    Default Our All New Civic 8th Gen--- // RAPTOR \\

    Hey guys hope you read my thread in the best of your spirits and health.
    First of All, thanks to Almighty Allah for making me reach to this position and write about ride I wanted to own for like years. May Allah enable me/us to come up to his expectations and be grateful to him for literally countless blessings he always showers on us!
    Well, after saving amount for like a year from our previously purchased Swift, we had been in a great befuddlement ever since new Corolla was launched. New shape corolla in addition to having better front than its predecessor, fuel efficient & more responsive engine and also better interior; thanks to its better colored wooden paneling, always tempted me a lot. BUT, my natural inclination towards 8th Gen civic weighed far more than cold feet arising from upcoming 9th Gen civic in perhaps less than 6 to 8 months span. This actually became the reason why I didn’t deign to spend over Rs. 2.2 Million for oriel rather went for simple VTI (base model). Moreover, the interior of civic to me always seemed very mesmerizing and was one of the major factors that made me fall for civic…
    In that puzzlement, I did approach many respectful PakWheelers and trust me every member guided me, advised me with probably the most sincere preference. I would like to take this opportunity to give my hearty thanks particularly to Airomerix, Immad100, 309, max414, Pyromaniac… Thanks a lot guys. God bless you all.
    The minimal delivery time of civic was yet a bonus in comparison to FOUR months of delivery time for Altis (any variant) as I couldn’t afford to wait for that longer…
    But I pay my heartiest thanks to Allah for creating such opportunities for me that I ended up buying this absolutely magnificent ride. CIVIC… the pleasure starts right after you open the door and place yourself in its cockpit… the marvelous digital speedometer, the unique tachometer, the most appealing dash, comfortable seats and monstrous engine MASHALLAH… The throttle response, the brake stability, the quiet cabin and buttery handling… Everything’s just great MASHALAH
    I aint much into modifying the ride but will be going for some changes like:
     Alloy Rims (any member/ non member having genuine Alloys of Oriel for sale may pls contact me)
     Keyless Entry (already done)
     Tires ( Already installed Yokohama dB v 550)
     Fog lights
     Audio System (Suggestions required for LCD system assuring high quality audio and video)
     Suggestions/Recommendations regarding additional modification are required from all members


    And Now, here I am presenting our all new 8th Gen Civic MT VTI.
    Our All New Civic 8th Gen---  RAPTOR  -306514

    Our All New Civic 8th Gen---  RAPTOR  -306515

    Our All New Civic 8th Gen---  RAPTOR  -306516

    Our All New Civic 8th Gen---  RAPTOR  -306517

    Our All New Civic 8th Gen---  RAPTOR  -306518

    Do give your valued feedback. Thanks

    It costed me somewhere around Rs. 28K with paint-job from Honda Classic. It is worth spending this much to improve the looks of the car....you can see how mine looks like after bodykit and alloys....

    Kindly share the Yoko bill?


    Regards.
    Hahah... Well hats off to your review... I indeed am a big fan of how you incorporated details with practical measures... And I'll also try to come with some similar calculations...
    Giving the due major weight to immobiliser, the whole civic actually did the trick on me; undeniably
    Bro I got the tires for 8500/tire size: 205/65R 15
    Tire size 205/60R15 was for rs. 8250 per tire
    Same was the price for 195/65R15
    I also searched for Michelin Energy Saver which was for 9000 per piece with size 205/60R15
    After giving my Eurostars I had to pay additional Rs. 18000 (charges inclusive of fitting and balancing)

    MASHALLAH it's finally here. CONGRATS!!! car is looking absolutely gorgeous in this color and i must say you made the right decision about changing the crappy eurostars with yokohama and also the size is perfect for 8th gen. civic. Now please post some more pictures of your car with the new tires on it. Btw i also got 205/65R15 tires for my new ride but the tires are Sumitomo HTRs and man they perform very nice, i mean at speeds of 100-120km/hr you would feel as if you're driving b/w 30-50km/hr

    waiting for more pictures, please do upload them soon
    VTEC did not kicked in ooooo

    Any way this is just my opinion....you may have different plans...
    yeah that's right.... The upcoming civic is downgraded from this 8th gen in many aspects... it can be googled.. for instance one link may be checked as below:
    Consumer Reports Blasts New Honda Civic - CBS MoneyWatch.com
    Still, im keeping my fingers crossed for upcoming Civic and yet didnt want to let go the pleasure of 8th Gen to compare it with

    yeah thats a good advise... ruining the door by installing bigger speakers will probably be the last thing i will do
    I am a kinda person who would want to use original speakers if i cant find a very capable person to install speakers and play with wiring
    pls recommend if is it better to get the speakers installed from honda dealership or local market installation is equally good and wouldnt harm warranty?

    well bro i had seen your thread even before my civic deal and im again viewing it... and really... your car and the photography is an inspiration Mashalah
    Im likely to go for body kits inshalah after like a month as i have to wait for my next salary for that
    I also checked the price of this kit from Saddar Rawalpindi and shopkeeper was offering it for Rs. 18000 (unpainted)... tell me are there any recommended makes/ brands for body kits or something? and what should its fair price tag be?

    Thanks a lot bro.... great to hear from you
    Hope you get your ride soon inshalah... and hope you dont have to pay the excess amount (referring to recent hike by indus)

    Thanks a lot man pleased to hear from you we were intending to go for either red (my bro was in love with it) or white if we had to book but as we were given options of black and this polish metal for ready delivery so went for this.. and yes Mashalah it looks very elegant on road
    Eurostars literally suck big time... and they sound like cow while driving.. its a big relief to change them... Yoko are serving me great alhamdulilah... havent used Sumitomo But im sure from your words that they are good...
    New pics will be uploaded in a while inshalah
