    Servicing Audi A!

    Guys, I'm looking for a place to service my Audi A1. Unfortunately Senok does not handle re-exports so I'm left with using an alternative place. do you guys have any recommended places?
  5. Hey guys! So some of you guys already saw my status and commented. Thank you. For everyone else, this is just a moment of humble brag. And a token of appreciation-to Autolanka ,for not making me a thel higanna. I joined this forum in 2012 (was reading since 2010ish actually) when I only had a rusty mountain bike with no brakes! Over the years I climbed up the ladder slowly with some very memorable cars(mostly โ€œ engris number nemei neโ€ and โ€œ market naโ€cars) .Learned lots and finally obtained my dream(always wanted an Audi Crossover) Didn't think of resale,fuel or what not. Just followed my heart! This is actually my second Audi, 1st one was an A4 B5 1800 Petrol non turbo. Had that car for 6 years with most of it parked at home due to no money to pump gas even though it did around 9 (my parents got me the car, I was 19ish and jobless) I got this baby on valentines day 2018 (weird ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜…). Paid for with my very own hard earned cold hard cash! Sleepless nights ,16 hours of work per day and countless hardships later, shes here! Its a 2018 Audi Q3 2.0T Premium Quattro. 200 HP and 210 Torque! Has all the gizmos you would ever need! Didnโ€™t go for the safety pack as I wanted to drive it, not the opposite! 0 to 60 miles takes 6.3 secs. The stock exhausts makes sounds that can put some sports cars to shame(yes it bangs,pops and chuuz). Im sure you all see in my bio near the comment top that Im not in beloved Sri Lanka at the moment! Wish I could ship her to SL,but no luck because we drive on the other side here! It does 13KMPL on the city with AC and a guy who floors it hard.BEGONE THOTS IN YOUR PREMIOS AND VEZIโ€™s ๐Ÿ˜. The traffic I drive is twice as much in SL and its hilly. But atleast no hooligan tuks, suicidal bikes and dham rajinas doing nagina on the road (facepalm) This is not showing off. Just an Appreciation to AL and the community for giving me the inspiration to do more(god know I would have bought a vitz if not for AL). But sad to see the newer generation of car buyers, makes me weep hard. Does anybody even care about driving the damn thing anymore? instead of resale and fuel? Nope, they want Sumana's and Hashani's jungi to drop while doing 100kmpl and spend nothing on Maintainance. Some pics for you guys to enjoy! Thank you everybody! @MADZ hats off for the great service boss ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Respect!
  6. Hi About 02 years ago, I've uploaded a topic almost about finding a BMW E38 7 Series, which could be said as my ultimate driving machine dream Currently, I am driving my S-Type Jag and Now I wanted to buy a BMW E38 car. Here are my wishlist a). If possible to find, I prefer a stretched look of an iL (long wheel base) car like 740iL. From my knowledge very few are on Sri Lankan roads. b) Prefer LCI (facelifted car) from year 1998 - 2001 c) Prefer Green color exterior with beige interior, I don't know if any of such is available that fits above preferences in Sri Lanka I've seen all cars (2-3) advertised now and during last year or so, but none of those are in awe inspiring condition and needs considerable attention and big $$$ to get things to work again. So please don't suggest cars currently advertised on classified sites. I am aware that, it would quite difficult to find a car that fits above description and I've already contacted several BMW service people (Prestige, Mr Milroy and -2-3 others) to find an owner who has an E38 that I may could persuade in selling. Even if you could point me in the direction of any other E38 (1995-2001, short or long wheelbase, 728i, 730i or 740i, 740il), I highly appreciate it. Please send me PM if you have contact info. Thanks again Kal-el
  7. Hi, This has reference to one of my earlier posts, in which i sought advise from upgrading from my Jaguar S type to a model within BMW E38, E39, E60, Jaguar XJ X350, etc. With valuable guidance from AL members and through my own evaluation, I have decided to go for a BMW E38 (or X308 XJ LWB Jaguar as X350 is currently out of my budget), preferably a facelifted 1998 - 2001, 740iL long wheel base car. From my limited knowledge, I think there are very few long wheel base E38's in the country, hence finding one has become somewhat of a challenge, hence I seek the help from fellow AL members. During last 12 months, there were 02 LWB cars advertised on quick sites and here on AL. I wonder who own these now and also interested to know more details of these elusive cars. Thanking you Kal-El
  8. Appreciate your expert advice on Audi A4 2011 2.0 TDI and 1.8T models. Whether these engines and transmissions are reliable? What would be the maintenance cost?
  9. Im going to buy my first car.A Kid for the car world. Im looking a car that has a premium look with good fual consumption. I have an rough idea about audi a1 Sportback 2017. Is that a good vehicle for the price with my demand ? Any other suggesions with my demand ? Price should below 60
  10. I bought a cheap OBDII adapter (ELM327 V1.5 interface) from eBay. I can connect to the OBDII adapter using the multiple software. But every software result is same saying unable to connect ECU. Any experts here could help me on this, please? And one more important thing I have recently noticed is my check engine light never comes up when I put the key ON. I extremly need help on this too, please. Vehicle Info: Audi A4 B6 2004 1.6Engine

    Used luxury SAV for 6 to 7 million?

    Hello, I am in the market for a hatchback car or a small SUV(used). I prefer a luxury car brand. My budget is about 6 to 6.5 million. As of now, my options are a 2011 BMW X1 or a 2017 Audi A3 Sportback. I'm in a bit of a dilemma because the BMW has a 2000cc engine and is diesel whereas the AUDI has a 1000cc and is petrol. Any help would be highly appreciated. Please let me know of any other options I have. Thanks in advance

  13. Hi guys.. I am thinking about getting ร  new SUV and the Audi Q5 is a possibility. It generally receives positive reviews in foreign countries but I'd like to know what it's like to own one in Sri Lanka. Are spare parts (brake pads etc.) expensive / available? Are the agents any good? And are the vehicles actually reliable?
  14. Dear members, Given the recent changes in the budget, I have narrowed my search down to the below vehicles and would like your input as well. My main concerns are comfort, decent ground clearance and maintenance cost. The Toyota Rav4 was also considered, but I would have to buy a 7+ year used vehicle which I am not keen on doing. My top picks 1. Audi Q2 1.0 Litre Turbo 2. Nissan Note E-Power 1.2 Litre 3. Honda Civic Hatchback 1.0 Litre turbo 4. Audi A3 1.0 Litre Turbo 5. Volkswagen Golf 1.2 TSI (Update: 28-11-2017) My low picks 1. Toyota CH-R 1.2 Litre Turbo 2. Suzuki Ignis 1.2 Litre Hybrid 3. Suzuki Baleno 1.0 Litre Turbo Thank you all

    Good day members!! I need your advice and opinions before buying a new car. Have searched on forum as well but still I have few questions. Maximum I can go for 9 million. But not sure which is the best. because this is my first time buying a German car. My eyes are more into Audi A6 right now. Here are my questions 01. Which is car is best for when it comes to maintenance ? Spare parts pricing ? 02. I saw many advertisements on autolanka as well . but All A6's are Diesel ? Is it hard to Find petrol one ? 03. which car is most comfortable ? handling ? 04. Price range of these cars (not brand new) ? Please give me your opinions. My eyes are more into A6 . I really love the design aesthetics and interior as well. Help me to decide! Thank you very much! Krishan
  21. Hi, Gentlemen and ladies (if there any) I currently own a S Type Jaguar (2000 model year), which is a great machine that has very unique and distinctive looks and loads of road presence, specially where I live most of the time (outside the Colombo). However, I have been thinking of trading my Jag to one of the following models. 1. BMW E38 - 740iL preferably (1998-2001) - used to be a dream car for me and still is to some extent,very rare to find. 2. BMW E39 - 525i, 530i preferably (2001-2003) - not sure if this will be a downgrade from my S type Jag in terms of looks, sheer road presence and power. 3. BMW E60 5 Series - (2003-2006) - Nice car, not many on classifieds like the F10 5 Series 4. Jaguar XJ (X350) - (2003-2007) - The big brother to my S Type. Amazing looks, expensive and very rare. 5. Audi A6 (C5) - (2000 - 2003) - also, not sure if this will be a downgrade from my S type Jag in terms of looks, sheer road presence and power. 6. Merc W211 E Class ( 2002 - 2005) - Looks elegant, may not be a bang for the buck due to high demand for Mercs in SL Since I am used to fuel consumption, parts availability and maintenance cost of premium euro's, I humbly request from you to guide on on, 1. What kind of improvements that each model will offer in comparison to my S Type Jag ? 2. Can you point out a mint condition E38 (long wheel base LCI), E39, E60, XJ - X350 that is intended for trade / sale ? 3. Other general advice ? Thanking you for your precious time.. Kal-El
  22. Hi Automobiles or cars as we used call them, has long become a commodity and are now mass produced trade items that aims to fulfill the automotive requirements of contemporary human beings, whose day to day routines IMHO, are much more sophisticated now and reflect the chaotic and busy social, economic aspects of modern societies. Due to such scenario, most of us has lost certain feel good factor and innocence that we had when we were growing up (applies more to people who have grown up in 80's and 90's). IMHO, the cars themselves too, whilst become state-of-the-art and technologically revolutionary by every passing year, has lost a certain character and enthusiasts who love cars manufactured in 90's or early 00's, may agree that, their cars has such personality and character, that most modern cars (even the current models of their favorite make) lacks and thus continues to TLC their cars with great dedication and soul. IMHO, For example, a BMW car manufactured in 90's (or early 00's) has such a timeless design aesthetics and driving a well maintained car will give the impression that, people who made that car has such attention to detail, workmanship, passion and are mostly assembled in original factory of the maker. Now a modern BMW for example is mostly put together by robots and are mass-produced items in countries like India or china (no offense to the countries) and during recent ride in a 2015 5 series, I got the impression that, whilst the Car is modern looking and dripping with latest technologies, it lacked that certain character that old ones had and I got the impression that some of the materials used in the new car may not be durable as the ones in older cars. No I cannot afford a 2015 BMW for the time being I do not intent to discourage anyone from buying one. Also I do not intent to undervalue the brilliant tech or modern aspects of new cars, However, my heart always races when i see a mint condition older car (exclusively euro car as I am an euro car enthusiast) on the roads and I don't get the same excitement when I see modern cars. It may be just me or do you also happens to have same feelings for 90's cars. Sound off in comments below Cheers,

  25. Hi Guys, Seeking for your expert openion in buying/ changing my car. My budget is 2.7 M and my expections are Low maintainance Economical (around 10 - 13 kmpl) Resale value My initial idea was to get a Honda Fit Hybrid (2nd hand) but thought its maintainence and battery replacement will cost me a foutune. Audi A4 - 2003, Mazda - 2004 caught my interest, will be great if anyone out there who is using a older model give some pointers on the Fuel / Maintainence / Spare Parts cost on these models or on similar range. I'm looking for a somwhat bigger car. Hope to see your expert openion on this. Emac
