  1. Do we have a thread for Euro car news ? Spy shots of a mysterious Volvo These spy shot were taken a few days ago in Sweden. The thing is an exact look a like of the P1800. No one seems to know for certain what it is as Volvo had not officially announced anything of the sort (even if they did why the heck would it be a replica of the P1800 ?). Assumption is that it is a special one-off model Volvo will be releasing to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the P1800. As you can see the front-end is slightly different and it has a wider stance. Apparently the car is owned by Cyan Racing (tuner shop for Volvo/Geely)....so hmm... https://www.motor1.com/news/435966/volvo-p1800-prototype-spied/
  2. Hi guys, Am looking to buy a Volvo S40 automatic. I am currently considering a pre-facelift car as opposed to buying a facelift because I couldnt find an automatic facelift S40. What I want to know is are there any issues in general with a pre-facelift S40? In the local context of course. Also what would be the ideal price range for a well maintained example? Thanks in advance.
  3. Dear Experts, We have a Volvo S40 1.9 Turbo Diesel (Manual Transmission) imported brand new in year 2000 under permit scheme. After first 30,000km done , it gave some engine problems and agent Swedish Trading replaced a new engine at free of cost under warranty as it was a manufacturing fault. (Heard that agent replaced around 8 engines under warranty scheme due to same problem.) However after using new engine for 70,000km, we had to do overhaul the engine. After 45,000km from the engine overhaul, now we are getting various problems. Now we are looking avenues for fixing a Japanese engine with a gear box and convert it to Automatic transmission. My questions are, (1) Is it possible to fix any good Japanese Engine (Eg. Toyota, Nissan) with Automatic transmission gear box? (2) What are the suitable Japanese engine models? (3) Any disadvantages can hope in future? (4) Can you suggest any good place to get this service? Details of the vehicle are as follows. Make and model: Volovo S40 YOM: Late 2000 Engine Capacity: 1.9 (1870CC) Turbo Diesel Transmission : Manual (5 forward) Unladen Weight: 1325kg Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi, Gentlemen and ladies (if there any) I currently own a S Type Jaguar (2000 model year), which is a great machine that has very unique and distinctive looks and loads of road presence, specially where I live most of the time (outside the Colombo). However, I have been thinking of trading my Jag to one of the following models. 1. BMW E38 - 740iL preferably (1998-2001) - used to be a dream car for me and still is to some extent,very rare to find. 2. BMW E39 - 525i, 530i preferably (2001-2003) - not sure if this will be a downgrade from my S type Jag in terms of looks, sheer road presence and power. 3. BMW E60 5 Series - (2003-2006) - Nice car, not many on classifieds like the F10 5 Series 4. Jaguar XJ (X350) - (2003-2007) - The big brother to my S Type. Amazing looks, expensive and very rare. 5. Audi A6 (C5) - (2000 - 2003) - also, not sure if this will be a downgrade from my S type Jag in terms of looks, sheer road presence and power. 6. Merc W211 E Class ( 2002 - 2005) - Looks elegant, may not be a bang for the buck due to high demand for Mercs in SL Since I am used to fuel consumption, parts availability and maintenance cost of premium euro's, I humbly request from you to guide on on, 1. What kind of improvements that each model will offer in comparison to my S Type Jag ? 2. Can you point out a mint condition E38 (long wheel base LCI), E39, E60, XJ - X350 that is intended for trade / sale ? 3. Other general advice ? Thanking you for your precious time.. Kal-El
  5. Hi Automobiles or cars as we used call them, has long become a commodity and are now mass produced trade items that aims to fulfill the automotive requirements of contemporary human beings, whose day to day routines IMHO, are much more sophisticated now and reflect the chaotic and busy social, economic aspects of modern societies. Due to such scenario, most of us has lost certain feel good factor and innocence that we had when we were growing up (applies more to people who have grown up in 80's and 90's). IMHO, the cars themselves too, whilst become state-of-the-art and technologically revolutionary by every passing year, has lost a certain character and enthusiasts who love cars manufactured in 90's or early 00's, may agree that, their cars has such personality and character, that most modern cars (even the current models of their favorite make) lacks and thus continues to TLC their cars with great dedication and soul. IMHO, For example, a BMW car manufactured in 90's (or early 00's) has such a timeless design aesthetics and driving a well maintained car will give the impression that, people who made that car has such attention to detail, workmanship, passion and are mostly assembled in original factory of the maker. Now a modern BMW for example is mostly put together by robots and are mass-produced items in countries like India or china (no offense to the countries) and during recent ride in a 2015 5 series, I got the impression that, whilst the Car is modern looking and dripping with latest technologies, it lacked that certain character that old ones had and I got the impression that some of the materials used in the new car may not be durable as the ones in older cars. No I cannot afford a 2015 BMW for the time being I do not intent to discourage anyone from buying one. Also I do not intent to undervalue the brilliant tech or modern aspects of new cars, However, my heart always races when i see a mint condition older car (exclusively euro car as I am an euro car enthusiast) on the roads and I don't get the same excitement when I see modern cars. It may be just me or do you also happens to have same feelings for 90's cars. Sound off in comments below Cheers,
