    Default Carla - The Red Prius - aliusman420

    Salaam everyone.

    Presenting "Carla"

    So it's been quite a while since I bought the Prius but never got time to create a thread for it specifically, although shared its pics in several forums.
    It is a 2010 model, S-Touring Edition in Barcelona Red color, imported in end 2013 and with me since 16th January 2014.
    I bought it from one of the few reliable importers out there, that is, @Sharabhi a.k.a Shahzaib Rasheed bhai. The deal went real smooth, I saw the pics of the car on his Facebook page JDM Imports and called him up. After a bit of discussion, he sent me every possible detail he had of the vehicle even before I made any commitment to buy the car. The details were the original auction pictures, original Japan yard pictures with odometer pictures of the actual mileage, original auction sheet (which I got verified from my own person in Japan and it was as it is) and container unloading video and pictures. Some days later my friend who lives in Karachi and owns a Prius himself combined with all sorts of knowledge he has acquired about hybrids in his 2+ years of ownership, went and inspected the car and gave me the verdict that this is the car to go for. I made the token payment to Shahzaib bhai's friend here in Islamabad and after a day or two, the car got loaded on the truck and reached Islamabad in the next few days. When it arrived, I along with my mother went and took a test drive of the car and reached the decision of making the payment the same day. Some hours later we came with the pay order and took the delivery of the vehicle.
    I am well-aware of the JDMs that are being brought into Pakistan and this car is absolutely not like them, it is a class apart. When I was buying this car, many friends said me to buy a MarkX, a brand new Civic or a 2006-07 Mercedes C180 and even though they are good cars, I needed a car which looks good, drives good and is easy on my wallet, and Prius was the ultimate choice.
    Even being a 2010 model, the car feels brand new Masha Allah, the drive is highly comfortable, the road grip is far beyond the local sedans, high speed cornering is a piece of cake in this vehicle Alhamdulillah, and among all the other luxuries, it is fulfilling the one Prius is well-known for, it's fuel consumption
    I am in no way a hypermiler and many times I have to drive like a maniac while getting late for University or some friends gathering, and AC is on all the time, still the car fares far above than other cars like Civic or Altis. To be very honest, I cannot be more satisfied in another car after driving this beauty. Even though the price tag was higher than the so-called market price (of the accidental cars), the car is worth every penny I tell you.

    Okay guys who was in the red KE-70 today racing with me? I was in a hurry to reach university and wasn't racing plus my car's battery pack had also completely drained so I didn't have the full power at my disposal!

    Hahaha bro I am 101% sure that KE-70 was swapped otherwise it wouldn't have kept up and eventually overtaken Carla
    And some young boy was driving it he waved to me out of the window when he overtook me at above 150 km/h.

    The battery pack is charged by regenerative braking, and discharges when the car idles for too long, it is driven with a very heavy foot or driven in the PWR mode.
    Don't apologize it's a complex matter for many
    When the battery pack sufficiently charged, you have the entire 134 horsepower at your disposal but once it drains, you only have 98 hp.

    yes probably because that car was a proper sleeper simple alloys no exhaust and even the bumpers were removed.

    @aliusman
    The 17" wheels you got in your ride are being offered to me fnf for 60k brand new and OeM genuine Toyota. I want to put them in my GLi Auto. Just two questions:
    Are these light weight?
    Is the price justified keeping in view they are brand new and original?

    Sir as far as price is concerned I think it's justified considering they are brand new and genuine.
    I didn't get a chance till yet to lift or weigh them to give a final verdict if they're lightweight or not but they sure look good and should suit on your black GLi AT.

    Thanks Ali. If not ultra light weight, light weight they should be keeping in view fuel efficiency being the major factor for a Prius.
