    toyota premio 2010

    You can easily find a well maintained car. But finding a good premio- Not so easy. It’s advisable to buy a car from a well known person if you are looking to buy a premio.

    Demio 2009 Spoiler

    About 3 months ago when I checked with mazna it was available. But as Davy has mentioned you can find lots of recon parts for Demio in delkanda area.

    Let’s hope the trend will change.However I believe the typical mindset of vehicle buyers in SL can not be changed under any circumstances. Their minds are completely fixated on Toyotas. Can not blame them as this is what the society has feeded to our minds. While we are living in that bubble getting to what we really want is difficult.However there are still people out there who think outside of the box and actually do something different like buying a Mazda, Honda, lancer ex’s etc. I think those fall into a unique crowd within the society.

    In my opinion You can’t predict the future and buy a vehicle. Instead you should consider the options you have at the present and sort of compare pros and cons of each model and then decide on what suits you the best. But one thing for sure.Considering how crazy Sri lankans go over Toyotas ( highly exaggerated) a well maintained premio or an allion will hold the value much much longer.

    If you are not interested in resale value, Swift RS would be the best choice. One would make an argument as to why do you want to buy almost a decade old vehicle when you can buy something new for the same price you are paying. Also this steering rack issue in Swift RS can easily be remedied by replacing the Gel inside as far as I know.

    Real-life fuel economy of WagonR?

    I think people tend to mock the car because there are soo many of them on the road. When you close & open your eyes you see a wagon R on the road.In my opinion it’s a practical choice for an average person who just wants to own a vehicle for the family or to run a taxi business. A car enthusiast will never buy a wagon R. instead they will opt for something more fun

    Grace 2015 or Axio 2015 or Premio 2012 ?

    I assume you are not a hatchback lover. Otherwise Swift RS 2017/2018 is a solid choice which falls right in within your budget.

    Any experience with colonial motors

    May we know what engine part are we talking about here? Because mazna quoting 85k and the same repair being quoted 10k at colonial does not make sense.At colonial are they accepting parts from outside?

    Any experience with colonial motors

    I would recommend Mazna motors over colonial

    Car around 3.4-3.6 mil

    Agreed. However it's really hard to find a person who's willing to sell his/her precious lancer EX. Have seen only handful of them advertised. Relatively civics are readily available.

    Renewal of Previous versions of Driving License

    Yes they returned me the previous licence after punching. I am also not sure about this rule. Been driving with my old school licence for more than a year. Luckily never got caught or stopped by traffic police.

    Renewal of Previous versions of Driving License

    Yes. Sorry forgot to mention. My old school licence was faded and unreadable. So thought of renewing before I get apprehended for having an illegible licence.

    Renewal of Previous versions of Driving License

    Guys I renewed my Very old driving licence today and thought of sharing my experience on top of what Trish_auto has articulated. My intention was to get the Medical certificate + Licence in one day. Went to National transport of medical institute Nugegoda (NTMI) around 6.45am. Already people were lining up and my TN number was 41. The process was exactly as Trish_auto has explained.I was able to get the certificate to my hand at 9.30am. (It is advisable to go there between 6.00 and 7.00 AM if you are planning to get the licence and the medical certificate in the same day). Had a quick snack and reached RMV werahera at 10.30am. Here the processes are pretty straightforward. My token Num was 192 and they have already started calling normal and one-day service applicants simultaneously when I reached. After about 30min of arrival they started calling one-day service applicants and I was able to complete the whole process by 11.45am. They asked me to collect the licence in 2 hours at the office just near the main gate. (As far as i understood per day they take around 200 applications for one-day service) I went out and after about 2 hours came back to collect the card. when i inquired at the office they told me that my application has still not being processed and asked me to check back at one of the counters in the office inside. So I went back to the counter they directed me to go to and the officer apologized " Sir samawenna tawa peyakin api licence eka ewannam" ( thought to myself "a typical Govt office blunder" ). I waited for 45min and finally they called my name to collect the licence. Bottom line- with the exception of the blunder I would say I am happy with the service I received (I used public transport and the process could actually be faster if you use your own transport). But would advise to someone who's opting for one day service to stay in the vicinity for at least an hour after you completed the licence application and the payment process. Check your status with one of the officers at the collection office before heading out and come back. ( Just to be rest assured that your request is in progress while you are away). Cheerz.
