    Default Project Reborn 8th Gen Civic 2007

    *Final results, few before & after starting from Post#315 onwards, cost edits at bottom of this very post#1*

    Dear All, I had been looking for a good trouble free car for home use. As always, prices are insane around. Have sold & bought many Reborns. When selling, you don't get a good offer & when buying, you can't find a good car in reasonable price. Repainted cars are also overpriced.

    I'd rather get a scratched faded car which hasn't been earlier repainted instead of buying an already repainted/touched car & God knows what underneath that make up to save money properly if I have to be budget conscious. If you should then save properly & if not then spend without thinking.

    My mind frame was to save money as this will be a run around car for school & market duties.

    I got my hands on a 2007 Oriel Prosmatec with originally 120000 on the clock (as maintainence book is there) almost in original paint with 2 rear pieces sprayed. Interior looks new, apart from detailing required & drive is exactly what a well maintained Reborn should be, a real charm. Everything in perfect working form, from lights to ac to driving experience.

    THE CATCH IS: some paint is faded, scratches/raggar somewhere. In a nutshell it's almost original but dull in looks. I fell for it as price i managed to bargain was unbelievable even by standards of an accidented repaired car

    Will take delivery & immediately give it for bake painting. It's kind of a project car in terms of restoring the looks back to charming.

    Will post proper and better pictures I.A once I am healthier and weather gets better. Not bragging, but these pictures taken from an ordinary phone (my iPhone died with water the day i got heatstroke) are not doing justice to the car. So hopefully phone, weather and health would be favorable in a few days.

    Aesthetically the car is just like its out of the showroom but what about the performance aspects? Mileage? Previous history?

    This is personally my 7th or 8th Reborn since 2006. Not including the ones present in family. And the reason i bought this specific car despite its dull aesthetics was its performance and drive. Far more superior than other so called JANYEN cars that were available. Right hydraulic mount was being mischevious which is a common understandable issue. And the adjuster is making some noise, I'd say 30% problematic but i plan to change it which is again an issue with Reborns. But both these problems are not something critical or a major defect.
