    My advice would not be directly applicable in Pakistan. I am sure the experts will reply soon enough.

    Congrats ... On your purchase .. Post some pics also ..

    About the crystal lights you can get it from Khan Autos opposite chaudry sons in sadder Peshawar .. He has a lot of parts and accessories for pardo but he is very expensive.

    If you want I can arrange lights from here (Dubai), last time I asked it was around AED 600/- for the pair which is very reasonable price.

People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    why are you guys forcing him to do stuff when his car is OK - the preventive stuff is just a timing belt change, check the fan clutch for proper functioning and check/replenish/replace fluids as necessary. Clean out the air ways and EGR to ensure proper engine breathing.

    For nozzles leave those alone and work on them when you hear nailing or have a hard time starting or just stupid smoking with loss of power. If you mess with the pump you will have to set it with a dial gauge and adapter - or it will be like a blind doctor trying to perform brain surgery.

    I would just run a bottle of liqui moly purge through the system for proper functioning.

    yes when u buy a second hand vehicle, just flush out all oils and filter and get them replaced with genuine one. If vehicle is a bit old then it is wise to replace timing and fan belts.

    Great ! He must have reconsidered his prices cuz when I asked him about 6 months ago he was asking 30,000 for the pair with the indicator lights ...

    Anyways waiting for the face lifted pics ...
