I like the E90 design more than F30. It has a design of its own, just like the E46. Will feedback to you guys after i test drove F30. Haven't have time to try one.

Thanks.
Ken
Please do. But from my own observation in E90 MSport 320d and F30 MSport (without adaptive suspensions), I can tell you FOR SURE, the F30 is way more comfortable.

This article is VERY informative on e90 vs f30 with actual measurements.

Poison ... Red colour, very flashy but i love it. Is this Quattro or FWD ? He didn't really describe. I found one Quattro A4 sells about RM100k but the car feels very harsh to drive, almost Evo like. May be shot absorber.

Thanks
Ken

this model i think high chance is quattro...

and being wagon, the ride could be a little bit more on plushy side.... (due to extra tail weight)


...or perhaps during your last test, u were accidentally pressed the sport button mode? :driver:

Hahaha i set the adaptive dampers to sport, may be that's why ... DSG shift lightning fast. But ride and handling, BMW 325i is better.

Wagon ride? I would consider Evo IX Wagon :adore:

Thanks,
Ken

Why not Audi Avant S4? Since you have an Evo already.

Nope not doing that, can't get loan for this sort of car ...

Thanks,
Ken
If 2006 car maybe can still get loan from Public Bank, no? Coz last time Public Bank provided up to 12 year old cars if I remember correctly.

Near 2018 already...:smokin:
Not aware of that, 12 years old car, minimum can get an EVO 9 2006 LOL ...

Pretty sure i will go with a 325i, was very happy with another well maintained one which revs to 7k rpm like a champ and shift crispy. 200+ Hp N/A 6cyl engine really intoxicating. Haven't try K20A - R though. Anyone can give me a ride :burnout:

Thanks,
Ken
