    Default Suggestions for add ons and security for NEW COROLLA GLI 2012

    Inshallah i would be booking/buying NEW COROLLA 1.3 GLI in September this year after selling my 2004 Xli which i also bought zero meter and it has already served me 140,000kms+ with no problems at all.I have been running that car for last 4-5years on CNF, but now i would be driving the new gli on petrol

    I am starting this thread to get advise/suggestions on the following
    *TAKAFUL (i would not prefer insurance)
    *TRACKER
    *OTHER SECURITY SYSTEMS
    *TYRES & ALLOYS
    *CD PLAYER (i am not a big music fan, just want to put that lcd thing as it looks cool and enhances the interior looks)
    *INTERIOR ACCESSORIES
    *ROYAL SHIELD
    *ANY OTHER WHICH MEMBERS MAY SUGGEST

    Bro, insurance is strongly recommended.

    Gli ka pre installed sound system wase hi bohat fit ha, LCD lagwani ha tou Toyota walo se Altis wala lagwa lein.

    Royal Shield! Not a bad idea if ya buying black or wine red

    Now a days, almost every security system is a piece of cake for the thieves. Apni personal satisfaction k liye lagwa lein tracker

    Save the original interior silver panels by replacing them with Altis wooden panels.




    ^^And, IGNORE THE ABOVE POST^^

    While searching on internet i have found anti theft device:

    Ravelco - Magazine & Video Page

    I sent them an email whether that device is available in Pakistan? their reply email is below:

    Unfortunately, RAVELCO is without a Dealer or Distributor in your area. Until we can find and establish a reputable representative in your area, you can buy a RAVELCO Anti Theft Device directly from us (the manufacturer) and have it installed by your own local auto dealer or mechanic shop (cost of installation approximately $100 - $200 - Maximum 2 hours installation time) Most any mechanic can install the RAVELCO without the need of any special tools. The Ravelco will not affect and can be installed along with any other type of security system.

    We would like to stress four important points:

    1. When you buy directly from us (the manufacturer), you have an opportunity to have your RAVELCO installed whenever and wherever you wish. (Your convenience -- and safety -- are our primary concern.)

    2. To date, no vehicle protected by the RAVELCO has EVER been stolen, and the product has been on the market for 35 years.

    3. Most insurance companies will discount your auto insurance premiums once you advise them that your vehicle is protected by the RAVELCO.

    4. The RAVELCO is guaranteed for life.

    If you would like for us to ship a RAVELCO Anti Theft Device to you, please follow these 3 steps below.


    1.) Please send wire transfer $369.95 - US Dollars Total (UPS 5-day shipping to any place in the world is included) Wire transfer is the fastest and easiest way to pay. Please send another email for wiring instructions.
    RAVELCO Anti Theft Device
    6920 Oak Knoll Drive
    Richmond, Texas 77406-8660


    Sorry - we do not accept Credit or Debit Cards or PayPal.
    2. Please include your name, shipping address and telephone number. We ship by UPS, so we will need an address to ship to. We cannot ship to a PO Box.

    3. Be sure to include the year and type of vehicle it will be installed in so we can send you the proper installation instructions.

    We are the manufacturer, not a reseller so therefore there are absolutely no refunds or returns.

    Please view the News videos on our web site at


    www.ravelco.com/magvideo

    if you do - you will become a customer!

    Sincerely,

    The Ravelco Team

    Aha125... color would be medium silver, as i have before kept black and white colors and would like to go for some metallic low maintenance colors. The Toyota lcd is with navigation and will cost 45k... can we have a cheaper solution to it.
    Yaar, i am getting bad reviews on the trackers, but i have one question, all INsurance/takaful companies make it compulsory to install a tracker, if the tracker was soooo bad then why would they. Furthermore, i need suggestions on which comany tracker should i install.
    Whats the cost of ALTIS good quality wooden panel.. waisay factory fitted kee baat hee alag hootee hai :-)

    @Silentassassin1 ... Sir jee, i would need details on
    *TRD kit.. what is it
    *Pioneer lcd price and model
    *Door sills?
    *Cost of lenso and advanti alloys

    Bhai I've no idea about prices. Hamein dad k friend ne through Daewoo express LCD Screen bheji thi. It's no doubt very useful but it lacks multi taking. Like, you cannot use navigation and music together.

    Aik friend ne pioneer ka lia tha it got damaged. According to my knowledge, Altis navigation is on top at the moment

    Trd body kit, see fireblade GLI facelift , its awesome! plus that car had advanti 17" alloys, don't know much about price , m not sure, door sills that corolla sill that glows up when you open the door, but you gotta have trd body kit and smoked head light plus taillights, looks gorgeous! further you could get a lip spoiler too

    Lolz Yes, you r right, car snatching on gun point is normal thing in Karachi.

    For tension free ride and good sleep, i pay handsome amount to insurance company. Lolz. If someone comes to me, i ll give him my car, though normally I keep a gun with me

    insurance is good for new cars but as they get old,insurance isnt really good then as they charge depreciation n give you really less as compared to market value
    em waiting for transfer of reg to get mine insured as well as all locks n security systems are just useless though here theives prefer the cars with least of such stuff to get away quickly
