    Just like what bro ixeo replied.

    Even if its still there, u will feel uneasy towards the rest of the TT session and kept on looking over to make sure yr ride is there.

    I think TT is still manageable. It's those car shows that your car gets a heckuva lot more attention

    I still remember a vid on YT, very old video. Its in Japan where race drivers go against each other in 3 Type-R in the same generation...the Accord, Civic, and Integra. I can only recalled it was Civic EK generation.
    That Accord is as fast as the other 2.

    Which led me to think having a civic or integra as yr fun car might not turn out to be that fun.

    What car i can suggest?
    I dunno, i only hav experience with sane, everyday, normal people car.

    These days, sane, everyday, normal people car is quite insane.

    Case study: Volvo S60 T8 Twin Engine, 0-100km/h in 4.4s
    Comparison: Audi R8 V8 4.2L 0-100km/h in 4.6s

    In other words, the Volvo, with wife and baby in tow, will smoke you in your fancy Audi R8 sports car.

    AND, the Volvo will handle better in the hands of an average joe driver, due to AWD, it'll run wide in corners and won't risk spinning out or oversteering (where average joe's can't recover).

    Those are cheap affordable cars.
    People who own Volvo S60 drives it everyday...and they are sane..and they are normal..not datuk, not royalty... eat roti canai also..

    If 7+ sec to 100 then most likely it's 210hp on crank, not on wheels. 210whp with manual gearbox should be in low 6sec I think.

    Wahlau.. I am so offended you think the Civic and Integra are not fun cars even though I don't own either. And unless you're driving these cars on the track everyday like those crazy Japanese fellas it's going to be plenty of good fun on the road. Only thing bad is the way the security needs to be double triple quadruple reinforced.

    Oh how technology for newer cars has improved. Even the way the DSG gearboxes work although unreliable they are pretty impressive gearboxes. Anyway those two cars are sane people cars but they aren't for 'normal' people. These fellas need to be in a pretty reasonably high end bracket to afford either the Volvo or Audi. Not necessarily rich but definitely better than your average joe. Average joes drive Vios or Altis' at best.

    It all comes down to each own expectations and ambitions. Some people are happy enough with what they have achieved thru their own hard work, and some people who are always wanting more.

    When you driving Axia, Bezza or Saga all your life, of course if get to own Vios you would think you "made it in life".

    Well one should be proud of what they have achieved from their struggles and be happy with it but one should not be arrogant.

    Got few kinds of Vios owners:

    1.) Practical and well behave road users
    2.) Young and dangerous + race everything on the road
    3.) Old and dangerous + road rage
    4.) Made it in life kind and appreciate the heck of of Vios which brings goodness to him/her
    5.) Upgraded from trustworthy Toyota SEG
