    The E30 and E46 etc have more people, but the AE86 ones are more hardcore.

    I'm in love with the new Zupra in yellow.

    Hmm don't like the new Supra, looks odd especially the front half.

    Madma you are really mad, forgot to lock doors. If TS really got his hands on a Ori EG6, and he loves it to the bit, then its not financial mistake, as you are not supposed to view it as an investment, the car is part of you. At least that's how i look at my cars, all 3 of them represent a part of me. My friends and family can really see the cars i owned tell a part of me.

    Thanks.

    E30-E46 also has lots of hardcore fans, alot of them are very low profile. I talked to one dude came in with 1UZ V8 swapped E36, met with my 1JZ swapped E46, honestly i thought we are going to drag it out and see whose faster hahaha.

    But being over 30s and responsible dude, we just went for a cup of starbucks and call off the rivalry.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    I am guessing he probably have not endorsed the engine and still paying original roadtax cost ?

    pink myvi is win.... jangan persoal

    i dont see it as a financial mistake if he truly enjoys it either.. however, considering the extreme risk of theft, and used as a daily, its an extremely risky financial decision that can turn into a financial mistake, especially if its someone who doesnt have much finances to easily replace the car with something else. coz insurance coverage is also quite shit with these cars.

    but if the question is about whether or not it was worth it paying that specific amount for that specific car, like i said, depends on my point 1 in previous post.for TS's reference, can see my previous car specs and pix here (which i sold for RM29k): http://tinyurl.com/jualbanshee

    my EG hatch was never a financial mistake. i thoroughly enjoyed that car. but i sold it to avoid it being one and also for the peace of mind as well.

    and if u ask me would i buy another one as a 2nd car and if no risk etc....its a yes and no.

    yes coz they are amazing cars. so much fun and easy to get parts (albeit dwindling already)

    no coz parts are expensive as fuck compared to other brands
    no coz with the way honda guys are these days... id be embarassed to be labelled as "budak honda"...ive even left most of the fb groups coz i just menyampah already.

    I think more like being a consent adult, we are way pass the age of raging on the road eventhough we got faster cars now. Endorsed or not his ride, not sure.

    Thanks,

    Budak Honda ? Fan boys you meant ? Lots of Honda drivers i knew back then are jerks and douchebags in college, worshipped the Type Rs like king of street cars. Their mentality very ah beng and no class. But .... these kinds of jerks and douchebags get all the chicks and Lancer boy like me cry in corner :bawling:

    Thanks,

    That 'thing' abt Honda fanboys/owners still exist till today. For example, most Civic will be driven as if they are Type R. Then, only in Malaysia we have the City Type R.

    Where's that damn dislike button!!

    But I understand your POV regarding the safety of the car. I once had a friend buy an original EG6 in stock form and complained about how worried he was it would be stolen. I told him about the hood lock, fuel cut and immobilizer (all aftermarket) and he went to get it installed at a shop I recommended. Good thing he did because the next day some dumbfuck actually broke into his car and drove off. But he only got one block before dying off in the middle of the road because of all the extra security he added on the day before. The thief couldn't open the hood to mess with the alarm and fuel cut so end up the car was just left there a block away in the middle of the road. Lucky for my friend.

    And you'd have to pay me to steal a pink myvi with all it's doors open and keys in the ignition. Pay me a lot of money.

    Not to insult any modern Honda owners, but they must understand the model they are driving is econobox, especially City. Hate to see dumbasses tailgating from behind in those econobox.

    Thanks,

    not really wat i meant....they tend to cry like babies whenever they see someone say "fuck honda" or "honda sux" or anything of that sort...complete with screenshot and posting in group saying lets find this feller.. lets viral this feller bla bla bla bla bla...and the comments on these postings oso same shit....too bloody emo these days.

    that and also thinking hondas are the most powerful car in the world.. the most top car in the world......thinking the fact that they drive a honda it means they super atas kinda ppl...

    menyampah wei....these are the kinda things that made me embarassed to be called "budak honda".....

    Oh...the so famous 'tak boleh kalah' attitude. I had one colleague with this attitude last time...so bad that we had a nickname for him called 'NJ' short for 'Nak Jugak'.

    What's the model he is driving ? Curious which Honda can give him to Nak Jugak behaviour.

    Thanks,

    Not sure what car he own...with that attitude u can expect lesser closed friend.

    I can confirmed he is a hardcore Proton basher and worship the Myvi but last time i heard he bought a Saga FLX.

    This guy has no chill, there's no need to bash any car brands or type of cars, nor worship any of car brands. But somehow, you can expect this sort of attitude at the car cult.

    Thanks,
    Ken
