    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.

    It should have a metal body. Normally it is black. i do not have any idea what's inside. But on outside it's a metallic jar.

    Best of luck,
    Vitz oil filter is paper type. You'll be surprised that it is thrice as expensive as conventional metallic ones.

    Buddy, I have another suggestion for you.

    I did the following jobs on my vitz after its fuel efficiency dropped and rough vibrations on idle appeared:
    Cleaned Throttle Body
    Inspected Fuel Filter (located in fuel tank): This job proved to be needless as the filter was found clean.
    Cleaned MAP filter (located behind throttle body)

    After these activities, the rough idle problem got solve. However, no improvement in fuel average was observed.

    Then after 15 days, I reset my ECU settings by disconnecting battery +ive terminal for 1 hour, and then reconnecting. Viola!! It worked wonders... All of a sudden I started to get additional 3 kmpl than previous.

    For these modern cars, it is important to give ECU a refresh after cleaning jobs to witness improvement.

    Looks pretty roughed up but Shoaib bhai, be happy that it is only a minor 'raggar'. Light seems to be saved (which is a great thing as new light costs ~ 8k rs)

    AoA brothers. bohat bohat JazakAllah. Yes Allah ka bohat bohat shukar hay zyada nuksan nahi hoa. Allhumdulilah.

    The dent on fender piece seems unrecoverable without repainting the whole piece. May be some hammer work can straighten it a bit without repaint. I think the bumper too will have to get repainted. Will check some denter, tub hi pata lagay ga.

    Yes bro. Allhumdulilah nuksan kuch nahi hoa. Bro there is dent in the fender piece. May be pictures main clear na ho. Zara gor karain to nazar a raha hay picture main. That dent might require a repaint of this whole piece. May be not. I have no idea. Will soon visit some body shop inshAllah.

    Dear Bro.
    AOA,
    The average depends upon the driving style in the last 8 months i was getting avg around 11(i usually drive as i am playing need for speed specially when starting from signal .... bad habit i know ), my father drove my car he got around 13.5, then i changed my style and i am getting around 13.2. i also depends upon the quality of fuel, when i fill up with Hi Octane, i get around 14, so if you need to get better avg, you should change your filling station as well as your driving style.
