    Default Bought New 2014 Honda city...Suggestions and Help

    Alhumdullilah Just bought a new black 2014 Honda city 1.3 Manuel from Honda Fort in Lahore for my first car. Went to Lahore from Islamabad to buy a used City but ended up with a new one

    However because the Honda people said the documents would take a few days to come in before I could register, and because I couldnt drive it back on the motorway with APPLIED FOR... I had to leave the car in Lahore at an uncles house. I had a few questions:

    Should I register it in Lahore and bring it back or bring the documents Islamabad and register it here and then go get it? What are the costs of doing it in both places?

    Should i leave the stock Euro tyres on there or upgrade? If upgrade then what is a reputable shop in the Pindi/ISB area?

    I want to get it tinted. What percentage is good enough and reputable place to get it done?

    Also want to get fabric seat covers made. Where can i find them or get them made?

    Any other suggestions for upgrades or changes and where to get them..... mud guards, engine guards, using OEM engine oil or others, speakers and 2din DVD, etc.... First car so any help would be greatly appreciated.... Will post more pictures as soon as I get back to the car!Bought New 2014 Honda citySuggestions and Help -1435115

    You could have easily brought it to isbd without any issue
    I bought a civic from honda gateway and drove it to isbd without any invoice or papers.
    got the invoice after 8 days
    anyways congrats on the new car. Allah apko naseeb kare

    Heartiest congratulations. M happy you bought a sedan as your first Vehicle and that too, brand new.

    Register it From Islamabad because if you Intend to live here, it'll be easier to get through Police checks and have a Better and quicker resale too. Cost ov registration does differ with Islamabad being the costlier one but it pays well at the end. Cost ov registration can be told only once you tell the Price you paid.

    Let the Euro tires be; they appear to have improved in the past few years.

    You could have easily made your own number plates and made it to home. My number plates were just an A-4 paper...came back from Islamabad using the motorway.

    Thumbs up Excellent choice!

    MashAllah and congratulations! I hope you enjoy the car and drive safely. Just a suggestion; when you tint the car windows please do not get the rear window tinted as the tint paper will render the rear defogger non operational. Use a screen shade or curtain in the rear.

    Congratulations on your new purchase. Its looking very nice. The first thing is you could have brought your car back on motorway with you. All you need was the invoice. Since you have left it there next time when you go to collect the papers bring your car back as it is. Get it registered in your home town as it is easier to pay the yearly taxes etc and Islamabad registered cars have better amd quicker resale. About the tyres if you can, switch over to a better brand as eurostars are very hard tyres. Leave them on for a few thousand kms and your car will develop strange noises + alot of road noises.
    I have experienced this personaly. So this time when we bought 2014 civic went straight from showroom to tyre shop to get eurostars changed. Personally I switched them with yokohama advan db v551 its a very soft tyre. And one more thing stick to the stock tyre size otherwise it has effects on fuel consumption. Enjoy your new car.
