    Guess who bought a Lancer EX

    http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/15723-lancer-or-axio-update-bought-a-lancer-aka-the-bratt-thread/?do=findComment&comment=254150 Thought to start this with a comment I made back in 2014. "Only thing i can say is that owning a Lancer EX is my dream, if i had the capacity of buying a one, i wouldn't think twice about it." We'll that dream came true last Sunday. I bought a Lancer EX a couple of days back!! . I was lucky enough to find a good specimen imported in 2011 which had all maintenance records with the proof of mileage. The previous owner had done all necessary maintenance at the agents. Car drives great and is in great condition. Without further ado,I bring to you,,,,,, trinity's Lancer EX

    Project A72V

    Greetings gentlemen, I've always had a thing for station wagons, and now I'm about to buy my first vehicle. I chose 1980 Mitsubishi Lancer A72-V as my first ride. In a series of posts, I hope to document the process of buying a ride and then restoring it. This is the first in what will be a series of posts on the whole process. A few AL members have already done very much that I intend to do. Your feedback is very valuable and always appreciated. As said before, this is my first purchase. I'm a total newbie for owning vintage cars let alone restoring one. Call me crazy or anything you want for taking a plunge in the deep end of the pool. For a number of different reasons I have selected Mitsubishi Lancer A72-V, and I'm dead set on it. My project plan is as follows. Buy a car Mechanical restorations (instrument panel, engine, breaks, steering, a/c) Body restoration (tinker, paint) Interior restoration (seats and upholstery) Now, I'm on the first part of the project. I have tracked down a drivable one and now haggling the price down to my budget. The condition is what is usual to expect from a car of that vintage. Pros- Fits my budget In a drivable condition Clear documents (ownership, license, emission tests, insurance) Chassis is in good condition Cons- Blotched paint job. the car was painted twice in two different colors. the latest coating peels off (papadam in local language). This looks ugly. But there is no corrosion under the paint. So I'm giving it a go. some rust spots around the rear windscreen Worn out tyres A/c is not working. Belt is missing, no gas, but the compressor is there. Here are a few pics of her. My first worry is the book states color as red. Will this be an issue? (in the final stage I will paint it red. Till then can I use it without any trouble?) Thank you, Varotone.

    Mitsubishi Lancer RalliArt

    Hello Gents, After months of research and patience, I have finally found "The One". A car I have been waiting to own for as long as I can remember... a 10th Generation Lancer. What I managed to get is a Lancer RalliArt. Since this particular model isn't available in Sri Lanka (to my knowledge), let me give a brief introduction to the car. Mitsubishi introduced the 10th generation Lancer (Referred to as the Lancer EX in Sri Lanka) in 2008 and it was certainly a different Lancer when compared to previous models. From the hooded brow over the headlights that give it an aggressive look, to the matching rear end, it was a brand new look for the Lancer. Back in 2008 when Mitsubishi launched the 10th gen Lancer, they only really had two variants: The Lancer EX (GLX, GLS, GT) and then the mighty track monster Evolution X. While the Lancer EX comes with engines ranging from 1.5L (4A91) through 2.0L (4J10 and 4B10) to 2.4L (4B12), the power of all these engines were in the range of 109 - 170 horsepower while the Evolution X has a 2.0L Turbo (4B11T) engine that outputs 276 horsepower (The FQ400 in the UK has a massive 403 hp!). That's a pretty big gap right there and Mitsubishi introduced the Lancer RalliArt in 2009 to bridge the gap. The RalliArt also has a 4B11T 2.0L turbocharged engine - the same engine that comes in the Evo X, de-tuned. It outputs 237hp - that's 54 less than the Evo. It's basically ideal for day-to-day use as well as a drive along a twisty road or a track if you are keen. To put it into perspective, if the Evolution is compatible with the Subaru WRX STi, then the RalliArt is head to head with the WRX. Throughout this thread I will try my best to log detailed information about the RalliArt (strengths, weaknesses, comparisons etc.) and also share information about the journey with my car. Hope this will be helpful to someone some day. Before going into any more detail, here she is...
  4. Guys, this time it is a ‘Mitsu’. Last weekend I sold my Perodua Viva Elite after using 6 years with 80k at odometer and shifted to well-maintained Mitsubishi Lancer CS1 GLX. I was seeking a well maintained CS2 or CS3 with Automatic Transmission for months, but was not lucky enough. Two JDM units found comparatively well but no service records and might be odometer tampered. On my way, I accidently found this 9 years old girl and could not miss her even she was a CS1. Hence settled with her within a week. This CS1 is a brand new import under permit scheme and registered in 2007 December. Previous two owners were members of the same family and had maintained her with Unit#d Mot#rs and had all service records from the beginning to up to date. (I verified service history with Unit#d Mot#rs before buying and they confirmed everything is genuine) Last owner was a lady and wonder how she looked after this vehicle. Timing belt has been replaced at 45,000km considering the time factor being 6 years. Current odometer is 92,000km. Again three Autolankans were helping me; Trinity, Davy and The Don. Specially CS experts Trinity and Davy gave me very valuable advises and kept following the project. @trinity, @Davy, @The Don Thank you all guys. Here are some photos of her.
  5. How much does it cost minimun for conveting.. how long usually does it take.
  6. Guys, really appreciate your valuable inputs to help me make a decision. This is my dilemma. I have a 1995 honda civic ek3 VI manual. This is my first car and has been with me for the last 4 years. My and this car have had a good run so far. Needless to say, being a 23 year old car, there are episodic minor repairs which are getting a bit frequent, but nothing major. Within the next few months, I am to receive some cash, and I would be able to spend about 0.5 to 1 million for an upgrade, the lesser the cost, the better, obviously. I guess I could sell this one and go for a bit newer car. But as I said, me and this car have been through a lot together, and even the thought of parting with it is very difficult to handle. So here are my questions. 1. Would going for a performance upgrade for this car be a bad idea? I did some reading and seems a B16A2 swap is possible and that it would cost somewhere close to 5 laks (I am not sure about these values). I am a total noob at these stuff, and would like to know if this is worth the cost. 2. If such an upgrade is possible, what are my options? Are there better options than the B16A swap? What would be the cost? 3. If such an upgrade is not advisable, what would be a good replacement around 3mil? It needs to be a sedan and a manual transmission, and I would like to have a bit of power as well. The options I came up with were Honda civic ES3rs, lancer cs2/3, masda axela/3 and am having trouble deciding what would be better. Are there any other good options? So, I kindly request the help of the experts here, who have helped me in the past as well. Thanks in advance! Ps. Sorry if I am starting an unnecessary thread, couldn't find answers to some of my issues after going through several threads as well.
  7. I'm going to buy a Mitsubishi Lancer EX GLX 2008 with 50k millage.I'm buying it for 3.7M and vehicle is in excellent condition.It is first owner(lady doctors)car.Is it worth for this price tag?Appreciate if can you share your suggestion. Thanks
  8. Hi, I'm using a LANCER EX (2010) model. andreacently, I got serviced car from CAREPOINT. after the service " CHECK ENGINE" light indicated and I showed it to service advisor. He came and plugged a OBD reader and told me that there was a MISS FIRE and now error cleared and no problem to drive. But when I'm driving the car, I noticed a miss and car was not accellorating. thenagain I went to CAREPOINT and they checked and told me that there is a problem in one IGNITION COIL and have to replace it. but they didnt accept it as their fault. Now, I need to find a ignition coil for the car. When I checked it at Agent, it is about 28,500LKR. Anyone, knows a place to buy this item cheaper price? Is there a risk by replacing a compatible unit instead of branded part?
  9. Hi, It's being a while since my last post. But this isn't about an issue with my car . Two days back, I received a call from Unit#d Mot#rs (Mitsu Agent) on an air bag inflator unit upgrade which is FREE ! I contacted @trinity (the lancer geek) but he was unaware of this. When I Googled it then it was there/ It's a recall as per Mitsu site. http://www.mitsubishicars.com/recall I think the biggest problem agents have is that they don't have a database of Lancer owners. Since a very few take vehicles there for service etc. If someone owns a Lancer 2005 - 2007 better to talk to the agent and get it fixed. I'm going there tomorrow, so I will keep you posted... Cheers,
  10. Hello guys, I need your help in directing me to buy a good car for my need. This is going to be my first car. My budget is 2 - 2.5 million. I work in Nuwara Eliya, but my home town is Galle. At least once a month I will be traveling home and most of those journeys will be at late night to avoid traffic. Therefor I need a good reliable car which suits long distant traveling with enough comfort. Initially I was thinking about Pug 406 as they are below 2 million rupees and has enough comfort with average fuel efficiency in long distance travels. But its very difficult to find a well kept Pug these days as owners are not selling well maintained cars. Checked several cars, but was disappointed. Now Im tired of my hunt for 406 and considering to go for a Japanese car. So far I narrowed down my search to Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 (CS1 is 1300cc lacks power for my purpose) Honda Civic (Seventh Gen) Civic is bit expensive than contemporary lancers. I have noted down several cars from web ads and planning to go and check them next week. My queries are, (1) Will aforementioned cars satisfy my needs? If not suggest me better alternatives. (2) What should I be looking specifically when buying above cars (or any other one you mention)? I dont need an in depth review, just some overview thought is sufficient. I dont like hatchback cars and Indian/ Korean stuff Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you very much. Cheers!
  11. Hey mates, Im looking forward to buy a used car for around 15-18lks, & also Im not going for a Indian car since it’s not my favor. What I looked for is Honda Civic EG8 & I really love it; but some say, it’ll be problematic. does it worth, & what will be the future problems of this car & what will be other alternative car options for this price. Since this is my first car, Im really looking forward an answer from you. Thanx.

  15. I am going to buy my first car in few months. Currently, I am doing researches on following cars. Lancer CS1, CS2, CS3 - as forums in autolanka I have decided CS3 1.6 is better. Fit Aria - Not much information but most of the people are saying that this car has better fuel consumption. Honda Civic - Bit of off-budget for me. I am looking for a car for 20Mil. most of the es1 es8 cars cost more than 2Mil.( I am looking for cars after 2002.) N16 and N17 - Don't know much about this. But most of the people saying these cars have lesser fuel consumption. I need fuel consumption about 10Kmpl in Colombo. And No matter its auto or manual. I am not going to travel daily but 2 days a week from Kosgama to Kolpety (38Km). and probably twice a month I am traveling to Matara by southern expressway. So the car needs to be decent in comfort. and need to be reliable as a 14-15 years old car. I am new to automobiles. I have no experience on this subject. It would be very grateful if you help me to choose a better car as a first car. Thanks.

    Lancer Cs1 (2008 Model) - Head Lamps

    Hi All, As you all can remember, my lancer met with an accident some days back. I am going to put in to the garage on this weekend. I am going to buy the headlamp today. But the prices of right hand side head lamps are insanely high. After a good 2 days of effort, got the prices from 10 - 12 places. Agent Price (Brand New): Rs.64,000 Delkanda/Wijerama Price (Brand New): Rs.45,000 Reconditioned Lights: Rs.15,000 - 18,000 I was searching for a good quality reconditioned light. But almost all the reconditioned lights had some sort of issue (faded, deep scratches, cracks at edges etc.). Therefore I have decided to go ahead with a brandnew headlamp (yes, money matters since the car is not fully insured. But no other option since the other head lamp is in near brand new condition). Few questions for experts. 1. Are these brand new headlamps from Delaknda area genuine ones? How can I verify? (e.g. comes with Mitsubishi branded box, Mitsubishi logo or text embedded in head light) 2. Can you suggest some auto parts shops to get brand new lights for reasonable price? (even very good quality reconditioned parts shops also fine).
  23. Hi Experts., I have idea of buying a Honda civic ek3 or a Mitsubishi lancer Ck series car for later modifying purpose. but for the moment i have no expert or experience with Honda or either Mitsubishi. Currently im sticked to a Toyota and i am pretty sure that,when comparing to a Toyota , Honda & Mitsubishi must have a whole lot difference...I have heard lot of cons and pros between these 2 car vendors...some says Honda maintain cost is considerably high while Mitsubishi have a economical maintenance ETC.... Any how i much appreciate your expert advice's on helping me to decide either go for a Honda EK3 Or a Mitsubishi Ck series! Thanks in advance.
  24. I recently bought a Lancer Ex 2008 GLS which is a A/T car. I'm using 95 Octane as fuel. I can only get 8 to 9 KM/L out of it in city limits. I heard that manual Lancer EX does more than 12, 13 KM/L in city limits. My questions are Is there a ECO mode where I gain get more? Best practices to be followed(in A/T)? How can I improve? Any techniques or advice? Thanks in advance
  25. Hi All, Does anybody know about the recommended power steering fluid for lancer Ck2 (2000 model)? I have read few forums and they have mentioned to use ATF. I used Mitsubishi SP III for my gearbox. Is it okay to use same for power steering? Really appreciate your responses. Thank you.
