  1. Each charge was about 25KWh as i was keeping the battery between 20-80% So there was about 500 units over my usual consumption of 200 units. Instead of Rs. 42 per unit i was paying Rs. 13 for my EV charging However I lost on the initial cheap units up to 90 which believe was around Rs. 1-2 K. Now my bills are around Rs. 7-10K depending in use of a/c in the night after 10.30 You can get the rates from CEB site and work out how it will work according to your consumption. If you generally exceed 250 units TOU will be cheaper as most of the additional units over 180 will be charged @ Rs. 26 instead of Rs. 42. You need to manage use between 6.30 - 10.30 in the evening.
  2. I converted my billing method to Time of Use (TOU) when I had my Nissan Leaf. Where you are billed according to what time you use i.e. from 5.30 a.m to 6.30 p.m. Rs 26, 6.30 p.m. to 10.30 p.m. Rs. 54 and from 10.30 p.m. to 5.30 a.m. it was only Rs. 13 Car did 4-5 km / KWh which translated to around Rs. 3.0 per km Sadly no decent electric cars now so I had to replace it with a Wagon R.
  3. These taxes are collected by insurance companies. I have always paid them to them apart from the 1st one which you pay when you initially register the car/ SUV..
  4. This is absurd. There is no tax for computers in SL. They only charge PAL which is 4 or 5% of CIF I paid approx Rs. 12K on a Computer valued Rs. 240K (CIF). It came direct with full invoice value declared by the seller. Double checked to on the duty through a contact in customs who confirmed that duty was correct.
  5. Do agree on the looks Rear quarter panel remind me of Nissan Looks as if they are moving away from 911 styling clues to more SUV/ Hatchback looks.
  6. I had one from A*** T**** for the last 15 year with only one service to replace a pressure valve around 4-5 years back. It is a 200L with copper tube and pipes.
  7. Duty will be very steep as the car is less than 10 years old. It may be not worth at cost + duty Please get documentary evidence on the duty to be paid before you jump. Or better still you quote for price + duty and let them pay the duty and transfer the vehicle to you. Good luck
  8. It says Gasoline Additive made. Branded Porsche. No other clue in the container other than safety infomation
  9. As far as I know 1.5L CRVs are all made in Thailand and exported to Sri Lanka, Japan, Australia. They have different specifications and features according to the market however mechanically identical. CRV Hybrid was assembled in Japan as far as i know. Made in Japan story was made by importers to sell their vehicles to ignorant over the Brand New imported by the Agent.
  10. I think GR Corolla will be a good overall GT car (not for the track) likely a Golf GTi, Ford RS alternate. I have been using the 1.2T and always miss that extra power and a good gear box as this time around they got ride and handling spot on. All it needs is a bit more sharper steering and may be adaptive dampers (not specified in my car although was available as an option) Hope they will retain the 4WD with 50:50 distribution and the track mode.
  11. No tax on laptops only PAL which is around 5% of the value If a friend is sending through Fed EX ask to declare value for customs as $100-200. They are not much bothered on personal packages especially Computers.
  12. We don't know when the import restrictions will be taken out We don't know what would be the exchange rate when the restriction are taken out JPY is Rs. 1.8 year ago it was Rs. 1.7 We don't know what the duty structure will be when restrictions are taken out. You are trying to sell a car with a inflated price due to current market and then at the same time buy a car which would have a inflated price due to same reason. Mathematically you will loose as the car you are going to buy has a higher price.
  13. Agents have Bridgestone on promotion check them out they might have stock. Check on manufacture date they could be disposing old stocks
  14. Factory speakers in fit may be crap. But most of the mid range models come with decent ones. If you have the basic head set change it. High to mid range units give decent sound and will accommodate SD cards, USB and connection for the phone. Sadly radio only up to 90/93 MHz Much better than Chinese crap with belec sound.
