    Real Evo is always better. No matter how much you spent or do on a Wira or normal Lancer, it will never be the same as a real Evo. Same like those who spend so much on their normal Civics, it'll never be the same like the real Type R.

    There are 2 types of JDM guys. The purists who strictly stick to the term Japanese Domestic Market (That means a vellfire or alphard is also JDM )and those types that think slamming and stancing or bosozoku-ing a car is JDM.

    RM37k for a B16B EG6 is fine since your car does hold value and you've already paid fully for it isn't it? I suppose you paid it all out with cash? At least no monthly installment and interest rates to worry of. But at the end, your kind of car does hold value.

    What a financial mistake would be is probably what I did with a car that is worth RM800 trade in price and I spent RM6k on it. RM6k not on any mods at all, only fixing and restoring the car back to stock condition. Before that project was completed, I was mocked and laughed upon by people regarding my decision to fix up that RM800 worth of junk car. But at the end, I'm fine and happy with the outcome from the RM6k spent on it even when the car is probably only worth RM2k trade in value now.

    All in all, I'll say that the value of something actually lies on the view of the owner. Why bother about what others think if you're happy with what you've spent and the final outcome? It is a car for your own usage and enjoyment right? Your money, your car.

    EG6 was also in one of my car list :)
