    Mazda 323 BJ-II Astina SP20 Hatch

    Congratulations @Davy. She’s a minter and Looks like an excellent buy. Back in the days my best friend used to have a Red Astina and I remember how it got me hooked. Brings back loads of memories!! cheerz!
  2. My fellow AL Guys, I have been an avid autolanka member since I got my first car (Mazda demio) back in 2017.One thing that always intrigued me was how much AL members loved their lancers. So I always thought to my self what would it be like to own one. I have read every posts/discussions related to lancers ( AL Famous BRATT tread- that was one hell of a tread and I read all 32 pages of it) and I always questioned myself "is this actually good as members claim it to be? so I decided a give it a try. Long story short, when I saw this advert on autolanka about a month a back my eyes were completely fixated on this beauty. it was one of the most beautiful lancers I have seen. However at that point I had some other personal issues to take care of and my mind was not in a good mood to concentrate on the car. After sometime back I was surprised to see the lancer was still on classifieds. I thought it would be gone. So I contacted the seller, who confirmed me that the car was still available. I was over the moon and 2 days after I went to inspect the car and that was it. Knew she was meant to be mine.I paid an advance after inspecting and reserved the car for myself. ( hats off to the previous owner who is a Known lancer enthusiast for properly taking care of the car) It took another 2 weeks to sort out the finances for myself ( to sell my Demio and arrange the rest of the funds). and Last Friday I brought the lancer to my rural village. couldn't be more happier. I would like to thank AL members specially Davy,Trinity and the rest of the AL Lancer guys who made me a lancer lover and eventually an owner.So without further ado I bring to you " Evangeline" ( I bought this ride for her.Had to name the car after my daughter). More pics and updates to follow.

    @Hyaenidae There's no functionality. I fitted those for aesthetic purposes only. Got them for free thanks to @ELNINO.

    Brake pedal is softer than before

    Hi, first of all stop driving the vehicle and take it your local garage right away. You are putting yourself and the other people's lives at risk. There could be number of reasons for this. 1. Air bubbles are trapped inside the system. 2. Loss of brake fluid. 3. Brake master cylinder has gone bad. 4. Bad brake booster. 5, A Leak somewhere in the brake system. 6, Brake wear and adjustment. I would first suggest bleeding the brake system to see if the problem goes away.

    I assume you are referring to the slight patch just where the left fender meets the upper part. it's not a damage. Just a mud patch caused by excessive driving in the rain.

    Greetings guys, It’s been a while and I have Few updates to report. Replaced Rear tires- As confirmed before I wanted to use Bridgestone potenzas. Checked with autodrome and few other places, But damn those babies are expensive. Hence had to settle with a pair of Nankang Sports NS-20 (225/45/R18). Can not complain or compare as anyway I am riding low profile which makes me aware of slightest bumps/Pat holes on the road. These were the only affordable ones I could find to fit my wallet.( if you are wondering it cost me 47k for the 2 tires which includes Wheel balancing and alignment). Ac was blowing hot air- At first I thought it could be a leak in the system. Hence recharged the system and performed a through inspection through a professional. No leaks were found. However I am keeping an eye and Will monitor in the coming months. Brakes were making a squeaking noise in cool temperature- as I suspected front brake pads were showing their age and brake pads were replaced. No more shouting!! What good is an update without any pics? Taken from a few road trips that I went and some in my neighborhood. Enjoy Cheerz!!

    ## Post Whoring - Part 3 ##

    For me the most realistic NFS experience were Shift and shift unleashed. I loved the feeling of being in the cockpit view. If you want the most realistic of them all try “Project cars”.

    Suzuki Hustler/wagon r Vs Demio

    Hands down Demio is a much better choice in every possible way. My first car was a 2009 Demio and I had sheer amount of fun driving that. Sad to let her go☹️..

    That totally slipped my mind. Actually one of those cops even asked me that question.😋

    Do dreams come true? = YES (Bought a lancer ex)

    You are correct.This is indeed a grey area and sometimes cops don’t even know what they are talking about. I didn’t use to have this issue before. but given the current situation of the country there are soo many checkpoints. But here’s the scenario. So far I have been pulled over by 6 checkpoints on the way from home to Colombo. Only 2 out of those checkpoints highlighted this number plate position. I think I am sticking to what I have for the moment. Believe they can’t spot fine me or put a court case over this otherwise they would have already done it.

    Hi guys, kindly assist to clarify , So I was pulled over by traffic police and asked me to change the front number plate position to the middle. As you may know I have a side number plate in front and as far as I know the law states that number plate should be in a visible place and does not specify a position. The police said that at first they thought that I did not have a front Num plate and side Num plate was not visible to them. Thank you
