    Their charges seem very reasonable, I have a 4-year NCB with c******o, yours is cheaper even then

    Shifting to N while the engine is running

    The Belta is a CVT innit? Since it made an audible sound which went away when following this procedure I think this is applicable for CVTs as well

    Why does this happen to mirrors?

    Did you try wiping it off with a tissue?

    Shifting to N while the engine is running

    This should be corrected as SB >> Shift to N >> Engage PB >> Release SB >> Engage SB >> Shift to P >> Release SB Releasing the SB while the gear is in N without engaging the PB would make the car roll neh, that would be quite dangerous on an incline. You should release the SB only after the PB is engaged, to make sure that the PB is firmly applied and it is holding the car completely still. After you made sure that the PB is holding the car, you can engage the SB again and shift the car to P. When I was using the 2nd method my Belta used to make the thud sound, that went away when using the 1st method. Haven't tried the 2nd method on the EX yet, been using the 1st method since it was brand new. When reversing, Reverse to place>> Engage SB>> Shift from R to N >> Engage PB >> Release SB >> Engage SB >> Shift to P >> Release SB

    Regarding oil burning issue of Honda gP 1

    What they do is just a cleanup AFAIK. The issue will return. Get the pistons and piston rings replaced with redesigned ones from Stafford Lanka or a trusted 3rd party workshop

    Sounds like the battery cannot hold the charge

    Shifting to N while the engine is running

    @trinity You see, when you put the gear into P, you engage the parking pawl. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parking_pawl When you engage the parking pawl before applying the parking brake, the car is being held by the parking pawl instead of the parking brake. So, when I shift the car to N and apply the parking brake, (Steps 2 and 3) the car is being held by the parking brake instead of the parking pawl. Steps 4 and 5 are to ensure that the parking brake is firmly engaged. My previous car, a Belta, used to make an audible "thud" every time I shifted from P to D, just like @iRage said - When I tried this method for the first time there was no sound at all! I've been parking every auto car this way ever since.

    Talking about gas... have you guys ever come across this little gem of a story?

    DFSK 580

    Yeah, I... wouldn't let anyone mess with the electrical system of the car, especially when it's a new model which I'm sure the monkeys of the Sun Lanka haven't laid their hands on, like, ever. They actually tried to cut the wire harness of my car just to install a 2DIN player because the original connector didn't fit the 2DIN player they had, instead of using an adapter. Luckily I was there watching the whole thing, too bad for the people who left their cars there and left - trusting them to do a good job of installing accessories. tl;dr: You're better off without a blind spot monitoring system, keep the electrical system as it is rather than getting it butchered by local "electricians"
