      Ha ha yeah, most roads were clear. Most ppl thought the roads will be closed and there will be a massive traffic congestion.

      I'm talking of the Panadura Ratnapura Road. Colombo offices were closed so yes less traffic, rat race starts next weekonce this CHOGM thing is over.

  2. Seen on a lawyers car "My boss is a JOKER the way he pays wages is a Joke!"

  3. A guy recently walked into our showroom and was going on about the vehicles they have at home. Then he goes on to talk about the Jag XF and tells me that when you pull the paddleshifts on the steering that it gives you extra boost. I was like Whaaat? No Mr. @[email protected] at Jaguar told me so. Then I had to explain that what it does it that it goes on to manual mode when you pull the shifts when your driving. Silly sales persons.

      @Uditha; if I'm to quote the exact word "supercharges". And how do you get extra boost in manual mode? You have any Nos or something?

  4. No fairy tale last rally for Loeb. He crashes out in the first leg of the last morning. Sad way to go. It'll be touring cars next year for me.

  5. Is this a Corolla GT; http://autolanka.com/ad.asp?ID=126309 , The steering wheel and the seats looks like they are off a GT, what do you think? The price is also good.

  10. Nissan Pulsar is back with a 1.6l Turbo 188bhp engine and a 6 speed manual gearbox, sadly I dont think it will land on our shores. Its going to Australia where they will reintroduce the SSS badge.

      A 1.6t Nissan hatch would normally ring my bell, but this doesn't. Not sure why. Too tall? Something is off on the looks.

  11. http://autolanka.com/ad.asp?ID=112573 LA number on a van? Something seriously fishy.

      L numbers were issued for lorries and P numbers were issued for dual purpose vehicles regardless of what weight they could carry. Maybe they paid lorry duty and imported the van.

      Vans registered under heavy vehicle category were issued N- plates in the beginning not L- plates.

      Is it because its a diesel converted?

  12. Citroen has not been doing good this season at WRC. The reason: well for one Loeb is taking part in only 4 rallies but most importantly they don't have Redbull as their main sponsor as Redbull is sponsoring VW who are doing extremely well at the moment. So Redbull does make a difference.

  13. Having all round coil springs and disc brakes makes the double cab the most comfortable? Defender Double Cab all these but it was one heck of a bouncy vehicle.

  15. Overtaking whilst cutting the double lines in front of cops means you get a ticket, but not if the guy in front of you is a cop jeep attached to the same police station as the traffic cops, because they have to let the guy go and cant cop the guy behind him for cutting the white line. Just hope they dont send any summons notice.

      Is it really a Camry? Looks like the front from an EG8 us welded in but there's no way it can fit a camry's structure

      Sathosa Motor appointed dealer for Land Rover and Range Rover, dont worry your permit vehicles will be alright because the Frontier owner is also part of the sales operation (JV)as per the article.

      Yeah, good for access to be a part of the hardly built land rover and rangie market before the permits start selling.And the 2013 rangie, Now itself i can imagine the rich makabass unnahes going in 'em :D

      makes it look like an EG8 but it's "better than a EG8"....ironic or moronic?

  19. Wonder who is responisible for marking white lines on the roads. Its just absurd the way they put white lines and double lines where it is not needed. On the Athurugiriya Malabe road there was one place between Athurugiriya and Hokandara where you could overtake and now they have put double lines there and I saw Policemen waiting there to catch vehicles crossing the double lines. Its one straight stretch why do you need a double line? Same goes to Peradeniya Nuwara Eliya Road as well.

      Just to meet their basic objective - more cash to coffers.

      and one more thing about double lines is that when there are double lines along a hilly area they should make the side which will be used to go up the hill wider

    3. JadeyBlitzen

      JadeyBlitzen

      Even I hate the way they've added double lines all over kandy road. but the fact of the matter is we drive up those roads all the time and know where an overtake is possible and not despite the lines. someone new to the road could have a big accident overtaking if it weren't for those lines warning them. the cops are just vultures. they see a double line, they see money.

  20. Ahh the first time you take a DOuble Cab sideways. 6 people in the back tub, slippery road and bald tyres, never thought it would do it at about 30kmph. Scary moment but a calm head got me through it.

  21. Heard it on Mul Pituwa that two people have been apprehended for riding 1000horse power bikes... Seriously these media people should be told to research and show it to a person who knows the subject before going into press with these sort of stories. It was them who bloated the Lamborghini story without knowing the hard facts.

  22. Three bulbs changed and three to more change hopefully. Yellowish white glow in the dark is way better than the standard green and better clarity of the dials. Cant wait for the red LED's to come.

    1. Jaliya48

      Jaliya48

      Hey, mine are green too! I can't see anything on the cluster in the night, but it doesn't bother me much. How did you change the bulbs? What replacements did you use?

    2. Gummybr

      Gummybr

      You need to take the meter cluster out from the dashboard, and there you get the bulbs fitted to the back of the meter cluster. You twist the bulbs and they will come off. Then you will need to take the green cap which is put on top of the bulb, then you get white light.

      Problem I have faced is that there are three T5 type bulbs and the others are bit smaller. But I'm getting T5 type LED's from Ebay. So the whitish yellow lights are temporary.

  23. De Silva has given my Emporer (Corolla 110) a value of 2.2mil without even looking at the car. This is absurd!!! They dont know the condition nor the mileage how do they do it?

      Easy. Emperors are supposed to be almost new after re-assembling. Mileage is almost zero!

      Nope mine has an older KG number, and I dont drive it much given it a cousin of mine. KS numbered cars were on roads from 2007 onwards without numbers and had to pay 200k to get the registration.

  24. Prius doing 30kmph with all windows down on parliament road early in the morning. My what extremes these people go to conserve petrol.

      @terrabytetango; gave a wtf look when I overtook him on the left.

      @Cali; seriously man, you dont need a computer to tell you how much pressure you need to put down on your right peddle. It should come naturally. If you want to check or practice your eco driving pls get on to the left lane and let the rest of the traffic pass rather than sitting slap bang in the middle.

      Are u sure the guy was trying to conserve fuel or was he enjoying the view of girls doing their workouts on the sidewalk?

      Early morning going towards Colombo? Highly unlikely. If so its very sad case. Remember there being 4 people onboard.
