    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)

    Thanx alot...

    I'll look for some metal bracket installer in rwp as it is not available in our city....

    Hi octane is also available in Rwp, will get it from there iA... But there is no knocking issue with the regular petrol....

    Which company's oil and air filter do u use....?

    Default Arrival at Tarnol Dry Port (Islamabad)

    The car was loaded on car carrier on Wednesday 29th July, it was expected to reach Saturday night or Sunday morning, but due to huge traffic block in Essa Khel mountains in Mianwali due to a container accident, the carrier was stucked there for 2 days, and later the foundation broke and it took 1 more day for the carrier to move from Mianwali...

    Eventually it reaches on Wednesday 5th August and delivered to us on Thursday 6th August at 8 AM....

    Surprisingly there were 2 Vezels on the same carrier, a white and black... @drzac

    Default Car Service

    Before going home, went to service station for complete exterior service... i did interior service by myself...

    Thanks to Allah that the car was in very neat condition so service was done along with the Turtle Wax for shine...

    Masha Allah many congratulations for the new car and in such a tidy condition!
    And Thanks A Lot for the special mention, I always feel that in case of cars I should not misguide anyone, now have many people at hand whom I saved from being screwed at the hands of dealers
    As I'm a detailing fanatic I would like to advise you some things to keep the car in top notch condition even some years down the line:

    1. Always wash with a pH neutral dedicated Car Wash and Wax Shampoo like that of Meguiar's, Nanoskin, Turtle etc, but not the F1 or other sub-standard brands, they are not clear-coat safe.

    2. Wax her once a month or if you can't manage time for that, take her to a professional detailer and get her a paint correction and sealant treatment, would last you 6 months easily, but even after that just wash her with a branded shampoo, a microfibre or merino wool wash mitt and keep microfiber towels so that swirls do not appear so soon and in a massive amout.

    3. I always drive with the windows up, the 1-2 km/l that is saved by not driving with AC and with windows down, its price is a dirty and dusty interior and you would not certainly want that.

    4. Use a dedicated windshield washer fluid and keep a good glass cleaner like 3M and some microfibre towels for its application, you will always have crystal clear glass.

    5. If the car comes in contact with overspray or road tar or any other sorts of contamination, get it removed immediately with the help of a clay bar/clay mitt and tar remover, because if the contamination stays for long, it harms your paint finish resulting in oxidation, damaged clear coat etc.

    6. Whenever the car gets washed, pay special attention to the door jams and wheel arches that they do not accumulate any water and get cleaned properly, otherwise the dirt can eat the rubber parts if it stays for long.

    7. Never ever dry dust the car, it will cause massive swirls and scratches.

    8. Never wash the engine with pressurized water, there are delicate sensors which can be damaged after which you'll have a Check Engine light and finding the fault drives one crazy.

    9. Never ever use any petrol/diesel spray on engine and/or undercarriage, it is a menace and gradually eats the rubber parts and damages the pastic ones as well, not to forget the dust attraction it causes.

    10. Always keep a microfibre towel and a Quick Detailer spray in the car, and whenever you spot bird poop on the car, remove it immediately with the help of these otherwise it tends to leave its marks behind specially if the sun is up and the body is hot because of it.

    If there is anything else you need to ask feel free
    8th Gen Mitsubishi Lancer 1.3 GLX 2006; 3rd Gen Toyota Prius 1.8 S-Touring 2010; 11th Gen Toyota Corolla 1.3 GLi AT 2014.
