For that very purpose I am looking for an old kembara as a 2nd car plus driving at doggie around
ARGH!!! looks like we have something in common then. hands tend to get very itchy to modify the car huh??? But maintenance only is often where else mods are more to one of mod what. Anyways gonna inbox you bro. Some things to discuss.
Yeah bro. Waiting for the next tts to join them. Masih malu kot. All beemers I sesat saga going in.
Bro. Now only 20 la. Girlfriend pun tarak. Apa commitment. Lol. Night life pun jarang d la nowadays. No lubang to take and go (if you guys know what I mean ) Drinking habits that sure got but occasionally. Nasi lemak?? Nothing beats home cooked food bro! But actually I already did a quotation for what I will need to spend my money on. Got quite an amount of savings actually....
Bro USJ where do you live???
Well crime rates can't do much about it. We must be careful about it only I see it. Hahahaha The changing lane is cekap. When's the last I was caught in a jam.... Hmmmm.... Forgot already. Lol
If money is not a problem, by all means go for it! Once you experience the Ultimate Driving Machine, there is no turning back. You will not look at Japanese cars anymore.
Hahaha Definitely bro. Ever since I drove an E46 back 3 years ago, Skyline,Silvia all flew out of the window. It has been only Beemer's and Benz ever since. But nothing can beat the Beemer's Sporty look!
Now got some spare time, wanna do some reasearch of Beemer's engine....
Looking forward to c bro siva with your future 'GF' in any of our tt.
No turning back bro....hehe
Definitely bro I will come. I am anxious to meet all the beemer lovers at the next tt's. But my gf may come end of this year or next year. Still thinking should I present myself the beemer for my 21st birthday. haha. Loner forever.... hahaha.
Frankly i think its better you wait. Unless you are buying the car in cash (no monthly mortgage) and do not plan any social life its really not advisable coz the calculations do not show its sufficient. You still need to pay for insurance and petrol every month.
Bro Siva, I'm quite agree with sifu here..better wait!
I bought mine M43TU19 in Jan13 in a not bad condition, but still, up to now, already spent about 8k++ to change the wear and tear parts to bring it back to tip top condition. Take note, we are ONLY talking at M43 which is quite a well known lower maintenance BM and please be alert I haven't really touch on cosmetic yet!
Yes! Some repair we can do it step by step in stages.but unfortunately, some don't.
Base on experience that I gain when I was hunting my E46.Unless you pay cash, else please don't expect you will getting a good offer loan (because of the car age). You will need to expect "min" 5.5% interest with maximum 3 years installment.
Don't put yourself into trouble and stress when you have choice
Sigh. Actually I kinda agree with you all after taking a nice long drive from USJ to Klang and back to USJ. Guess I have to work my @## off to get paid higher then maybe just buy F30 or what. Kinda attractive once I started reading about 320d. Hopes shattered..... Again...... Nvm la. I just come tts with my saga. See you all drive. Kasi bakar sikit dalam hati gua.... But isn't the interest rate a bit too high even for 2nd hand car??? And I thought maximum loan can get for this car would be 7 years actually.
Any cars that car more than 10 years old, the maximum financing tenor will be lesser than the standard 5, 7 and 9 years. A 2004 model can only be loan up to 6 years (assume taken up this year) with interest of 3.5%. The older the car, the shorter the financing tenor & the higher the interest rates will be. And like what many others have said, maintenance of such an old car is inevitable, despite the cheap market value nowadays.
Siva, no offense meant but u will definately require much higher income if u want to owe a BMW n if u r passionate with it.
I might b an extreme case - I've been driving around n maintaining for d past 13yrs in two 3er, e36 n e46. My total bills to date c/w supporting invoices totalled abt
RM360k for maintenance n mods. Pls note that my cars r not "lemon cases" Excluding petrol, insurance n road tax.
However if u can manage with ur current income, I m happy for u.
Siva further to d above, there r ppl out there who think that they maintained their car exceptionaly n there r those who really maintain their car exceptionaly. Its time n consuming
Hehe... no lemon car but lemon owner.. udm68 is one owner that would keep a spare engine for his cars.. haha!
I was jobless when I first own a used E36 318i manual.. super low maintenance and drinks like a Kancil!
Some people are just so lucky.....
Sport, no offence, but you're still a kid. You'd be better off saving the money and heading back to college. Just my 2 cents worth.
Think of it as a life time investment coz
1. not many cars can keep you and family safe on the road as well as a BMW
2. no one ask you to get the highest spec BMW
3. no one ask you to change car every 3 years
4. Set priority on repairs, many are not critical.. i.e. I won't change my absorber until it leaks, not 10 years, not 20 years, I will allow engine oil leaks to get serious until it starts to wet my porch and until I had to top up every week.
