    Car inner door step protection

    Bought my car 2 weeks back and in desperate need to apply some protection to the inner door step panel (where footwear can easily scratch off - the plastic area - image attached) 3M transparent film costs 9800 for them to apply it for all 4 inner doorstep panels only ( not other upholstery) Am I the only one who think it's too costly.?

    Engine Braking

    Engine breaking helps saving breaking machanism in our vehicles thus improving its life. Also engine breaking has its advantages when traveling downhills and slopes. My question, is there any benefit in doing this (engine breaking) while traveling in heavy traffic.?? (as the chances are high where you need to depress brakes padels more often)??

    Toyota Vitz 2016

    What would be the best option. Below is my travel pattern. Monthly travel distance - 700km (maximum) - daily office route (10km up & down) - Colombo to Makola twice a month (90 km) - Misc. trips (short ones) - Once in 6 months (Kandy) Option 1 I know that all the Aquas 2014 our there is needing battery replacement in no time even if the reports indicate 95+ capacity. Let's say I planned to find a low mileage (40000-50000 km) one with a decent battery.... Option 2 Vitz 2015/16 is the other recommended option. I know that the fuel economy is not so great. But at least it's a from a recent year (2016) and I don't mind the compact look as it's a bit smaller compared to an Aqua. Suppose I can find a low mileage 2016 one with good maintenance. In any case I'll be selling whichever car in next 3.5 years. So considering the whole life time usage whatdo you guys think I should be looking at??

    Temperature indicator (blue)

    My car dashboard indicates this temperature sign in blue even after the engine is somewhat warmed up. After I start driving for about 1.5 minute only it goes off. Can this happen even in this hot climate?

    Temperature indicator (blue)

    What level of temperature normal car engines get heat up to ? 95°C ? How about the engine running at 20-40 km/h and 60 km- 100 km/h or more ?... (just wondering).

    Thanks for comment, btw is it the time taken for oil to reach all parts of the engine or coolant to absorb the heat of the engine... Or both ?

    Head rest

    Can you all suggest something that can be fixed to the seats (which will provide some comfort to the head) I have attached a picture of a similar seat for reference. Appreciate your valued suggestions as always.. [emoji4] Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk

    Octane 92 or 95 (Vitz 2016)

    I have got a relatively new toyota Vitz (KSP130) 2016 couple of days ago and was wondering what grade of fuel should I use... I know obviously higher the grade higher the quality so octane 95 is more appropriate. My question to you all is.... Will there be any major consequence of using 92. Would appreciate a technical answer.. [emoji4] Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk

    Also, just need to know whether there is any unusual noise generated by the engine in Vitz as its 1000cc. I got few people telling me this - any validity here. ? By Vitz i meant 2016 and 2015 in particular.
