  1. මචන්ලා පර්මිට් එකට කාර් එකක් ගන්න කියලා බැලුවේ. හැම එකක්ම බලලා දැන් වාහන දෙකක හිරවෙලා ඉන්නේ මොකද්ද ගන්න කියල. දැනට මම හොයාගත්ත ටික මෙහෙමයි. Honda Insight EX 2019 මේ අවුරුද්දේ අලුතින් ආපු 3rd generation එක. පට්ටම ලුක් එකක් තියෙන්නේ. Pros: Honda Sensing, Excellent fuel economy, Stunning look, AC vents for the back row and many more options that the Premio Cons: පාර්ට්ස් හොයාගන්න අඩුයි අලුත් නිසා? පස්සේ විකුනන්න උනොත් මාර්කට් value එක නැති වෙයිද? මේකේ එන්නේ හොන්ඩ වල අලුත් හයිබ්‍රිඩ් සිස්ටම් එක. ට්‍රාන්ස්මිෂන් එකක් නෑ. එන්ජින් එක වැඩ කරන්නේ ජෙනරටර් එකක් විදිහට 90% වෙලාවට. එන්ජිනේ එකට හයිවේ ස්පීඩ් වලට විතරක් කෙලින්ම කාර් එක ඩ්‍රයිව් කරන්න පුළුවන් වෙන්න තනි ගියර් ලෙවල් එකක් තියනවා. මේ වෙලාවේ ඇරෙන්න අනිත් වෙලාවල් වල එන්ජින් එක තව ඉලෙක්ට්‍රික් මෝටර් එකක් කරකවල තමයි වාහනේ ඩ්‍රයිව් කරන්නේ. දන්නා තරමින් අලුත් CRV Hybrid එකෙත් මේකම තමයි තියෙන්නේ. අලුත් නිසා මෙහෙ හරියට සර්විස් කරන්න පුළුවන් වෙයිද?, අවුල් ඒවිද? (like the dual clutch issue with vezel) කියන ඒවා ප්‍රශ්නයක්. ඒවා ඇරෙන්නේ මේ සිස්ටම් එකට මන් පට්ට කැමැති! Toyota Premio F EX 2019 Pros: ඇතුල මාරම කම්ෆර්ටබල්. හයිබ්‍රිඩ් තරම්ම නැති උනත් තෙල් වැඩ හොඳට ලස්සනයි Resale value අවුලක්ම නෑ සර්විස් ප්‍රශ්න නෑ, පාර්ට්ස් තියනවා ඕන තරම් Reliable car Cons: අලුත් එකේ කියල කිසි වෙනසක් නෑ? ගෙවන ගානට දෙන options නැති තරම්. CHR එකෙත් මීට වඩා තියනවා? Driving pleasure එක කෝමද? මේ වාහන දෙකෙන් එකක්වත් මම කලින් පැදල නෑ. කලින් තිබුනේ Avanza එකක්. වාහනේ තව ගොඩ කාලෙකට විකුනන්නේ නැති වෙයි. හැම සතියකම මාතර-කොළඹ යනවා වාහනෙන්. මචන්ලා ගේ අදහස මොකද්ද? දෙකම එකම වගේ ගාන.
  2. Dear All I'm looking to import a car for the 3.6 mil permit, budget between 4-6mil. Will be using it for a minimum of 2 years. I was thinking of the Honda civic 1.0L but rethinking that because of a) Ground clearance - 135mm may not be enough as not limited to the city? b) Have to get the Tech pack (highest grade) because others have no value for the permit. So looked at the corolla sport (maybe better resale value, same ground clearance) and the mazda 3 (which may not have the same resale value?) Any thoughts? Am I overlooking any other options? (not too keen on the CH-R) Thanks in advance
  3. Dear Friends I’m importing a Peugeot 3008 under my permit through “Car Mart. Their procedure is as follows. Car Mart (Pvt) Ltd issued a Proforma Invoice to me and I opened a local LC to them. Then Peugeot-France issued a “master” Proforma Invoice (for several vehicles) to Car Mart (Pvt) Ltd and Car Mart opened a “master” International LC to Peugeot. In following three documents, my name is correctly mentioned as “Amara******” 1: Permit 2: Proforma Invoiced issued by Car Mart, to me 3: Local LC opened by me to Car Mart However, in the following two documents, my name is incorrectly mentioned as “Amera******”. 4: “master” Proforma Invoice issued by Peugeot to Car Mart 5: “master” International LC opened by Car Mart to Peugeot I assume that, even in the Commercial Invoice, which will be sent by Peugeot, with the car, my name will be incorrectly mentioned. I just want to know 1. Will this be a problem when clearing the car. 2. Will this be a problem when registering the car under my name. 3. What are the actions that I need to take under this situation. Your comments will be highly appreciated

  6. I’m considering Honda CR-V & Peugeot 3008 for my permit. I need to get some points clarified. It would be much appreciated if you can help me. 1. In case of Peugeot, I Have two options. Either to buy from local agent (at a higher price for lesser options) or to import from UK. Will UK version be suitable for Sri Lankan conditions. (Especially for Petrol, Temperature range, humidity & road conditions). 2. In case of Honda CR-V, only option is Australian version. ( Local agent’s price & JDM price is not affordable for me). Will this be suitable for Sri Lankan environment? 3. Out of 3008 & CR-V, what will be more suitable to be used in Sri Lanka? Thanks in advance.

  8. Hey Guys, Could anyone let me know the procedure for importing a vehicle body to Sri Lanka? And the procedure for obtaining a body permit? I have an old Mitsubishi 4DR5 J24 jeep with a badly corroded body(Vehicle Number 65-xxxx). I think it will be cheaper to replace the body rather than restoring it. I've seen similar vehicles available in foreign auctions. Thanks.

  13. Hi, I have been wondering that giving a 3.6 Million tax rebate is not fair on government servants or any individuals who import vehicles for permit. I feel the government has introduced permit just for say cause of strike caused by doctors. The permit which is introduced is of no use to the importers. Is it just me who is feeling like this or any one else ?

  16. 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,

  20. Hello Experts, Excited to join Autolanka forums Waited almost for month for an admin to approve me ... anyway, whoever the admin that approved me, Last December, I sold my good old Maruti WagonR ( 2008 model, 5yrs old, driven for 30000+ Kms) For 1.6mil. I was searching for a good car to buy ever since. ( that's how I ended up on autolanka) So now that I finally got approved I thought it's time to get expert ideas on buying my new vehicle. My budget is 3.5mil - 4.0mil. I wanted to buy a japanese car and browsing the internet, Finally I decided that there are two contenders: 1. Toyota axio 161 1.3 X Grade (2013) 2. Mitsubishi Lancer EX 1.6 GLX (2013) Both the cars ( Brand New ) are being sold for 3.5 mil. for the permit. ( Lancer : 3,460,000 to be exact) My priorities are: -RELIABILITY -Fuel Economy -Spare Parts Availability -Safety And comfort -Handling -Looks - Resale value Axio Dealers are mainly bragging of TOYOTA Reliability and Spare parts availability. They assured me I'm in deep trouble if I choose a mitsubishi because there are no spare parts in local market and I would have to buy spare parts only from agent paying a huge amount of money and I have to wait till eternity for mitsubishi agents to import parts from japan. And they also mentioned that unlike axio, I won't be able to sell the mitsubishi for a decent price. (if I wanted to, of course) I called mitsu agents and they say they have spare parts for any vehicle they sell and I don't have to worry. However the sales guy said he have no idea on 3rd party parts availability. So as you all can see i'm in a dilemma here. If you were in my position which car would you buy? And please be kind enough to mention why.. This is my first post on autolanka, so please go easy on me if I have offended any rule. Thanks in advance.
  21. Hello everyone, I'm suppose to get my first permit next year and my husband like to upgrade our car. But we both are new to car permit thing and both have CRIB records. May name is in CRIB because of unpaid loan and My husband is in CRIB because he was a granter for a one of his Ex-coworker's unpaid loan. We plan to buy the best car we could for cash and which is probably be in range of Toyota 141. Now we have Toyota 110 I like to know whether this CRIB situation affect my ability to 1. Import a car as other permit holders do. (Can we open open a LC if our account has money in cash?) 2. Can I sell permit so that some one else use it to import a car in his/her name directly OR does selling permit means I have to take LC in my name to import a car on behalf of the person I sell permit? 3. Any advice on CRIB thing? 4. What can I do to use permit if 1 and 2 are problematic with CRIB? Thanks in advance and sorry if I'm giving too much information.
