    Wah so expensive ya. 70-80k I'd buy Evo 7.

    Wah so many mistakes and regrets! You're OCD and know cars very well but some how had made that many mistakes, quite surprising.

    Oh by "right" I mean suites my requirements. I don't need it to be in great shape cuz I know price won't be 'right' in that sense. I can get the shape to look right but I can't get driving feel, space, etc to be 'right' unless it comes with it.

    Uh dude... speed? I'm driving a saga FLX and a Myvi at the moment. Where got lust for speed la?

    I can get access to a diesel E60. That's better than the X3 in my opinion. No no no no SUV

    Definitely no to VW. Not for poor people like me.

    Uh... that's how you become well versed with a car. You OCD over it and make mistakes with it. Anyway #1 was the biggest mistake and back then that car was nothing more than a pipe dream purchase. Heck even now it's a pipe dream. And everyone starts somewhere in terms of knowledge. I unfortunately just learnt things through the hard way.

    What's with you and SUVs / Vans la?

    Plenty of choices if the market, you also can't go wrong with a Honda Civic FD2 2.0 i-VTEC. Just that it isn't manual, other things all checked nicely. Handling is easily one of the best compact sedan and plenty after market support. I have friends who still driving the FD2 or FD1 for close to 13 years without fail. For myself i have been driving my LGT for close to 11 years, i should say in terms of reliability, its the worse Japanese car i have ever owned, but i love the car's look, driving feel. Apart from that because it also looks like an EVO.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    FD2... I wouldn't mind. But none within my price range.

    Eh no la. I was quite happy driving around in Honda S660. Not much power but handling is awesome.

    wahlau.. if I had that kinda money this topic wouldn't exist.

    E46 must get a 2.5L Inline 6 or higher, i know his taste. But the roadtax and insurance may out of his budget?

    Thanks,

    Yeah you are right. The best thing is go back to this process: Budget > Year > CC > Auto/Manual > Body type > Brand

    Estimated budget 60k
    325 or 328 is about 30k.
    Assuming repair and upgrade to his taste 15k
    Total 45k
    Balance 15k

    Roadtax 2.5liter is RM880
    Balance 15k can pay for at least 10 more years of the high roadtax price??? The car will be almost 30 years old... enough liao lor... hehehe....

    looks like i'm calculating for myself. LoL...

    added. I actually don't mind e46s but has to be specific 2.2 or 2.5 though.

    Nissan Sentra (Genting taxi version)

    You know me well... hahaha... and roadtax isn't a problem la. The max I'll go is 3.0 but if I have a choice I won't go there.

    Yeah.. this is what happens when you have the budget of a pauper.

    I think I can do better in-terms of price. 325/328 is less than 30k actually. Repairs all in probably 10k. Anyway I don't mind the age of the car as long as it's in great condition (no rust, preferably serious-accident-free)

    This is your main problem. Your level of 'great condition' is actually showroom condition to others. I still remember the pics you post abt yr previous BMW which u insist is not completed yet.

    This is my finding in your 'case':
    1.The suspect does not seem to be having problem in the budget dept and he understand his capacity very well.
    2.The suspect has no problem and understand the risk and cost involving purchase of 2nd hand 'premium' car.
    3.The suspect knows what is he looking for and wont be influence by others.
    4.The suspect shows indication that he is having an emotional side effect after the previous purchase.
    5.The suspect is believed to have confirmed 80% on which one he wants to buy.

    Conclusion
    The suspect showed indication of which car he wanted to buy and had most probably decided in his heart & mind. The reason he havent decided to do so is because he is not under time constraint and his level or requirement & expectation is well above other normal buyer.

    Really? Being rust free and relatively problem free isn't really that far demand right? And yes I am quite fussy. Only because I know I've wasted too much money already.

    :marchmellow:

    #1 is half true. I know my capacity very well but budget is stupidly tight.
    #2 & #3 already burnt so much... sure la I understand the risks.
    #4 I'm usually a robot. But you are right - my last few purchases has turned me into a emo-monster. I blame mid-life-crisis.
    #5 yeah.. based on budget.

    Not entirely true, I do have a time constraint. Just that budget doesn't let me simply buy one. Need to be very careful not to be burnt this time.

    Ahh....so a 2.5 BMW is it.
    Now its about which 2.5 BMW is the one that can tick all the right box in yr 300 page checklist.

    Since u mentioned tine constraint, i am guessing within 1-2 month there will be a 5cyl car in your porch...or it wont be as its super satisfying to drive it around that its rarely parked inside as other cars might block its way out of the porch.
