  1. So I actually still dont have a Nissan badge in my car for the dickey, because it didnt have one when i bought it, but i dont want the silver one, looking for a GOLD one.. anyone has a nissan gold badge for sale?

  2. You have no idea of the new 'Colour change process' at RMV you guys... went 2 times and still couldn't get it done.. I don't think I ever will... unlike those days, you cant get it done easily now. if you ever decide to change colour or any modification to your car which requires book update, might as well forget about it cuz they wont approve it unless you go there 4,5 times and kiss their ass. I will separately create a new post for the new process for colour changes and modifications.

      To me...the problem lies in you and everyone else who goes through the system.

      When you take your car for a color change (or engine swap or any other update change approval needed) what they do is a technical inspection on the car. You need to pass the technical inspection for anything to be approved. Your car failed the technical inspection. Period. Mind you these inspections are mandatory for all cars in many other parts of the world on an annual/periodic basis. 

      you failed the inspection because there were defects on your car. Instead of fixing the bulb and the oil leak you offered a bribe....so your car was still in a questionable state and instead of fixing it you opted to make the inspector richer with that money; just like every other guy who goes there.

      So tell me....why would these guys ever do their jobs right ? Why would the the country ever change ?

      I went home and checked in the weekend... The bulb was working and there was no oil leak.. the oil stains were from a previous repair i guess.. he saw the stains and told there is a oil leak so i believed the f**k... when he said the bulb was not working, i didnt really check infront of him, i blindly accepted what he said... my fault so what to do.

      Which goes back to my question....why would these guys ever want to do their jobs properly when they can make a quick buck by just faking it ? If they did do their jobs properly the guy would be properly qualified and would actually know what he/she is doing and would have realized that the oil stain was old.

      Sad state of affairs....as i always do....I blame the education system for this....

  3. Took the car for the colour change process to werahera at 2.30pm and the head mofo said cant take in now as he has to go at 4.15 and told to come another day at 8am. i begged him for 10 minutes and he scolded me, so i scolded him back and told him to kiss the fattest part of my big ass. So instead of going to werahera again i can do the process at Gampaha kachcheri too right? anyone know an inside connection who works at gampaha kachcheri?

      35 sounds bit too much for a car. Btw i thought you were gonna get Michelin tyres

      @alpha17 If im not wrong, the tyre pressure is mentioned in kpa in all JDM vehicles

      I was going to get michelling for my credit card (under installments), and when i went to D*MO to purchase, they said michellin stock is over and will not arrive for a month and then  the  offer wont be there, so had to go with Nankang, but the nankang is superb, its a huge transformation from bridgestone... very less road noise and higher comfort that bridgestone

  7. Ok so this time Restoration I think, I replaced  every possible worn out part, and spent more than the last and and the satisfaction is also higher than the last.. still not done with it though.. Basically to replace a worn out nickle handle I purchased an entire Presea door! We are talking about that kind of a restoration here cuz i have severe OCD.

      I bought a set for my Bluebird form eBay and it fit perfectly. If I remember right you need to measure the center cap size diagonally.

    3. Davy

      Davy

      @Magnum How can a circle be measured diagonally? :D 

    4. Magnum

      @Davy lol I meant by measuring the diameter :D

      My bad!

  12. Contemplating whether to keep the 185/70/14 or to go for 205/70/14... The idea of the project is to make this look classy and not sporty... So Worried of the following reasons:

    (i) The comfort level will reduce

    (ii) The classiness of the car will go away

    (iii) Fuel efficiency will drop down

    (iv) Handling will be harder

  13. It has begun you guys... Project Presea Refina 'L' begins today!

      PreseaLover

      yeah, im just going to put a double din audio player without the touch display which is a new one, similar to what i had in my previous car.. i mean the one with buttons :) found a used one from someone for a low price so im selling my dvd player for a lower price too :) 

  19. Guys if the shift in the gear between P and D is rough (like you  need to put additional effort from your hand to put it to D from P like something is stuck inside), but the shift from D to the 1,2 or any other gear is smooth and no need a big effort, does that mean there is a problem in the gear box or the gear shift pole?

      Could be the inhibitor switch, a not so difficult cheap fix to replace or repair, but catastrophic failure if ignored. Is it on a hill?

    3. PreseaLover

      PreseaLover

      its the gear cable mate.. so what the mechanic said was the gear cable should be turned towards the other side a bit which will fix the issue.. so from the spanner he moved the gear cable a bit and the issue went.. now there is only a slight roughness.. and said thats the maximum the gear cable can be pulled... not on the hill.. it was in the flat road. 

    4. PerfMad

      PerfMad

      may be you can replace it with a new one down the line of your restoration project :D

      Glad my hunch was correct :D 

  20. I have done some motoring Karma in my previous birth that I have to suffer finding a Presea in this birth... sigh

    1. Hyaenidae

      Hyaenidae

      ...like selling a perfectly fine Presea on a whim 😝

  22. Any recommended mechanic who I can take with me to inspect cars, who is based around, kandana, ragama, wattala, peliyagoda, kelaniya areas? 

    1. PerfMad

      PerfMad

    2. PreseaLover

      PreseaLover

    4. Crosswind

      Crosswind

      Let's do like this. 

      1. Buy the old presea

      2. Give it to me for a day

      3. I'll crash it and give it to you

      Then it will be a restoration project. You can fix armrests, paddlebrakes, coilovers and everything

  24. I have spent 50k on transport and mechanic costs inspecting Presea's all around the country for the past month upto today. And I'm getting tired of it. But do I settle for less? No, the hunt continues for an H' number automatic...

      >Um...looking at your wall I think many have already drawn that conclusion already... the folk that still hang out with you? They are doing that out of kindness

      LMAO :D 

      >ammatasiri  talk about cross-forum love affairs

      The dude @Hyaenidae mentioned my real name also. I know most people know my name, but now everyone knows my name after that. Revealing one's identity is not done out of good humour mate

      >its like talking to a brick wall 

      Wahahahahah :D on a daily basis at least a minimum of 5 people tell me this and make that suggestion, even my parents :D It's like loving one girl and living with another. Same here, even if buy another car I will always want to go back to a Presea, the love is eternal.. The devil got into my head and he is the one who made the decision of selling my previous. Now the devil is out and I got my senses back.

       >mentioned my real name also

      Didn't know you wanted to keep it a secret, (I know that is a weak excuse) I apologize... But if you take a look at that thread you'll see your name was mentioned even before I mentioned your last name so I thought it isn't a big deal

    4. matroska

      matroska

      out of curiosity did a search on the particular forum and well in all honesty Hyanidae has been 'bumping' the thread so maybe the man actually wants to help :D 

  25. Is there any hybrid car I can borrow on Saturday from someone??... I can pay for the rent not on KM basis, but just for the day for the usage.. Anyone willing to lend theirs???
