I need advise on the Diesel Lancer engine. The New City would have been hands down my choice but alas its Petrol which I have opted out off.
I saw ilangos Lancer threads and Yep Lancer rocks !
@ilango, looking at the pic above, how much do you think it would cost to get the same kind of Widebody for the lancer ?
Lancer in one cool car to own up.
the comfort is so good in it , that you will love to max.
the diesel engine is not so modern in it. and so you can find some vibrations creeping in.
apart from that it will not be as quick as getz , but as fast as getz.
lancer is mod friendly , both for loud and subtle.
the interior too mod friendly for two tone painting.
Comming on to maintenance.
its damn cheap to maintain a lancer than a octy.
Lancer spares are available in normal spare shops like in coimbatore and chennai.
since its full mechanical engine , its much more reliable than a ecmed car.
i mean , if at all you are duped in 2nd hand car market , you get to lighter on pocket to bring her back to life.
Wide body kit as of autophyse is available only with them and i hope they cost 40 to 45 unpainted.
cheap relica's are not worth.
we dont just copy the exact model. But can work on new design. all we need more than money is TIME.
our normal skirts cost 24k , spoiler 6k . combined we can give for 27k , painted.
