    Default My New Ride Vitz 2010 FL II

    This thread is about a story, its not a simple thread to post pictures, If you have patience than feel free to read else just skip to the pictures, Links to major picture sections are at the end of this post so scroll down and browse away

    So this is how the story starts, We were looking for a second car for the house and almost got the brand new Suzuki Swift DLX (went to showroom to GET IT but it was not available in color of my choice thus made to wait and think more) although my wife wanted to get a JDM (Passo/Vitz). My problem with JDM car was tempered auction sheets, repaired cars and no history of the cars.

    To show my wife what i meant i decided to take her to Khalid Bin Waleed road, meanwhile i contacted few of my friends including Shahzaib (Sharabi) to inquire about possibilities of different cars, Sharabi had two Vitz on route to Pakistan and i liked one of them and after mutual discussion with family decided to go for it (never did told Sharabi about this, revealing this for the first time).

    One of my friend had told me about his close family relatives running a showroom at Khalid Bin Waleed road earlier and had offered to go along with me to visit him (Thanks Shahzad Noor Muhammad, he is not a member here but runs a travel agency Progressive Travels, If someone wants to get good packages let me know). His cousin Arfeen showed me couple of cars which were okay previously (this is around a month or so back). I called him up and ask if he has some fresh stock coming and he told me about a Pencil Gray Vitz 5 grade car coming to Pakistan in few days.

    Keeping all the fake auction sheets in mind i didn't believe that anyone would get a grade 5 car here, so i took the required information from him and got the auction sheet checked myself (Omer Saleem thanks for giving me your user name to login to the website) as well as through Shahzaib (Sharabi) [Thanks man]. The car was genuine Grade 5 and low mileage (37000 something on odo).

    After a long debate over price (which i won't disclose here lets just say i got it above market price which i think is okay considering the car) i paid the token money for the car and the wait starts.

    To be honest i was looking around for 1.3 myself but was unable to find a clean car, if you are looking for a clean 1.0 ride than the guy i got my car from have two very clean cars, Pearl White F package 4 grade and Red Wine FL II 4.5 grade. If you are able to find a clean 1.3 than go for 2SZ as it is FWD (2WD) while 2NZ comes in 4WD and thus consumes more fuel.

    The essential changes as per my limited knowledge for a JDM are

    - Check oil / Change oil
    - Check / Change oil filter
    - Check throttle body
    - Check air filter / Change air filter
    - Check fuel filter
    - Check cabin filter
    - Check brake fluid / Change brake fluid
    - Check CVT / ATF and change if required (this i still need to do)
    - Check plugs and change if required (Courtesy of @jz i got my plugs today and will get them replaced ASAP)
    @ahmad_yar bro i have three different micro fiber cloths, one is with two sides (one for wet and one for dry) Aamir did asked me if i wanted more depth or i wanted more shine i opted for more shine and thus getting the NX 2.0 he suggested the other Ultimate something at first.

    Tyres were for 9250 each and rims cost me 15k but whole package i paid 45k, rims have scratches here and there but i am fine with them as in my opinion they are steal at that price.

    Congrats for such a Clean Ride MashAllah !! Your Story reminded me of Mine just 2 Months Back when i Literally went to almost every Showroom Exist in Khalid Bin Waleed Ended Up Getting an IST . If you dont mind Plz Share from where did you do the Injector Cleaning.About the Millage I think Its Pretty Much Premature You need to Empty and Refill a couple of Tanks and DOnt Forget for few Fill ups Try to keep Hioctain and Normal petrol 50/50 apparently your Avg looks Awful. My IST 1.3l is Giving me 12.5 100% AC . My 2004 Vitz Used to Drop Its First Bar at 60 to 65 and Second at 125 to 130 . What Plugs are you Using ? Try a Different Pump As well . After Trying so Many Pumps i ended up Trusting Only 2 or 3 Pumps in my near abouts.

    Dont worry about that, For such a car you'll always have to pay a little higher then the market, Other wise you'll have to end up buying tampered cars.

    Other than that people who claim "mei apko itne mei dilwadeta, I always want itne wali gari because thoose people just vanish when it comes to yar gari dilwado"

    I remember a imported/clearing agent used to come to me mje batana kabi gari chaiye ho il get you the best port delivery bla bla, When it came to me buying a car, he had the worst cars, ek aat peice hee to hai banwaleina, aaj kal to rate high hain bla bla.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    I am slightly puzzled with the mileage i am getting or i think i ended up getting a fill from a con pump ... got 9km/l with AC constant on and yeah i admit with heavy foot ... i guess will try couple of pumps to clear out things, oil changed, oil filter changed, air filter changed.

    First fill up Total Gizri: 1000 rs Hi Octane, 3000 rs Super = 37.91 lit
    Second fill up Shell Sunset Bulevard: 1900 rs Super = 18.8 lit
    Total mileage between both fillups = 169km

    Total gizri 2nd lane last pump (When your coming wrong way) has best fuel, Other then that in defence locality PSO pumps give best mileages, Shell Sunset bulevard might have better quantity then phase 4, But is still a thug and gives less fuel.

My IST 1.3l is Giving me 12.5 100% AC . My 2004 Vitz Used to Drop Its First Bar at 60 to 65 and Second at 125 to 130 . What Plugs are you Using ? Try a Different Pump As well . After Trying so Many Pumps i ended up Trusting Only 2 or 3 Pumps in my near abouts.
    Do you have the new shape IST? i saw one at Zafcom the other day, My car is running on factory plugs Denso, Yes i am going to try couple of pumps, Normally the place where truck and rickshah drivers go is the safest bet

    I remember a imported/clearing agent used to come to me mje batana kabi gari chaiye ho il get you the best port delivery bla bla, When it came to me buying a car, he had the worst cars, ek aat peice hee to hai banwaleina, aaj kal to rate high hain bla bla.
    Yes that's what i thought too, i have already heard comments as "itnay mai tu yeh ajata" and i just smile to them and say "bhai aap lay lu" there are always choices available at the end of the day it comes down to personal opinion on what's worth the money.

    First fill up Total Gizri: 1000 rs Hi Octane, 3000 rs Super = 37.91 lit
    Second fill up Shell Sunset Bulevard: 1900 rs Super = 18.8 lit
    Total mileage between both fillups = 169km
