MUCH better than Camry handling wise tbh but as you mentioned, steering is light and lack of feedback.

Impressive indeed but I'm guessing if you have a heavy foot, it'll change as well hehehe. Mine can't even do 10km/l, 9km/l at best (I have a very heavy right foot). But long distance is different story tho, very efficient and can get about 900km just considering it has about 65l of fuel not including reserve :burnout:

Post some pictures man, I'd like to know what mods you've done too. Not in this thread tho, maybe next door :biggrin:
Even with occasional spirited driving, I can still get around 10km/ltr on full tank average. However there are those in our club who cannot get anywhere near my FC, not sure how they drive and how are their cars condition. Then there are also a few who can reach similar or even better than mine.

I've posted 1 photo in one of the thread with topic about discussing what cars we're driving now, TS by Renesis. I'm shy to post thread for my own car la, nothing much to shout about and looks minimalist actually. Now looks a bit beaten up too with some cracks on the front skirting and scratches on the rims. :biggrin:

Condition will very much affect the fuel consumption, I am guessing yours is top notch.

Ahhhh I have to dig in that thread yea? hahahaha. Tbh I'm interested cuz I've never actually seen anybody modding their MarkX.

Haha, you won't see much from such single photo. It was an old photo as well. :biggrin:

No lah, no money to upgrade. Maybe downgrade instead!
You can argue izso “downgrade” also ma. He sold the STD for an even older car.

So what you downgrading to? Unless you’re getting STD then that’s really downgrade.

No lah, no money too for now. If I were to change, it should be a more fun & faster car than mine now, and not FWD (either another RWD or AWD but more interested to AWD since I never had one before). A manual one would be ideal too but not entirely opposed to another auto car as long as it's responsive enough in semi auto mode (better than mine now).

More likely though instead of for myself, I'd probably need to buy one for my older son first, most likely a manual Suzuki Swift Sport.

Get him a manual Satria Neo 1.6L and ask him make his own money.

You can get an Evo or Scooby. Lol. Caldina also can.

It's actually my idea to give him the SSS, he doesn't ask for anything specific. Satria is a 2 door so not that practical, and I don't like it too to be honest. Coz even though mainly for him but occasionally I'd like to drive it too for some fun! :driver: Really tempted with the ZC32 actually.

Yeah Evo has always been my first choice, either the 6.5 TME, 8MR, or 9 would be the best. Scooby is great too but I much prefer Evos. Caldina I don't like coz it's a 4 speeder auto and it's a wagon!

The only reason (IMO) to get Scooby over Evo is the price here in Malaysia. EVO still commands a premium. Don't think the 2006 Scoobies are that bad. BUT, buy what YOU like.

Caldina, haha, yes. I always find the car a bit odd, its almost the size of a Wish but only 5 seater.

ZC32 in bumble bee yellow is nice.

Yup unfortunately Evos are still expensive especially those versions I want, while Scooby depreciates just like normal cars, except maybe the S206. I guess Evos are more in demand than Scooby. I'm like bro Izso, just not so interested in Scooby and I really think Evo is the better car in general hence my preference (and seems like the market also agrees hence the higher price still). I suppose it's becoming like a JDM collector car.

Yes the ZC32 in yellow is nice but if buying used cars especially those not so common ones, we cannot be so choosy with colors. Anyway for this car only 2 colors available, yellow and white and my boy actually prefers white though coz more low profile. I'm also still considering the older ZC31 coz much cheaper already.

Caldinas are not a good buy. There are so many broken down models and you rarely ever see any on the road. My friends mechanic made his money from Caldinas too... he himself tells us to not buy Caldinas unless you want to give him business.

That bad? I thought the 3S-GTE was a bullet proof engine.
