    Okay I might get ignored or maybe get schooled by some of the shifus here about buying a Honda but here I go. Yes I bought a Honda eg6 with a b16b in it for quite the price.. wait for it, 37k! The mods arent much, spoon ecu,spoon intake,race clutch,pistons and head all stock,offset headers and that’s pretty much it I guess. Before y’all start just hear me out. I needed a screaming NA engine yes,not to drive like a ricer but really get the feel of vtec and the claims of the b16b being the most powerful 1.6 engine during the days before Nissan took over the tittle, thus explains why.. about the price, sometimes I really question myself with life decisions..

    If u can afford it, why not.
    There will always be a better car out there for 37k but its not yours.

    1. Does it make you smile when you floor it?
    2. Do you turn back and look at it after you walk away from the car, and say to yourself, hot damn that's one fine car.
    3. Is the car in tip top shape? No problems and no fixing?

    If you answer YES to all 3 questions, then NO, it is worth it.

    That's still a lot cheaper than a new Myvi and helluva lot more street cred.

    Agree with the sifus, if you are enjoying your car, don't think so much of the price, since already bought......

    I'm seriously questioning why you're doubting your purchase after you already bought it.

    It's your car dude. You like it then keep it and enjoy it. No amount of comments or statements from us will make you sell the car right here and right now and if we all said the Myvi is a better car would you trade in the EG for it? If you would - then I'd say you're a dumbass. :biggrin:

    The EG was and still is quite a legendary status Honda especially the 2 door B-series engine one. Fix and tidy it up and you'd have an awesome car that may not necessarily win races - but the handling and feel of the car will leave you smiling for months. Unless your goal in life is to beat everyone you see at every traffic light drag, then you need a K-series engine upgrade.

    Spend some money upgrading security for the car though, it's still one of the top 5 most stolen cars in Malaysia.....

    Yes true bro.. I see the current mods on in are good enough for me cause I not race kaki.. just might want to bring it to 200whp if for the fun of it.. plus will have to check around for security stuff la and need to find retractable steering wheel if that’ll help.. anyone you can recommend?

    Look up Petes Audio in Facebook and ask him how to make your car more secure. Can tell him Chris Wira guy recommended you.

    Don't park at shady areas, no matter what security you put also will gone. My friend had EK4 with EK9 Recaro. Parked outside, overnight no more seats left.
