    Aoa friends.

    .
    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.

    Default Shipment

    The car was carried by APL shipment from Yokohama to Karachi port...

    Expected arrival was 10th July, but the ship was delayed and reached on 17th July...

    Shipment was smooth without any damage to the car, Thanx God...

    The cars are packed inside containers... Each container contain 4-5 cars...

    Shipment charges were 105000 yen...

    Some cars are packed in plastic sheets (to avoid scratches etc) by some shipping companies such as the Prado given in the pics, there will be difference in transport charges definitely.

    My car reached Khi port on 17th July as mentioned in shipment tracker, it was just one day before eid, so it remains within container in eid holidays...

    After eid the container was de stuffed, what i have listened is that port management is given to some private company for transparency, and they take pics and make videos of everything that comes out of the container (to deal with claims afterwards etc...), but that video etc. are confidential... (i m not sure abt that)


    ...
    The AC was on leave after eid, so he signed the papers on 27th July (next Monday)... and the car get gate pass on 28th July...

    Normally cars enjoy 4 working days at karachi port...

    1. 1st Day is reaching of ship and unloading of container from ship, agents float the duty on first day or a day before that on the basis of BL...
    2. 2nd Day is De-Stuffing Day, all the cars are taken out of container...
    3. 3rd Day is Inspection day... (if they found any extra parts inside the car e.g. bonnet, fenders, tyres etc... separate duty will be applied on those parts as well..)
    4. 4th Day is Exit day after getting Gate Pass and papers from the officials...

    Many Congrats Dr Sahab mashaAllah the car is lush pash
    Allah pak barkat day is may

    and as u know im a proud passo owner too im using Zic A+ with a change interval of 7000KM and always change the oil and air filter along with the oil change
    my car was 25500km on odo when bought and now its 50,000km havent faced any problem so far alhamdulillah
    and always use Hi-octane if its affordable other wise use a mix of both fuels like 1000 ka hi-octane baqi normal

    as muraadi said get the metal brackets ASAP for the side mirrors

    mashaAllah ur car is neat and genuine thumbs up for the car and for you too (Y)
