    Are bodykits and suspension kits easily available here for this car inorder to make it less of a hair-dresser's car?

    test drove this car yesterday.....overall nice ride but a bit girly......no body kit. Rim only 16 and design very standard. Doesnt have the presence like the GTI...

    the price is a shame. 156K for a 1.4 litre car....

    Powerwise it is adequate not really powerful... Dont expect to out drag.. B16A and 20V BT
    in the traffic lights. 0-100km 8 sec top speed 215km/h

    Basically for rich soccer mom who like a bit of poke in their ride......

    CC is not represent price of the car... its 1.4 + Twincharged + DGS = 160PS...

    how about RX8 1.3 with RM230k?

    I am really liking the idea of maximizing the capability of a smaller engine but with force induction.
    With help from SC/low boost turbo at the lower rev range and bigger turbine at the higher rev range,
    This helps to compensate for the lack of punch given the 1.4 engine.
    Judging from the performance figures, the output of the engine is equivalent to a 2 litre NA engine
    Which is good comparing to the the roadtax price :P

    I just test drive it today... simply lovely. Was hoping the the trim level could be matching the money that we are paying. In terms of performance, NVH, comfort, quality built.... german engineering says it all.

    Need to 'ikat perut' from now on.:smokin:
    its a bit expensive but its worth to spend on.
    in terms of performance its truly bomb for 1.4l its enough for our road.
    somemore,why we need more power if we cant perform it on the road.:banghead:
    malaysia is flooded with cars even in the superhighway.

    just my 2cents:wavey:
