    @minex:

    This is very close to my office, anyways, that location has two show rooms on the Duty free shop side of the road:

    1. Adam Motors (Revo, etc.)
    2. Cherry Pakistan (QQ)

    On the other side I think Honda or Toyota or both dealers are located.

    I will have a closer look on Monday when I will hopefully be in Karachi.

    THIS IS GREAT NEWS...

    I wish they later on introduce the PROTON SATRIA NEO...its one heck of a coupe...

    1.3l and a hatch coupe... economical and fun to drive... imagine how good it would be for pakistani roads...

    anyways the lancers optras corollas and citys and lianas are in for trouble...

    because all the protons being launched are competitive cars..and theyre cheap( in other countries)...

    GEN-2 1300cc MPI
    GEN-2 1600cc MPI
    SAGA 1300cc Carburator Engine
    WIRA 1500cc EFI
    IMPIAN (WAJA) 1600cc MPI

    The pick of these cars is the WAJA... it will kill lancer and optra!
    RX-7? An RX-7? Really? I hope you know it's just a sports car with a washing machine under the hood.

    Gen2 looks promising. The car has a good shape and classy interior. If the price is good, it will be a big hit.

    Royal Automobiles can launch the best cars in the world but they WILL NOT SELL if they follow the pricing policies of DFML.

    Anywhere upwards of Rs.725,000 for the 1300cc Gen2 and Proton will be History.

    For then it will be competing directly with the Liana, which is a very well equipped good value for money car, nobody is going to buy a Malaysian import if they can get a Liana for the same price.
