    Mani.

    You are getting so over a stupid Cultus. It came out in 1990, you drive a 16 year old model for crying out loud. Powered by a 1.0L carbuerated engine ... wow!

    A modded cultus beats a 1300cc car ... wow, like thats a big deal. There is a Vitz running around in Karachi, purple colour main which can do the same.

    There used to be an Alto in Karachi which used to do the same thing.

    It AINT a big deal.

    If you actually prefer a newer 1.0L EFi VVTi engine over a 15+ year old 1.0L carbuerated engine ... then god help you!

    Btw ... im Thy Sir Ahsan from WCCFtech forums, pehchano

    The question isnt about preference. Its about performance
    and here in Pakistan you can mod the cultus engine better.
    Keeping the drag racing aspect and resale factor apart I will prefer a vitz but since I dont have a sports car and have a passion for racing I would prefer the cultus.

    You can change the carb on the cultus and go for 1.3 carbs and even bike carbs. You cant mess with the vitz efi. Even if you do RELATIVE gains would be much less.
    Here in Pakistan you can put vitara pistons in the cultus engine. You can have the engine bored, ported polished. Mechanics here know this engine. Bigger pistons alone would make such a huge gain that you wouldnt need anything else. The yellow cultus I was referring to has this setup

    And beating 1300cc cars isnt a big deal? wow
    dude there is only ONE cultus in lahore which beats 1300cc cars and there in only ONE alto in isl which beats 1300cc cars.

    The thing that matters is that the fastest 1.0 here in lahore is cultus in NA and santro in FI. And I have thrown an open challenge for any auto vitza owner to come and have a drag with me.
    All other bs inllucding facts & figures, and efi and latest engine sh** then doesnt matters.
    You think your ride is faster then come PROVE IT. Aur agar nahi karna to boltay raho vitz faster hai aur mein bhe bolta rahon ga kay cultus zada tez hai

    ok Mr dentist! my eyes and mind both are open but what to do with our pockets? we cant open them as much as we want , scarcity of resources is the problem thats why I mentioned all the conditions for imported cars. what would be a wise decision ? spending 5000 for bumper or 30 K or + with contingency attached to it ? would it pay back to us? why the prices are going down and down of all the imported aftermarket cars? pay attention I am not talking about models just similar to pakis one like corolla rahter rest of other names vits, platz, march shits... sorry no shits yet to come . again my mind and eyes are opened fully . I am expecting sensible answers from you. no offense peace

    Agree with you on the mod point of view the Cultus is better.

    Santro's are shitty cars though. I hate them ... 1.0L EFi cant do crap. If you wana see a good 1.0L EFi except for the Vitz' ... have a look at the Joy's engine ...

    i checked this topic quiet late and i don't know what went wrong for you, i bought my 03 vitz from alta and i am darn happy with it, infact since the day i got the car i haven't driven my 00 Oriel ... sheeesh

    1. change oil filter
    2. change oil
    3. change air filter
    4. change plugs

    my car NORMALLY gives me 450+ km on full tank with AC on, on average i am getting 13+ km/l in city traffic with AC on, am i happy? you bet your *** i am

    people complaining about spares, i don't understand one thing, why buy cars if you are afraid of expenses? and believe me if you take good care of your car than it won't result in that much expenses in the first place

    driving habbits and how you take care of your car is directly propotional to the amount of times you are screwed by maintainance and spares cost :p

    Agree 100 % with baqai

    My Vitz experience is almost same, excellent ride. I doubt any car will give 13 Km/Litre with AC on in Karachi traffic ( I mean serious real numbers here!)

    By the way, talking about spares, genuine spares of even cars like local Suzuki are expensive, I had a Margalla some time ago and changed its bumper (new jap original) for 25,000. VItz bumper is not much higher than that. My friend got his Santros two doors replaced after accident, company charged him about 40,000 for doors!, the only cheaper spares you get are local or 2nd rate. Cultus back light costs Rs 15,000!, now talk about suzuki spares being cheap!!!

    Well its a question of how well u maintain ur car. My Platz gives me 19-20 Km/Ltr with A/C on Motorway(Constant 120 Km/Hr with exception of 15 Minutes drive at full throtlle and I did get full meter(180 KM/Hr) and that too with 5 people+Boot full of luggage and 17-18 Km/ltr with AC in City.
    I think you have done a hasty decision in disposing of ur vitz for a loss.
    As for spare parts, the important thing is availabilty and let me assure you that almost each and every part is available though at a cost significantly higher than local cars like suzuki mehran but again those parts are Chinese and thats the reason for their cheapness. Besides its not every day that u have to change ur headlights or windshield or even bumpers and Shock absorbers.
    Only if u get a really bad accident,then u will need to buy them and for that Insurance is a good solution. Besides in case of accident, Vitz/Platz has a far better Security option than local cars and ur survival matters lot more than the saving on parts on local cars.
    Besides anyone having problem with their fuel economy,
    please do clean ur Air filter regularly even if u dont want to change it and Spark Plugs replacement alongwith good EFI tuning will really change scenario for u.Also consider using Fully synthetic engine oil instead of mineral one because its better heat tolerance goes a long way in engine performing longer and better besides quieter engine and better fuel economy.
    Adios.
