    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.

    Great!

    Well I have no idea It costed me around 22000 for 1.3 vitz in Islamabad and it was a late registration too. You will know the cost once you go to excise office.

    I quoted you under 11.30 LoL and basically I had in mind the face lift model standing here in Islamabad. That model is I think 2008 and 2009. Those vitz are being sold around 11 now a days. 2006 fresh import should go around 9:30 lacs. You have got it in good price ma sha ALlah.

    Wish you best of luck, and stay connected.

    Waiting for pics of beauty

    I recently upgraded my vitz 2007 1.0 to 1.3 2008. Found a huge difference in power, sound and specially two important factors 1 no knocking and 2 very smooth idling. Fuel wise it's almost the same if not better. I wanted to ask u since u r using liqui moli engine oil , I'm using Toyota 10/30 imported tin pack , , could u share your experience and should I switch over to liqui moli 10/40 , is it worth it. I have also changed the transmission cvt oil , plugs , all filters and injector cleaner also used liqui moli in the fuel tank which made a lot of difference

    AoA brother, Nice to hear that you have upgraded your vitz and enjoying the power of 1.3 version.

    Bro I havnt used toyota oil so I cannot compare. I am using LiquiMoli for long now. I think it works very well. I cannot give you a comparison as I havnt used Toyota one.

    I switched last year to liquiMoly 15-40 from 10-40 synthetic. I think that was a mistake as the drive is not as good as before.

    I think LiquiMoly will rock in your vitz. Try getting some more suggestions.

    Walikum asalam bro!
    It;s nice to hear you are enjoying ur ride. 7 km/liter is worrying. Are you sure you have checked it properly?

    There is some thing very wrong. Have you checked CVTi fluid?

    I haven't used Total Oil 3000 yet. So I have no idea regarding it's quality.

    I'll go to Toyota Workshop and get my vehicle fully check by them.. I hope this would resolve the issue.
    What is CVTi fluid?? U mean transmission Oil?
    My Automatic transmission has P, R, N, D-S & B. Is it VVTi engine?
    Moreover, when is S & B gear should be used?

    OK best of luck. I hope your problem will be resolved soon in sha Allah.

    Yes it is gear oil. You should get it checked and change it completely. Always use Genuine toyota CVTi fluid.

    "B" is for "breaking". You can use this gear while driving down the hill. It uses clutch plates to keep car in slow and in control. You can say it is a kind of auto-breaks or in simple words the car remains in lower gears.

    "S" is for "Super". Putting car in "super" stops gear shifting. It increases pick. So if you want to keep car in the gear in which it is present, just put it in "super" it will stop shifting. You can use this to give full throttle like manual cars. For example start the car and push it into "Super" gear. Now give a quick pick to the car. When accelerated to a certain speed just shift car back to "D", it will change the gear to upper level. Again shift it back to "super", continue to accelerate and shift back to "Drive" and the car will move to next gear. So like this you can also use it for racing "ragra" kind of pick It will act like a kind of a manual shifting.

    best of luck,

    After new tires and RIMs installation.

    1) Handling and road grip have improved a lot.
    2) Ground clearance has become awesome.
    3) Road noise has increased.
    4) Suspension feels harder now
    5) Comfort level has decreased due to above two points
    6) Looks have been improved
    7) Braking seems almost same as before
    8) There are no symptoms of tires touching the body despite of being 195s.

    Mileage calculations will take time.

    AoA bro, Ja zak Allah for liking the effort

    As i discussed with you a year ago that I am thinking about getting Altis RIMs. I was not able to get them as they were five bolts version. But one the the pakwheelers bro told us that a four bolt version is also available in market So I got it at last.

    I hope you and your family are fine. Kush rahain.
    regards,
