  1. Vitara might be a better option (looks good, finishing wise). At least the lineage has been there for a umpteen no of years and the reviews are not bad at all. Hyundai's have a bad reputation for name plates disappearing quickly
  2. My experience with Exide has been pretty good. I think now the batteries get a 4 year warranty, and for the Monty i actually got 1 battery replaced under warranty. Amaron is another option. But if you insist Yuasa will be a good choice. Am not sure whether Panasonic is manufactured in Japan anymore. Lucas and Exide both are the same and manufactured by the same factory at Rathmalana.
  3. yes the gift permit scheme stopped many years back. you can always get a reverse TT done from your relative (after the LC bills retire) putting an invoice as consultancy services provided
  4. First check the mileage your filter can handle. If its genuine Nissan rule of thumb should be 10K. Sighting the operating mechanism of e-power , i also don't see why you shouldn't adhere to a 10K cycle.
  5. OK i will agree with one point. The prices have now hit rock bottom, where some owners are willing to let go of their specimens after taking a hit of almost 5mn just within 3+ years. So, if you are looking at an SUV which is comfortable , decent drive this vehicle is good. Its' silent, spacious, got a good combination of creature comforts at that price point. But mind you, with that useless CVT , acceleration is sometimes a joke , where even trishaws overtake you. But once you get in to higher gears , it pulls. Anyway you should know that the car is underpowered to that body even with the elec
  6. Hi Guys, Doing some internet research on genuine parts and came across the following 2 websites which stock genuine OEM parts in Dubai and another country? Just wondering if anyone has experience bringing to Sri lanka ? a) Partsouq.com b) Amayama.com Actually its' re: a pair of shocks where these guys are giving it at 50% of the price of local agent.
  7. Dear iRage - Many many thanks for your input - Cheers
  8. Hi Guys - The agent indicated that both my front shocks have to be replaced, and quoting 100K , which i presume is quite outrageous. KYB from agents is available at 20K , but a contact wanted me to look at ARB Oldman EMU , or Bilstein which would be more reliable, than the KYBs. Any advice ? Will KYB not be the optimal choice for Montero?
  9. Its based on the Isuzu Panther, an MUV we used to have in Sri Lanka , sometime back. Can remember a lot of these were used as govt vehicles ( Those days SML was govt owned). Being bulit by Isuzu , even the Tavera may have a reliable engine , but i can remember the old Panthers suffering from rust. Also, engine rattle is a bit annoying and since its based on a pick up platform , wasn't very comfy. Also, i think the original wheel sizes were quite small, which kind of gave the car an unusual look. I guess you would not have a problem sourcing the engine parts , but body & other interi
  10. Gents, i was able to get a GLS full rear wheel cover and garnish of a damaged Pajero (V98) from Japan and want to fit it to my 2014 GLX Montero. Can anyone recommend me a good mechanic to do the replacement with painting. Thanks S
  11. Am not an expert in this but , my brief internet search tells me that L048 belongs to a 2.3 TD Pajero / Shogun. Let's see what the experts have to say
