  1. There was a discussion on FB about this with Harsha de Silva. Apparently the MoU was initially signed between VW, Senok and GoSL (thru BOI) as a three-way agreement. Subsequently, the scandal happened at VW and VW decided to backbench the idea of starting an operation in SL. Senok decided to go ahead with the project anyway and is also looking at assembling other European brands in the same plant. I guess it will be virtually the same as what Micro does, but with brands with a little more repute than Geely, chingchong, chongching etc. Inbred retards in this country need to see everything through a political angle. That's the biggest problem of this country and the reason why we can't develop. If party X does something, party X fans vehemently support it and party Y fans vehemently oppose it. Few years later when party Y does the same thing, party Y fans vehemently support it and party X fans find a million reasons to oppose it. If you remember the past, Micro started with much much bigger fanfare than this one. Even if someone starts a new Kottu Roti kade, you should be happy because at least one person will get a job.

  2. First of all, Sri Lanka is NOT the land of honking. If you think that's the case, you haven't been to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam or any other Asian country, even Thailand for that matter. Honking is relatively less in Sri Lanka compared to most of our neighbours. I am not promoting honking at all. I don't want morons who sit in front of a computer to tell the whole world that we are worst at something when we are really not. Secondly, it is very unethical to blatantly copy-paste tonnes of text. I would say it's more unethical than honking at random.

  5. First of all, Tarragon is a car sale guy. Obviously the review will be targeted at peddling overpriced pieces of sh*t like Premio and Allion. Like any car sale guy's review, it will not contain any technical depth or knowledge about the actual Japanese market (like irage pointed out). Buyers have much better options than Premios and Allions for 7.5 mn price range. So car sale guys are desperately looking for fools to sell the allions and premios.

  6. Isn't it nice when you have some kind of AV system installed already when u r spending more than 7Mil? Its up to the user to get it changed or keep it as it is. its not something that car sellers has to decide, these are all marketing gimmicks made by car sellers. Good old days we got some really good AV systems like pioneer carrozzerias. BTW, this is not a forum like elakiri, people here knows and has some taste on good vehicles.

  7. The user manual (pg 344...see attachemnt if you want to check the translation) says: <this is a lose interpretation> Hybrid system battery's (Note 1) cooling system needs maintenance. Air intake (for the ventilation system) is blocked, the filter (for the ventilation system) is blocked or there is a leakage in the air duct (of the ventilation system). Recommended course of action : go to your nearest Toyota dealer. Note 1: (It says "駆動" which is drive..so translation means "drive" battery....so I am presuming it means the Hybrid system's battery...unless there is some other battery that needs ventilated as well) EDIT : I took the following from the 2016 Aqua user manual....the 2014 should pretty much be the same...

  11. It's better to wash your car yourself. Use 2-bucket method with a grit guard Use separate microfiber wash mitts to wash top and bottom parts of the car Use a third microfiber towel to dry the car Use a fourth microfiber towel to wax the car ( I'm using eagle 1 spray wax ) This way you can avoid swirl marks 100%. I usually give a touch-less wash using my pressure washer before giving a touch wash as described above.

  12. Wow! These techs are like from out of this world. I can't recall these even existed in the past decade or will exist in the near future. Maybe that's why these cars are so expensive, even close to a brand new Audi A4 or a BMW 3 series. Keep it up your good work fellas. By the way it's too bad to hear that they dropped Premio G Superior package. As I heard there's no such grade for 1.5L version, but comes with1.8 L version. But Toyota Japan specially manufacture these 1.5L G Superior version for Sri Lankan millionaires( redi mudalalis) who are so concerned about saving some fuel on their daily 5km cruise to their business place a.K.a.redi kade.

  13. I went to a so called reputed place to get a professional service done & not to get cheated. If you do not understand the diff. of getting a prof. job done & getting cheated, bad luck. It is my wish to post my exp. anywhere any number of times, so that I expose it to as many people, for them to know the black sheep operating as five star Companies, so that genuine ones will have the business. It is for you to decide, who is right & take your own risk. Some people learn from others exp. & some people do otherwise. I went to a reliable service station, to get a prof. service & not to waste time in talking about getting cheated for 10 years. But, if a person ends up doing so, is it fun? I am not a story teller or film script writer, too. However, I will not let go any cheaters. They are accusing Ken (who is not known to me personally, too) for misbehaving, which was same with me. It is obvious that, any Customer will not accept their silly excuses & always defend our position. Once it come to a point that, they cannot stand up with their excuses, they interpret it as Customer misbehaviour to avoid responsibility & get away the Customer from their premises & not to deal with the Customer any further, to avoid paying for the damage, well knowing that, they do not come under any regulating authority & it costs more to go to courts. I challenge them to attach the CCTV footage of Customer misbehaviour, for others to know the truth. Just read the comments written by so many Customers, under the FB posting of KEN, to understand the extent of their cheating & decide for yourself. Yes, it is the Sri Lankan culture that, if I am a good friend of this black sheep & I am a part of it, I will do my best to defend my friend, without revealing it. You scratch my back I will scratch your back. Don’t get caught to this. Let the readers decide for their own, whether they wish to get cheated & put their own vehicles at risk.

  14. Sounds like the whole problem here is about the cost and is nothing to do with the quality of their service. This is like complaining about Jacqueline's Appa Kade after eating her hoppers If you don't like to spend 100+ bucks for a hopper, don't go there. Simple as that. I did a bit of a Google search on this post and looks like its been posted in many many FB pages as well as in elakiri since November. Seriously, don't you have a life????? PS. I actually couldn't find the response of the service station. Could a kind soul copy paste the response please? It should help create a balance to the story.

  16. I have some more tips regarding this. I used this Relocation kit: https://www.amazon.com/Metra-95-7017B-Double-2002-2007-Mitsubishi/dp/B00WAHKT0W This ISO to Mitsubishi wire harness, then you don't need to cut any wires http://www.ebay.com/itm/191522544916 Radio: https://www.amazon.com/Eonon-GA2154-Multimedia-Bluetooth-Navigation/dp/B01M5FR43M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480527041&sr=8-1&keywords=eonon+ga2154 I had to connect Illumination wires of ISO harness and radio harness manually by soldering and covering with heat shrink (Rs:50 per 1m at Pettah) Also I had to connect the ground wire of radio harness to break in wire in the radio to by pass video playback only when vehicle is stopped (specific to radio) There is a place to keep mic in the original car design in the dash panel. just below the tachometer. (like a place to keep speaker, with few opening lines) You can put and paste (GPS antenna with magnet will get simply attached) the GPS antenna in the cylindrical metal tube inside the radio opening I routed USB cabled of the radio to the cabin hole to use USB devices. The tricky part of the modification was relocating the AC panel, I have seen that many people are trying to unplug AC cables at the panel but it is hard and there is a possibility of breaking parts, but you can easily unplug AC cables above the pedals with just a flat screw driver. Unplug AC cables below dashboard just above the clutch in manual cars as below: Then no need to remove AC cables in the panel : Used ISO to MMC wire harness, no more wire cutting: After everything finished:

  17. I have seen this on facebook SLTV page. I think Harshan Senadhira's comment explains it. "Looks like engine ran on engine oil. This happens when the engine is running on under compression where oil seeping into the cylinders and if the engine is running too hot, it'll start burning oil and running on it. It'll increase the RPM as there's no way to control the oil supply to the cylinder and diesel engines are self ignited and cannot switch off. If it's a manual tranny, shift to 5th and release the clutch with brakes applied. That can shutdown the engine. P.s. otherwise engine stops after burning all oil possible and ceased"

  18. If it has a cable, then it could be because one or more metal wires of the cable have snapped and jammed inside the casing. First check if there's something obstructing the accelerator pedal by inspecting the area and manually pushing the pedal all the way down with your hand. Then inspect how the cable goes to the throttle body/carburettor and check if there are sharp bends and damages in the cable. If you can't find anything with the pedal and cable, unhook the cable from the engine side and try gently stepping on the accelerator to see if you still feel excessive friction. If you do, spray some WD-40 into the cable housing and keep pulling the cable from either end alternatively so that it lubricates the entire cable. You can use some machine oil or engine oil as a substitute. If the cable is loose and slides easily, it might be that the carburettor/throttle body hinges need lubrication. If not, it might be the acceleration hinges or the cable itself is damaged internally. It will have to be taken out, inspected and replaced if necessary.

  21. Most shark fins that comes originally from the factory actually serve a purpose. They're all antennas for the radio. Why Some Mazdas have it and others don't is because the ones that come with it have satellite radio I think. The others have the antenna built into the rear window. So pasting a plastic shark fin doesn't really do anything but maybe make the car look aesthetically better. The hatch already has an antenna on the roof, but not a shark fin. You can unscrew the antenna and replace it with functional shark fin if you want though,

  23. They had massive issues and some even failed within the warranty period. Yeap http://performancedrive.com.au/audi-ends-multitronic-cvt-transmission-report-2415/ Actually the audi cvt wasn't technically similar to Jap cvts. They had complains from customer on how boring their cars were to drive so they got rid of the infinite gear ratios and moved to a stepped ratio in later models. Basically it was a cvt that worked like a 7 speed auto. I don't think there would be much economic benefit lost because of this.

  25. Well it is not a difficult procedure. Only things that you should be careful about is to keep the wiper blades always attached to the arm when you remove and fixing them back, because if by chance they get released and hit the windscreen without the blades that might damage the windscreen. As for the process here is a bit lengthy copy-and-paste text from a previous discussion. Cowling comes in three pieces two small corner panels between the fender and the middle part and the larger middle portion of the cowling. Two small parts are a bit rubbery/flexible in texture. First remove wiper arms with a 12mm socket. Press and slide the two small panels away from fender side towards the center to detach them from the two white clips attached to the middle part. They will be still held between the windshield and the front pillar from their upper corner (I don't remember exactly how I removed it completely. You can leave it as it is or slide it down to detach from pillar side. Either way it is not important). There are two black plastic fastener clips with Phillips heads on either side of the middle part above the firewall. They will pop up upon turning anti-clockwise with a screw driver. Then you can take the middle portion off. Wash and clean the area below the cowling and the cowling itself with paint brush. Make sure the drain channels on either side are clear of any debris. Better use high pressure if available. Then I usually apply a UV protectant to all plastic parts after drying them. Before fixing the middle part remove the four white color slide-on clips and attach them to two small panels. This way it would be easier to put the two panels back once you fix the middle part. If you find it difficult to insert the two black fastener clips wrap a twine tread around it to gather their locking teeth and pull out the thread after inserting the clip halfway. That's it. Take usual precautions like fixing back at the same homing position and operating a couple of times off the windshield to just to make sure of their range of motion and homing position.

  26. Greetings everyone, and a happy new year! It has now been over 14 months since I've acquired this car, and during the xmas weekend I achieved two milestones. The car achieved 600kms on one tank of fuel, with at least another 80 kms remaining, and secondly I managed to get the battery to charge all the way to the top, during several downhill stints. The journey was from Colombo, to Belihuloya, and then to Ampara (Buddhangala Monastary). 3 passengers, plus enough luggage to make the car scrape on a pebble. Total mileage is only 15K kms, but suffice to say the car is still daily driven for over two hours, albeit short distances in traffic, thus the battery does get a workout. Another surprising find is that the LDA feature works *really REALLY* well on A roads where markings are clear, even on the twisty bits. It identifies broken lines, continuous lines, and the parallel continuous lines with no issue at all. Not really sure why I'm surprised, but considering this is Sri Lanka, the fact that anything works is really quite miraculous.

  29. Not true...like I mentioned in my previous comment...please do your research when stating facts and figures (which apparently have disappeared again) if you want credibility from actual car enthusiasts. Toyota had the G Superior and G grades only for the 2.0L variant NOT even for the 1.8L variant as you have mentioned. With the current facelift I believe the 2.0L now comes with G and G Ex Package. I am not sure if you have noticed, but Toyota is trimming down the grade variation for the two models (in the Premio you will notice that 1.8L grades and 1.5L grades have overlap)...that is their typical strategy for phasing out the model (in lieu for a new model or a complete exit) As for the 1.5L G Superior... the Premio dealership line (Toyopet stores) did offer an official "G Superior" package as a dealer option package for the 1.5L variant. So whilst on paper the 1.5Ls were F grade you could get an official Toyota dealership G Superior accessories package on it. Granted these options were merely cosmetic and were far less than what you would get in the actual 2.0L G Superior and G grades. To be fair to your statement....yes true...there is a strong possibility that our devious and loving car sales people (and I am sure most of them did) just made up their own "G Superior" packages for the 1.5L.

  33. Continuing the painting... I used some playing cards to prevent overspray onto the tyre. This was much easier than using masking tape and having to mask many times after wet sanding. The should be tucked in the gap in between the tyre and the rim, they stick out and don't touch the edge of the rim at all, so they don't stick to the rim when painted over. Apply a tack coat of spray filler primer and leave to dry. Apply a heavier coat of primer next and leave to dry before wet sanding. Make sure you clean the rim well with a wax & grease remover before applying primer. This is after: Next, use the 400 grit sandpaper and start wet sanding the primer. I sanded the primer all the way down and at the end you can see how it fills in small scratches dings. Use the 800 grit wet sandpaper next and sand away the very little scratches. After this step, the surface of the rim should be really smooth. Now the surface is ready to paint. Give the rim a good wash and let it dry. Apply wax and grease remover again to remove any primer left on the surface from sanding and clean the rim well. Apply a light coat of paint (I masked the rim again with playing cards to prevent overspray). Follow instructions on the spray can and apply 3 to 4 coats. Make sure you rotate the rim between coats and during painting to make sure you cover the entire surface. The colour I picked was a metallic gunmetal grey. This is the colour that is used on the rims for the 2014+ RalliArt. Looks way better than silver IMO, so went for it. This is after the first coat: The centre cap also had to be painted in my case and I wanted to leave the embossed Mitsubishi logo in silver as this is how it is in the newer models. So I masked the emblem carefully. This took quite a lot of time. After heavier second and third coats, leave the rim to fully dry for a couple of hours and then apply a heavy coat of clear. You can skip this step if you don't want the extra shine, but clear will also act as a protective coating for the paint when rocks and debris strike against the rim. This is the end result. I am thrilled with the result. This is the spot I took as an example to repair in the first post. No sign of curb damage! An optional cut and polish also can be done to give it that smooth and extra shiny look. I haven't done that yet. I think I'm going to leave it like this. At least for now.

  36. There is speculation that it is a global call. [1]. As I have mentioned before, the current Lancer is actually an 8 year old car. There are no significant differences between the 2008 Lancer vs the 2017 Lancer. While other makes (Toyota for example) competing in this segment have released at least one new model within this period, the Lancer is the same old car. The Evo is a similar story. While Subaru has released 3 new Impreza STi models since 2007, The Evo X has been the same. Being an owner of 3 consecutive Mitsubishi Lancers, this is plain disappointing. I mean if their flagship compact sedan has not been given proper revision for nearly a decade with subsequent axing of the model, I'm not really sure if fans of the Evo and Lancer will stick around with Mitsubishi. We shall wait and see how the Renault + Nissan + Mitsubishi alliance with their EV crossover plan is implemented and received by customers. 1. http://www.caradvice.com.au/511605/mitsubishi-lancer-production-to-end-in-august-2017-report/

Although Senok is the authorized agent for Volkswagen here in Sri Lanka i don't see any involvement of Volkswagen in this agreement at the moment.

The FW collision warning tends to give false alarms at long distances and the lane assist will bleep even when you legitimately overtake. I've only enabled these features to activate only when the speed is 100+. Otherwise it's just annoying. The camera has good video quality and GPS but don't buy it just for the collision warning or lane assist.

  40. Its really confusing to figure out what you are trying to say...sorry. You get manufacturer options/packages and dealer options/packages....please look up the difference of the two. I have no idea what you mean by "toyota normally doesnt offer customizations between different versions". Different versions of what ? What happens is Toyota only has the base grades and packages. The dealership line (the entire dealership line) quite often takes those base grades and offers additional packages that you can add on top of that.These packages are Toyota authorized packages. Usually the packages are offered on a particular grade/model. However, in more cases than none, some components of these packages can be purchased separately for different grades. Manufacturers like Toyota does not offer true customization. They only offer a select set of choices for each model/grade..which is not pure and true customization you might get from a European marquee. When you order a car from a Toyota dealership you pick and choose the specs from the manufacturer and then the specs from the dealer (most would not even realize which is which as they really don't need to). So when you say you order a car from scratch from the manufacturer...you actually don't get a car from scratch from the manufacturer....you get a car from scratch where the manufacturer does a certain part and the dealer does the finishing (in some cases even things like fog/driving lamps, body kits, etc...are installed by the dealer...nit the manufacturer). I don't know what you mean by the previous 1.8 came in a different chassis. The previous as in the pre-facelift variants ? If so...not true. The chassis (as you call it) is the same between the 1.5, 1.8 and 2.0 variants and entire series came on the T260 frame. The 1.5L was NZT260....NZ because it had the 1NZ engine...the 1.8 was ZRT260 because it came with the 2ZR engine and the 2.0L was ZRT261 as it came with the 3ZR engine but 261 to differentiate it from the 1.8L. In the model codes the last letter+digits identify the frame/model type..the first few letters indicate the engine....just because it is NZT260 and ZRT260 and ZRT261 it does not make it different chassis.

  49. Crosswind is right, the black one is a pre-facelift CS Lancer whereas your one is the newer facelift (post 2004) model. Also, you will not be able to simply swap the current trunk lid with the older one, because they're different and won't fit. The pre-facelift trunk lid has a straight bottom edge. Yours has a curve. This means the bumper also will have to be modified/changed and I don't think it's worth it. I think you just need a rear bumper skirt to match the rest of the car. Also your rear number plate is a square one which ruins the look of the car IMO (It's running out of the number plate space). The rectangular one looks much better. Edit: Added photo

  50. let me clarify a few things here: 1. the reason i kept quiet is simply because i didn't want to validate bullying. there is a nice way to ask something. and then you have MD and watchman. i simply chose not to reply since there's a nicer way to ask something than the way in these two, mostly MD went about things. and the initial apathy of the moderators towards this initial attitude was equally disheartening. i'm not blaming anyone here. just simply stating my reasons. 2. i am not a rich man. those who know me, know that well. i don't have my parents' money lying around at home to throw at cars. every cent i have spent is my hard earned own. the reason i stick with this garage is because they offer me the best rates, and an easy payment scheme, and that is why sometimes it takes time for them to do any work. i am not a priority, and that is something i have come to terms with. they too are not this major hifi garage and they make do with pocahontas wigwams when they must. 3. i never once said "this is the way things should be done" on this thread. or that "my tinker is the best tinker in the world" it has simply been a documentation of the work i am doing, because i love doing it. that's all it ever was. so accusations to that end, are quite frankly laughable. the lengths some people go to, i tell you... 4. the panel in question, that has led watchman and MD into a rabid frenzy, and even made JB go to the extent of saying i am doing an injustice to a classic, has been fully straightened, beaten, shape restored, and then primered over. there's no filler filling out cracks there. its just that i dont' have photos of the process because oft times i go there after work, and my battery is dying or near dead. and i couldn't take a photo. 5. this car was never exposed to the elements. it was done panel by panel, and then primered over and kept. the panels which had no rust or dents on them, like the roof for example, wasn't primered. but it was never exposed to elements, and left to rust, like some of MD's post claim. honestly it sounds to me like he's been to the garage to see my car more often than i have. 6. every panel was beaten, straightened, and shaped by hand. i removed close to 15kg of catalloy from this car. what you see is primer. there are supercut cans lying all around the garage. the one in question pointed out by MD is holding some throwaway parts from my teg inside, and was left on the bonnet by me. he may be a slow, useless fellow, my tinker, but he's the only one i've got, and i have no other option right now. so in summary, i would just like to say that the abuse that has been meted out to me on this thread may have gone unvalidated by me but wasn't unnoticed. on this day i have, simply put, had enough. so, be glad MD and watchman. because you win. i'm sure the following statement will make you wet yourself with joy: it was never my intention to mislead people, or to promote a bad resto (oh sorry i can't call it that apparently) a bad tinkering job a good one. it was, i reiterate, simply a documentation of my work, and was always open to honest crit, meted out in a helpful manner (a la forums like the 510 registry or ratsun.net, 510realm.com et al) rather than the abuse meted out here. i have never claimed that this is the right way to do it, or that i am the god of restoration. how can i when the self proclaimed resto-jesus is already here? this is my first classic for crying out loud! so yes, the tinker is bad, yes, he has done a horrible job, yes, i am wasting a car, yes i am wasting my money, yes yes yes. a thousand times yes. this is my last post on autolanka. mods, either let the Don, or whoever else has a 510 continue this thread, or shut this down, and remove my account. i'm out. thank you all for being so kind. i wish all of you every success with whatever your endeavours.
