  1. Amazing history. Thanks for sharing, as @Kavvz mentioned love to hear more.
  2. Yup. Once I checked from a local car rental joint and they were expecting Altos from 2012 above. And Peroduas/Japanese alternatives they were ok to go for 2010 above.
  3. Yes @iRage thats what I hoped. Besides I will be going for a big loan and will be stretching my comfort zones financially 😕 but now after all your comments feel its not worth. Because after paying the installment of around 150k and management fees around 15k min if I am getting around 80k its not worth. And it seems even getting that sum consistantly is not promising as well... I'v been too optimistic of consistant cash inflows in this venture. Thank you all for your valuable feedback. 🙏
  4. Thats indeed an aspect I never thought of..thanks buddy will take note of that. As @Quiet has mentioned many claim that there will be an over supply of apartments.. What do you think about that... 🙂
  5. Hi Guys, Sorry to bump up an old thread. Guess its the right thread to ask this. Just want your valuable thoughts on this. I have been thinking about buying an Apartment from Colombo, with the expectation of renting out. But lot of people advice against it with the current situation and the I myself is having doubts whether I will be able to rent it out in 3 years once its complete. Specially because, 1-There are lot of housing units that will be coming up during next 2-3 years and most are vacant even now. 2-Buying power of people has gone down. On the other hand the
  6. I am using 3Ms as well. Cant comment on others,however if we keep aside the brand name '3M';others might as well be the same or might even be better. Agree with @kmeeg on heat, the tint, windshield sunshade both are useless if parked in direct sunlight for long hours.
  7. Check on Sunday Newspapers. e.g. Observer
  8. The metallic orange one is not the current gen. It was NA gen. One like below. Sorry my bad, missed the year of yours.
  9. Oh too bad, one of my dream cars. Haven't seen any come up for sale apart from 2 red ones year 2017 which has been for sale for a while now. Unfortunately the asking price is too much for me. Was yours a metallic orange one ? Remember seeing one sometime back in a Car sale around Kaduwela.
  10. Wow please add a dedicated thread for it. Right timing for steering rack and bush kits, Colonial mentioned to me on the recent inspection as well that around 80 I will have to replace them and I'm now at 60k and the bushes have shown some deterioration. And agree with paint, apparently the paint is a weak point on these, it gets easily scratched / wear off. For steering wheel and hand break I've been using covers so they have held up. Edit: this thread directed me to Mazdas, ended up buying an Axela. So thanks for that.
  11. Neat! Great work. Feeling the unique smell you get from the retro cars. And the cold you feel when you touch the metal/chrome 🙂
  12. Have never taken this road, seems to have good views too. Just looked up the g map and isn't it bit narrow. not sure if the g maps are old ? You think a sedan can tackle this road ?
  13. Absolutely yes one of my favorite drives as well. I made this trip on my Axela back in 2019. No issues with the road. But the road towards devils staircase, from the point the road from Ohiya divides is still bad from the beginning I guess. There are few good lodging places on that road, dont think we can make on a sedan. @K.o.N.o.S even though the roads are good there are few elbow bends closer to the Horton plains with the incline, if the cars are lowered you'll have to take extra care on those not to hit the front end.
  14. What happened? You lost it by some means or? If the car under went and widscreen change it might be that previous owner forgot to put it back. I have heard that if you lose it, you'll have to lodge a complaint at Police.

    First I dont think Mr Sylvi meant to offend anyone living abroad. By the saying "Third class migrants in First class Country". I guess living in SL or abroad is a personal preference one has to make. And the sacrifices and gains in doing so can vary from person to person based on his situation. And it depends on what you truely value in your life. What I value as the first priority might not be applicable to another. I have travelled to many so called popular destinations of Sri Lankans and stayed long term, but I never felt I want to make that place my home. So what I believe
