    Got delivery of my Cypress Blu City two days ago. I just love the suspension on the thing although its going down about 2 inches in a weeks time. The engine's gutsy enough and while the Steermatic functions' a hoot its probably the last nail in the coffin as well. In auto mode the tranny hunts for gears endlessly and you always lack power when you need it. You hear the VTEC kick in the steermatic mode but the CVT rears its ugly head hear again refusing to let go of the previous cog when you wanna accelerate more. I find the low end response a shame and the waste of an otherwise magnificent motor. Pics to follow soon, nets slow!
    While we're on the topic, how about we organize a meet in Islamabad? Just a thought!
    Regards.

    fli dude dont know what kind of response you are expecting from an auto car....

    i have a steermatic and it is pretty responsive, better then other cars, i guess u have not tried the manual mode or S mode in detail yet....

    better yet, import a manual 1.5 city VTEC from thailand

    The 7-speed CVT is ditto to honda's multimatic in the D15B. I read(dont remember where) that honda's engineering division was asked the same question ie how much hp can the tranny handle and their response was that till date there hasn't been a single incidence of transmission melt down.

    Memphis!
    Trying to keep it simple by correlating it to a regular slushbox. I find using the word "gear" overwhelmingly simple than "pitch radius" twice in a sentence. I'm sure you get the jist!

    Retrograde!
    I'm just penning down my observation, the tranny's inefficency coupled with the small motor does'nt really thunp you back in the seat, read carefully!! And if I did import something, it would'nt be a freaking City!

    I know what you mean and the thing is that its going to take a little time for us Humans to adjust to this new tranny, cause its got a totally different feel, thats the reason why it isnt so popular in the US yet...


    PS Honda Fit in the US is equipped with a conventional auto tranny..

    True, the low end response is underwhelming but do consider the fact that the primary objective of the entire L series is fuel efficency. Cant say if one gets used to the CVT or vice versa but that underwhelming feeling does tend to go away in a while.

    Thanks Ahsen. You'll have to wait for the lowered pics though.The Spoon dampers and Weapon R Springs'll take 10 days to get here.
    By the way if anyone's got a good deal on H4 HID kit, lemme know.

    @fli-gti, congrats man for the new ride, but frankly I was surprised because was not expecting a guru to lay his hands on a frail steermatic.

    I opened this thread after a long time and that too in reverse order, so let me know did you get some speicial deal (they were giving it for 972,000 with free reg and petrol)
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
