yep.. your exactly rite.. its quite rare in malaysia i guess. but at usa, australia and new zealand its everywhere. from newbies to an old guy, drive and tune MPS3/MPS6. parts are "pain in the ass" here in our country but i will try harder and get some network with some mazda oldtimer.

FYI my fren, i actually came out with 2 option before i bought this car. it was GRB sti 2.0 2007/08. Bank loan was horible and also limited choice at used car. so i choose MPS instead.

yeah youre rite.. the only easy to find car parts in malaysia is like proton, perodua, mitsubishi, honda, toyota & subaru.. other than that its fairly hard to find. but even though its a mitsubishis, too old also becoming hard to find.. such as fiore, galant vr4, vrg etc.. even airtrek myself can easily find but genuine new parts cost like a bomb.. try ask for new Air Flow sensor price.. almost 2k bro.. :banghead:

haha.. wasnt it around 210hp? how about the amg tuned? is the spare parts still easy to find?
To what I know there is another model with difference ECU that can add a chip, actually I got that when my stock ECU blew....hhahaha but did not add the chip. That model is 220bhp and there is a RS model at 240bhp. Seems the RS model ECU cannot be used in my base model.......lol
Yup, spare parts still can get.....:biggrin:

ohh i see.. even the RS model only 240bhp. its about the same power output as a downgraded RVR turbo or Airtrek turbo. RVR also has the Hyper sports probably few hp higher..

hahah.. im owning this torq monster soon.. so parts hunting like hell man.:banghead:..
hahah.. i could only afford a 2nd handed MPS bro. i still got the boot space + 6 speed manual gb. but i heard it got bad traction issues..
Yup, a friend of mine has tested it and it has bad torque steer and a bit floating. That's why maybe not so popular here. Most performance enthusiasts seem to prefer either FD2R, Golf GTI, or Megane RS for FWD cars.

the torque steer thing can be significantly reduce by using solid rear engine mount and better suspension setup(at least a sport spring). and yeah those FD2R or Golf GTI are much popular since people talk about it alot so they are so overrated. These other FWD fighter like megane RS, focus st, mps are much more underrated.

im not choosing MPS because i think its the fastest car.. i see potential and boot space.. maybe some FMIC and exhaust + ecu tune, i can have alot of fun on track day..:driver:

Well for FD2R at least it really can produce very fast lap times in Sepang TTA, so not that overrated I think. MPS should be much more comfortable and practical to use than FD2R or Megane RS but not as practical as Golf GTI due to the manual transmissions. Golf GTI though might give more headache for maintenance and repairs/less reliable.

Over priced, yeah I kinda agree in that. But not as over priced as GT86/BRZ!

sometimes it feel good to drive something different which is rarely u sees on the road..
Yup, that's one of my criteria last time when deciding to buy my Mark X. Only 4 options for RWD cars available at that budget with 6 speed & >200HP: Mark X, Lexus IS250, BMW 325i, and Skyline 250. BMW 325i is too common plus I don't trust BMW reliability! Skyline 250 is on the other spectrum, way too rare hence also risky for maintenance and repairs, plus I don't really like the look. IS250 is a bit smaller rear space yet heavier and a bit less powerful, plus I don't need all that luxury. Hence the Mark X was the most suitable, very reliable and still relatively easy to find parts, decent performance, yet not too common on the road. :biggrin:

Smooth V6 on the Mark X.. versus the raging MPS... I wouldn't dare buy MPS... don't know where to find spares. At least the parts for the Mark X is common -- excluding the body.

Mark X body parts also not difficult to get nowadays, got several chop shops to provide. :biggrin:

Mark X is very rare....once a blue moon also cannot see. Hahaha...
Consider luxury dy.
Nowadays getting a bit more common to see around Klang Valley, at least once every couple of weeks will see one on the road.

Surely should be able to get, just need to pay more and maybe even wait for sometime for the order to arrive. :biggrin:
Yup, that is the problem. Like my friend Audi, last time car park one month wait for bumper....:sleep:
