    I have Yokohama blue earth on my vitz with 185 profile. It's an excellent tyre. Very soft and noiseless and no affect on fuel economy.

    185 is best one. The car also looks great and adds grip.

    In 185 Michelin is equally good.

    Hi Dr Sb, i just bought Passo 2013 and its basic package.

    Car is 51k driven, 4.5 with interior 'B'. Verified auction sheet. So wanted to know if i have to change following

    1- Engine Oil and filter? As car is 51k where as auction was done somewhere in jan/feb so same engine oil in car fir 4-5 months, should i change it ? I used to use Liqui Moly MoS2 oil in my last car so will continue with the same

    2- Air Filter ?
    3- What about spark plugs? Are they iridium coming with the car, if you suggest i get them checked now and any experience with iridium plugs in Passo?

    4- wanted to have Sofa seats, any suggestion about the cost and Place in Rawalpindi?

    5- Remote was not with the car but only steel key as it was misplaced. So what is the recommended place to have remote for passo and expected cost?

    6- should i get gear oil check, as per discussion in your forum it seems CVT and i used liqui Moly ear oils for my car last time, they do have CVT oil as well.

    Any other suggestion for the camera and dvd installation? And any precaution where i should be careful, last night i top-up with HOBC

    Will share actual pictures of the car in a while,

    First of all Congratulations for such a nice purchase...

    Plz share price in Pm...

    1. It is better to change Engine Oil and Oil Filter... Liqui Moly is perfect oil, i m using it in 5w30...

    2. Check Air Filter and change it only if dirty, use original Toyota Filters, or Leppon filters

    3. yes Plugs are Iridum, only get them cleaned

    4. Better to avoid sofa seats as they will be very expensive... But if u want them must, then check at Sultan ka khoo. i know a person who deals in seats..., For his contact no plz text/whatsapp me at 0333 564 1664...

    5. What kind of remote are u talking about, is it XL package with cut seats, push start, and climate control..? or u are talking about key remote...?

    6. Check CVT Oil Dipstick available in Passo, Use Toyota CVTF TC if required...

    7. For camera and LCD plz visit Saddar Neelam Market, Chinese ones ranges from 8-18k without/with navigation, branded ones fro 23-33k Pioneer, Kenwood etc...

    Plz Share Pics of your ride and stay in touch...

    Regards
    Keep Faith in Allah...

    Thanks Dr Sb for the appreciation and advice

    1- Oil changed to Liqui Moly, MoS2 with additive of Ceratec (ceratec is 300ml liquid, which need to be poured with engine oil, ceramic based oil where polymer sticks to engine part resulting reduced friction.) using from past many years in my different cars

    2-Air filter changed to lippon

    3- plugs cleaned

    4- installed Chines DVD good quality with back view camera from Saddar for 15k

    5- installed horn of lexus (paan paan) from sultan ka khoo

    6- Ac cabin filter haven't touched, but i think i should get it cleaned as well

    7- Transmission oil is the v good idea to check with, i will definitely get it checked. What is the change interval for transmission oil change according to user manual ?

    Car got smooth after oil's changed and filters as it was auctioned in feb some time thus it was right time to do so.

    is this problem persisting since day 1 ?
    does the fresh air re circle button when engaged / disengaged make any difference at all ?

    anyways its either stuck on fresh
    or some rubber piece missing from firewall area
