    Default new honda civic 2012 launched in srilanka

    a couple of months back i had seen the add for the new civic in a classified news paper and since i am into importing cars i found an immediate business oppertunity for pakistan and srilanka i tried calling them repeatedly but they didnt answer about a month back i was cruising down my daily way at night and to my astonishment i had seen the new civic in red i had a good glimpse at it looked awsome thaught of stopping and asking how did they get it but it was almost high and we wer doing 60 i thaught they would freak out so i let it be and it was a whole family so anyway then a few days back i spotted another one this time it was on the other side.

    but ill make sure the next time i spot one ill stop the driver and ask him the full details of the car

    heres the link of the honda stafford motors srilankas new honda link

    Honda | Sliranka | CIVIC

    i am just getting a bit too foisty about it

    personally i am not a big fan of a civic but just thinking of it being the new model i would love to bring down atleast 3 units to pakistan of which id sell 2 hot molten lava cakes immediately and use the 3rd attention grabber for a while and sell it off too

    to my knowledge i have digged into my japanese counterparts but still no news or id some how send a few units to pakistan with immediate effect cuz we people dwell on the rolla civic thing unlike here wheare you would find approximately 80 % of the world auto motive brands

    and almost 80 % of toyotas wide range

    but here to its no different toyotas always at the top of the trade

    keep in mind the duty structure on cars is quiet different we pay 5 million + for civics and axios,i currently use an axio x grade 2010 4k on the dial cost me 4 million pak rs

    any ways so now i have my eyes turned towards toyota thailand but i dont have the same contacts with thailand as i do with japan normaly we use thailand only for double cabs and smart cabs

    and then we have uk

    so whats the best possible guidence i can get at the moment to import a civic to pakistan

    i desperately need to do this

    u can get them. but it would be expensive.. alot expensive.. first check if there is any tax rebate scheme in SL .. so u can get tax free exported.. then u would be paying duties.. then get the 1.6 and 1.8 evaluated from the local customs n excise..

    lastly check if atlas doesn't carry the sole distribution rights...
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. 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"

    for the toyota, indus has the sole rights.. even if u call thai or RSA. they would simply redirect u to indus, else u have to buy it from a local thai or south african car dealer.

    Question Possible....

    Is it not possible to have a local person buy a new Civic in Thailand or Sri Lanka and then you purchase the car from him and have it shipped over to Pakistan? That way distribution rights are not valid. Its just another used car being imported to Pakistan.
    :-)

    well that is a possibility, the possibility is i purchase it at an fob price which is common here because of the government permits but rether then fob slk i can order it fob pakistan which i think is quiet possible as they need money but as far as coomon sense goes they havent launched it properly here it self so how could the take orders for other countrys

    and i am not sure if these units which i have seen are from the local agent honda stafford or imported personally so there is a whole thing going on in my mind

    well and the other question u posed

    well yes atlas does have the sole rights to import brand new hondas and no one else can do so how ever we importers have a procedure to break that

    and that is you have to get the vehicle registered first in the country of origin and then get it canceled to export that is the normal procedure for all countries and we can do the same for pakistan and import any vehicle of our choice brand new or used through cancelation of registration

    for the questions u guys posed above

    well no brand agen in the country of mfu would directly export a vehcile to another be it even japan thai or rsa but a local buyer/dealer car retailer can register the vehicle under his name do a cancelation of registration and export the vehicle to where ever he wants

    thats the normal procedure how we go through when cuz people buying premios and allions preffer brand new so thats how we import u have to fiund if it is possible to order directly from the agent as it would eliminate one more middle man and arbitarily reduce the cost

    so yea that is what all the fuss is about "Cost" finding the best way arround to the best deal

    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
