  1. Sometimes I feel like going to a owner with a good condition U13 or a Presea and tell them "Sell your damn car to me oi, you drove this enough"

      I hope there's a good therapist with a mint condition Presea. And I pray to God that you see that Presea very soon!

      Hey! How have you been? I wasn't active much during the second half of last year. I'm around now, just that I haven't found any interesting threads to post in recently. 

      Thanks for checking. 🙂

      @PreseaLover I'm still lurking around bro. You know me off the forum ne. 

  3. I have a strong feeling that in February, some car will appear and I will buy it. Very strong instinct! 

  4. Guys guys I really want to by a U13. The interior is so damn nice. Unfortunately there are no Auto, Petrol U13's advertised for the past month. Sigh

  5. Car advertisement sites should add a react button to each advertisement people post. I mean Who would sell a 93 model Presea for 22.50?? mileage tampered to 48k also.. jesus man

      Its quite a common occurrence on the Starlet groups unfortunately, recently there was a GT for sale that was completely restored and completely built (TD09 Turbo, D2 Brakes, Fully Built Internals and WEPR everything) I think his asking price was somewhere close to the 3mil mark (Bone stock Glanza range) and he got haha'd to oblivion. 

      But I can see how the other side to this argument exists as well

      The issue is...in a market place like Sri Lanka, most of the people liking or disliking the advert would be brokers and their goons..and then pundits who don't even have a bloody license and just graduated off their chilin-chilin bicycle. So...there is a good chance that good cars get ridiculued out of good descriptions and prices just so that these morons can push through their dressed up junk.

      @iRageyeah invain, I should have sold my Presea for 30 lakhs. 

  6. If the seatbelt indicator shows in the dashboard even though the seat belt is ON, is it a fault we should worry about? or is this a minor thing?

    1. HaeylM

      Most probably a faulty sensor in the seatbelt latch mechanism or just loose wiring under the seat. I had the ABS  light up in the dash due to moisture under the seat :)

      Seat belt light, especially on these older cars, is not anything too serious. 99% of the time it is a matter of the sensor going bad or the cut off on the belt lock going bad. Usually happens because dust gets stuck etc....if the car has pretensioning seat belts...then again it could be with the sensor and cut off switch or it could be one of the sensors or  the entire pre-tensioning system.

      Had the same situation, I think the sensor under the seat has gone bad. It miraculously fixed itself (not sure what I did though)

      Alternatively: Embrace it, paste that sticker that says "No Airbags, No Seatbelts We Die Like Real Men" 

  7. let alone an engine, im unable to even find a presea to drive
  8. Went to buy a car with cash in hand. Last minute changed my mind and came back. An afterthought crossed not to buy it. So back to square one. 

  9. Guys.. lets say I'm going to update revenue license and the book is still under the previous owners name, and the previous owner resides outside of colombo. Should i go to that division of office relevant to the previous owner's city or can i do it from anywhere else?
  10. Guys i have a question. When getting the no objection letter from the previous owner, should the JP who is signing it be from the same area the owner resides or can it be an ALL ISLAND JP as well?
  11. Cant be. I have a friend whose father still owns a presea he bought for a permit in 2003 and it was a 96 model and he is not a politician. He wasn't a retiring officer back then either.
  12. My Presea colour preferences changes every week 😕 Now I want to buy a wine red presea and paint it with the "romanticrot-metallic" color code

      WTF is going on here? I mean I get pharmacy mentioned in a post presea lover is involved...but still.

  13. Thanks mate. I'm not buying this car. Because the climate control A/C Panel is not displaying and that part cannot be found anywhere in the shops in colombo, neither in yahoo auctions. Without that there is no point of buying this car 😕
  14. Can someone tell me what this special condition means in a vehicle CR? Note that this is a 1995 model car with 2003 registrations, and is the 2nd owner. He said he cant remember what this is but also said that by the time he went to register the car under his name in 2011, the previous owner also had to come with him to RMV in order to handle this condition and transfer to his name.
  15. Jesus died for our sins too, so if he can, why not the people around us do too
  16. I see my old White Presea back on sale again. But I can't buy it. 

  17. I replaced the windscreen in my presea 2 months ago from Galle Windscreen. They come to your house and repairs it. costed me 15k.
  18. I have a thing for Presea's that has run over 250k km's. The higher the mileage i find it amazing and attractive. Hard to find a Presea with over 250k mileage noh :( All are less than 200k :(

      mostly yah. sold my 19 year car with almost 223k km on the clock (genuine millage)

    3. Hyaenidae

      Hyaenidae

      Me too but only if it was me who put that 250k kms on that odo, starting from zero mileage :D

      Haven't managed to do that but am getting there, slowly but surely.

      It has to be me who made her sag and gape!

    4. PerfMad

      PerfMad

      In my case it would be highly unlikely scenario as i would love to change cars every 4-6 years

  19. Did anyone else notice that every month the old car prices increases from 1 lakh? 🙄

    1. Hyaenidae

      Hyaenidae

      No surprises there, the number of cars offered for sale keeps dropping - consequently, prices go up and up

  20. Guys how much does the Auto transmission of Honda City 2001 model does on fuel? (Not for me) Will it at least do 8?

    1. PerfMad

      PerfMad

      It should do more or less around 8-10 in city limits with average traffic. My Manual VTEC did around 11-12 in city limits. Depends on how u drive though.

  21. Its a pity that new cars don't have nice interior like they had for the 90's Nissan cars. 

    1. PerfMad

      PerfMad

      i would say newer cars interior and exterior bits ain't solid as it used to be back in the day.

  22. But I'm looking for the Auto, Petrol and the Sunroof version of the SU13.
