  1. Hats off to @AVANTE for the comprehensive review and overview regarding the car. I am also in same boat as the OP, as I am looking for a 406 D9 with around the same budget constraints. @Shenath Silva and @san1985, Did you guys buy a car? I've been looking for a D9, but I couldn't still find one in decent condition with the maintenance records.
  2. Good thread - I am also sort of in the same situation 😊
  3. I'm sorry for bumping a rather old thread. I am looking for a GP 2008 (or newer), and could I please know whether any of you have a Grande Punto for sale? Thank you! Stay safe! 😊
  4. Thank you very much bro for bringing up the part number. It was definitely helpful for me. I have still not started hunting for the part, but this put me in the right direction. Thanks again. Based on what I found, I think that the part for Rush will match perfectly for Terios as well. Thank you @Devinda_Z. It's great to know that you have bought from them previously. It seems that I can get the part for about $29 via Aramex. What shipping service did you use? Did you have to pay the import duties/custom clearance charges yourself or did the shipping agent do it all for you? Thank you
  5. One of my close friends owns a Daihatsu Terios 2007 and he has lost one of the covers that encloses front-right end-fitting of the roof railing. He is looking for a replacement and I was wondering whether you guys have any idea of a place where I can find the replacement covers. I am pretty sure that if I am to buy this, he will have to at least buy all four covers together and in the worst case, he might have to replace both railings. The following figure will give you an idea of what I am looking for. What he has lost is the right-front cover and the image with the caption "correct one" is just the right-rear cover. I found the following image from one of the popular china-based online stores and this is somewhat similar to what I am looking for (the parts of image given in the following image, apparently fits Toyota RAV 4 and the seller does not ship to Sri Lanka anyway)
  6. thanks for sharing your experience with us. You answered all of the questions I had. Definitely, I don't have problems with Korean cars, the only concern lies with what I have heard from people who underestimate the potential of Kias and Hyundais. It's just that I want to know the real experiences so that I do not have to worry much about what other people say. Truly, the people who say rubbish about korean cars, have not ever driven such cars which is the sad part.
  7. Bumping an old thread. Guys what do you really have to say about Kia Rio 2003 (Facelift Model) ? The car looks in excellent shape for the price and I really need your guys' advise on this car. I want first hand experiences and not from those who haven't even driven or been seated in a Kia Rio. Even if it's the Kia Rio older version, it does not matter. Just tell me your experience with Kia Rio. And, one of the persons had mentioned about Spectra. If more people have more comments regarding Spectra as well, please express your views. I need to know about Hyundai Accent as well. I will ask it somewhere else because this thread is related to Kia. Thanks!
  8. Obviously having an Android Car Navigation system is always a better option for me with the amount of features it brings you. And the customizability is also a plus point for android enthusiasts. What I observed was that Android Navigation systems are much expensive. I have this idea of using a 5" or 6" cheap chinese phablet to fit it inside the car with a double din frame. It won't be easy though but it will give you immense pleasure if you can do it yourself. You will obviously have to get someone to do the frame neatly in the standard double din size. You will also have to do some wiring as well, so overall it won't be easy. But you can have a car-phone as well It might cost you around Rs. 12,000/- maximum for the whole procedure given that chinese 5" mobiles can be bought for around 50$-60$
  9. Speed? I think he has reversed it with a far greater acceleration, thereby causing the big damage. It's not that he has gone reverse linearly, but trying to reverse the car while keeping the tyres turned to left hand side. I was not there. Well I will keep my attention on the numbers you provided and will see how the things pan out. Thanks again mate! Definitely yea! Not only the front, even the back is also longer I guess. We earlier had a Nissan AD Wagon (A Nissan family ) and this Presea is harder to park inside our garage with the amount of turning I have to do, in the attempt of parking the car. Anyway, I know you will say yes to this; Don't you find that you keep on getting attracted to the pleasure of driving Presea, whenever you drive? I mean, "Drive karanna karanna aasa hithena" type
  10. hehee good good Machan I need some help...There is quite a big damage to the front bumper of our Presea. Once my brother was trying to reverse the car, he has kept his eye only backwards, but not the front. And while reversing the car, the front right side of the car has touched a coconut tree. *ouch* *ouch*. The front of the car is not a great sight to see at the moment because it's been considerably damaged (front right side) The garage uncle asked us to request a front bumper, right signal light and another part(can't remember) from the insurance provider. Now we need to find a front bumper and a right side signal light. Will be going to check the shops around WIjerama - Delkanda tomorrow or day after tomorrow. Any idea of a place where we can find a bumper? I am worried of the fact whether we will be able to find a CT II bumper. We are not willing to fix a Refina bumper + headlights and change the originality of the car. We'll see. Thanks !
  11. What were you doing with your car for so long? :D
  12. Happy that you finally made your dream come true! Ah just like our Presea? You might have seen our Presea I saw a small dent in the boot lid of that car (the car which you have right now). Has it been repaired? Anyway, I didn't like Preseas a lot, but after seeing your car, I fell in love with Preseas in an unbelievable manner! I must say that driving a Presea is a whole lot better driving pleasure than driving any other car. Presea is in a different league! Did you see the image of the back of Presea, which I have added as the signature in this forum?
  13. Ah good good! Anyway, I just can't wait to participate for the next Presea meetup! I scrolled down through the Presea group and found some interesting images of great looking Preseas around the world. Saw your one too, posted by a previous owner Thanks a lot machan! I am not sure what exactly I want, so I will post a real image of the moulding of the car and then I hope that you guys will be able to help me figure out the exact part number I have already sorted out two part numbers, but not sure whether it is exactly what I want.
  14. I also have that issue machan...There are no leaks though. It just ruins the look of the car
