Heart vs Brain thing right now. For now surely between these two models.

I drive the current mazda3, and i'll fill you a bit from my perspective.

I've test driven the 2013 civic, and since you're coming from it, the mazda3 is a step down, because the interior space will feel like a downgrade for you. The upcoming mazda3 have some interior space improvements, but still unlikely to top your current ride.

I would suggest the golf GTI, ada gaya, ada perfromance, relatively comfortable. Your budget definitely can't afford new, but recond version is within your budget.

Actually I saw the new Perdana looks pretty handsome. Very spacious and it's a re-engineered Honda Accord(previous gen) so should be reliable. Price between 103k-127k.

Not many ppl can accept conti especially when they know it's a VW, with Turbo, some more DSG...

But I got to agree with you, VW GTI ada gaya, performance, space and comfortable, FC not that bad, my full tank RM 100+- can go 4xxkm (mine is stage 2+)

I own GTI MK6, it's one of my favorite, I can guarantee, 'once you try it, hard to turn back'

With a proper schedule maintenance, GTI won't cause any issue, unlike TSI.

Come back to TS choices, with this budget, X70 (SUV) or Civic (saloon)

TS said SUV not really his fancy, and some more x70 is proton brand, no gaya when balik kampung.....

New civic is natural logical choice unless TS sick of honda....

I too fancy the golf GTI, but err more towards the golf R if really go down this route tongue.gif

Golf GTi is one of the option but as for my budget, topup abit pun could only afford those 2015 and below model (recon / used / pre-reg)
Do you think its a good choice to get car manufactured 4-5 years back?

At the same price point there are other models to consider:
-2015 Mini 3 Door
-2016 BMW 318i, 320i, 320d, 330e (with 1-2 more year(s) warranty and free service)
-2017 BMW 118i, 120i (with 1-2 more year(s) warranty and free service)
-2017 Volvo V40

And yes Civic 1.5TC will be a safe choice but compared to Mazda 3 at same price range,
Mazda now offered 5 Years Warranty with Free Service (labor n parts) not like Honda; plus Civic is everywhere weh..

What say you?

Perdana, Camry, Accord and other D-Segments seems too bulky and tak menepati citarasa... at least for now.
I'm still young.. need to consider 'Chick Magnet' vibes as well. whistling.gif

And not looking into SUV but I do keen to test drive the new X70

Never tried any Merc car but I dont think it is within my budget mega_shok.gif

If TS is young, X70 and D segment won't be his choice, as you said, no gaya la... But hey, if you willing to mod the D segment with large wheel, big brake, lowered and etc... Very sexy also. See my Vellfire (avatar)

Golf R is nice, but bear in mind R much more maintenance than GTI, if Mod vs Mod, GTI can be faster than R.

Any car over 5 years will start the enter workshop more often, if you care about maintenance, better go for new car, Civic TC is most suitable for you.

BMW has 5 years free service, if you choose 2016 used car, remaining warranty at least 2 years, can explore 318i which within your budget, more gaya than jap car definately.

1 series.... I have 1 unit 120i, it's a very nice and fun car, the setback is the rear room is very small, not suitable for any adult sitting behind.

Can you give an example what car will look rich but wallet empty?

Nowadays maintaining Jap car can be as high as conti, recently I've sent in my Vellfire to Toyota SC for the check light diagnosis, Toyota SC quoted me 4K to change throttle body and O2 sensor, the price is similar to what VW SC charged to replace GTI's throttle body and some sensors.

Have you test driven the mazda 3 and the civic? If not, just go test drive to get a baseline feel of the car before deciding on the european options.

Mini is kind of a time bomb as some models within that batch may have crankshaft issues. If not for the lack of volvo specialists, the v40 would be nice, but i guess just leave volvo aside for now.

Forget about 1/2 series, 318 and 320, instead search for good examples of 328i. Base models just compromise too much just for the badge and the maintenance still sama sama level. 328i has really good performance.

Have a look :

https://www.mudah.my/BMW+328i+M+Sport+75k+k...rd-69880345.htm

Might as well just go through the whole listing on your own tongue.gif

New civic is indeed nice car. But most of the time when I met one on the road usually driven by rempit.

Even old people kena the disease. Sigh

So recommend TS to stay away from it.

If that's the case, i suggest you check out bmw financing package. You'll find they have quite a fee options. Aming them is hp/lease whereby you can opt to upgrade after a certain period by returning the car to them. There are terms and conditions of course and bmw has 5 year warranty and service.
