People don't actually have to answer if it's their own earned money or their father's. That's not the issue. The issue is that one should learn to respect money, be it father's or not. My father got me my first car as which was a Alto and when he had nothing short of Mercs and Beamers. I wasn't allowed to drive any of his premium cars as he wanted me to learn to respect the cars and see how I take care of the alto, how mechanically sound it is, how clean it is. Only then can I be worthy of being called a driver as per him. Don't think I have anything against an Alto, it served me well in college days when all I needed was 4 wheels and an engine.
Having said that, fathers money or not. Respect the money as it doesn't grow on trees.
I chose the 1.8 variant after booking the 1.5 because of the fuel issue. Otherwise would have gone for the 1.5 even with the price difference. It is a better car but unfortunately not for Pakistan at the moment. 1.5 would have had a much better resale but no anymore. As for me, I don't think about the resale as much because I'm not going to be getting another car within the next 5-6 years as I want to use the Civic X for a long time. Id like to maintain it for myself and for the lucky person who will take it off my hands in the future.
One doesn't have to sell their old car(s) to get a newer model all the time provided their current model is in a sound condition as my 8th gen is. My 8th gen is close to 10 years old but doesn't look it or feel from any angle. Nevertheless, I need to give my 10 year old rest as its been on the run every since I bought it aur jitna bhagao, utna kharchaa maangti hai maintenance main.
At the end, 1.5 is still a better car, maintenance wouldn't have been an issue if it wasn't Pakistan but unfortunately our mechanics aren't equipped to deal with such cars as yet and neither are our roads in any condition for them to be issue free and last but not the least is the octane issue, all of them are turn offs.
