So that's your plan in the next 3 years?
Actually unsure. Don't know what car to change to.

Volvo Malaysia aftersales is horrid. I like the bangbus, i mean XC90 T8. XC60 also works.

My requirements: PHEV or EV with 400km distance minimum on full charge, 250bhp or more, cannot be smaller than the 3 series, rear wheel or AWD preferred, SUV ok, adaptive cruise, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, carplay. So far the car don't exist in Malaysia I think. (other than Volvo) Tesla Model 3 is nice.

Modern BMW twinturbo engines, nothing much to complain except for its endless oil leak issue. And ratting sound in the turbos. So far that's why i know from youtubers who owned 335i.
No issues with the B48 SO FAR. The N series are known to grenade itself, among other things.

All sifus.. let’s chill laaa... im seeking for opinions only...macam fighting only...
Anyway call off d la.. my friend’s 330e going for warranty d after owner it for 2yrs..
reason bcoz it works like handphone battery, the more u use, the lifespan will drop. My friend 2yrs current mileage is 80k km... hmm

And then, wanted to sell my car manatau the buyer’s income was not supported.. so happen the buyer brought his friend who owned a mk5 stage 2... and it makes me drooling

btw sifus, if I wanna mod my gti to stage 2, roughly how much cost hv to incur? I wanna survey and start savings.. hahhaha

Its a great engine, like all high performance engines, it has its issues. Just need more care than N.A engines. Having taking care 2 turbo cars, i can tell there more things to watch out for than my N.A Mitsubishi.

By the way, To TS, 328i F30 is a great car with lots of characteristics. VW on the other hand, has its fun factor but you will blank spot in between the two, especially when it comes to cornering.

Well but hybrid is not that new and exclusive anymore. But yes German cars also typically push boundaries of technology, hence more expensive in most aspects. Maybe someday if I'm fortunate enough to own one then I would know more.
A used Merc S class is 'affordable' and will give u enough exposure to new world of motoring.

Wah still don't dare and I don't like very big cars like that. The biggest I'm still ok with is just up to d-segment but c-segment size is the perfect one.

True oso..hihihi
thays why we can see rare sight of someone trying desperately modding a Camry by installing all non-Camry like acc.

Trying to justify their heart or trying to cover up a bad decision.

Absolutely agree! Take it from this uncle, lol.
Eh, normal public perception when seeing u getting in or out of your evo will be 'pity that uncle, had to drive his son car as maybe his son needs to borrow his people carrier to fetch friends. The sight of u driving the car so gently cemented this perception. hahahaha.
Lesson : Always boost when leaving. To signal the crowd 'this is my Evo, not my son'.

Yeah. Got very disillusioned and distracted. Didn't feel good.


It's a different kind of monster. If I'm honest I like the 335i more. Twin turbo, direct fuel injection and plennnnnnnnnty of powahhh

Yea, so much negativity these days...At i still know where to find you....hahahaha
