I dont want him to go through any hassles in looking for options so I will be in Pak for two weeks and want to get it sorted for him.

    Toyota will ask for a lot of money just for a simple nav card. What's the most viable and effective solution to make navigation work for his ride? Any help would be hugely appreciated. The solution shouldn't be very techy as he would struggle with such solutions.

    Many thanks.

    If you can afford get Grande, otherwise 1.6 is fine and I enjoy its driving as I upgraded from 9th Gen Corolla. Grande has new engine and CVTi transmission while 1.6 has inherited engine and transmission from 10th Gen Altis.

    If you have the funds for Grande then by all means go for it
    Altis 1.8 Cruisetronic would also be good option
    Have driven a Grande ALOT of times and it's a treat to drive

    I face the same situation, force insurance is non sense, I told them it's my car I paid it if not insured then what is your risk, but useless they are rude. They not book without registration n insurance in any case.

    There are two guys in F10 markaz market. One is Al Sheikh traders and other is Shahid. Visit them and i am sure you will find almost everything you need for your car.

    I booked mine from Hyderabad. The sales guy only asked me once at the time of booking and then at the time of delivery if I wanted to seek their service regarding insurance and registration. They never forced me to do it. Better make a written complain to Competition Commission of Pakistan, Toyota Japan, and IMC, and see what they do.

    Personally I think registration should be done as part of the booking process irrespective to what car you buy and from where.

    The government is trying to introduce registration at booking from what I read a few months back.

    I am not sure that he is still there but he makes leatherette seat covers very well and I got for my Corolla in 2005 which were in great shape (except drivers seat obviously which had very small chipping off ) till 2015 when I sold the car. The color and fitting were both perfect and gave quality look and I could clean them with just a soapy rag.

    Have a look. He had a shop besides Toyota Islalmabad, Aabpara (main suharwardy road side). There is a tyre shop and an accessories/decoration shop and in between them there is a small corridor and his shop is inside.

    On an other note I have stopped using seat covers. Both of my cars are without seat covers since day 1. I may put covers on them once I use up the original seats fully and once they start losing shape and fading sets in. I enjoy the original fabric seats so much and in case of any spill or spot, I just use Astonish upholstery, one spray and all marks are gone.

    I hardly enjoyed the original seats of my previous Corolla and the next owner still have those seat covers, I saw recently. So what is the point of preserving them for whom and after 10-15 years even if the seat covers are removed the original seats would still come out worn out and faded

    Thank you sir. You make a very good point. I thought the fabric was prone to getting dirty fairly quickly given its colour. Where did you get the cleaning product for your seats? I might look into that. Personally, I am not a fan of putting on seat covers myself. I've never had any on my previous car.

    You are welcome. I tried Astonish Upholstery spray, (around 200 rupees available at most departmental stores) and it easily removed tomato ketchup marks from rear seat. There was a small spot I cleaned on front passenger seat, other than that seats are still neat and clean given the car arrived in my hands on April 30, 2015.

    Another high end product is Nanoskin Upholstery which you can buy from Nanoskin Pakistan facebook page for about 1000 rs (not sure about latest price).

    I used 3M Scotch-guard. 1 can is enough..Rs.750, and if there's any stain, just wipe away with a damp cloth, no issues.

    No, there isn't a single Corolla here which is locally made and has an immobilizer. I am not sure about the imported ones. But to be fair, Honda City doesn't have an immobilizer either. So, they should have atleast put one in their 1.8 variants when comparing with Civic - which does have immobilizer.

    We have Swift which has it, we have liana which has it, we have Wagon R which has it, and so - although we can only dream of this - an immobilizer should be made mandatory for all cars.

    Also, it is not Toyota's fault that Corollas are stolen more as compared to Honda City and the need for an immobilizer is felt more for Corollas.

    Agreed bro. Just to add, even Bangladeshi and Nigerian variants of Corolla come equipped with immobilizer and 6 air bags

    Even if there is no immobilizer in Corolla it can not be compared with city and swift at all. Corolla is a compact sedan.

    OTOH IMC appears playaying hand in hand with the car lift mafia by not providing the immobilizer.

    Just a question.
    Can Steering control switches be installed on the Altis 1.6.
    The infotainment system has an option for steering wheel control settings.
