A civic coupe? The one in fast and furious for 30k?
Those are USDM/CDM only cars which mean they will be LHD.

I have only EVER seen 1 for sale (converted to RHD).

Do tell about this though "some examples can be found below RM30,000 now"
Would love to start a project car based on this :D
i came across a black ej coupe for sale, rm27,500 on mudah, d15 engine

and some examples few moons back at 25,000

u need to hunt mudah everyday, try doing the following, search : civic, year reg "1992-1996" every day and u will find one!

my cousin has one ej coupe from uk, so its rhd!

bought for 30k many moons ago too

i did include prelude in the first write up in the under 10k retro car

I really don't think you can get a running condition DC2 for anything less than 40k. My friends old DC2 sold in 2005 for RM55k and that was cash only cuz bank couldn't provide loan.

Anyway, out of the whole list, realistically for me I can only afford to play with the Putra. Watched a rebuild with my tuner for a Putra that had dangling body panels and a roughed up interior which turned into a swan of a Putra that was poking at Hondas because of the stroked engine.. only to hear about it getting drenched in a flood.. survived the flood.. then flooded again... survived again.. only to be stolen and chopped all within 6 months. Apparently the block was found in Sunway, the body in Kedah and seats on the internet.

Sigh. Better stick with my cheapass-no-body-wanna-steal-buruk-Wira.

The thing is most these cars are over rated... That's why at times you see the price sky high...

yes like i said, i cant vouch for the said condition of the cars. i only saw all of these on mudah,motortrader and zth. but yeah, well the price still fluctuates around 30k plus, it will be lucky if u can knock off the price at 30k!

but yeah as my experience tells me, forumer lan evo bought that dc1 from the dealership across jc racing. but yeah sorry about that putra! well u can get an 808 and prove something!!! izso

i dont think eg6 is a "budget" hot hatch... hot hatch yes, but definitely not budget.. LOL.

finding a eg/dc at that price would solely depend on your luck and how desperate the seller is.

to my knowledge, eg's are going for 32-45k depending on specs while dc's are pretty much 45-60k onwards.

if its 30k and below, i'd question the price and car.. honestly. but good info no doubt, was wondering where the legendary satria was.. since putra is there.. i think satria is an even cheaper platform..

well its budget now cos vw just upped the game with the vw polo gti and vw golf gti! LOL

so anything that doesnt cost 100k, is still budget and very much affordable. if a person saves up rm1000 a year, times 36 months, he would have afforded an eg coupe or hatch!

that means, many years of suffering public transport, LOL

there are tons of hot hatches, like satria, mazda 323, ford laser, nissan pulsar, vw golf mk2, etc, LOL

maybe i'm bias, but how come hyundai coupe is in the list but mr2 is not?
sw20 mr2 costs like rm30k+? cant find any cheaper

though i know the previous gen costs like 20k+ if ur lucky

but then again, if these cars are super rare, then the chances of meeting one, is almost 0!

sorry forgot to mention, i meant mr2 mk1 - aw11
talking about rare... i think civic coupe is as rare as a aw11 in malaysia too
just my opinion, cos i did search for that both before i bought my car

ahh alright, well i think the aw11 is nice too, but isnt the 4age a bit underpowered to the car compared to the 3sge or 3sgte found in the sw20

i think both are equally as rare, but i spotted a few coupe for sale on mudah, 25k and 27.5k respectively. i did came across an aw11, mint condition for 25k. so yeah, i must admit, these are lists i thought of myself, u are free to add it this list
