    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.

    Pictures and updates coming soon

    You can go for a manual...can give upto 12 kmpl local and on long expect anything above 15 can cross even 20 mark :p
    Dw about resale as you will already be buying it at a lower price :p
    Btw about auto you can also achieve upto 11 on it you just have to be easy on pedal nothing else

    @arkhitekt
    How complex was the process of installing retractable mirrors in place of manual ones? I mean laying the wiring etc.
    From where did you get those installed and level of expertise?

    My car is originally an Oriel that comes with factory wiring and retractable side mirrors. The previous owner had fitted simple ones without indicator but retraction was working in those as well because they were from a hybrid civic.

    However the answer to your question: it's not that complicated, you will need a set of mirrors having retraction motor, a harness and grip for the same and a power window driver's side panel that has retraction button. Shouldn't be more than half an hour job

    Both not detailed.... lolz

    And catching up on work after the very long sickness holidays so haven't been eager enough to get it done yet. Waiting for humidity to go away as suffocating weather is making me lazy to go for such a job.

    But do drop your number in PM could otherwise meet when evening is casual and I am around phase 1, depending on your availability

    I have a manual Vti Oriel, recently bought. The only thing i did was replaced the fuel filter and clean the throttle body. Its giving me 13-14 in city with AC and on highway i have achieved 21 with AC on/off from time to time while going to Gujranwala from Islamabad via GT road. All you need is to keep you car well maintained and be easy on the pedals.

    Unfortunately I have a heavy foot and I like it when the car roars 😉. However I'm not a rash driver. 😎

    But yeah I already have all of them cleaned 🙂

    The Sunroof glass is an extremely rare after sales part. Probably one in a million case, unfortunate for you. I doubt it will be readily available as a spare. You will have to order and wait. You can give a shot to Bilal Gunj but might be difficult as they mostly have JDM parts and imported half cuts from Japan rarely have sunroof for 8th Gen.
