  1. 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.

  2. Screw you dialog tv.... Where the heck is Discovery Turbo? There aint no channel 86 and your customer service sucks still waiting online for them to answer.

      Hmmm...strange...it did not update all of yesterday...then it was updated this morning. But since morning till now the updated threads list has not changed although there are threads that have gotten updated.

      I wonder if there is some sort of update interval. Tried clearing the cache at my end..but nothing...no change what so ever

  8. Tomorrow is going to be a sad day saying good bye to a friend whom I knew since 2004 and my daily ride for the last 3 years. Hope that whoever is lucky to get her will enjoy and cherish her and drive her like how she should be driven.

  9. Anyone watched Clarkson's Farm? Leaving aside the man, it shows how other countries have grown in terms of farming and makes you want to start a farm of your own.

      Well you see he would have made more money if he didnt have to spend money on the hired hands and his other ventures. His costs included the Farm Shop (building), fish pond and his vegetable patches. Also you got to understand that bad weather hampered the crops and lost about GBP 90,000/- there compared to previous year.

    3. iRage

      iRage

      Yes. But the thing is when you have a 1000hectars with literally dozens of fields to farm, you do need hired help don't you ? The previous guy who ran the darm also gad Caleb to work for him and Gerry or whatever. 

      Yes. He did waste a lot of money on his antics for showbiz value, but even cthen most otherc armers do not have such large farms. So their crops will be smaller thus their intake.

    4. Gummybr

      Gummybr

      Cant wait for Season2, looks to be better than Grand Tour or Top Gear. And Caleb wants it to be called Caleb's Farm.

      @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.

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

  12. Dear Hybrid owners; if you want to conserve fuel by running on your electric motor, but please do keep to a side if you are going to crawl and let the other traffic pass

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

      then it's aerodynamics and good piece of engineering and driving skills. :)

      sadly it's a very underrated car in SL most of the people don't know it's even exist. :(

      tbh its not that light, its around 1.3T, and not sure about aerodynamics either. its the surprising amount of power from a 97bhp engine. Fallen in-love with suzuki now.

      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.

  20. 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.

      It is the new Reva only under a different owner. I checked out their site and was fairly impressed with the claims but problem is what sorta bill will I have to boot if it became a daily use car. Cant claim from company as well.

    3. Crosswind

      Crosswind

      and the other problem is how many times a week u will be stranded without a charge, if u have to do Padukka-Colombo-Padukka daily?

    4. Gummybr

      Gummybr

      True that, my daily commute is about 70kms + official, meaning I will run out. Its something that manufacturers should look at, also the fact that you cannot claim electricity from office unless they give charging points at work.

      Well its a start, they better finish off those projects fast, before long bringing in parts will be difficult.

      I'd like to see a nice Cedric Club as well, but then again all the Cedrics must be rotting (except for a few).
