  3. I have a toyota Vitz 2017. All the gears I have are P,R,N,D-S,B. I don't know what really the gear 'B' stands for, but i think it means 'Engine break' when going in slopes to avoid using brakes all the time. Problem is I sometimes forget to change gear 'B' to 'D' when I am accelerating after a slope and go some distance without understanding. I only understand it when i feel the engine is not accelerating as it used to. So my questions are, 1.What is really gear 'B' stands for? 2.Did I damage my engine or gear box by accelerating for some distances in gear 'B'? Thank you!
  4. One of my friends wants to buy an after market FK8 (Civic Type R) spoiler for his FK7. But most Sri Lankan sellers have a different version of this spoiler which has a wrong scale. What they have is not the correct scale. There's no OEM version yet, so have to find the best replica. Sri Lankan sellers have a spoiler shown in the below picture, which is neither the correct scale nor correct shape as in real FK8. Notice how it connects to the wing. Fixing something like this would definitely mess up aero dynamics of the car than fixing something at least closely matches the original one. Correct spoiler looks like this, Notice it's not connected to the bent part of the wing. It just fits in between wing and bent area At the moment there are replicas of correct scale on the internet. We contacted few major spare part sellers who brings down type r spoilers and bodykits, but all of them have the wrong scale version. Does anyone know someone who imports this correct full scale FK8 spoiler?

  12. සුසුකි සමාගමෛ් අලුත්ම නි‍ශ්පාදනය Suzuki Wagon R 2017 This is the most significant update in the design of the WagonR and Stingray ever since their launch and we are emphasising on the design because these are probably one of the quirkiest cars introduced by the Suzuki. The cars look a boxier now and the new styling further emphasises the tallboy stance of both the WagonR and the Stingray. New Suzuki WagonR Front In terms of styling, the new Suzuki WagonR features a new grille with a prominent chrome element flanked by new squarish headlamps. The front bumper is also new and comes with a large airdam and the bonnet has also been shortened. The Suzuki Stingray, on the other hand, has a very different face with a more edgy bonnet, Chevy-like two-part grille and angular headlamps. The front bumper also is new and a bit more muscular with a trapezoidal airdam and vertical foglamp housings on either side.

Thank you
  14. Unequivocal. That's not a word you hear often, but it's what we've been about the excellent package the Skoda Fabia offers. That’s why it’s our current favourite small car. However, we accept that it’s not overtly exciting, inside or out, so we’re keen to find out if this snazzy-looking new Nissan Micra can equal – or better – the Fabia’s strengths. Now, snazzy isn’t a description traditionally associated with the Micra. It was always a no-frills little car, and like the Fabia it was easy to drive and relatively cheap to buy. But as you can see, Nissan has pulled out all the stops to make this new one stylish, much more premium inside, jam-packed with interesting features and, purportedly, sportier to drive. You can order the new Micra from this month, with deliveries starting next spring, but we’ve been granted access to this pre-production car for a sneak preview. It has what will be one of the most popular engines: an 89bhp 0.9-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol. So is it destined to get to the top of the class? What’s the 2017 Nissan Micra like to drive? This is the same engine that’s used in the current Renault Clio, in which it feels a little sluggish. Not so in the Micra. Put your foot down and it zips along quite happily, giving you the performance you need not only for town driving, but also for comfortable motorway use. A big part of this is due to the solid swell of shove provided from low to mid-way up the rev range. It’s also eager to rev and, like most three-cylinder engines, quite vocal when it does, although with an agreeable thrum. It comes with a manual gearbox and five well-chosen ratios that do a nice job of keeping the engine on song. Sadly, the change isn’t so satisfying due to its notchy action. The clutch is fairly light and positive, though, and the brakes progressive, so you can drive the Micra smoothly in snarled-up city traffic. In these situations the light steering helps keep it undemanding, but out on the open road it doesn’t weight up with the consistency that you get in a Ford Fiesta or Clio. Considering that sportier bent trumpeted by Nissan, this is a little disappointing, but not a disaster. It simply means that when pushing on, you can’t judge the grip levels or place the car as intuitively as you’d wish. There is plenty of grip in the dry, but we noticed that, compared with rivals such as the Fiesta, Clio, or even the Fabia, the rear end gets a little twitchy on wet roads. The result is you can’t carry the speed through turns that you can in those rivals. But, thanks to fairly stiffly sprung suspension, the body stays well controlled and doesn't suffer from the lean you get in the softer Fabia. So the Micra is sportier to drive than before, but still isn't the sportiest car in the class, despite being firmer-riding than the Fiesta and Fabia. This is particularly noticeable around town, where it fidgets more and has a tendency to crash over the kind of sharp potholes that those two rivals would cross unobtrusively. Most of the Micra's jitteriness smoothes out once the speed rises, making the it a comfortable motorway cruiser. You do notice some rumble from the tyres at speed, but wind noise is very well supressed. What’s the 2017 Nissan Micra like inside? There’s plenty of space in the front if you are tall – both head and leg room are good – and the driving position is comfortable thanks to the standard height-adjustable driver’s seat and good range of steering wheel adjustment. The dashboard is also clear, with large dials and well-labelled switches. However, rear visibility isn’t great due to the thick rear pillars and a shallow rear screen. To help redress that, you’ll need to fork out for rear parking sensors and a reversing camera, which are options on what will be the popular, mid-spec Acenta trim. A nice mix of materials cover the dashboard and interior, making the Micra look and feel cheery to sit in compared with most of its rivals, the Fabia included. You can certainly see Nissan has made an effort, but sadly, unless you choose pricier, higher-grade trims, the steering wheel is plastic and the gearlever rubber, making these key contact points feel cheap. That’s a shame, especially when much of the competition applies soft leather in these areas, and overall it weakens the Micra’s boast of plushness. The infotainment system comes with a high-definition 7.0in touchscreen as standard. It works well, too, with intuitive menus that are easy to search, and quick processing. Sat-nav and a DAB radio on the Acenta trim are a pricey £700 option, although that does include the parking sensors and rear camera we mentioned earlier. You can make use of the standard smartphone mirroring instead. This allows you use your phone’s apps, including internet radio and sat-nav, through the car’s screen. Unfortunately, when you move to the rear seats things are disappointingly cramped. Compared with the Fabia, leg room is tight and head room is downright poor, even for those of average height. The boot is a competitive size though, and, like its best rivals, it will take a large weekly shop.
  15. Hello everyone, First up, I'm new here & want to know the following: Want to know if there is any specific reason/s that the new Honda Civic 2016 is not available through other dealers except for through Stafford Motors? And that, at an overblown price of 9.5 million for the basic LX version (http://automobiles.honda.com/civic-sedan#specifications) Given that other models like the Vezel and Grace are everywhere, I'm curious as to know why the Civic is not so widely available. Additionally it's got some rave reviews & has won several car of the year awards among others: https://www.honda.ca/civic_sedan/awards So yes, my question is, does anyone know why the Civic 2016 is not widely available? Thanks!
  16. The latest versions of Toyota Allion and Premio was released in mid-2016. The two models has come with significant design as well as technological improvements. This time, Toyota has blurred the boundaries of the design in both of the cars and given a one common overall design to the front and the back while specifying 2 different levels of detailing and trim. Despite that fact, the design this time is really impressive. Firstly, let's watch the video that we did as the comparison between the two cars. The 2 cars have been built on the same chassis as the predecessors', the NZE-260. but in the exterior, the hood (bonnet), front fenders and the front and rear buffers have been redesigned with different levels of detailing. The front lamps are LED including the head lamp. Tail lights are a combination of both LED and conventional lighting. The ground clearance has also been increased a bit which is a better sign. This time, there is no "G-Superior" in the Premio. Instead the "EX-Package" as the highest option level in the Premio and G-Plus in the Allion. In the video, there are those highest grades. The Premio that we took to has the New body colour which they call it as "Dark Red Mica Metallic" which is more Redish than the wine-red of the out going version (Different colour codes). The white is all the same and it is the Pearl-white (metallic white) in the video. The 2 cars are equipped with more sophisticated technological aspects. Mainly the safety features like, High Beam Assist: Which will control the high beam (Head light) by it self. When driving at night, due to the HBA system we no more need to put the lights into Full or Dim. When a car is coming towards, the system automatically dims the light and immediately after its passed, the lights are put into full. Lane Departure Assist: The system will give a warning if the driver is crossing between the lanes unsafely. The display in the dashboard displays the regarding information. Pre-Safe Collision Assist: The car brakes by itself if the driver did not take necessary actions in the situation where a collision could happen. The system works under the speed of 50Km/h. It is the Same as the CTBA which came in Honda. Additionally with the ultra sonic sensors on the front and rear bumpers (buffers) the system detects if there are short collision objects even when the car is moving in a tight parking lot. The system boosts brake even the driver has applied brakes slightly which would not sufficient to stop the car. The on dash display visualizes how close you are to a collision object. This time they have added the Engine Auto Stop function which turns off the engine when it is in idle in order to maximize the fuel efficiency. For an instance, when you are waiting for the green light, The Auto Stop will work until you take the foot off the brake pedal. Immediately after the brakes are released, the engine comes up and ready when your foot reaches the accelerator (no delay).
  17. What will be the best bang for buck at current market prices? Looking for something that's manufacturing year is at-least 2010. There are some of options such as Audi A4 2011 (B8), BMW X1, BMW E90 facelift. Is Audi A4 B8.5 within my budget? Or anything else that I can consider?
