  1. Actually the last set of shocks I got from T**S were for my parents 141 Corolla they were perfect fit. Bought over the counter with only vehicle model and year.
  2. Agree with Mr. Sylvi even I have been dealing with them may be for over 30 years now never had any bad experience. I'm not trying to trying to justify giving the wrong part. Sometimes when they do not have the exact part they tend to provide a compatible unit. However they advice your to bring the old part to ensure that it measures right. In hindsight knowing the part may be different, either you or the mechanic should have compared the with the old part before fixing it.
  3. I have a POCO X3 NFC. Bit of a heavy and bulky phone over my previous Galaxy M30S Did not see much of a difference over AMOLED of the M30S on colour accuracy. 120 Hz on the POCO is better if you are into games. POCO is a faster phone and has better chip set and does not lag when gaming like the M30S Bit concern on data speeds as there were few issues reported. Do not know whether it is the phone or our service providers.
  4. Totally agree Had a CE100 and now a NRE-210H. Brilliant everyday car
  5. I feel your pain i went through the same situ few years back. Luckily for me they had the part in stock.
  6. This is a common problem with Kia. Throttle body get carbon deposits and the sensors gives faulty readings. Can goes in to limping mode and will not rev above 2000 rpm. Cleaning the throttle body some times rectify the issue but Kia recommends replacement especially if the car is under warranty. If you do a third party repair it might nullify your warranty. Suggest you get Kia to do a throttle body clean until they get the spare.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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..
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. It says Gasoline Additive made. Branded Porsche. No other clue in the container other than safety infomation
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Agents have Bridgestone on promotion check them out they might have stock. Check on manufacture date they could be disposing old stocks
  20. 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.
  21. Quote from Jurassic Park "Life will find a way"
  22. Agreed UK regular is 95 and super 98 and most of the cars in UK is tuned for 98. Mine being the JDM is happy to run on 92. According to CPC (from a well informed reliable source) they purchase fuel from different sources that meets their requirements. So there could be certain additives on some of the stocks. Any also you could get crappy fuel whether it is 92 or 95. As a practice I pump only from few reliable stations for piece of mind knowing that your fuel is not mixed with "Bhumi Thel" or 95 with 92. On my Macan I'm compelled to use 95 (minimum requirement) instead of 98 (recommended). Additive is used every 5000km as recommended by the agent. All our family Japs whether JDM/ Domestic, Naturally aspirated/ Turbo/ Hybrid runs on 92 without any issues.
