    yes it does, he has other cars, beyond that! i think 5 or 6, he just wants to sells it, because he saw a classic bike that catches his eyes

    Fiat Coupes - 40k+
    RX7 FC3s - 32-45k
    AE85 / 86 - RM 40k to 80k
    Celica ST202-ST205 - RM 40k-60k

    Perhaps RD2, Ford "Sampan", DA6, RX12, etc yes..

    Unless it's a scrap car or a rusty chassis with screwed up engine that cant start

    fiat coupe goes less than 30k now, thats the latest price update

    Cars for sale in Malaysia: fiat coupe - Mudah.my

    even the turbo version can be had for 28k, as per list.

    the rest, all depends on luck. if you see one, its ur luck. i do not vouch for the condition of the cars as said in many lines

    sure... go ahead and buy the <30k ones... chances of repairing the car and making it >40k is very high.. i.e. engine transplant, chassis transplant... bla bla... that excludes the cost of time... oh well, different people different thinking... especially for those who are full time doing it for the passion... ;)

    im confused, how does this relate to the 30k coupe posting?

    all my lists has been, indicative prices of how much a car can go. its up to you to spot the problems and identify if its alright to proceed. i am not responsible any choices you make. this is an indicative suggestion list, thats it

    Hahah take it easy man..just pulling your tail. Nothing to do with 30k coupe posting i am just trolling.

    What i'm implying is..for such a car and to pay so little it's bound to be a very expensive project. Not saying the car you chose is not within the 30k budget.

    But then again ah..some of the cars there exceeds 30k..we're talking market price right? low-priced cars are almost sure to inherit some problems

    yeah well

    DIY guys like izso, loves grease, engine oil and dirt. i bet he would totally wet his hands with lubricant and work on the car. thats what labour of love is!!

    im sure he would buy the cheaper car and use his own labour time, to compensate for the monetary differences, where he can go makan seafood other time, hahahah

    He would buy la..not most of us leh

    What makes you think I dont do the work myself..because most of us do it ourselves la we know how expensive it can be bro..geddit?

    In a more serious constructive note, you should consider a car based on its original state and performance..and how it depreciate over the years..the maintanence aspect of it.. almost every car you choose sure need to restore this restore that..ai meh

    Just want to correct a bit. Coupe can be 4 doors as well (like merc CLS class for instance). Just to share.:biggrin: And yes, that black one IS 4 door and NOT coupe at all.

    Dear Kevin, frankly spkg I like ur writing especially when it comes to restorations and stuffs. But this one is a bit.. i dunno. I enjoy reading with less comment (if i think no need to) but this one a bit "lari" tune.

    First, the price for those cars most of them are not under 30K by average. I am agree with Blackhowling bcs he stated the price realistically. You keep saying by luck, by chance, keep mudah-ing, but i think (my humble opinion lah) if u saying luck will get u those car for under 30, i can say i bought R34 for 30 mooons ago because i am lucky to have a rich friend selling me that kinda price. My cousin in Aussie sold his imprezza S204 to me for 50 because..i am lucky he felt the car is rubbish. See.. the luck term does not play the roll well here or almost anywhere. By taking average price would do more justice to readers.

    Second, how can u say that black integra is 2-drs coupe before checking it? Coupe, seriously? And the price for it nearly 30k before shipping. Ok, we maybe have Sabahan readers, i cant argue with that.

    Come on bro..i know u can do better than this, seriously. Please, forgive me if i'm a bit harsh this time. Very2 sorry. But I' love to read better stuff.

    Peace bro..:wavey:

    CLS is in theory the world first 4 door coupe, then came the audi a5 and a7. or even bmw x6, which is more suv anyways.

    well i saw the photos and from that angle, looked like a coupe. i apologise. but then again, i did say, da to dc, so the spectrum is wide! but isnt da6 a good choice too? hmmm. thats why i corrected in the end and putted a da6 photo instead of a dc2 to be less misleading.
