    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

    3) Activating GPS Navigation and a sample Video during navigation.

    4) Steelmate two way Alarm System

    5) Console Armrest

    6) HIDs

    7) New RIMs and Tires

    8) New Seat Covers and Arm-rest console
    ================================================== =====
    Average:

    With very Hard acceleration: 11.5 Km/L
    With normal acceleration (different for different people): 13.0 km/L
    With extremely soft pedal: 17.0 Km/L (Easily reachable with in city)

    Some Very useful discussions

    1) How to read auction sheet and extract information like original odometer reading etc for JDM rides


    2) Which one is the best suitable tire size for Vitz? (Page 14, 15 and 16)


    3A) CVT Oil Change procedure, requirements and necessity
    3B) The Genuine components Toyota recommends to change at every gear oil change



    4A) Some discussion on CAT removal (fears, theories, practices)
    4B) How to remove first CAT
    4C) How to remove second CAT


    5) How to change the cabin filter/Air condition filter?


    6) How to register an imported vehicle in Islamabad? (Summary of complete procedure)


    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:
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...50#post4398570 <- Page 50 - Post #992

    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]

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

    Accidents

    1) Hitting a shahzore. It was my mistake Received some scratches on bumper
    and a little dent in body.


    2) Hitting a bike. He was coming wrong way and I was over speed too. Sadly, I lost my windscreen and fog light. Front bumper, right headlight and A/C pipes were damaged.
    Total Bill: 42650 Rs. Click here for Details

    You will laugh when you finally find them :p These are located on the beams that support the windscreen from inside / right & left side of dash.

    ....or may be you got ripped off by getting a B package, duly modified / upgraded by the dealer.

    Bohat jazakAllah sir. Whenever seniors appreciate I feel so honored that I cannot express my excitement in words. These words of appreciation are for everybody indulged in discussions in this thread.

    My colleague just bought a 2009 1.0 silver vitz from RYK. The dealer sold him the car a an F pkg. The car looked like an F package from the outside...Wheel cups, retractable side mirrors etc. But from the inside, it had no side speakers on dash beams, no restraining board on passenger seat, no vanity mirror on driver side sun shade. He was ripped off...

    The price difference between F and B pkg is Yen 100,000. (Rs. 114k)

    As per my knowledge pillar tweeters came in u package in 2006 pre face lift shape like yours , the ones with climate control a/c. No tweeters in f package in pre facelift , but were made standard in f package in face lift models. Your car is f package I suppose so it will not have pillar speakers.

    Both CATs are present in the front side of the vehical.

    The removal of 1st CAT is very easy, just need to remove the manifold and get the CAT out.
    The removal of 2nd cat takes a bit longer, first you need to get the exhaust piper out, from just after the manifold till the silencer, there are two dholkies in that pipe, the dholki near to the front side has CAT, in order to get the CAT out you need to cut that dholki and get the CAT out after that you need to take it to welding guy who welds the dholki and bring it back to original position.
    If you read this with all the pics which i have attached, you will understand better.
    Hope i have explained well.
