    do you have plans to change its front headlights with oem led headlights? I think it's a much needed upgrade for your car as it will make your car look more sexy.

    Thank you so much ... Yes ive shared a link on page 1 of this thread which shows how the Hybrid dual clutch technology works ... Japan s official mileage figures for the base hybrid model are 27.6kmpl which is the highest in its category ... In real world here with sensible driving habits i m pretty confident ill be able to get at least 20kmpl inshAllah ... And yes, due to higher compression ratio 10%ethanol fuel is ideally recommended but here ill be sticking to our best available option (hi octane ) ....

    Sorry for going off the topic but I wanted to know that did you have to pay any customs on the items when ordered through ebay. Secondly were the items delivered at your doorstep or you had to collect them from customs/post office???

    O yess i do... infact already got a quote the day i bought the car .. at the moment they re priced at 90k a pair ... so, the sensible thing to do was to wait for a few months and get them even cheaper ... also come next year, as it launches in North America and Europe, im sure many after market LED headlights will also become available at decent rate, so just waiting at the moment as my budget is already stretched and the only money ill be spending after its registration/insurance is good wheels&tyres and genuine leather seats ... apart from that few accessories that ive ordered online ...

    It all depends on 3 things ... price, package weight and package size .... ive ordered about 17 items and only a couple have relatively big packing ... the smaller packages arrive dirctly at home with no duty .. but if the item is priced more than 100 dollars or its weight and dimensions exceed their parameters then it is held at the post office and you have to get it from there ... When i got accessories for my 9th gen civic last year, everything got home directly apart from Mugen window visors as its packing was very long and i had to pay 4500 PKR in duty ...

    Thanks for a detailed reply... Does the nearest post office hold the item or any designated post offices and where do you have to pay the customs?

    This is how Reactive Force Pedal Works

    R e a c t i v e F o r c e P e d a l
    Assists during driving by responding to the force of your foot on the accelerator pedal.
    H o w I t W o r k s
    C h a n g i n g S e t t i n g s
    Adjust the pedal force level.
    You can also change these settings using the
    multi-information display.
    1. Press SETTINGS. Use the
    interface dial to make and
    enter selections.
    2. Select Vehicle Settings.
    3. Select Reactive Force Pedal.
    4. Select one of the options.
    Low: Less pedal feedback
    and natural acceleration
    feeling.
    High: More pedal feedback.
    5. Press BACK to exit the menu.
    • When you press the accelerator pedal, the system can provide slight
    resistance to prevent you from applying excessive throttle to the accelerator.
    Usually, the feedback is unnoticeable while driving.
    • As a result, this can yield better fuel efficiency and provide traction control
    while driving on slippery roads.
    • The system also can provide slight resistance through the accelerator during
    operation of Forward Collision Warning or the Collision
    Mitigation Braking System.
    • Reactive force pedal is off in Sport mode.

    its vezel time alhamdolillah -1513730

    Don't get me wrong bro. I just want to keep others and you informed which I found out. I checked the shipping charges of vezel from trade car view and they are about 1600$. Here's the link http://www.tradecarview.com/used_car...ezel/15623233/

    Yup and add sales and recycle taxes , so the figure comes around to be 250k plus ... The only difference is you re finding out on websites and ive already imported one and gone through the process .. cant understand why you are so inclined on proving that im misguiding people .. i told you earlier bro i have neither intent nor reason to do such a thing ... No one can get away with these taxes over there, if anyone says so, he ll be misguiding you ...

    Maybe you are right about the sales tax and recycle. Coz I have never imported a vezel.
    My intention was never there to say that you are misguiding other people and I am sorry for that. In fact you are helping other wheelers by providing information about this car.
