Guys, I am new here.
Want to get some advice on EFI tune up.
any one who has a Starlet EP 82 EFI model?
From where did you get tune up done?
Is Toyota lanka ok or any cheaper and good place around?
Roughly how much will it cost ?


Thanks a lot.

Lal Alawatta sucksss...if u think lal alawatta is the best mechanic for your car?? i must say think twice..telling you this with experience..once i went there bcz my car had a engine mis.Mr.potato garden didn't even properly inspect my car and assign a unprofessional uneducated mechanic.he tried various dump things which is not even related to the misfire.after one hour of mechanics bull shiting procedures he informed mr,potato garden.and the he came and told me that my car has a electrical issue it will take long time to fix it therefore he cannot do it.i asked him to scan the car for any trouble codes he replied me its a waste of time.

this is my experience i had with alawatta so i never suggest him to anyone..
