Having used Corolla previosuly, they were generally not very happy with local dealer type fittment in some cases (fitting of USB cable of Kenwood system thorugh dashboard)

Any clue with anyone?
I got my car in march, and the only plastic that i think have gone bad compared the previous ones are the bumpers, they simply S#@%, especially the ones in the front, see the gap between the hood and the grille. Otherwise the interiors are really good i think. Cannot comment on the ones available right now, but it should not have changed this quick, but then again, who knows, its after-all HM

Saw the car today and no second thoughts on this one. The photos posted dont do justice to the car. It looks much better than represented in the images. Plus, in real, the stickers dont look that bad.

Buying it on first week of Sept! Time to change signature from 2009 Thinking to 2009 Cedia

Test drove the car last week, and I must say that she handled very well.She was well planted at speeds above 120, no complaints at all, the interiors are much better than the octavia too.Not to forget the MOMO wheel the sales guy was a very well mannered and knowledgeable chap.If only they had retained the smoked head lamps!

she felt planted at 187...120... no comments. Just that the tyres make a lot of noise.. with better shoes I wonder what she ewill do. Plus I dont know why they got rid of smoked light.. looks wicked, may be because they had built-up inventories of the normal ones and wanted to clear them. Still If you go to buy a cedia I think dealer can do something about the smoked lamps. one of our mates Raaj was helped in every what way when he wanted a cedia.

good to see different colours together... I just hope all this works, though I know it wont..wheres the new lancer Mitsui...I wish they could hear us.

Plus the stikers look awefull on all colours. Though on white it looks ok, the first thing one should do upon buying a cedia is to get rid of these stikers.

I beg to differ but I like the stickers! *Runs for Cover*
The fact that saddens me are the wheels. Those OZ rims look too puny on a car of its size. They atleast need to be an inch bigger.

By the way, the sticker design is a replica of those found on the Ralliart Lancer Evolution X.

Hi guys, I'm a newbie on TEAM BHP and one of the reasons I jumped on the bandwagon was this specific thread. I read all of it before I got my new Cedia Sports on Aug 23 and just as the majority of the posts in this thread say - WITHOUT THE STIKCERS . I'm very happy with my purchase and I have already clocked over 1500 kms on it.

However, when I went in for my first service at 1000 km, they replaced the air-intake tube. Take a look at the pics. The 1st pic was taken when I took delivery of the car and shows the air-intake open. The 2nd pic was taken after the service and shows the air-intake closed. The service manager informed me that the air-intake opening was now on the underside of the tube.

When I started to drive home from the service center I noticed the car seemed to have lost power. Above 3000 rpm, the engine sounded strained but the car would just not move as quickly. Before the service, the engine would purr along with no strain just a dab of gas would make it go. I went back to the service center the next day and got the original air-intake fitted back on. And just like that the car was driving as it was before.

Why would Mitsubishi change the air-intake at the 1st service if it actually degrades the performance of the car?

What the hell!. It seems as if the engineer had put the tube upside down..still cant clarify from the pics.

But I am 100% sure that something is wrong. It is supposed to be open as it is from the 1st picture and closing it certainly means no air entering the engine which makes it strained.

what ever the manager told you is absolutely wrong and I guess they by mistake installed the tube upside down which they then sorted. Nothing to do with Mitsubishi and no OEM yet has come up with a gasoline engine sourcing air from downside, until its an EV which desnot need air to cool the engine..I mean there is no engine. Even the 2nd pic cant justify the air comming from downside, no place man!

The engineers just goofed up and sorted it the next time you went up there. Stupid reply though for the goof up they made!
