is there any fun car out there under 40k? here are some requirements

1) relatively cheap to run
2) NA/Turbo no problem
3) Strong and safe chassis (wife requirement)
4) Manual only
5) Prefer cornering > straight line speed, but if have both, why not?
6) Cash buyer

what is in my mind now is Suzuki Swift Sport ZC31S, is there any cars that didn't slip through my mind? pls let me know yea tongue.gif

There is one for sale at mudah. Though I know some backstory for it (could be wrong). TS can PM me if you need the info for it.

SSS is a great choice albeit the spare parts prices are on the high side.

a Neo CPS MT would be easier on the wallet to buy and maintain.

Better still 2nd hand Suprima. Apparently handling and CVT tuning abit more aggressive than Preve despite same engine and gearbox.
Cause Preve is more like a family sedan.

CVT should take good care of it. and it will last.

Ford Fiesta should also be in your consideration. Own an Ecoboost, and its such a joy to drive. Good performance and excellent handling around corners. Since you’re into manual, you can get the 1.4LX. Also, I know some people who converted their Fiestas from DCT to manual as well as the DCT is known to have issues, so maybe you can do that too hehe

Oh yes Fiesta 1.4LX MT is a good choice, relatively reliable too.,

Get the ones with 7 airbags after 2012.
