      Why are you silent these days? I was expecting some daily status updates.. Looks like ur really happy with your new purchase after all :D 

    3. ArtfulDodger


      @PerfMad I dont know what to do with my car anymore.. whether to keep it or sell it.. one day i like it and the next day i want to go for another.. I did a math with the 3 number plates I had in my previous cars and this, and according to the numerology findings of mine and my calculations, I should not sell it within this month. So waiting till august is over...

      wtf did i just read ...keep it bung... good cefiro's are hard to come by :D take her for a long trip and ride it till it gives a really horrible gear-box issue. Then sell it off to crosswind.

      Im trying to do u  a favour here. Nobody else will buy that car unless you give a free petrol bowser with it

    3. ArtfulDodger


      You know jack about cefiro's.. This car has a huge market and people are there to buy.. There was a white cefiro that went from an owner to a broker.. I missed buying the car from both of them.. likewise i missed quite a few cefiro's within hours trying to buy it.. 

    4. Crosswind


      Where? Manning market, Dambulla market or Peliyagoda fish market?

  12. The goal is to change cars every 6 months and go for upgrades every 6 months time. This way I get to drive many cars in my life and upgrading as well whilst the vehicle prices rise up accordingly...

      Ado there is a Skyline 250GT in quick site :D 😍

    3. ArtfulDodger


      why is the skyline going for such a low price?

    4. iRage


      Because...you don't get Genuine Original Nassan parts at every shop in Panchi/Delkanda/etc...because it doesn't get 15kmpl like the fatta doctor sunny. No resale value....Sunny has appreciation, these cars are useless because they come with depreciation...

    So for those who wanted to know in detailed differences of the Excimo and 2.0 I analyzed the 2 cars as I went to inspect close to 30 cefiro's (both eximo and 2.0's) here they are... 1. Singa version has electric seats, leather seats, auto bonnet (no need of pulling out that iron pole to have it stabilized, once you lift the bonnet it stays in the air supported by bonnet shocks) 2. singa version has an odometer of 260km/h but japan version has only upto 180km/h 3. singa version is faster in pickup and japan version is slower compared to the jap 4. japan version has the grille similar to the N17 and singa version has a different grille 5. Singa version comes with size 15 tyres by default and jap version comes with size 14 6. Singa version comes with 2 cigerette lighters..one for the dashboard and one in the rear.. so you can have 2 charging points 7. you can change the brightness of the odometer in the night in the singa version but in jap version you cant do that.. I also saw 2 different excimo models - one had the rear speakers in the rear doors and the other had the rear speakers in the board behind the rear seats. However, in the singa version the rear speakers comes to the rear doors. If I have missed anything in this list please add
