  1. Good morning fellow Petrol heads, After years of reading posts and looking at adverts, finally I found myself a problem worth the attention of a larger forum (I think). I've recently bought a used Montero V93W GLS here are some of features 1.Build Year 2011 export model 2.GLS With Rockford 6 CD changer with Aux In and USB ( no MMCS, no Bluetooth support) 3.No premium alarm with ultra sound sensors (just the immobilizer) Having said that, here's the situation. For some time I've been contemplating if it made sense to upgrade the 6 CD changer to the OEM MMCS. The reasoning is as follows 1. The reverse camera is currently one of them Chinese media player cum rear view mirror thingy (which is hiding that nice anti dazzing rear view mirror which came with the jeep) 2. Handsfree mobile connectivity sucks ( Aux in works but the Rockford's DSP is messing with the noise cancelling feature of the phone) I've ruled out using an aftermarket Dual Din set up mainly because the CD player is tightly coupled to the Rockford amplifier and personally I prefer the OEM version. I've also done some research on scope of this engagement, it will require ( I'm sure I'm missing more stuff here) the addition of 1.The Hand free ECU 2. Handfree switches on the Steering wheel 3.Microphone installation which requires the premium alarm's ultrasonic sensor housing to be installed 4. The all mighty MMCS. (GPS Sensor is optional) Considering how well the modules are integrated using the CAN-BUS, I'm sure it wont be a walk in the park but if done, I would like to do it without splicing too many wire in a nice OEM kinda way. So, what do you guys think about this endeavor. Does it make sense ? Has anyone an idea about where to acquire the parts and/or a good place to get this done?

  10. Gents, Well, couple of days ago the Monty went for a service (first after i bought her) at the agents and they wanted me to replace her rear brake pads. She has only done 50K kms still. I went to the workshop when they were about to remove the wheel and observed that the pads were shot to the steel frame. Price quoted was 20K and had to anyway incur it. In the web i see that for the V98W Shogun , genuine pads start at GBP 11/- and so on. One place in Kadawatha quoted 7K for the pads. Can i know from the Monty users in the forum is there any place you guys get reliable Monty spares (especially the R& RSs) in Sri Lanka at a reasonable price other than the agents ? Thanks in advance for your assistance. Sadik
  11. Hi guys, I am in the process of buying a SUV to do some off roading. I won't be doing extreme off roading, but to travel in dirt tracks, sandy beaches etc where a typical family sedan can't go. At the moment I am looking at a 2002-2005 Mitsi Montero V6 3.5L. I know petrol engines are not as good as diesel when it comes to off roading, but my budget only cater up to this. So can you share you expert advice regarding this. Is it worth to buy a Montero & is it worth to buy a petrol? Cheer

  15. Recently I bought a Mitsubishi Montero V98W, which had been previously bought for the permit, where the all the accesories were fixed from Un*t*d M*t*rs (with all the bills and all) except for the roof rails. The previous owner was reluctant to fix it as they want to drill the top and fix it. So today I called Elc*rd*, there also they are following the same procedure. So does anyone of you know of a place where I can fix those two bars without drilling the upper surface. Thanks in advance.
  16. Hi, there are two montero sports at my office with ODO at 45000km and 12000km. during the usage period of 45000km we happened to replace the brake pads 5 times and the vehicle with 12000km had front brake pads replaced once at 10000km. When I spoke to Uni**d Motors they say its normal as a brake pad is only expected to last from 10000km to 15000km distance. Meanwhile we have a montero 2013 and several prius cars, non of those giving trouble like this, one prius got a brakepad replacement only after 100,000km. What might be the reason for such wear-off.
  17. Guys I am planing to buy a Mitsubishi Montero Jeep. (not sport) 2000-2004 one. Think price going around 4.5 to 5.5 Million. please tell me some more details about this vehicle.

  18. I saw montero 3.2 DI-D is offered for the permit, so anybody saw the SUV in person? If so what are the options they give? And how much they offer ?
