    Eagle eye and cat eye are almost same mechanically.
    You can get 2005-6 easy
    Parts are easily available
    Not that expensive
    Manual give b/w 10-12 km/l with ac
    In my opinion best car in this price
    In my 250000km usage haven't seen a factory fault

    No idea about karachi. But in lahore 700-950k. In karachi it must be 50-100k less
    No experience with prosmatic but heard about its bad avg, around 8-9 kmpl
    And In my personal opinion vti is better than exi. Because not much difference in price but more options

    Okay. And vti oriel just has sunroof and all the features. But if it's just "VTI", so what will be excluded ? I know that vti doesn't have sunroof..

    Both are the same cars . but go for VTI as it has better fuel economy . secondly price depends on the condition here in Lahore very clean Eagle fully loaded or base VTI would cost you around 10-11+ lakh but again depending on the condition . Thirdly i have been driving 2005 VTI manual for like 6 years , There is no such major issue with this model . Overall its a very comfortable and smooth car even at high speeds or on long journey . My car gives me around 15-16 km per liter with AC on highway and 12 in city so fuel economy depends on the engine condition alot .but keep one thing in mind that you have to maintain this car like regularly bcz once this model starts giving problem then its a nightmare . and car history is very important so buy it from a reliable guy otherwise its headache , and keep only one mechanic who knows his work . I hope you get a decent condition ride and you will like it alot !!

    The VTI and exi have different engines.
    1.6L dual VTEC in vti
    1.5L non-VTEC in exi

    Vti has a sunroof in the 'oriel' .
    Exi doesn't come with a sunroof.

    Pre facelift Exi came without four wheel disc brakes. After facelift it came with 4 wheel disc brakes.

    Our civic prosmatec is giving 9-10 kmpl with ac these days.
    In winters it gave around 11.5 kmpl and once it went just a bit over 12 this feb.

    Honda spare parts for this model are common. Even Bilal Gunj is filled with same shape England model and Japanese parts.

    In terms of maintenence: parts, oils and filters are on the higher side. But if you do timely maintenence and use genuine parts only, then your car will run trouble free. Ours has clocked 172K and still running strong.

    I don't think there are any factory faults. I'd suggest you get an eagle eye civic as it will be newer and personally it looks better. Please have the car checked by a denter and painter. Get the full service history cause if you get a beat up Honda, you're gonna be spending a lot of money on it. So do a thorough check of the car before buying it.

    Fully loaded vti are easily available under 1000k.

    I can say best car in the budget. Go for VTI oriel. Try to get manual one.

    Bro, it's located in Lahore. And just so you don't know, It's a market where you can buy any car part, obviously used and brought in Pakistan through xyz methods . I don't know the name of this type of market in Karachi. Maybe its shershah, not sure. Obviously there must be one in Karachi. It'll be useful to get stuff like a power steering pump, fuel pump, the whole engine etc as Honda quotes unreasonable prices for these things.

    Bitten? What do you mean by that? Rubber of car's sunroof is fine. No cracks if that's what you mean.
    I don't live in Karachi so can't help you there.
