    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.

    I have a DSLR at home, my brother is fond of Cameras. He spends money on lens and camera related items more than I spend on cars. But I can't say he's a monkey as he's much older than me. He'll kill me if he knows I'm making fun of his camera obsession.

    A larger side wall will obviously cushion the bumps better than 55. However, just sharing my experience with the 55 profile. We did go on a heavy bumpy road and the tires absorbed the bumps well, there was good cushion effect. However, I've never traveled on bumpy roads with reborn's original tire size (195/65/15) so can't compare the cushioning effect of the two profiles.

    I have a 2007 Oreal Prosmatec and wouldn't want to sell it below 12 lacs. The odo is 130,000 but a lot of brand new parts have been installed in it e.g. New mounts, new shocks, new tyres, new plugs, new brake pads, new engine belts, new thermostat valve, new radiator, new radiator pipes, new radiator cap, all of the parts being OEM.

    If I was to sell my car which I will in the coming months, I can't lower the price to 10,00,000. That would be just too low for a car I've taken care of so much and loved so much.

    Driven it up and down Karachi Islamabad many times with civic being the only Honda between all corollas going up country . Don't know why I don't see any civics on the national highway or maybe a very limited amount of them are going such distances anyway.

    I know some people might think it's very overpriced but the most important thing is under the hood and it's in pristine condition. Scratches and all are something one cannot escape in Karachi.

    Anyways that would be my reason for selling it at a jacked up price. Have seen many other Reborns, 2009,2010 and all, don't even come close to how I've maintained it. Other good drivers and Honda lovers would have too but I'm one of them, safe to say.

    Yeah you're right about it in a way. In my reborn I installed 205/65/15 Dunlop Veuro 302 or 303 can't remember and too lazy to walk down to the garage to check the tyres, but they were a charm to drive. The ride changed a lot in terms of underbody hitting speed breakers and all with heavy load and all. Just the overall experience of driving the car changed.

    I too have previously always gotten 205/65-15 in all my Reborns I have kept. And it's a serious treat in terms of comfort after 195/65-15 Eurostars. And this is a major reason I'm more inclusive towards Oem 15 Oriel Alloys and 205/65-15

    Oh definitely getting it leather stitched. Tried finding a good oem leather steering but mazza nahi aya. Aur jin steerings ka mazza a raha tha they were a bit expensive. Much much many times more than cost of stitching. Have thought of perforated leather stiching at lower 3/4 portion (till hand grips above upper 2 spokes) and plain from the top.
    Like in this picture (Obviously without the red logo as my original one is just fine)

    Hey. Mind if I ask how you got those buttons on the steering wheel? Or is it a hybrid which already has it.

    Plus can you tell me where to get the steering wheel stitched and is there any movement in the stitching when turning the wheel?

    No Sir, this is not my steering. These are just pictures for reference that i have posted. About the stitching, you can get it done from any good guy who does leatherite poshish work. My guy is in Lahore else would have sent you to him.
    The buttons are now easily available ranging from 4000-6000 depending upon availability and source.
