    Microwave oven - repair shops

    I once did a repair at Abans Wellawatte. They charged 1500 or something to fix a noise by replacing some rubber. I think that's a reasonable charge.

    Okey.. In general, with regards to Japanese vehicles, which is considered better? JDM or Export variant?

    Do you have a similar kind of Japanese link for the Lancer ex?

    Swift boosterjet vs Lancer Ex

    I don't think so. Do you have a reference? I took the reference from here: https://www.stcars.sg/singapore-car/cars/suzuki-swift-6542/specification PS: Please note I mentioned in BHP and you mentioned in PS.

    Lancer EX Running Repairs and Maintenance

    May I ask you how much you spent for the 3M tint?
  13. Can we say Swift 1litre boosterjet is more powerful than 1.5l Lancer Ex? 🤔🤔 (I haven’t driven either so far) Coz when I checked the specs Swift has an edge (109bhp and 170nm torque vs 109bhp and 143nm torque in the lancer) On top of this Swift is about 300kg lighter. I still don’t understand why 2008 Lancer Ex is going same price range as 2017 Swift Rs. 😬

  15. Hi all, I’m planning to upgrade from Viva Elite to Picanto 2018. But I’m confused as to whether is it a worthwhile upgrade? Because following facts are similar in both: 1) Engine capacity 2) Features (ABS, SRS) 3) Fuel efficiency 4) Ride quality And I’m planning to buy brand new and use it for minimum 5 years. Please help me to settle my mind. My other option is Lancer Ex, but it would be older. Thanks.
