I occasionally browse social media of AL members (that I can find of course) Mostly the member active from 2006 ish to around 2014.· 1 reply
I am proud to say almost all of them are much wealthier now than when they joined many years ago.
Most of them drive some real cool machines.Some are even on the “car spotters” pages (which seems to be the achievement target for young guys)
I’m very sure the passion and excitement plus the wealth of knowledge gained from Autolanka helped them to have the awesome taste in cars they do. In a sea of new money people and their flashy show off cars. The Autolanka crowd still stands taller.
Not many young people know about AL, even the old members seem to have forgotten/passed that era. But the cars they drive and the class they show is unmatched in the car scene.
Thank you @MADZ for starting AL and even more so for maintaining it all these years. I saw that you are in Sri Lanka no more, understandably. But I’m glad you still make the effort to keep it going.
The country keeps going backwards. But at least the Autolanka members are doing well and keeping that AL spirit.
After owning the Camry for 2 years I just realized I have never been driven in the backseat. The only other person who has driven the car other than myself as well is my Mechanic· 3 replies

Hi guys! I'm looking to buy my first car and I have a budget of around 1.5mil, I can stretch up to about 1.7 mil and that would be the maximum. I have a few cars in mind and I would love it if you can shed some light because I've never bought a car before and I don't want to risk buying a car that might bump into a lot of issues in the future.
Most of the cars in my budget are from the early to late 90s with a mileage at about 150K to 200K. Is the long mileage something I should be very concerned about based on my budget?
I am looking for a car that would take it easy on my pocket, a car that looks averagely good, is comfortable to drive, and can average about 30km to 40km a day without major issues.
These are some of the cars that I have my eye on, please let me know what you think will be the best option and it would be great if you could also suggest some other options. 😁
