  1. Same thoughts here. Verstappen is the better driver IMO. I'm rooting for Sergio Perez this year after his amazing 14 overtakes from last to first during his last race with Racing Point. I've watched that video so many times. Here it is: His first race with RedBull was also absolutely amazing given that he had car trouble, started last and finished 5th with 19 overtakes or something insane like that.

  3. Good job @PerfMad! 👍 One thing I'd recommend is using a heat resistant (or high heat) paint. Especially on the valve cover. Regular spray paint tends to burn/fade/flake under the extreme heat of the engine. This is relevant to brakes as well because the front brakes do get extremely hot. I remember there was a brand named Leyland that had high heat paint in rattle cans. I got mine from Roxy paint centre in Wellawatte in front of the... you guessed it - Roxy cinema. 🙂
  4. Yep, they'll fit without any issues. For that rim, you should probably go for a 225x40R18 tyres. What size tyres are you running on the Lancer GT rimes at the moment? The Evo X BBS rims look exactly like the ones in your photo. They are 18x8.5 +38 offset, and a more aggressive fit. This is what I have. You'd have to use 235 wide tyres. If you go higher than 235, the rears will rub on the wheel arch on load. Especially since your car is already lowered.
  5. I like where this is headed! Interesting build after a while. Keep us posted!
  6. The Online Registered Vehicle Information Service offered by RMV lets you pay 150 LKR to obtain full details of a vehicle including current owner's details. However, I don't think this works for vintage numbers like EY series. You might be able to directly contact RMV and ask them if you can get any information on the car? Maybe ask if they have a over-the-counter service where you can pay and obtain information? Good luck!
  7. Congratulations on the purchase. Can relate to all of the symptoms described at various points of my history of car ownership - except maybe the lack of a handbrake lever. Good luck in restoring her to her former glory.
  8. What @speed8 said! You can check if the cooling fan is faulty by switching on the AC. The fan should switch on and off automatically with your AC compressor. If the fan doesn't turn on, it might be a faulty fan, dodgy wiring or a loose connection. As for coolant flowing back to the expansion tank when you lift your foot off the accelerator, it could be that you are using a wrong radiator cap where the cap is below the recommended pressure rating. It could also be because your thermostat valve is removed causing coolant to flow more freely and cause excessive pressure in the top coola
  9. Great pick! Congrats! PS: The slogan on the rear number plate holder though 😁
  10. Try Mazna motors in Aththidiya.
  11. Both fans should operate together. So it could be a faulty fan motor or fan control module. As a first step, observe the behaviour of the fans in the following situation: - Make sure the engine is relatively cool (hasn't reached operating temperature). Start the car (AC off). Keep running for 1 minute. Fans should be off. - Turn on the AC. Both fans should turn on and run at high speed. The fans should also turn on and off with the operation of the AC compressor while the engine hasn't reached operating temperature. - Turn off the AC. Fans should turn off. Keep the car idl
  12. @Rushneli Samanthika, Welcome to the forum. It would be helpful to members if you can add in some detail to about what you are after exactly.
  13. How satisfying to watch an already beautiful icon get a makeover.
  14. Congratulations mate! Never thought I'd say this about a Yaris, but that actually looks amazing! Nice choice of colour too. Wishing you many happy journeys with it!
  15. 200k km is nothing for a petrol engine. Just make sure the mileage is genuine (it it weren't, I doubt it would be listed as 200k km, so it likely is genuine). Check emissions test certificates to be sure. If the car has a verified maintenance history and is in good condition, then there's nothing to worry about. Just do your usual checks before buying. Good luck!
