    Default Bought a Vitz finally.

    Hello PW'ers. Gonna share the new car we bought last night. Its a 07/08 Pre-Facelift Toyota Vitz XP90 1.0 in Silver (ISB registered 2010). This was probably the cleanest car we could find in the price we had set a limit on.

    We were heading in to buy a 08 Daihatsu Mira but then you simply cannot compare that to this. Our concern was that all the cars we own are SUVs/Sedans except a 1992 mehran that dosnt have AC which is a major let down and considering the traffic situation in our country, you just cant do without a small hatchback.

    About the car, there isn't a single touch-up /dent or scuff on the paint of the car. The interior is mint. The car starts instantly and the engine has been kept with great care with proper lubrication. There are no squeaks from the suspension and no cabin rattling or unwanted noises ( though I intend on insulating the doors with some sound dampener). Everything on the car is working. That was a great relief.

    Still, its not perfect and there are a few thing that need to be taken care of. 1 or 2 really light scratches on the left front fender but nothing some Autoglym Super Resin Polish cant fix. After all, the car will be getting a full Detailing Treatment in the coming week. There is a small paint chip on the left side of the rear bumper and a stone chip on the front bumper. Again something not hard to fix. The left rear light seems a little dull to me so gonna take care of that. Gonna treat the front headlights with Megauirs Plast-X. The left side view mirror has some blue paint on it that was left behind by a blue car but the mirror isnt damaged in any way (claying and polish is all it needs). And finally, the driver side installed wind deflector had a crack in it so we removed it and gonna install a new one.

    Other than that, the car is sitting on 195/55R15 Bridgestones with some light weight Japaneses wheels.

    Things That Will Be Done:

    1) Auto Detailing Complete Session (using products by Autoglym/Blackfire/Meguiars/Mothers) (DONE)
    2) Change the Wheels to branded 15x7" light weights. (Still Looking)
    3) Headlight/Rear light restoration. (DONE)
    4) Vitz BodyKit Extensions ( Received thanks to @cyberjunk14 )
    5) Phillips Diamond Vision H4 (DONE)
    6) Rain-X Espert Fit windshield wipers. (DONE)
    7) Change Engine/transmission oils and do a complete service (DONE) (shell helix HX7 and toyota cvt oil)
    8) Attend to the small paint chippings on the front/rear bumpers (Done)
    9) Get a new driver side window rain guard (DONE) (replaced all four)
    10) Do a brake service, alignment and wheel balance. (Done)
    11) SQ setup (including getting rid of that good for nothing Japanese dvd player) (Initiated)
    12) Valeo Fog lights. (DONE)
    13) Engine Coolant from Toyota (Done)

    Please do say Masha'Allah. This is the first hatch we bought since the mehran that is now nearly 23 years old and we are super excited about it

    Sir, what do u think the price should have been? The transfer would have been done today by my dad. I unfortunately left for Lahore last night after driving the car home. Will ask about the transfer fee and let you know IA

    Thankyou Fahad. Yup the vitz did get a facelift at the start of 08 but this car was probably from the last batch of 07 that rolled out. Thnakyou for pointing that out. I have updated the main post. Btw this isnt a replacement, that mehran is still sticking around. The cars we buy are never sold. Thats a tradition in the family lol.

    The aim was to get a clean 07/08 vitz in the same price range that would have cost us for a 07/08 Mira (we did however pay a little more for this but I think its totally worth it). I tried quite a few cars in the 660/1000 category and this by far was the the best one out there.

    We do travel alot between Peshawar/Islamabad and occasionally to Lahore so the 660cc cars just were not up to the standards. The only car from the 660 category I liked driving was the 2011 Mira (which we test drove) but my dad wasnt very happy. He is used to driving SUV's and sedans and convincing him for a hatchback was a mission itself.

    So we moved to the 1k category. Test drove a Hanna+ but my dad didnt like the Dash (he's old school) so the Passo's were out. The new vitz cost too much. He said he would rather buy a 8th gen civic in 14lakh. He didnt find the central dash cluster on the vitz to be very pretty but I guess he is used to the one on our Nissan Xtrail so that may have been the passing slip for the vitz.

    So yeah, here it is..... I'm stuck in lahore for the next 2 weeks so gonna go and break all hell on this car when i get back home lol.

    Thankyou Maddboy. That is the plan. My brother will be tending to the paint chipping this week and hopefully when i get back home next weekend, I will do everything to make this car look like the day it rolled out of the Factory Line IA

    Mashallah, that is one clean pristine Vitz. Head turner for sure. Good detailing sessions and a checklist pulled out of that service manual will do wonders.

    Its good to see you here fouad sir. TY for the wish. Hopefully, it will look even better in a few weeks time. I've already pulled out the online owners and service manual since I dont have access to the hard copies. Looking at all the things that I should do a checkup off when I get back to her

    one of the best vitz model out there. I have a 2006 vitz and its been with us from 6+ years now. It is driven on the toughest terrain of Lahore and it never gave up. People will say that's it underpowered blah blah but they don't know the durability of this ride!!!
    MashAllah beautiful and clean ride
