    Default Babaromar: Honda Accord 2006 required

    Babar, one of my senior colleagues intends to buy the local Honda Accord from Honda Atlas. He needs black color which is not been offered. Secondly, he has his sister in USA. If she gifts it to him from USA, can you tell the price of the car in USA and the approx duty ex karachi, including everything.

    If it is less than 2.4 million, why not import it. Looking forward to yr reply.

    hi
    may i add something quickly here,, rest baberomer will answer,, cost of car shipping from USA is very high compared to countries closer to pakistan, plus left hand drive can will have less resale, also you may damage the fuel intake by using a diffirent fuel car was actually designed for because as hi-octane grade in fuel is diffirent than in pakistan plus the leaded fuel issue.

    Agreed Levin. im not too sure about the fuel part, i believe it should still run on the petrol here ( high octaine though)...

    waqar bhai, have you tried calling Honda in karachi?. If you want i can give you the direct number of one of the owner/partner of HONDA DRIVE INN karachi..he's a really good guy, will give you an accurate answer and no BS

    One more thing US cars are LHD and Pakistan is RHD, no resale value of a LHD in Pak unless converted and then again not compareable to RHD

    Is there any possibility that the car could be gifted from USA and bought/dispatched from Dubai or Japan or Thailand ?

    @akbar: I have talked to Local Honda Classic here in Islamabad. They are adamant that they would give only one color : stone silver probably. Price 2.4 Mln and delivery within 15 days. I presume your Honda Karachi will also provide the same level of information because this is what the Honda Atlas says. However, since you are in USA, what is the price of this Accord 2.4 Litre, A/T there? I would get a rough comparison by adding the duty.

    My colleague is not all interested in a LHD car.

    Yes levin, you are right about the shipping distance and the lead thing. I have noted them.

    PS...Msg for Akbar..how do i send you the CNG pics? Hotmail refuses to load them.

    Babar: your cell is either switched off or unreachable.

    Akbar. If the price is around USD 22000 and the duty is USD 18000, the price comes to 2.4 Mln. Whats the fun then?

    I will send the pics thru photobucket.

    @levin
    shipping a car from the US or Japan or Dubai cost almost the same rougky around $1000 I worked for a friend of mine who used to ship cars to Saudia and depending on the size of the vehicle and I have checked the prices in Dubai and Japan it is almost the same, I have no Idea why.

    Ok I will call tomorrow. Was tied up today in Clinton's visit to Pakistan.
    Your photobucket takes a lot of time in uploading. Anything quicker and easier?

    Zeeali. Camry is ok. But 2006 shell has entirely been changed. Pakistan has yet to import that version. So buying something for 2.5 mln and that too an old shape is not a wise decision. although I personally think Camry is a much better option than Accord. Its much more spacious and rugged. Sunroof and the best plush interior you can get.
