  1. Dear All, I’m new to Sri Lankan roads. In my thinking best means reliability, dependability, comfort and performance. Looking to buy a such ride for me around 4M. I know I can’t go for a new one matching these criteria with my budget. So I’m fine with an old car. Following are my concerns. - I have 3kids in the family so the car has to be bigger or it has to be a SUV - I don't have much time to hang in the workshops, So I expect a vehicle not fragile with less frequent repairs. - Parts must be available; it doesn't have to be in every shop here and there. but at-least in couple of shops in the country (doesn’t has to be so cheap, but available) -Availability of reliable workshops; I can’t afford IWS or D*MO; but it doesn't has to be cheaper like a normal garage - Having a fuel efficiency of at-least 6km per liter - I don't care about the registered number -having some resale capability (at-least within 4 months) What I understand from studying a bit, different models of the same car have huge gaps in reliability and market price in Sri Lankan roads. As an example W211 E200 Komp has more market value that E240. Highly appreciate if you can guild me and suggest few options/models. Country of manufacturer doesn't matter.
  2. Do we have a thread for Euro car news ? Spy shots of a mysterious Volvo These spy shot were taken a few days ago in Sweden. The thing is an exact look a like of the P1800. No one seems to know for certain what it is as Volvo had not officially announced anything of the sort (even if they did why the heck would it be a replica of the P1800 ?). Assumption is that it is a special one-off model Volvo will be releasing to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the P1800. As you can see the front-end is slightly different and it has a wider stance. Apparently the car is owned by Cyan Racing (tuner shop for Volvo/Geely)....so hmm... https://www.motor1.com/news/435966/volvo-p1800-prototype-spied/
  3. I’m looking to buy an Audi A4 B8 with an in-line 4 petrol engine. This is my first European car. Anything specific to look for when buying a second hand A4 and any common issues particular to the TFSI I4 ? How well does it drive compared to a BMW F10 ? Fuel efficiency is not a deciding factor for me. Parts availability , maintenance , reliability and driving pleasure are key factors. Thanks in advance.
  4. 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
  5. 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

  10. Hi, I have narrowed down three models for the current budget of mine which is below 4.4m They are, Toyota Vitz 2017/18 Suzuki Swift 2017/18 Audi A1 2016/17 My plan is for casual use on weekends and some weekdays. Which would you recommend for overall comfort nd driving. (If I have missed any model please tell me as i am still on research stage).
  11. Experts here, Looking for expert advice regarding rough idle and EGR, EVAP failures on my car Audi A4 B6 2004 1.6 engine. I have sporadic rough idle. When I scan, I found two issues. EGR System Regulation Divergence : P1403 - sporadic 008-Implausible pulse Potentiometer for EGR (G212): Signal too Low : P1443 - sporadic 007-Short to ground EVAP - failed When I talk with my service provider (not the Audi agent), they didn't worry about EGR issue and told it is exhaust gas related so to ignore it. They didn't say anything about EVAP (I also forgot to ask it later ). When I study about EGR and EVAP, I found that these two can contribute to rough idle too. I have sporadic rough idle and I have sporadic failures (both I don't like at all). So I feel these two could contribute to the sporadic rough idle my car faces. Interesting thing is that so far I didn't feel this rough idle when the A/C is ON. But my service provider seems they are not interested in fixing these two. My question is, do I need to worry about these issues and pressure them to fix? Because I feel the sporadic rough idle would be fixed by fixing these two? Thanks in advanced.
  12. Hello everyone. Looking for some direction regarding buying a used SUV. I have shortlisted the following and would appreciate it if anyone who owns one or has any experience can give me some feedback to make a decision. Or any other potential vehicle I have missed? Honda CRV (2014/15), Honda Vezel (2016/17/18), Nissan X-Trail (2015/16), Audi Q2, Suzuki Vitara Boosterjet (2019), MG ZS. My priorities are reliability, practicality, resale value and driving pleasure (in that order). Not very fussed on fuel economy. Concerns about the Vezel DCT and X-Trail transmission issues.
  13. I am planning to buy 2012 Audi A4. Appreciate your expertise advice on A4 2.0 TDI and 1.8T. Please state the things that need to look for, common issues, transmission oil change interval, service interval & maintenance cost.
  14. which one is better 1.bmw 520d 2013 2.audi A6 2013
  15. 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 “ engris number nemei ne” and “ market na”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 🙏🏼😅). 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! Didn’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 VEZI’s 😁. 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 🙏🏼 Respect!
  16. 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
  17. 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?
  18. 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

  20. Hi guys.. I am thinking about getting à 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?
  21. 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 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
