    Guys, since there is a SR18 version engine also in preseas, im wondering whether it will be a good move to get the sr18 version... What are the other nissan cars that consist of the SR18 engine in sri lanka? Since im hoping to keep my next presea for my life I wanna make sure, I will easily be able to source a SR18 engine from Sri Lanka when needed... Any advice on this? Also cant the GA15 parts be used at all for this version?.. Would there be a significant difference in fuel figures comparing to the GA15DE?
  2. I've been seeing a Presea advertised in the quick site for all these years for 3 times now, in fact i went to inspect the car 4 years back and didnt buy it.. all 3 times it was advertised, I see that the odomoter is tampered with... does every tom dick and harry who buys cars does this now when they want to sell?.. shik

      This happened to one of my relation who bought a 2000 Corolla 121. He saw the ad on paper abt the car and inspected the car. When he was ready to purchase,someone else had bought it for around 2.7mil. Then he chased the buyer and bought it back for 2.77million.When he purchased it, it was clocked around 78000-79000 kms. When I saw the car, it was in good condition in perfect shape, but seemed a bit worn like. About using for around 4 years,he sold it for 3.1 million and the mileage was around 110k as I remember. One day when I met him after sale he said.”Malli man ahu unane!!!” According to him the car had done nearly 300k kms and the seller had tampered it. He noticed when he saw a service sticker mentioning the mileage over 300k kms. When he sold it, the car had done closer to 350k kms. Anyway, I didn’t give him any trouble.

      But look how the cars are abused here in SL🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

      Even a famous person I know in education field also tampered the mileage from 270k kms to 125k kms....funny thing is, he is a very religious person. Told me it cost him only rs.2000.😅😅😅

  3. Guys, do you think buying from a car sale can be a risk than buying from an individual even though it is inspected by a mechanic? cuz after my cefiro incident of buying from a car sale, im very reluctant to buy from sales as those salesmen can hide issues and sell the car

      well this is where inspection comes into place. The sale guys as you mentioned are better at the game than an individual. However some times the guy selling his 'Personally used car' is also a buyya  who has mastered the art of beautifying and selling crap-heaps.

      You could have used a professional inspection company, no way a mechanic can recommend a car buy just beating around it and looking at the engine dipsticks / caps etc.

      Also car sales keep certain cars in rented houses/ company buildings etc and to get rid of them!

      In your case, its not the seller thats the problem. Its the buyer.

  4. I cant believe no one wants to sell their preseas. its just a simple requirement.. an 'H' number automatic Presea and that's it.. is this too much to ask for?

      @dantoddd if yours were an 'H' number I wouldnt hesitate, as my name starts with 'H', the requirement is mandatory for me. 

  5. Was gonna buy a Presea this week and advanced the lady owner.. today she returns the advance to me and says she changed her mind.. guys help me out find a H number auto presea please.

    with what happened with my cefiro, im right now facing a phobia to buy any car... Davy do you think if i buy the car I will be able to fix this lights flickering issue? Im afraid that i wont be able to fix this and go through another loss again... im afraid to buy a car that has a mileage of over 200k again thinking that the engine will seize again.. has anybody gone through a situation like this? what should i do?

    guys, I went to inspect a presea.. everything was fine apart from the fact that the indicators in the meterboard, the headlights, the a/c lights and everything were dimming and blinking slightly. Would this be due to a faulty alternator? can we fix the alternator or should we replace the alternator?

      1.4mil for the Cefiro... for the Presea 1.6.. Max - 1.7 if the condition is top, but should be an H number automatic though. cuz my real name starts with H and I cant set my mind to buy anything other than a H number

      lol 😛 haha thanks

  10. The gaskets and the head of my Cefiro Engine blew off.. Searched the whole country for a Singa Version engine and all I could find was a Jap engine (which is completely different to the neo engine including the mounts). So returned the new engine back and sold the car without the engine for dirt cheap. half a million loss.. Now looking for an automatic Presea again and do another presea project.

      It happens to some people. Don't worry. I hope its lightly used and clean. The car, I mean.

      @Crosswind the Cefiro had "not even a single stain mark in seats" and was "used very carefully and rarely" but look what happened 😅

  11. Ok decided... Any Mark II GX100's available? The condition doesnt matter, I will restore it. Officially looking for a Mark ii GX100 now. 

  12. If anyone is in a mood to make a couple of prank calls, there's a gold cefiro advertised in the classifieds, whos owner appears to be thinking very highly of the car :D

      I have a load of options, after selling the car, depending on what i get to my hand i might chose from the lot.. either euro or japan sedan (bmw, benz, volvo, mark 2 etc.)

    3. matroska

      macho i know a guy like that who started using cars for 2 months ...eventually he decided that transferring it was not worth the hassle so kept it on open books for a few months and sold it off...eventually he figured out how to make it profitable - and eventually he became a buyya (buy-and-sell businessman) so BEWARE :D !!!

      ...another option for you is to rent a few cars if you want to know which one you like but i agree cars for rent are the mundane common ones so you won't get to actually rent a Volvo etc unless you purchase it outright.

      yeah true.. next im looking for a Mark ii or a Chaser... if not I actually dont know what to buy.. im afraid of going for a Euro at this point as i cant afford to pay for higher maintainence.. my budget is 2mil and I at least want a car that does 7 or more than fuel this time as it will be my daily ride once again after few months time.
