  1. Hi all! I`m planning to buy a car around 2M-2.5M as my first car. I can't think what will suit my requirements Usage: Twice a month traveling Capital to Up Country Up and Down (approx 500km Up and Down) since I`m having zero knowledge on vehicles it should be a less troublemaker. Spare-parts: should be available at a reasonable price. Resale value: I will use this for another 5 years and reasonable resale value is preferred Thanks in advance

  3. Good day All, New to the forum here ;) I'm looking to purchase a car manufactured between 1960-1990 for a full restoration project. Would love to see if any BMW e34 (1984) are available. Even a Datsun b210 is okay. Original book should be available. It doesn't matter if the car is in very bad condition as I plan on working on it from ground up. I'd really appreciate if you could let me know what cars are available. Thanks in advance!

  13. Hi all! I'm continuing to do car research in advance of purchasing my first car, ideally costing under 3 million rupees. I plan to use it for at least 5 years after the purchase. Important question: what is better economically, getting a brand new one for around 3 mil (Picanto, Wagon R etc) or buying a second-hand one from early 2000s (Familia, Sunny, Civic etc) for around 2 mill? What concerns me is that given the old age and >100,000 km mileage of these used cars, am I likely to face heavy expenses in repairing and maintaining them within the course of 5-10 years, which might make the total cost of ownership equal to or greater than the price of a brand-new one? Thanks in advance for your advice

Dual Multi functional steering wheel, but seem like it is not working(Can not volume up down) Seem like Bluetooth not support with setup. How I can connect phone to answer call?

  15. Hi, I have got my permit (yay!) and for my luck govt. changed the tax allowance as well. But now I am bit clueless what should I buy with it. I have 2011 premio and a 2004 vits of which I will be selling one. I don't like to buy a another Premio/Allion. Today when I checked with the car importers along highlevel road in K'pona/Nugegoda, they were not willing to tell me what options I have. As I understand, the max CIF value I can bring in is USD35000. What are my options in that case. My budget for final figure is 6M or less. I prefer Japanese cars because they will just take from point A to B in a reliable way but I am open for Euro option as well in which case I will have to lookafter the baby bit more sedan, crossover /SUV, I am open for anything Most of my rides are within the city and comfort is important Fuel consumption is also a factor Is there a place where I can check the prices for vehicle bringing here of permit Thanks,
  16. Hi all, I actually got a sub-woofer fixed to my 20-year-old car (Peugeot 406 d8) today from a professional auto-shop and I"m wondering whether this would mess up the car in the near future? As a note I would like to mention that, the worker who fixed this connected the amp, to the car battery. Just wanted to know, whether it would cause any huge issues as an overall, to the car or it's wiring system? Thanks.
  17. Hi, I'm a newbie out here, so please do bare with my mismatches. I'm running a Peugeot 406 (1998) at the moment, and I"m trying to insert a proper audio set with a display (inclusive of the reverse cam). I would love to have all sorts of new features in the audio player such as playing songs via bluetooth, or from my iOS etc. Some of my friends suggested me to go with Sun Lanka or Pet#o. I'd highly appreciate if you'll could suggest me a good place where I can get this done within a day with a reasonable amount. Thanks.
