    agreed most ppl do this, and what do they do later on, they put chinese crappy chrome parts all over the car and dont pay any heed to it's maintainance. after a few months the car is ruined and then they change for any other "genian gaddi"

    i am having another fear bro, it seems evident that you'll park a honda beside your corolla and this thing is killing me that ur cow will jump over honda some day and............
    comment aside herez what i would prefer serial wise knowing lil bit more than others
    1- change the power plant to whatever is suitable for your machine
    2- paint job............ na, who cares
    3- sale is last option, but if your bro is stuck on city and you feel IDSI is slow and bla bla which she isnt, therez also 7 speed steermatic, do commment on this one i wanna have ur opion on this one,
    and if you wanna have honda in ur garage go for civic EXi or VTI no other, if turely fallen in love with city get 97 shape or one i have, no other city right

    Edit: regarding that power plant thingy, i wont recommend EFI for inherently Carb car, why i dont recommend just give it a thought urslef calmly!!!!!!!!!

    no i didnt refered to your this g13 swap idea, i was speaking generally, infact i know nothing about the g13 but its always safe to have a bolt on swap, n its not only the head that make a block an efi, its much deeper rola if its own kind, let me try to find you a thread where same was discussed for D series.

    Edit: here you go, you've been to there already, just go thru all posts and you'll know what i was talking about, cheers time for me to goto bed now gotta go to office tomorrow.........

    DO the people of pakistan have no knowledge
    How does respraying effect a car , does it slow it down or lower its performance or looks ugly
    In Saudia ,America and countless countries people get there Audi's mecs aand beemers resprayed and Why can't we do the same in pakistan it doesnt effect the resale
    Its because off those f****** dealers and less experienced painter that people have developed this thought

    yar they just want it all for free so respray is just another reason to reduce the car's value, if it is done from a good place it is all advantage and market shudnt be lowered, but here the reverse happens

    well, the block is still slightly different, the extras are the sensors and all which i think wont cause too much variation in weight. the efi conversion idea is a big rolla, if i manage to stop bro then a g13b will go down the hood in a few years time

    If i was in your shoes i would go for the paint but a proper one, yes it takes time but ur lucky since you mentioned that you have another car at home so you could make do untill its done. I have a 97 vti and its resprayed, but its clean, no dents no scratches nothing, and when you sit in an old car which is clean like that its a whole different feeling, point is people here talk about resale and all this crap, ill sell my car at the price i want and if no one wants a resprayed car then they can buy something else that has a 1000 scratches and no paint and call it genuine!! forget ppl, seriously ppl dont have that much knowledge about cars here, they here stuff from the dealers and then speak the same language as them... Go for the paint, i would for sure and also ur right the idsi city is one of the stupidest cars ive ever driven , it doesnt move at all, waste of money in my opinion

    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.
    agreed ... thats wht i think
