    Default My new ride: Honda Civic VTI Oriel Prosmatic (Model: Feb 2004) Cat Eyes

    Dear All,

    I have been a user of Hyundai Santro Exec 2004 Model for 9 very good years. I bought it zero meter and used it till 65,000 kms. Sold that for a good 500,000 Rs. as it was in prestine condition. Will post it's pics too.

    Now have made a great switch to a Honda Civic VTI Oriel Prosmetic (2004) bought from a very good friend of mine who was a first owner of the car and used it well. The car was 114,000 kms on the odo when I bought, and without CNG. Obviously after switching from a 1000 cc to a 1600 cc automatic increased my fuel expenses by many folds but the pleasure of driving such an elegant vehicle is awesome. I usually travel to Hyderabad once in 2 months and frankly speaking, riding 350 kms in a day trip still leaves me refreshed and energized as the car is silent, subtle and amazingly comfortable.

    Now I realize that why people say once you've driven a civic, you're spoiled. Now, after the purchase, I am doing all the needful for the new ride to provide me a good service for years to come.

    PREVIOUS VEHICLE: SANTRO EXEC '04

    Thanks. I loved it too. But I switched because the backseat was too high a climb for my mother whenever the whole family went to anyplace. I changed it for the sake of comfort. Warna I was too much happy with my Santro.

    I Did, Yes. Bought it from them and had it maintained from there only. A very excellent facility, rather huge I must say.

    Thanks for the wishes. I still love my santro and frankly speaking, I was planning to keep it for a good 2 more years as it had nooo issues at all. Within 4-5k PKR, my whole month fueling was done. Now its approx square to that figure.

    But my reason for switching was comfort for family. Perhaps after some time, in case if the fueling would hurt more, I may switch to a 2007 Honda Steermatic 1.5 Litre engine. I am told its powerful as well as economical compared to my current Honda's fueling>? Is this info endored by the way?

    After the purchase, I noticed that the rims definitely needed some attention, so after thorough research I found a person at Gharibabad, where he charged 2,000 Rs and had them renewed. He took mine and replaced them with his old plain black rims for 3 days and after that, the good job is shown in above pictures. Seeing is believing.

    Then came the detailing session. I then started the looking for simple detailing products. Got inspired by Detailing Crew (DC). So, after market search I came to Metro at Gulshan and was bombarded with loads of stuff.

    PRODUCTS AT METRO, GULSHAN, KHI

    But with good decision support by a colleague, I went for the below products, which worked wonders.
