    That’s like asking orange or apple taste better.

    The answer depends on what you’re looking for. While Neo has good handling, it doesn’t inspire as much confidence as the EK4 I drove.

    The Honda and the BMW are very different. So what you want really?

    I’d choose a manual BMW with an inline six 3L over a 1.6L Honda. Sure, the Honda is fun when VTEC KICKS IN YO!

    But it gets tired after the novelty wears off. The BMW just goes like a train.

    hmmm.. a beemer with 3liter inline 6 is going to have a killer roadtax.....that is why i am currently still leaning toward honda..

    since you are driving a ek4 (which i presume the engine has been swap to probably b16 or b18 or k20), as compare to a beemer, how would you describe the difference in handling for example going up genting etc...

    Didn’t drive the EK4 for that long, friend’s one in yellow with a B16A. It’s a front wheel drive, it corners like it’s on rails. Easy to drive, when it under steers just brake and it comes back. Rear wheel drive cornering sensation is different, turns much more easily. I need to go for driving lessons if I want to push a rear wheel drive safely. I’m not a pro driver, I’m just a rushing to poop kinda driver when I’m driving fast.

    BMW Malaysia just did one last month.. alas fully booked.

    Let the games begin! Boring la, we need some drama here.

    Myvi better actually, because spare parts cheaper and all over can get.
