2 M from Sri Lanka.

    Thank you mate, very informative. What is the difference between Swift 1.0 L Indian version and Japanese version ? Only the Mild Hybrid Option ? Has Japan Officially launched X-Bee ?
  15. 2018 Budget - Vehicle import duty

    You can be correct. This particular batch is not available in the Japanese domestic versions. According to them only version with 1.0 L is RSt, which is non-hybrid. All the other versions are 1.2 L - 4 cylinder.
