    Default My new ride Vitz 2006, fresh import

    Asalam-o-Alikum warahmatullah,

    I was planning to upgrate my Cultus Vxli 2008 for last three months. There was a big tie between Toyota vitz and Suzuki Swift. Both rides are awesome, but I had to pick one. So, in the end I picked Toyota Vitz. The main reason to pick it was the lack of auto transmission in Suzuki Swift.

    Second tie was in between 1.3L and 1.0L versions. Though 1.0 is the best if one wants to save fuel and taxes but I required power too. So I opted for 1.3 version.

    I will use this thread to keep you all updated about the ride inshAllah.

    ================================================== =====
    Updates:

    1) Pictures of Engine bay

    2) Fog lights

    7) Toyota Vitz JDM Packages and details.


    8) Iridium vs copper plugs.


    9) Why High octane for 1kr-fe engine? Is it necessary? Does it give more mileage\power? Click the link below:

    10) Driving to Naran.


    ================================================== ====

    Major car part failures

    1) Weired noises in the engine due to water pump bearings
    1B) The water pump was replace. [price]

    Thanks Bro,
    I found the Mileage in the export certificate document,

    @ syed-shoaib

    Please verify the mileage from export document,
    I am confused, the auction sheets shows 66,500 kms and export document shows 96,600 kms.

    Brother, I think the mileage in the export certificate is the more genuine one. This is because a car can be driven after auction. There can be multiple auctions of a single ride. But when a car is applied for an export certificate, it's registration with the government is cancelled. So, it cannot be driven more.

    The mileage on the export certificate is the right one.

    Regarding my ride's export certificate, I didnt noticed mileage on it. May be my ride is more driven too. I do not have any certificate or auction report with me now because the authorities took all the genuine papers from me during registration.

    regards,
    Is your original book has a stamp on it which says "Original file returned to owner"?
    it has been a practice that all the documents are handed back to the owner, i got all the documents back with the original book,
    Is the procedure different in Islamabad? I registered 5 vehicles recently 3 in jan 2011 and 1 in jan 2012 and last a few days ago, got the complete documents(called file) back all of them.
    The file is very important in order to sale the vehicle or report a theft.
    I would insist all members to comment.

    @Mortal.

    Bro. I have just called a contact who deals in cars. He said there is nothing to worry about because in Islamabad they pin the documents in the ride's file. If some one wants to check the papers, he can check them at Islamabad excise through a simple process.

    I hope he is right.

    AoA brother. Welcome to the forums.

    Hmmm. Interesting problem. Bro, are these stock fitted lights? I am asking as I have not seen these lights till now in any vitz. Many users get them installed afterwards.

    The reason seems to be simple. The lights are taking power from the wrong circuit. Take you ride to some good car accessories shop. The electrition over there will simply give it power through the door switch circuit. Afterwards, the lights will only glow when the door will be opened.

    If you want to do it yourself then you will have to study the ELECTRONIC WIRING DIAGRAMS of vitz. This is doable but requires time. So, its better to take it to an electrition.

    Best of luck,
    regards,

    The same practice was followed in LHR a few years back, but they have changed it. in LHR you get all the documents back.
    Nothing to worry about

    @syed-shoaib,

    In KHI we get the return file with all the docs and the registration book. I dont know about Islamabad. Why didnt you make copies of all your export and other documents. I cannot trust these Government departments.

    All export certificates after 2005 have to show the mileages and details of the Shakken tests done. It could be that your export certificate was doctored by the importers. Check again. My export certificate of my 2004 Vitz didnt have the mileages recorded but that was becuase the Shakken tests were started only after 2005

    The mileage on the export certificate is genuine and the nearest you will get with regard to the original mileage of your car

    Yes you are right. I should have made the copies. But alas! things happened so quickly that I was not able to comprehend the issue. I met an agent (The one who registered my other rides too) and he asked for all the documents. I gave him the documents. He gave me the temporary copy the same night. When I asked about the documents he said that they are now submitted to the excise people as per procedure. After one week he gave me the number plates. and original copy came my home after two months by mail.

    Thats it! The day I met him happened so quickly that he said where are the docs. I said they are with me. He said give me the docs so that I may start the registration procedure. I gave him the docs and they were gone!

    No, because the shakken test is done every two years if i'm not mistaken. SO if for e.g. the test was done in 2011 June and you got your car in January 2012 so that gap is there where the mileage would increase. If you know what I mean. Then you also take into account after the car arrives here and how often it may be driven before being sold..........
