    I think the year of manufacturing (YOM is 2005) and he bought the car in 2006!
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    if it was the 2005 manufactured, then you must be kidding with 60K own...
    You may check the market, bigger showrooms are offering it with absolutely no own (with exception of few colors at some showrooms) while in general max own on exi is no more than 15-20K

    go for 15" , keeping in mind comfort and fuel economy. the milage will go down a bit, but will generally improve after running of car a few thousand km's.

    15" sucks, put in a CNG and simply go for 17" and i bet the car will rock...
    even VTI's with Dunlop are a failure in looks in front of such an EXI.
    although this would be at the cost of low breaking performance and too heavy a feeling while driving....
    marzi hai, looks or performance as 1.5L starts failing for 17" forsure

    now that AkbarGr8 likes typical married looks car, yeah 15" works fine... i said if you want to go for looks at the cost of performance simpy just go for 17"
    Ok, wise solution is to go for 16" a better compromise...
    "Suspension ko khuch bhi nahi ho ga..."
    even 15" give you way more uncomfortable feeling when going on bumpy roads and even if with 15" you're on M2 you'll still feel the unbalancing....

    try it yourself...
    iv'e bought the new EXI prosmatic on the 31st of Jan yet to go for the tyres but soon upload the pics...
    oh yeah "idl1000" you were rite, in Lahore at Honda Fort, own on EXI Manual is Rs. 40,000/- for the 06 model while Rs.20,000/- for the 05 made.
    I got my exi prosmatic for exactly Rs. 1037500/- without any own...
    you were rite!!!!
