Hello sifus,
If I want to buy a 2nd hand car (cash not loan). How much "extra" do I need to have in hand to cover the other expenses (e.g. insurance, change of ownership, inspections e.t.c)? In particular i am considering this one bmw e46 320i

*
Either go for 318i [ 1.9L ] cause I was told that this is a work horse & less problematic than its 2.5L brother , less issues to tackle , even change engine oil/plugs also less , 4.5 liter vs 6.0 liter & 4 plugs vs 6 plugs. Downside is less torque compared to a 2.5L & if you go for Club meets, you will felt alone [ powerwise ] cause all your other members will be driving a 2.5/2.8/3.0L , zenix advice me on this thumbsup.gif

Avoid the 3.8i 2.0L engine.

But then again the 2.5L is a very machine & you pay lower roadtax compared to a 2.8 or 3.0.

E46 318Ci if you like 2 door coupe



This car will put many God car to shame

you have to ask LSM1991 about suprima s and preve cfe because he knows these cars more than me. And he was born in 1991 and he is older than me. I was born in 1997.

You are same age with my Wira 1.5 MT. but my car was "born" in April, bought it new from the Jln Chan Sow Lin Proton Center after waiting for 2 mths with booking fees paid.

Why avoid the 2.0? Care to enlighten this noob?

Thanks for the input, just re-checked the ad an noticed its actually the 318i (2.0L) n46 engine.

If you are fine with the annual RT of abt rm860, just get a 2.5L M54B25 Beemer. more powerful & better FC

I seen one and almost paid a rm1k deposit but my eagle eye mech fren open the engine oil cap , smell it, peep inside , saw a lot of sludge , advice me to abort the purchase cause it will require an overhaul , minimum top overhaul to solve it. But the auto transmission was good & speed damn powerful , 2.5L the way to go bro...........

Hehe.. you sifus here love to serve poison  devil.gif well call me a sucker, i'm gonna go for the 325i  sweat.gif have to start hunting now.

Yes, E46 325i ~ M54B25 engine, production till 2006 if I am not mistaken. Damn POWDERFUL mang

As for me I opted for the 318i 1.9L cause I am a cheapskate non racer that calculates on maintenance & intends to fully restore it to former showroom glory.

1. First of all, is your Seller still owing the bank any money? If so, he needs to do a settlement with the bank first. You probably need to make an agreement with him that you write a cheque and get him to settle the bank loan first. Within a week, the car will be ready for transfer.

2. Seller to proceed to Puspakom to have his car checked. He need to provide you with the B5 (for JPJ transfer). This will cost him RM30. Or he can get a runner to do it, add about RM100 (he will bear it all).

3. You need to purchase the insurance for the car. You can use iMoney to get more information on this and compare before going to the insurance agent/office.

4. Bring your Puspakom documents and Insurance cover note and proceed to JPJ to complete the transfer.
a) Both Seller and Buyer must be present. If not, you need to get a commissioner of oaths to verify the absent parties on a Borang Akuan (JPJ-SAB01 and JPJ-SAB02). Write a simple authorization letter for a representative along with photocopies of his identification card.

b) Fill up Borang TM-1 and two copies of JPJ-K3.

c) Transfer costs is borne by the Buyer (i.e. you) and should cost RM100. If you do not have the time, you can hire a runner to do it (add about RM200).

5. Once done, you pay the Seller the rest of the money owed and Seller will hand over the car and keys to you. This can also happen in step 1, depending on your arrangement with your Seller.

My idea is,

If you can afford Japs, then no need waste time on Proton/Perodua.

You compare Proton/Perodua with Japs, people definitely suggest Japs.

If you don't ever want listen people's suggestion, then you shouldn't ask any single question and end up keep repeat your idea.

Like Iriz MT? Just go for it. Simple.

ok no more stubborness.i surrender because toyota win. But i am still going to get iriz mt.it is ok. My mother has a toyota ipsum(picnic) at home so i have no argument against you.Yes now i admit that  japanese cars beat perodua and proton.My favourite japanese cars are definitely toyota picnic,toyota fortuner and toyota innova and honda civic.Proton Perdana is not a local car but japanese cars because honda made the whole body of proton perdana but proton did make some changes but in the end it is still a honda accord version of malaysia.

my question may not be directly related to this topic. I was thinking to buy a used car (second car) and looking for C or D segment like camry or accord. Perhaps year 2006 and 2008. At the same time I have an option to bring my 16 years old camry from overseas (have AP but obviously need to pay tax, shipping, insurance etc). I just wondering whether it worth to bring this 16 year old car back (no major issues with the car) or simply buy used car in Malaysia.

How much would all the taxes + shipping + insurance + puspakom + JPJ add up to ?

QUOTE(roadie @ Jul 22 2016, 01:01 AM)
what are the negatives for buying an old/classic car (manufactured 1970s or earlier)? some of the questions i have are...
- is there any additional road tax etc that have to pay for owning old car?
- will insurance company provide comprehensive cover?
- are spare parts still available for brands like toyota, datsun, mazda etc? are they expensive?
*
1) no & infact you can apply for Classic Car status to have a cheaper roadtax

2) yes, but can only opt for third party fire & theft and not comprehensive coverage

3) there are lots of made in japan & taiwan & balakong parts for sale nowadays & price depends on brands like a tiga lima brand [ jepun ori ] ball joint for a 1972 toyota can fetch > rm300 almost same price of a aftermarket of a e46 front lower arm ball joint set which cost abt rm450 [ i just asked my mech ]

I am currently interested in a kia cerato (reg. dec 2013) from a used car dealer. But I need a help from someone who can recommend a mechanic who can help inspect the car and check if got in accident before.

The problem is the dealer don't let me take the car out of the dealership, so the mechanic have to come to the dealership at Jalan Klang Lama, next to Federal highway and the LDP "Penang Bridge"

Can anybody help me with this? Hopefully can check on this Monday, then I will put down booking fee d.

How much you can offer to ask a Kia's mechanic to take a half day leave from his job at any Kia' 5S Service Center to help you out ?
