  1. Thank you for suggesting PAS from the beginning Supra. Yes I think directly contacting Sabry is the best option there. Good lesson learnt
  2. Thank you machan. She is definitely a keeper
  3. Didn’t have any issues related to Exterior and Interior at all. But had some issues related to suspension components and few oil leaks in the engine which are quite common for most of the carina GTs we have in the island today. 160000KM was on the clock at the point of swap. But didn’t notice any under compression issues. I wanted to use this for a longer period. Therefore wanted to take it to its brand new condition ASAP and enjoy what she has to offer . That’s the rationale behind the swap machan. And one more thing, when I saw the car in JP could not stop myself buying it as it was just 360
  4. Thank you friends. Really appreciate your support . Car is running with 100% factory specs. No modifications done at all except the DVD player .Used Toyota oil for Power steering and Break system and Toyota super long life coolant was used as the radiator coolant. However Used Castrol GTX 10W-30 for the Engine oil. Many of my friends including PAS asked not to use Toyota engine oil on high revving engines as they say Toyota oil form more sludge (Don’t have much idea on this belief though ). I’m thinking of using a fully synthetic oil from next oil change onward. Do you all think using Cas
  5. Yes Suharshan...I was there for sometime...was waiting for a friend.
  6. This is her current look after completing all the work.
  7. Swapping work going on at PAS
  8. Dismantling the car in Jp.
  9. This is the car i bought from Japan.
  10. Here are some pictures guys. This is how it looked like before the swap.
  11. Hello guys, 1st let me apologize you all for taking long time to reply to this. Was buys with some personal commitments, hence the delay. So finally I decided to go ahead with PAS as I did not get favourable responses from other joints. My parts arrived in the last week of July and PAS did not accept the car to begin the work until 1st week of Aug as they were busy with some race events. However finally when the real work started they assigned two people permanently (2 very young guys) to do the work and another well experienced chap was working time to time when serious work w
  12. Hi Miraj, I've been using an Axio Luxel (Alpha edition) 2008 for almost four years now. Can recommend this model without a doubt. It has done about 80,000KM now & only trouble it gave was an issue with Alternator pulley. Was able to source parts for the alternator from Delkanda and later on managed to find an alternator from Japan and bought it down in case if needed to replace. (An expert said, for Luxel and for KDH vans this alternator issue is a known problem) It does about 10-10.5KMPL in the usual Colombo traffic and 19-20KMPL in the highway and in other outstation areas does
  13. Yes agree. It will anyways take few weeks to get things back to normal, I'm not in a hurry to do this, but I felt asking four days just for the replacing work is bit too much. Thanks for the valuable info and recommendations. I'm yet to hear from Replica Speed. Will update here the progress of the work.
  14. Supra & Ghostwriter: I visited PAS this weekend and had a chat with them. They said they can do the replacing of engine + gearbox + front and rear suspension + Steering wheel within 4 days. But I personally think it won't take four days for this work, because my parts are arriving as a bulk unit, not as individual parts. i.e: engine removed from the car with gearbox and front suspension still attached to each other as it came from the factory. Rear suspension also removed as a bulk unit. It took only one day for us to dismantle the entire car in Japan (2 people involved). PAS said it will
  15. Thank you C1nder.Found his number through FB and will call him today. Thanks Supra. PAS was my second option after Replica speed. Going to have a chat with PAS this weekend. Need to check their prices as many cliam they are bit expensive.
