why all option are bimmer???

nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo... hahahaha
Because it's the ultimate driving machine. If I don't want to drive confirm It's the Vellfire.


Why dont u handover the key of your boxer (the engine..not the one below yr waist) and let him indulge for a week or two...

What can go wrong....right?
How did you know there's a key to his boxer (the one below his waist)? Wow, I wonder what you guys do when you're not on the forums. Oh, wait, don't tell me I actually don't want to know.

@Izso buy a car to drive, don't buy one to repair.

If I had a choice between those two good car vs good car, I'd choose the MarkX too. The E90 is smaller inside comparatively. The electronics isn't actually as scary as I'd thought it'd be because like I said - I've built a very strong network of BMW friends and I've even managed to swap rear brakes in an E90 for RM100 with RM50 installation fee. The problematic driver side curtain airbag - RM350 as a fix. I could even change the head on the cheap if needed.

So let me know if ever need any sort of BMW E90 / E60 help.
Well I won't buy anymore cars in the near future.
Ahem, can 6UE5T take a hint? :biggrin:

Keep at home road tax also expensive
My X is for the wife now.

I plan to. Thanks. Haha!


Haha! Nice. it'll be a looooong time before you get sick of that Evo that's for sure.


Not asking you to sell to me la. I doubt I can afford your condition X la.
Yeah I always buy cars for long term use, at least minimum 3-4 years (mostly end up more than 5 years). Cannot afford to keep changing cars, so I think very hard and carefully before deciding to buy.

Yeah I also rather keep it coz still better than buying other automatic cars for that price range. Mine at least already pretty much done up to my liking and the wife loves it too.

There won’t be cars for sale in the future. They are appliances

Electronic hand brake
Electronic steering wheel
Drive by wire
Electric motor and no engine

That’s like my blender. No engine just an electric motor inside.

Hahaha yeah quite depressing for car lovers like us I suppose. They would be just a self driving fully automated mode of transport, no driving needed!

I would definitely buy one of these appliances, but I’ll keep a no nonsense bare bones down to earth car with a stick.

Yeah I also don't dare to buy bimmer yet even though I know they're nice to drive. In fact I don't dare to buy any German or other non Japanese cars yet. Probably coz I don't have enough knowledge on them too so still scared to own one. The only non Japanese cars that I had ever had any experience we're my dad's 1984 Peugeot 505 and 1983 Mercs 280E. The 505 was super comfy but shit on other aspects, and the 280E was nice and built like a tank but also quite complicated for its time. The rest are all Japanese.

my side of story for bimmer...(sitting in, driving, repairing)

i would say scooby would give more smile per mile and per money spent on... especially when getting part is cheaper and troubleshoot much easier than bimmer....

servicing a bimmer alone need to reset this la reset that la...enough to turn me away far far away....

(*on e90 specifically)

Yeah, maybe I keep my Evo for 10-15 more years?

Yeah glad I chose the Mark X instead of 325i, or else maybe I can't buy my Evo now coz money sucked up by the bimmer!

Hahaha ok will try to match you! But by then maybe my left leg not enough power anymore to press this Evo clutch!
Actually own VR for 19 years already. This year VR is 28 years old.
That is why my clutch is normal specs.... Hahaha
