    Default JDM Time - Passo 2012

    Aoa friends.
    ...
    I have started this thread to share my new ride i.e. Toyota Passo 2012, so that people can get benefit from this thread and I can share my problems and get guidance from experienced members.
    .
    Before proceeding further I want to thanks to Allah Almighty, who has bestowed me (and all of us) with unlimited blessings? I want to thanks my parents for their incalculable hard work for us and family for the support? I am obliged to PW and its members who were always there to guide me esp. @muradi @huzaifa.haroon @karnol @us000 @asim867 @CerwinVega @villain @aliusman420 @Nabz90 etc.

    Was Anxiously Waiting for this threadu . Heartiest Congrats to u Usman Bro. Ma Sha Allah you got a GEM. May She Serve u a long time without any problems or difficulties.
    Few Things i would suggest after getting your hands on her.
    1. Always Avoid using high pressure water on Engine as it can damage sensors.
    2. Use 5w-30 Oil for optimum performance and fuel Economy.
    3. CVT Oil. Now here is the tricky part. The time to change the engine oil is after 40k kms but iv'e experienced in many jdms that the oil is less when imported. ( My Alto 2011 jdm 21k on the odo and Mira E 2011 12k on the odo had less oil which needed to be topped up ) . So do give it a check.
    4. For Body id suggest getting the car compounded as the car has a big date with dust during transportation and dirt sticks to the body. So compounding will bring the fresh look after it. Then buy a pair of good Microfibre cloths and Meguiars White Wax or Gold Class Wax and use it once in a month. Will keep her shiny
    6. Get the car intercleaned or use the method of interior cleaning i told u before. ( results r same and later suggestion is recommended as interior is already A Graded.
    7. As far as side mirrors r concerned the first thing i would do after buying a car formyself would be to get metal brackets made. Now that depends on your city situation if that is required or not.
    Any more help required then feel free to ask. We all r here to help
    PS: If u r using Whatsapp then pm me your number. Would like to add u to the PW whatsapp group

    Havoline and Zic A+ both r good, If u can find original Zic then nothing is better than that but if finding original zic is difficult so u can go with havoline
    Leppon is good enough if u change at every oil change but for optimum performance and long lasting use Toyota Original Air/Oil Filter. Is expensive but will last long...

    Default Car at Yokohama Port

    At Yokohama Port...

    As the auction house was away from port, so it cost 15000 yen freight to transport car from auction house to Yokohama port... The cars which are auctioned in Yokohama or nearby cities do not have these charges...

    So this is 1st tip to purchase car from Japan, U can avoid freight by carefully selecting the auction house... Freight charges varies with distance...

    Default More pics at Yokohama port...

    2nd Tip to purchase imported car from local market... Even if the dealer is reluctant (or hiding) to show the auction sheet ask him to provide pics of the car at Japan Port..

    Port pics are in very detail as u can claim any damage on the shipping company in case of loss, so they maintain the record in the form of pics for evidence...

    In this way u'll come to know that the car is not major accidented, though a R grade car can be scratch less as well...
