  7. Hi All, Hope everyone is doing good, Need some ideas to get the best for my need. I had the intention of buying a SL assembled Hilux SURF, I have sold my 2011 Hilux in SL and idea turned into custard now as the company operations seised. Now no other options but getting a good truck. We had some issue with D4D engine mainly related to fuel (may be due to low fuel quality in SL) was fitted with 2 filters. Had to spend fair bit of money on fuel pump and injectors put the D4D Hilux as my last option. List of trucks in my mind: TOYOTA Hilux LN166/ 167R fitted with 3L, 5L or 1KZ if available in SL Mitsubishi L200 - 2008 model 2.5 or 3.2 Please let me pros and cons on this 2 engines. Nissan Navara D40 ???????I know nothing about this model so please pass your idea Still if i have no option i would consider a Hilux D4D Requirment: Normal day to day stuff Visit 2 remote lands once a month Off roading Please share your ideas and experience, I would really like to get a LN166 or 167 but they getting closer to 20 years mark and not sure the parts. Thank you JC
  8. One of my mate paid 26 Laks for a Corolla 121 about month ago and still car is without plate. I have sold my 2010 Hilux had the intention of getting an HILUX SURF from them for 32 Laks, Now i am in a limbo with next plan.
  9. Have done this about 10 years back as below, but this is completely against the law as other members explained above. 1. Get the car 2 Chuck the tag plate 3 Remove the Rover plate from the boot, (Next to the gas tank) 4 Get a GST invoice from a parts shop for a engine included with the existing part # (I had to pay for the parts shop to give me an invoice) as they need to pay the gst to government. 5 Lodge engine number change with RMV This website or myself not taking any responsibility about this. regards JC
  10. Any of you know how much 235 x 75R x 15 BFG price in SL?
  11. This seems to be the bigger brother of Axio which is doing a fantastic job still under 10K as parents only use this if they traveling to Colombo. Lots of pull if needed and Avg showing 17 km/L but been 2.5 L engine i don't think it is that Eco but it is comfortable and powerful. I love the auto blinders at the back and cooler box (you know what i mean aye) It's worth for the money. regards JC
  12. If you talking about the Diesel get anything after 2010 which is R series engine and i have done more than 100,000km before change it by the company and had no major issues. at around 60,000 disk rotters been done in 2013 passenger side A/C controller replaced under warranty Other than that no issues at all. Check for up to date service history (This is a must) Check any DPF issues (I had no issues due to long trips on motorway) but be mind with short runs as they don't do the regeneration. R series 2.2 CRDi engine got 450NM of torque and you will feel it regards Sheran
  13. Hello Crosswind Have you heard about the power shift trans issue with the 2011 to 2015 Focus and Trend, Seems like Ausi's sue the ford regarding this. Better stay away
  14. Hello shehan874 I think with your mates you lost the spot, Why you need a 4WD? if you looking something A to B go for a car but if you want to do serious 4WD (near serious) go for the Jimny. Trust me it will follow the same tracks with LR until get stuck Cons: it is 2 door, sit's 3200 RPM at 100km 5th gear on manual also runs on bit high RPM, Bit hard to find gear box parts in SL (No issues with engine parts), ride is bit bumpy Pros: Capable 4WD, Still cheap to buy in SL compared to other models, separate transfer box, solid axle I think your mate was talking about 650 cc Jap import, please stay away from that and go for 1.3 engine and you should be all good. regards JC
  15. Keep us posted when you have the tuck regards JC
