welcome to the beast club.

BTW, who on earth, other than you two will ever consider spend 50% of the car price on mods?  laugh.gif

C'mmon bro. It's Malaysia. Everything is fucking expensive here.   sweat.gif

A LOT of foreigners did. There's a recent YouTube 'er I watched who did just that and more, the total amount he spent could have gotten him a R35 GTR instead that will beat the 86 in just about any way.

=edit=
Thinking back, technically I did the same with the Inspira. So lol

Wa, the way you itemize it actually made me realize how even I (the other 2dudes aside hah) underestimated the cost laugh.gif

Hahaha, I'm not in the 'beast' club la, I just made some guesstimate based on what I know la.
Note that some of those are used stuff wor, like used rims and calipers! Imagine if you want to buy brand new ori RPF1 and Brembo/AP Racing/Project Mu calipers? Easily top up another 10-15k there. Then how about carbon fiber seats? Belum lagi if you want fully built motor with forged internals to take more boost? Endless possibilities with endless spending! laugh.gif

Tires to properly take in all that power need at least 3k+ (AD08R), more if you're planning to widen it beyond the usual 215/225 width lol

Foreigners, are a whole different story.

Like me, I also just watched somebody rebuild a crashed evora around 40k usd-ish, which is barely enough for a top spec camry in the states.

Comparing like this have zero context, since car price, part price and buying power is way off.

Thus, it is increasingly rare to see people in Malaysia dumps 40-50k in a 100k car.

I absolutely respect those people. laugh.gif

But again, it make no sense, at all. rclxub.gif

For me, it's still a 100k car.
Few thousands for the suspension, maybe 5 for the brakes and a full 10k in a mild FI.

Of course, you won't expect to see all new shiny stuff in this scenarios. Bummer. laugh.gif

I dump 30k on minor mods /maintenance for a 60k Inspira. 20k fuel over 2 years also not included.
Then 20k on loan repayment.

I know, I never did made much sense when it comes to things I love laugh.gif

don't bully me cry.gif Yeah, very true and valid points, but for me and my age, I'd so much rather have an 86 than a Camry as a daily with the 140k budget. So to each their own icon_rolleyes.gif

WOW didn't expect wild GT86 will appear in this poll

Interesting most Malaysian prefer the Civic over the Mazda 3, maybe due to turbo haha
