    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.

    Thank you so much bro for the nice words!
    Coming towards your questions, yes it is indeed very economical. The worst mileage it gives is 15 km/l after a lot of full throttle driving, best went up to 24.5 km/l on Motorway at 110 km/h and Cruise Control on. Coming towards its response, yes it is pretty quick specially when you push the PWR button it gets a "kick" of power. Even on normal mode when you floor the pedal, the acceleration is pretty much impressive.

    Pics taken from somewhere else, not my car.
    However it is the same thing, looking beautiful with tints.
    From where in Islamabad can I get the best quality tints? I want the rear screen tinted from inside without harming the defogger, any idea about the ideal place for such a tint job?

    Tints never damage the defogger, those r just myths about tints ruining the defogger, i get all my car tinted and never had a problem with defogger. but dont get the Rs600 cheap korean tints, they get scratched within a month and look terrible, there is a good german paper which has a dark blue shade, (Had it pre installed in my Jdm Alto, also available locally) You can get the whole car done for about 5k, but if u want something really good and wanna spend 10k-20k go for 3m
    In my opinion the 5000 works best and the shade is exactly the same as in the picture above, it is scratch resistant

    I can pay a good amount if I get the quality, how's 3M?
    and any reviews about Sun Gard tints? that's the way it's spelled.
