    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.

    Project Reborn 8th Gen Civic 2007 - 272964
    AOA,

    Nice project bro. These headrest dont come only in Hybrid models as i own a euro 8th Gen Civic which comes with these headrests. Moreover the rims that deadlyflame suggested you are also of my car and the difference is of only 3K. When i was buying them i was getting OEM 15" rims for 22 and these rims which are 16" were bought for 25K from Cha Sultan Pindi. But believe you me that there is a lot of difference in looks when you compare 15" with 16". So i would suggest the max cost difference including rims and tyres will be around 8 to 10K. 3K will be the difference in rims and around 5 to 7K will be the difference in tyres. Best of luck with your project and keep us posted with pictures and stuff. Looking forward for the update and pictures

    Rubber profile and overall diameter will get lower with 205/55. It's a few percentage less than 195/65-15 and that will create problems for me because the road to my farm is super rough and bumps will scrape the car as well a bit easier. I swapped my 9th gen to 205/60-16 and it felt absolutely fine.
