    Generally speaking no. But there are so many S60s out there that the support is actually quite manageable. Not cheap but not crazy expensive like the S80 or other models. Apparently it's a S40 and 60 market out there

    Sigh.. the E46 manual didn't pass inspection by professionals. SMG to manual conversion was not done properly so there's a few problems with the car that wasn't visible until it was jacked up. So that E46 manual is out of the question.

    Accord Euro R it is then...

    I still remember an old japanese video where they put 3 cars - EK9, Integra -R, and accord euro R on a track tondo a hot lap.
    Suffice to say both 2 door car cannot outrun the sedan.

    which Euro-R? CL1 uses F20 engine and imho is quite weak. The CL7 is still 80k and above!!

    CL1 to K20 not PNP. Too much work so can't. Unless I buy a Civic ES and transplant a full DC5 into it.

    Dude seriously you need to check this out:
    https://www.mudah.my/2011+Suzuki+Swift+1+6+M+-71958282.htm
    This is 2011 model, the last year of the ZC31S, first owner, low mileage, and it seems in excellent condition with some pretty good upgrades already. Here in mudah asking rm35k but actually in the Swift Club FB only asking rm33k still nego! I'd definitely check it out if I haven't bought mine, and I'd rather take this than any of your choices above because all of those are just too damn old already!

    but the car is too small for his family, and it is not a sedan.

    actually that's a pretty decent deal, can loan still.

    Yeah but he still put Myvi in his poll list so then I suggested this. And yes it's a big plus to still be able to loan especially since he's on very limited budget.

    15k for my turbo boat. Half the price, twice the fun cause the boat is trying to kill you at every corner.

    Lol

    Anyway I think our friend shouldn’t
    1) buy anything on impulse
    2) don’t buy anything if possible cause if you don’t need a car it means you just want a car and spending money irresponsibly doesn’t help.

    I want a Lotus Elise S3, buying it is just plain irresponsible.
