    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.
    .
    First of all general details about the car:
    • Model: Toyota Passo 2012
    • Color: White
    • Grades: 4.5 AA
    • Odo readings: 15000 Km approx.

    • Date of reaching Karachi port: 17th July 2015
    • Date of reaching Tarnol dry port (Islamabad) / Delivery to us: 6th August 2015

    .
    In this I will discuss...
    • The difficulties I faced while searching for car in local market
    • Car cost and importer information
    • Tips to buy imported cars
    • Custom / Duty structure of imported cars
    • How to read and verify auction sheets

    Well technically it may be correct :p when everything is replaced or repainted. There would not be any scratches

    Welcome in this thread...

    Sir it is not that easy procedure...

    For e.g. you transfer 10 lacs rupees/yen into someone's account in Japan, and he never respond back... Then what...

    Then custom clearance etc. also need attention....

    But i will go through this website and look into details, as this is new to me...

    SBT Japan and Japan Partners are also doing so, but i have heard of some complaints of people who lost their money... (I have no 1st hand experience)

    Normally we show some options of the car coming in auction in next few days....

    Then the buyer select 2-3 options...

    Then my friend bid for him...

    And then the process goes on...

    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
    whats the "method of interior cleaning" ?????
