    Question respray

    well, i cant bear to see my car full of scratches. it requires no denting only a good respray. what price will it sell at after respray. rite now i am getting 5 lac offers. note that the car has a number of jdm upgrades like jdm radiator, jdm rear seat, jdm seatbelts, bigger rear springs, jvc pre wid usb support, electronic power steering, the big light (found in margalla plus and jdm margalla).

    no respray. it might make the price go down.

    get it compounded and polished.

    you got that right. she came here scratchless but the density of motorbikes is directly proportional to the number of dents and the density of jelous idiots is directly proportional to scratches

    the dilemma is that i love this car. you can see that from my avatar name. it is a half jdm with only an engine swap needed. the car did 185kph top speed and i learnt driving wid her so she is very close to me. but my big brother owns it and he doesnt want to spend any more money on it, he is after an idsi city (which i think being honest is that it is a samosa on wheels wid a rickshaw engine. no offence to owners of that car). if i can persuade him to keep her all will be done coz he is double minded. he is 50-50 between margalla and city

    Ok, here's something unconventional which i'm gonna suggest. Take detailed snaps/pictures of your car before going to painter... Show these pictures as a proof to the next buyer to prove that the car was not accidented. scratches and dents were the reason you opted to spray it.. not an accident.
    I don't know if this is gonna help.....

    which i think being honest is that it is a samosa on wheels wid a rickshaw engine.
    aala yar hehehehehe

    yar its simple if you want to sell then dont think about paint job just market the car as it is this will show the costumers that it is with genuine paint.
    if you want to keep the car which you should then go for a nice paint job and keep the beauty with you

    The truth is that a 2005 City is way better than Margalla.... I think your brother should go for it... Nothing lasts for ever... you should be ready to accept and greet changes... Change is good. Change is life

    bro i agree that it is, but except the paint the car is immaculate. and it is well upgraded. we have put so much in it that it is unique. and being honest i had plans for a dohc g13b swap. its so good that i can say that my particular one is better than the city. i hate the pointed face and the fat looks of the city and the econodrox engine is just salt on the wounds. had there been any plans for a 2002 or 1998 civic i would gladly have accepted and there is already a fat cowrolla in the garage

    well nobody got anything.

    i just prepared a whole list
    1. stiff suspension
    2. bad performance and less top speed
    3. big body= difficult parking in a congested garage
    4. expensive spares
    5. ugly looks from the front.
    6. the process of restoration and upgradation of this car will go all over again like the margalla. but the margalla is ready except of the paint.

    7. we had good memories with this car, it has hit 185 kph on m2. and we actually preffered to go to murree on this rather than the cowrolla coz of its reliability

    i wonder why people think resprayed cars are not a good buy.
    i would never want to buy an old scratched car if i had a choice between that, and an old resprayed car with a decent enough paint job.
    people these days have painting booths even in the open, those are a big NO to get your car repainted from, but if you're getting it done from a good reputable shop of a 3s pit, then definitely go for it.
    people dont know zilch about cars usually, and they dont know how to respect the owners, its just a cliche which they are following, that * ayee hayee payeenn, gadi tuhadi dobara paint huwe jay, assi nahin leni * wtf, jerks.
