    I Wish Just Like People IMPORT These Vehicles...People Also import Proper Maintenance replacement Parts For These Cars Also ....!

    Its A Nice Car....But If Only Is Well Worth if You Are Find Spares And Regular And Random Replacement Parts Here...!

    People Usually FORGET Abt That..Even Cars Flooded On Road Don't Have All Spares Available...So Its An Issue Of Our Market Here...!

    @SER_GTR .. well replacement parts availability of JDM s can never match local manufactured cars. That's been a fact since forever and unlikely to change. But lots of other things have changed for the good. Like availability of JDM parts has increased drastically in the past decade specially in larger cities. Even self importing through online purchases now possible in case of need. Local mechanics much more aware of modern engines now. Maintenance parts like filters is no more an issue now. And last but not the least, enthusiasts now not compromising on value for money quality vehicles out of resale fear.
    All in all, things moving in the right direction as far as I'm concerned

    Yes Online Buying Importing From DUBAI Is Option But Cost Factor remains...! Although These issues Remain Yet People Buy Imported Vehicles In Good Quantity....! For Reliability Sake...

    I Wonder if Someone Just Like Others Who Import Cars Can Also Import Their Parts.....Most Of These Modern Vehicles Required Sensor Changes And Many Of Things After Couple Thousand Km's...When They Need..They Get Caught Either In Hands Of Those Mechanics Who Try Everything But NOT The Proper Things..If They Find...NO Parts Available...So Sourcing Them In Junk yard Is Only Option Left

    I Really Wish I Can Get Some Time So I Atleast Can Get Hands On main Parts Availability So People Can Atleast Facilitate From Them...!

    I truly acknowledge that your concern is genuine and many enthusiasts share your sentiments in this regard. All i know is that when i imported vezel back in November/December people even didnt know its name, let alone the availability of any spares. Now normally people wait for spares to buy the car, with vezel it happened the other way around. People liked it and started buying. All of a sudden there was a huge influx and within no time, now spares available even in Lahore as importers were forced to due to demand. Same was the case with vitz back in 2003/4 and with kei cars in 2009/10. Sometimes, one has to take the initiative and i for one have never shied away from one.

    Whenever the new model of some car start hitting roads in Pak. Within 2~3 months its Parts become available in Market. Which are purely manufactured in Pak. but nicely packed and outside on box we can read “Made in Japan or China”.
    What if we cannot or donot want to import original parts? atleast we can make very good looking but inferior material copies to sell them 4 times high price. lol.

    BTW, this model looks at-least better than Vitz. Congratulations.

    Agreed, filters, engine oil and other maintenance parts must be had in best possible quality for long term desired results.

    If I import full container of original parts of Toyota, Mitsubishi, etc. then less than 0.001% of us have power to buy the original products because these are so very expensive.
    Eventually I will end up for having no sales and have to find some guy from scrap market to buy my imported parts as B/C grade at low prices. And next time I will think to import UPS which I would still be able to sell in Pak. for next 50 years.

    By the way, it took nearly 15 years for Pakis to understand that more than 90% of imported parts are fake and only produce in Pak. with imported stamps.

    US consumer reviews for Mirage. Even there, people now preferring good mileages and comfy small rides rather than all-out power when it comes to city drives. In our country with current duty structure and urban family setups, this option appeals even more in under 1.1 million PKR for a 2012 4.5A grade car.
