    The emtpy space adjacent to lighter is of no use; the plastic thing there is also very light
    keep ur sunglasses here

    195/65/15 is not a good configuration for the car; you need to have bigger and wider tyres; took the car on highway for short trip
    205/65/15 is ideal

    The engine blows some kind of air underneath; its noticeable when you are parking the car on kacha
    only when a/c is on...its the 2nd fan which throws air downwards

    The trunk size is small; especially the height; in comparison to Corolla as well as even City. City has biggest trunk I guess!
    agreed!!

    "City" is more fun to drive within city; its power/weight ratio is better; and its "smart size" is more friendly for maneuvering!
    auto civic is the thing for city...manual definitely is more suited to highway/motorway rides...city's size sure is ideal...
    sent from my HD2 without using the handset itself!!

    IMHO I think I liked the handbrake positioning specially while pulling it time and again on sloping roads and lots of traffic. Could it be that your seat is reclined back more than normal due to which you feel that the gear lever and and hand brake are far? It could be a possibility.

    I was thinking this space is perfect for some electronic gadgets like Scan Guage II.

    Yes; I have the habit to keep the seat position farthest. I guess it all started with 9th gen Corolla which is pathetic for leg room for driver and passengers in back. Civic and new City both are (Y) for the leg rooms.

    The Civic hand brake lever looks different ... but I think it is far better than the conventional horizontal lever because it can be gripped more quickly than the conventional design

    Nice share 007!

    To register the car; there are three ways; a traditional way, the right way and special way. Traditionally; you either give your invoice to the sales person at the dealer from where you got the car or you contact the "agent" usually found outside of the registration office. They charge 1000 - 3000; and takes care of everything. You have to contact the person few times to collect the registration plates and then copy. Dont forget to take the defaced original invoices.

    The right way is that you contact the motor registration authority; they give you a form; its 1 page simple form; you fill it out; give the money on the counter; they give you the number plates and let you know when to pick the copy/defaced original invoice etc. If registering in Punjab; the form is available at http://mtmis.punjab.gov.pk/Download/Form_F.pdf and from the same site you can calculate the tax amount as well. There is usually no long queues; and this whole process hardly takes 5 mins; and you are good to drive your car on the roads!

    I was wondering once how one can get https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/veh...special-number as the series start in year start and the special numbers ( <1000 ) are available only through bidding at that time. Even if the number is unused; you cannt get that afterwords. "Investors" buy these numbers; and you can reach them through used car dealer shops or through the agent outside registration office. They tell which numbers are available; you select one and negotiate its price with them. They also try to offer services for registration as well. (which I mentioned above is very easy).

    I had the plan to go to Lahore for registration today; but my son has Bi-Monthly Assesment tomorrow; and I take care of his preparation. I have postponed my plan till Saturday. Suggest guys should I simply go and get whatever number I get or try to find some "Special Number" ?

    Khurram Bhai ... special numbers have significance if you plan to keep your car for considerable period of time.

    If you plan to keep your car for a year of so, then get any number .. but if version of Viper or Laadli is coming on the road .. then better to make effort

    I have started two special and double "committees" (they are usually 10 months / 10 members thing) from this month; Insh-a-Allah in 20 months; will have funds for 9th Civic. By that time it must be on the roads around. I dont know if this is considerable period of time or not?

    Default Registration Charges

    The registration charges in Punjab for VTi with 16,92,000 price (16,85,000 + 7,000 freight) is 59,290. You are suppose to get the car registered within two months of the invoice date, otherwise you have to give penalty!

    I have to visit my employer' head office in Lahore occassionally; secondly I am told by a taxation officer; that in Punjab' Provincial Budget; the registration charges will be revised (read increased) so want to get this thing done as soon as possible.

    Khokhar bhai, it all depends upon the category of scratches. If you could elaborate a little and show some pics, I think I may be able to give you a very effective solution.
