bmw e90 320i or honda edix better??plsssss.....

Hi fellas :wavey:,

I have a question for beloved ZTH members (hope dont "tiaw" me..:adore:), before the questions, here some info regarding that matter :

I'm planning to buy above car, either bmw e90 320i/honda edix.
I'm randomly survey the price for bmw e90 320i production made from 2005 till 2007 is around 95k to 120k and the honda edix production made from 2004 till 2006 is around 75k till 85k.
My gross salary somewhere around 3.8k per month.
I already a permenant staff and working here since feb 2011.
I have no credit card..no personal loan (just make full sattlement last month)..no housing loan..and also no car loan till today..
I'm planning to get married this january 2013 d:-)
I'm want to buy a car because i want to see my ''titik peluh'' from my salary rather i just spend my salary for nonsense thing, atleast i cant see ''something physically'' infront of me.

So my questions is :
which one is the better, bmw or honda? (interm of....)

-payment,2nd value,downpayment and anything related with value and financial issue.
-maintainance,handling,modification (not to soon),consumption,features,and anything related with the technology and engines.
-comfortable for family (because planning get married)
-long term or short term usage.


ps : please guys..i need your advice..:bawling:

I can only tell you that e90s have known manufacturer faults with the engine. On top of that, the engine gaskets and oil seals leak every 3 years or so. So be prepared to spend thousands of ringgit on fixing oil leak issues.

this is what happen to my friend that just bought e46 early this year
now already 1 month at the workshop
no enough fund to cover 3k for similar issue
 
Betwen your 2 choices, I'd choose the BMW, but rather than that BMW, I'd go with a Toyota Mark X 250G 2005-2006.
But then concerning the level of salary you're making right now, I STRONGLY urge you NOT to spend that much money on cars! Instead just buy a cheap economical car like Myvi. I suggest you focus more on your career, work hard and save as much as you can for your future rather than spending so much on a car. Think about buying a house later, not just cars!
Just try to calculate, if say you buy a car for 100K with 3.5% interest per year for 7 years, then you will be paying roughly >1300 per month, meaning you will spend about 1/3 of your salary just on car installment! That's not yet accounting for fuel and maintenance. You don't want to be driving BMW but then be stingy on food, etc2 right?? You don't want to take your girl in a BMW but then go out on dates to cheap places every time, right?? :) Unless of course you got parents who support you, but trust me, being independent using what you can really afford will feel more rewarding and proud than depending on others.
I suggest you wait until your salary is AT LEAST double what you got now, then you can start to consider buying cars in 80-120K range.

That's just my 2 cents though, of course you're free to use your money as you wish. :)

In hope you'll indeed make a wise decision. :)
I'm giving you that advice because when I started working more than 15yrs ago, having a nice car was the main thing on my mind! But then it didn't do me any good other than just little pride which got eroded quickly whenever I needed money for something else much more important. Trust me, I'm more of a car nut than 90% of the people I've known, but yet I would never buy a car that cost more than what I can make in a year, no matter how desirable the car is to me!
 
Toyota Altezza. Better choice for ur budget.:driver::driver::driver::driver:

BMW e90 and Edix are 2 opposite end of the scale....

Brand new City cost >90K. With you current salary level of about 40-45K per year, so you're still thinking of buying cars more than double what you make in a year?? Honestly if you ask me, you should NOT buy a car over RM50K! And that leaves you only with new Myvi 1.3 or Proton Saga FL if you want a new car. I know those are not much of a car and not what you want to hear but even with a Myvi, it already costs a tad more than you make in a year! So just be wise and forget about having nice cars for now. Myvi is good enough to get you around with good fuel efficiency and it is a simple car with reliable engine (from Toyota) so you can also start to learn about taking care of a car.

2-better NVH
3-safer (electronic stability program , traction control, 7 airbags in sedan, Euro NCAP 5 stars, u can youtube crashtest fiesta against peu 308 )

6-6 speed dual clutch
7- Dohc TiVCT (aka Dual VVTi for toyota), 120hp engine
8-maintance free, 3 yrs /60k km . total 6 times

oni cons is resale value.

Kidding right? parts damn expensive, lack of part supply, and the service center.. lol..utter crap.. go see the Ford forums in Malaysia and see how many owners "tiaw" Ford Malaysia.

Same case for Peugeot. Can read about Peugeot case here
AHW308: The World Should Know...

a lot of times, buying car is a very pretty affair. or at least, packaged until very pretty. its like meeting a girl for the first time, she looks well dressed, well groomed, make up and all. looked like she can give you a ride of your life.

marry the girl bring home already then all the colours start to show, fart here and there, shake leg, dig nose, shit already don't flush etc. that time you really want to mati.

of course, girls are unique, so in that scenario we're screwed. but cars are mass manufactured, same make and model you can get a pretty good idea of what you will get if you spend time to do some of your own research.

Which is why Toyota & Honda is so popular in Malaysia. Because its a Japanese that many people have owned and ride on, the parts and service centers are abundant, resale value is good because of the former reasons. That being said I think the cars are a far cry from the recent Korean invasion.. yes the K5 is damn pretty, so is the Elantra.. with their plastic surgery

So..the Japanese cars look mundane and boring next to the plastic surgery improved Koreans... but you can be rest assured if you marry the Japanese, she will clean and cook and take care of you. Whereas for the Korean, very soon the plastic surgery will fall apart with age, and that time you will need to flush the toilet after the Korean takes a shit.

The Germans, well, they are good, no doubt about these autobahn cruisers. but they are high maintenance. If you can afford it why not..

Then comes this Honda Edix, a rare Japanese gem, unlike the mainstream Japanese in Malaysia, she is somewhat hard to maintain, some parts are common, while other parts are hard to come by in Malaysia. For example if her headlights were damaged its gonna be pretty hard to find a replacement. So, she's high maintenance as well.

Choices in life.. you can get anything you want, the question is, how much you want to pay in terms of both time and money?

Honestly, forget about the German and the Japanese Gem with your income. Best bang for the buck new car is Proton Inspira, and EON having offer now for 5 years warranty. Pretty funny Proton bashers go on and on about Proton quality suck la this la that la, and then when you go to the EON Service Center, you see Mitsubishi Evolution X getting serviced there next to Protons.

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia is DRB-Hicom, and now so is Proton. Essentially buying a Proton Inspira is just a CKD Mitsubishi Lancer with some local parts. If you're anal about brands, go Toyota, Honda or Nissan.
