    Maybe the customs in karachi is more strict then lahore coz a couple of times I paid custom duty about 1000 PKR for just a sample which came to me from China.

    But I am really confused how to get such stuff
    Mode of payment is the main problem for me ..
    I dont have a credit card and my father is a bit reluctant to use his card for online shopping and said buy whatever you want to but from karachi lol

    But the stuff is really reasonable at ebay and has many other things not available here even at Rahim Impex
    For example Side Mirror chrome garnish for new corolla is for 4500 only one side total 9k for both mirrors
    But on ebay even the best one is for 39 $ both only ..
    Really confused how to get the stuff :/

As far as maintaining the engine is concerned, there are some really good experts who know a thing or two about car computing and electronics so no issue there at all.. One thing which might become an issue initially in case of an accident God Forbid, spare body parts could be a bit hard to arrange immediately. but im sure within few months, all the major JDM spare parts markets in larger cities would be having fit parts at least.
    To be honest, these are genuine concerns for any buyer but trust me in this day and age at least, these things shouldnt hold you back from getting honda fit hybrid. I would recommend. Hope this helps. Good luck
    Sir! JAZAKALLAH for such a Greatly Detailed & Sincere Reply! I Really Appreciate that! (Y)

    Been following this thread since day one.
    Its amazing to see the excitement and preparation, like reception of a bride.
    And with drzac we all are waiting anxiously for this vezel.
    After experiencing all this fun I think just buy and drive is too boring.
    You know, somebody actually complimented me on my parking skills. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said "PARKING FINE".

    Card payments are always the most secure mode of payment.
    Dont know about other banks but I have an account in Barclay's Pakistan. Once I got two cars filled at a petrol station for exactly the same amount and payment was made in two transactions of same amount back to back, in five minutes I got a call that my card was charged twice. And no vendor should charge a card for same amount twice within a specified time. Got one payment reimbursed
    Similarly Faisal bank and standard chartered's Credit cards are good. I had a dispute online and I challenged the transaction citing goods/services not received. I got my money back with faysal bank.

    The guys at customs probably charge according to their will and mood
    My friend booked a Samsung galaxy, China copy, online. The phone was delivered and they did not charge any custom. The phone costed him I think 8K.
    Then 3/4 other guys placed the order as it was a good buy. When their phones arrived they asked them to 6000 a piece as custom duty

    Thank you so much for following the thread. completely agreed, just buy and drive is no fun for an autophile ... love your analogy about reception of a bride. jahaiz is almost ready ;P well as per my limited knowledge, ive been trying to share information regarding Vezel as much as i can starting from specs, price estimates to accessories and later maintenance InshAllah ... tracking information for my shipping is showing arrival at karachi port on 10th jan InshAllah ... so 3rd week of jan from 13-19th im expecting it in lahore .. as always anyone is free to ask about any information and ill be more than glad to share .. My friends in pindi/isb and karachi reporting seeing a couple of vezels on road but i havent seen one yet on lahore roads .. first could be this one

    Speed Radar Detector for Vezel ... My first product that was held up by customs. Reason being they couldnt figure out what it was. They thought it was to do with God Forbid terrorist activity or something ... they called me and then i explained to them its just a speed monitor through GPS had to pay 2000 PKR duty though ...

    Salam, Congrats on the purchase. As per my knowledge, instrument cluster settings dont have inter navi language option and as far as local maps after a hack is concerned, i have limited knowledge so hopefully someone else could take up this question .. btw is your car with you or yet to arrive? color, grade, costing ?? kindly share .. thanks

    That's a beauty. It's not a beauty it's art. It's not art it's Alfa Romeo.
    Update the first thread according to the detailed review, pics and total package price. I was looking for a fielder hybrid. But this. It gives me butterflies.

    Thanks a lot for the kind words. she is indeed a beauty .. Well, a detailed review coming up soon as its landing in karachi by the end of the week InshAllah and next week in lahore. there are international reviews but i haven quoted any since its worth and practicality can only be judged by owning and driving it here. price at doorstep if you import it directly with no dealer involved varies between 3.1 - 3.3 Million PKR ( depending upon the trim ) ... InshAllah detailed photoshoot in lahore next week

    Wasalam,

    Thanks a lot for we'll wishes. May God always keep u all safe.
    My question was to change the language on both instrument cluster and internavi. I would mostly appreciate if someone help me change language to English in both instrument cluster and internavi. I can pay for services.
    I didn't import it I bought it from local car show room. It's 4 grade and just 93 km. I bought it in white as its looks more suv in white rather then black. Cost me around 3.4 million but I am sure if I import it myself it cost me in between 3-3.2 max. But then dealing with govt official is, u know how difficult it is. I have applied for no and soon will be on road. The car is with me at the moment.
