Re: Ralliart sedan boot size

The Ralliart sedan's boot is NOT as big as the NA's. It's actually more shallow due to the 4WD system.

To find out if your bike fits, it might be better to find someone who owns a Ralliart kind enough to let you test their boot.

The mileage is quite high for a four-year-old car though. The owner averages more than 30,000 km a year, but if it's mostly highway cruising and regularly serviced, then it shouldn't be wearing out the drivetrain too much. The Lancer's value tends to go down by half in three years, so you may still ...

That title goes to Victoria, pioneer of the mobile speed cameras. At least the cop there gave Troy a chance to rectify the problem of no rego, whereas here, we would have faced a fine of nearly the same amount as the rego itself.

I know a lot of people who have a good driving record and have had fines dismissed on appeal. It's worth noting that Victoria stopped accepting this as an excuse to get away with speeding fines. They've removed it in September last year. As for getting fined for no rego, I'm not sure if the point-t...

Unfortunately, Mitsu paint their cars as if they don't wanna paint them at all. Wax and polish will help, but don't be surprised if the thin, clear part starts flaking off in a few years. Professional detailing makes any colour shine, so have it done while it's still intact.

I'd narrow it down to the 2013 and 2011 ones. 2013 - newest one of the bunch and has substantial warranty left on it, only cons are having to wash every 2 days (because white) and some aftermarket parts (intake, exhaust) may not fit. Can tuners confirm that the ECU can be customised? 2011 - cheaper,...

The Merlin tune literally transforms the RA from a car you wanna re-sell immediately to one you wanna keep for a long time, if not forever!

1. Check redbook.com.au for your car's trade-in value and print a copy of that page to bring to the dealer. 2. Dealer will most likely offer you a couple of grand lower than the Redbook value. Present the printout should this happen. 3. Make an offer that will give you an advantage of a few thousand...

If leather seats are something you can live without, then it's a good opportunity to haggle. If they can't offer them even as an option, then you can possibly argue driving compromise and ask for a discount. This third party solution for leather you can do yourself, and much cheaper, if someone make...

So it took them 8 years to come up with a new bumper design? Regardless, this facelift is obviously out of desperation. I remember nearly 2 decades ago when Volvo tried to modernise the front end of the curveless 850 and renaming it S70, but it just didn't go with the rest of the car that was still ...

Having a Platinum CVT as my previous car and rented a manual, I can possibly compare both as well. Each has its pros and cons. The CVT is good for cruising, can make use of the engine better than a conventional 4-speed auto. You're at the right rpm all the time. The sport shift is very useful for up...

You can also go with Exaltd Automotive in Nunawading if you want to avoid the dealer. The owner is a member here and he does a tip-top job.

Chadstone Mitsubishi did my Ralliart alright. They're pretty straightforward, and the shopping centre is walking distance.

My 60K service was $260, so if you're in the same programme, it should cost you that much as well. Best to check with the dealer just to be sure.
