    @Roshan321, I have a good mind to file a petition in the court of admins challenging your membership of the aristocratic capitalist forum of autolanka due to you holding dual identities, forging official forms, and worst of all, for continuing to blather about with no sense of shame as if you didn't get caught with your pants down.

    We can also call Gamini Viyangoda and Chandraguptha Thenuwara to file the petition

    im suspecting the crank position sensor as well. If you pay a visit to Ravi (kelaniya) he should have plenty of parts to swap and verify.

    Usually I go at around 6pm and then I get the car at around 4am :D 7am is too warm to stay the whole day, so I take a pack of ciggies with me and spend the night there when there is less crowd, less noisy and less warm :D and sometimes I take few beers also, and a friend who lives closeby (who is also a customer of Ravi), and we do beers and chat till morning :D

  8. Ok so today i went to narahenpita with the receipt they gave. Then they told me to go to the 52nd room... from there they said werahera RMV hasnt sent them the form yet, apparently they send it the very next day... so i called a contact from werahera to see they have missed to send my form to narahenpita which they should have sent last week... so now again i have to wait until werahera sends the form to narahenpita and go there again.. after obtaining another seal from the 52nd room, then have to take that approval from again to the 41st room for the final registration... this is the remaining process.. sigh!

    Call me a stickler but I usually don't allow more than 4 people in whatever car I've owned. 5 or more and you risk the possibility of the car bottoming out over our glorious roads.

    I definitely would never do it on long trips and  but the typical Allion and Premio owner in SL doesn't care about stuff like that so each to his own.

    Yeah in my PRESEA i wont allow more than 4 in the back.

  10. so I thought of sharing the information of the colour change process at RMV as it is not the same process as it was before few years back.

    2 years ago, when i wanted to get the book updated for my colour change for my previous car it was so simple.. you obtain a form from narahenpita rmv, then go to werahera rmv and show the car. they then just check the chassis number, engine number and then one inspector approves the form with a seal with a 500 buck receipt. then had to go to narahenpita rmv with the form and the book of the car and they will send the book in 4,5 months time after updating it. thats it.

    That was then but now, shit gets real as the process has changed.

    Now if the car has lease, you can't get the colour change approval. You need to clear all your lease and get the book to your hand before the color change.

    Then you have to go get the form from narahenpita RMV and go to werahera RMV early in the morning at 8 and then stay in the queue. even if you go first doesnt mean you are the first to be inspected. also if you dont go before 10, you will be sent home to come early the next day. you stay seated inside for like 2 hours until they call your name. then you have to pay 500 bucks and get a receipt from them. Then you have to sit and wait for another hour until they call your name. And then they finally call your name. then you have to put the vehicle to the vehicle scale. then the weight of your vehicle showed in the scale should match the weight mentioned in the CR. if it doesnt match you are doomed, you cant get the approval. luckily the weight tallied mine. Then comes an inspector. He checks the engine number, chassis number, colour of the car. not only that they even measure the length of the car, height of the car, tire size, wheelbase, and all the details which are mentioned in the CR and all of those should tally what is in the book. if you have tyre size upgraded then you have to go through the process of submitting the tyre change forms as well. likewise everything should match in the book. then the first inspector checks all those and gives a signature. luckily all of those in the CR matched mine again. then you get to sit for another 1 and half hours.

    Then comes the turn of the head inspector.. so for another round, you have to repeat the same process of scaling, measuring heights and lengths of the car with him as well for the 2nd time.. this time not only that, he also check if the car is mechanically or physically faulty. he tells you to blink headlights, show if signal lights, parking lights as well as number plate lights are working and then he also gets inside the damn engine and check for oil leaks.. mine had a small oil leaking from the packing, therefore my colour change was not approved and told me to go fix the leak and come.. then the next time you come they once again do the process of inspecting the car 2 times by 2 different inspectors and once again they check if the car is in absolute mint condition like a brand new car. and once again pay 125 bucks and take a receipt and stay in the queue. and if there are no faults then the head inspector gives the approval. then you have to take that approval form to rmv narahenpita with the book, and after few months you get the updated book with the updated information. now i know after you read this you wont ever want to go through a colour change process. i had to go 3 times to get the approval form only. 

    hope this information helps. 

    PS: This is the legal way ok :D

  11. I think I don't like the smell inside my car... After having the interior washed 5months back I think the new car smell and the shampoo smell has been mixed and now the car gives a different smell which I dont know to tell if its good or bad.. i cant really figure out whether its an ok smell or a not good smell... so what can I do to change this smell? I tried spraying california scents all over the seats and all but i think this smell stays.. @matroska if you are passing my house when you are free just drop by to do a smell check and see if this is normal since you have had experience in many cars?

    You are comparing Apples and Lawulu here... the only common factor between these 2 are the price.

    HOWEVER both cars are quite old so we really can't give a verdict on #1 - for instance our forum member @PreseaLover had a horrid experience with a cefiro this does not mean they're all bad this also does not mean the 110's are as rock solid  like they were 10 years ago. So Keep some cash aside to sort out any potential issues. 

    Hammey... don't know from where to start :D

    Hi all,

    I am looking to buy my parents a car. My budget is 1.5 - 1.8 mil and I’ve narrowed down the options to a Corolla AE110 and Nissan Cefiro A33.

    The requirements are:

    1. Less breakdowns and repairs
    2. Long distance fuel economy 
    3. Comfort and safety

    The car will be used for Once a week 30km round trip and the occasional long distance family trip. The car will be parked home for most of the time.

    My dilemma is that I’ve read threads regarding the A33 about its very high fuel consumption, some engine issue which made someones car obsolete(apparently engines aren’t available for replacement) but there are cars with good conditions and low mileages. The corolla on the other hand is more fuel economical but hard to find a good condition car and the mileages are very high. I’ve read that cefiro’s with the neo engine has better fuel economy.

    Please help me to come to a conclusion. Just need a car that my parents can use with peace of mind and less expenses (fuel and repairs)

    thanks in advance

    Anyway if you are thinking that cefiro has low mileage - brother, you are wrong.. for instance if the car has 8 owners, that means at least 6 times the odo has been tampered.. and if it has 8 owners, actually it must have at least had 10 owners (counting the buyers with open papers) I bought the cefiro when it had 90K on the odo but actually it had run over 150k.. after i sold it, it was advertised again for sale in 2 weeks by a car sale and then the odo was 75k.. so in old cars, the odometer goes backwards and not forward. so if you are thinking that a 20 year old car would have anything below 150k - brother, you are still wrong. 

    And you are comparing one of the top fuel hungry cars vs lowest fuel hungry cars. You know that very well too right? so knowing that why are you asking about the cefiro again? you want to know the fuel figures is it? 3-5km in city and 5 is if you are lucky. 

    Either way, your parents wont have peace of mind buying a 20 year old car unless you keep aside 3,4 laks and do a full restoration and build the car up before giving it to them. 

    safety wise, if it crash hard you are going to die in both cars, cuz both has only 2 airbags, unless you buy that 8 airbag version of the cefiro- you might have a chance to live.

    Once she gets her replacement car take it to the social media with the evidence she has collected. Make sure another unsuspecting buyer won't fall into the same scam.

    And I think the lady should reveal the name of the car sale too so that in the future people would think twice to buy from that sale. these car sales dudes are real crooks.. they can do this to any vehicle and not only this.

  14. Guys this time I have a different requirement. Didn't wanna open another thread for this again so questioning it here...I'm hoping to do a trip alone, but this time I want to go stay around 1 or 2 nights in the WOODS where there is no human interaction or lights or whatever, I just want to enjoy the nature with some alone time.. so i dont mind staying in a smallest cabin if it has a bed..I don't want food either, i can take food and beers with me. I don't wanna go on hikes or anything so should be able to go in the car to the cabin through the jungle.. I don't mind driving over 100km's as I wanna enjoy the drive too... Any ideas? 


  15. What I noticed in my car was quite the opposite. before doing a hillside trip, i replaced brake pads, rears abs, new drums, new tyres. When going down the hill at the start I figured that I had to trample the brakes harder and deeper. I checked the brake fluid level too and it was the same. and after sometime it was normal once again. I thought i was losing brakes, so i had to go real slow for sometime. whats the explanation for this?


  16. So I'm having a very hard time maintaining my black car. I don't use it daily, I only take it out on the weekends. When I wash it on a weekend and take it out in 2,3 days for an emergency, i find it dusty as it has got caught to a desert storm. so I cant keep washing this every 2,3 days and Im looking for a solution like a proper car cover at least. The car is under a garage with a roof, but its an open garage exposed to the air.. an ordinary car cover can be used, but when we take it out, the dust of the car cover might rub on the paint and so it wont make a difference.. anybody has an idea about a better car cover or anything to be done?
