    Default My new ride......Corolla GLi

    Dear all,
    I just bought this new Corolla GLi for myself from Motor Mania, Islamabad. Had to pay Rs. 138k extra as premium for instant delivery. The photos are not good quality as I took these from my cell phone. Need your advice on from where to get CNG installed (with emulator and advancer) in Islamabad/Pindi. Regards.

    Mashallah, Mubarak Ho Bro.

    Regarding CNG, I will suggest that drive this baby for at least 1500/2000 KMs and then go 4 the CNG if U have 2.

    @Voyager: Thankyou bro for your Mubarikbad. Sure I'll put it on CNG after 1500-2000km. Do you know some good place to get CNG installed.

    @bilalkhan28: I had no choice but to pay this extra 138k because otherwise I would have got delivery in 7-8 months. It was difficult for me to stay without a car for this long (as I had to sell my existing car to book the new one). As for petrol, I drive about 2000km per month and petrol prices are continuously rising.

    @gladiator375: On petrol, I am getting one km in 4.5 Rs. On CNG I expect to get one km in under 2 Rs. Don't you think it'll be wise to put it on CNG, if I recover the price of CNG kit in just 9 months?

    @khmalik: 40k??? can't believe. I checked with all major car dealers in Islamabad/Rawalpindi, and the premium ranged from 120k to 160k. For moonlight silver color it was 120k, but I had to pay 18k extra just because of this color. Regards.

    @asd123: Yes, it does have a footrest. It is there to rest your left foot on during a long drive. No, it doesn't infringe with the clutch - it is at a safe distance.

    The Premium amount on GLI is around 60 to 70 thousand, any color. As a test case ask Motor Mania to sell this car, immediately. See the reaction. The dealer will NOW tell you the REAL ON.

    As regards to CNG, One is CNG Complex at Pindi stadium. Other is Rawal CNG near National Market. Cost with regular fitting 47500 and with so called "executive" fitting 49000. Lendi Renzo EFI kit. Get the Influx 55 Kg cylinder because EKC is heavy in wieght (about 15kg) than influx. Best cylinder is Faber but the cost is toooooooooooo much. Emulator and advancer would also be part of kit.

    But I am surprised at the ON amount. You have fooled by the dealer. Should have done some research. Anyway, now enjoy the ride. By June the premium shall come down to 15000.
    The tragedy of life is not what we suffer, its rather what we miss.

    @hasnain2005: Thankyou for advice on CNG. I understand that I might have paid a bit higher premium, but not too higher than the prevailing rates in market, because I did check with several well-known car dealers in twin cities, including New Deen Motors, General Automobile, Kadir Motor World, Aftab Motors and World Range Motors.

    But anyways, now that I have purchased the car, its no use crying over the spilt milk....

    @cool_baloch: I agree......

    @Voyer That was just an statement in the state of excitement....Do put it on CNG....

    Well The CNG station in I-10/3 infront of Azim motors is quite Old....The mechanic "Hanif" is quite expert in CNG matters...He really took good care of my good ol' Datsun...(I recently sold it out)....But can't suggest from where to buy the CNG KIT.....I hope lots of experts in this regard can be found on this website.

    @Veyron congrats over your ride! if you would have posted here before buying GLI that you are really interseted in purchasing it.. maybe some of the members here could have offered you their services. anyhow as you said no use crying over spilt milk! drive & enjoy...

    also do post your experience on Petrol & when you get it on CNG.

    @Poplu: Thanks a lot for mubariks, bro.

    @mps: Thanks for greetings. Sure I'll post my experience on both petrol and CNG. So far I've done 400km. On petrol it gives 12-13 km/lit on average in city driving. Pick and performance are excellent on petrol. I hope performance will not degrade much on CNG. Regards.

    hay veyron congrats on yr new ride. indeed it is a good car for normal driving. i have 03 gli and converted it to cng a couple of months ago. it is much better than my expectations. according to my research and experience the cng station in i-10, in front of suzuki azim motors is the best. i dont no its name but can give u its phone number. u go for italian landi renzo electronic kit with landirenzo emulator and advancer . the gue there named suleman shah will guide u. he is a goo guy and guides in the right direction.
    station's phone # 051-4445130
    suleman's phone number # 0301-5511942
    oh forgot to tell u that the average on cng is really good. it costs me 1.6 rupees per km in city and my driving style is not so smooth.
    how about VG30-DETT in nissan pulsar n12...
