    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

    Yes.. you are right Steermatics are rare as they were only produced by Honda Atlas in 2006 & 2007. The reason for not doing well commercially is that this was a very sophisticated machine and general public and mechanics failed to understand it and hence a public opinion rose that lead to Steermatic being discontinued.. But no matter what people say and continue to say.. I bought it and am very satisfied with the value of money i am getting out of this.. So far I haven't seen any unsatisfied Steermatic customer ....

    thanks a lot bro...
    About premium... initially i being resident of Rwp, traditionally went to Honda Center, Pishawar Road, they were asking premium worth Rs. 40k or delivery time of two months... i tried negotiating with them to reduce delivery time as I'M HIGHLY AGAINST PREMIUMS.... but they were very adamant and never gave me any relaxation neither in any Premium nor in Delivery time... As a last resort, Thanks to Allah, I went to Isb to Honda Classic.. and guess what... They were offering delivery time of ONLY 30 Days... And on THAT... They had two VTIs on ready delivery with NO PREMIUM AT ALL... and Alhamdulilah I got this car the very same day of my payment without just any Premium...

    regards.
    Oh thanks a lot dear.. Tinting certainly enhances the look of car provided they are done nicely.. so what do yo recommend the tint darkness to be? 25% would be good? i was just wondering if we have any lighter shade than this... something like 10% percent or something...any idea?

    any yes i was also thinking of lip spoiler... Also my bro was suggesting the same... Ill check the market for that sometime inshalah... Thanks for your valued suggestion... and keep coming up with such suggestions

    Exactly... either there aint users of steermatic... OR if there are.... then they are very satisfied... just felt like asking... what at that time was the price difference between steermatic and idsi?

    Back in 2006/7 Idsi Manual was around 880,550 while Idsi Vario was around 950,000 while Steermatic was offered at 10,30,500 which was reduced by 50,000 before stopping the production..

    hm... with difference of about 1.5 lac and later on only 1 lac, to me steermatic certainly seemed to be a better buy at that time... but people generally prefer base models in this price range... see the difference between xli and gli... and i still see people preferring xlis over glis...
    Anyway.. thanks for info bro

    I would have gone for a new Steermatic If i had that much money in 2006 .. I would rather not comment on the Xli/Gli and Corolla V/S Honda thing as this would just start a battle in your thread

    You got me right bro... Till the last day I was choosing between Altis and Civic... Altis was having three to four months of delivery time and on that civic was available on ready delivery... Importantly, Altis lacks the basic feature of Immobiliser which i believe is a must for any car... Moreover, I was expecting price hike so I thought of going for civic straight away... Also, I actually wanted to go for civic because of its known drive, handling and performance but initially I wasn't choosing civic considering it's an outgoing model... But now I believe... Whatever it is, this car is worth the price

    Any chance you are thinking of getting CNG in it ???
    Or any other member who got CNG installed in 8th gen can please share its consumption and experience here..

    Apologies in advance from Civic owner's who think "even thinking about putting CNG in 8th gen is a crime"

    You are quite lucky to get Honda Civic without any premium. 2,3 months ago, Honda Civic had 1.5 Lac Rs premium. Probably the premium is reduced due to the news of upcoming Civic in 2012.

    Oriels in general have longer wait time than "VTi"s
    Investors like Oriels more

    Lol... It's not that... I have seen many people running their 8th gens on cng... But not sure about it's performance and consumption...
    As far as our plan is concerned, we don't have any plans of converting it to cng... But I would love our respected members to share their experiences with cng in their 8th gens:... Also, any feedback regarding installation charges on cng kit is anticipated...
