    Check at oliac.com/autos its year and month of manufacturing. On auction site they mention year of registration.

    Well it could be posible that in this auction report the year of reg maybe written. But what i think is that the year of manufacturing is written on the auction report everytime. Coz if we import a car which has 2011 on auction report and actually it has been manufactured in 2010 then the car would not be cleared from the customs in pakistan coz it will be 4 years old car and we are allowed to import a car upto 3 years old only

    Mate!
    Have driven it 30K since the change of tyres and packing rear shock assembles, never felt the need to intentionally over speed and than take a sharp turn any car would loose grip if you did that... After all its not a track car, I mean how many times do you 'really" need to do that.
    Even if it did and it meant a trade off, I would be happy to raise the inches and loose a bit of balance,(which I still doubt it will, unless you raised the front and rear abnormally) a few times in the life of my cars service, rather than get the car's belly to kiss every speed breaker every day.
    Drive carefully! Remember, it's not only a car that can be recalled by it's maker.

    After changing tyre size what was the impact on your fuel avg?

    not being biased but most of the time the ones messing with Prius are Hondas, both City and Civic.
    I know right hahahah..... Happened to me quiet a lot of times at first i use to take it as a challenge press the PWR mode and at 50% throttle smoke the living lights out of Cities and Corollas or Swifts but now i just say ... SIR APP JAO APP KE SPORTS CAR HAI ILL GO SLOW AND MY POCKET WILL WIN THE RACE

    I changed from a 195 to 205 but before doing that i checked reviews on line and went through a lot of Prius Owner forums and can easily say that i dont regret changing to a bigger tyre... First as my prius is not the touring version it has a soft suspension it use to hit speed bumps and now nothing of that sort. 205 is a softer tyre and with a softer suspension the car feels like a Recliner with a Coffee mug. Grip is not phenomenal but No one buys a prius to race so no problems in that department. Mpg is better than before specially on highway drives and the the 15 inch Continental has a less surface contact so the car is virtually Silent inside.

    Firstly Please give details of the car.
    Secondlt An auction sheet can only be verified till 3 months from the date of its auction. For e.g if ur car was auctioned more then 3months from today then its auction sheet cannot be verified online.

    [QUOTE=Pak_Japan;4530691]Thanks bro.
    I am planning to import a 1.5 EX for myself.
    Does EX has cruise control?

    Salaam whether its 1.5 or 1.8

    A Rule of Thumb

    Genuine Cruise only comes in G Variants

    not in EX, S or L Packages

    the only exception was S 10th Anniversary Edition is 1.5
    whihc now cant be imported bcz it ended in about 2008

    1.5 Packages are
    EX
    S Multi
    S Touring
    S 10th Anniversary
    G
    G Touring
    G Touring Leather

    and you can get a genuine 1.5 2011 near 100,000 kms Driven
    between 17.5 - 18 Lacs At Your Doorstep

    these Days Prius Price have dropped a bit in Auctions

    its a good time to buy from Auctions
    especially 1.8

    Salaam
    Umar

    You can contact me for more details

    Thanks for your comments, it would be very helpful for me.
    Yes its a good season to import a car, I.e. least duties will be charged on 2011 models, also Yen is under 1.
    I imported a vitz in 2012 aug, and at that time JPY was 1.26 against PKR.

    Its good for you that they charge duty as pr sep 2011, this means you got 12% more rebate in custom duty...
    Duty on 1.5 of 2011 model is $5,746
    And if it was 1.5 of 2012 model, then duty would be $6,760.
    So I think you accidentally saved $1,014...

    Karachiites never do that! Most of them atleast.
