Ha ha then its high time for a serious father and son talk...convince him and rob his Mini...or else try another Mini.

Well i think i should not talk about the Station wagon and converted EG8...coz im dissapointed...but the only way to come over the situation is introducing a mega machine with correct tuning and let them eat the dust!!

Im sure 2006 is gonna be a hell of a season!

In the Mini event its the same...No good challange to Ajith as well.He does good race lines and handling...when Rohit was there Ajit always settled second behind and in his absence things became boring.Its rumoured that Samantha brought down a UK tuned engine and so did Dilshan!

Cheers!

Im sorry i dont know any relible mechanic down Colombo...the only person who did a satisfactory job for one of my minis in Colombo is Mr Weerakkody of Dias Garage Slave Island.He is not a Mini expert but he is a good Engineer and having good brainy mechanics.Can give more info on him!

But I always recomend Mr Ajith Hemachandra of Roadstar Motors...its worth bringing your machine to Seeduwa (only 30mins drive from colombo).

Any bodywork modification or paint work..its none other than Mr Rohith De Silva!

I tried so many mechanics and ended up draining my wallet.Only these two did good for me.take my word!

Ajiths brother Anil of Roadstar is handling my new MK6 now.Im more than happy, the way thing being done!

Remember a Mini always needs a gentle touch of a good mechanic! never let abused!

Cheers!

Mr TGN Gamini is good but he is not into professional repairs! and his availibility is another quaestion.I honestly dont know about Mr Galhenas work,Because I only Take my fleet to Mr Ajith and Rohith.

Mr Ajith is an expert with good motoring qualities.Have you ever tried his work?
