    Think of it this way. Would you marry a reliable Japanese woman or a flashy looking Chinese woman?

    Drove the new Mitsu Eclipse Cross and I’m amazed by the balance between comfort and handling. Certainly comfortable as a car, while being sporty enough to rocket out the corners. Highly recommend over the Honda CRV. The turbocharged 1500cc is much more livelier than what you get in the CRV. Only downside is the fuel economy which is around 12kmpl during long runs and 6-7 round the town.

    Update : Brake system rebuilt with a master pump repair kit, wheel cylinder rubbers (washers) and new brake liners. All pipes cleaned, flushed and filled with new oil. Here are some images.

    @Magnum today I got a chance to drive a KDH205(correct me if the code is wrong) which is 3000cc and fully loaded with climate control ac. I'm really impressed how this babe perform as a van!! I never thought that I would love to drive a van. But my mind totally changed after driving it. I totally agree with every detail you provided in the review. Really comfortable in long journeys. It's not comfortable as a car, but there is a totally different way how a Hiace handles the potholes or bumps: It just gives a boat like feeling when hitting a pothole, softening the sudden impact. This is totally different from a Hilux. And man the engine is a devil on mountains. I did a few risky overtakes on a hilly road and this babe pulled like a demon. Really impressed how she performed as a van. Would really love to drive something like an Alphard.

    Not by only changing the fuel pump, unless you change the ECU mapping and may be the injectors. You may be able to get more fuel in to the system if the pressure is increased but doubt there will be a significant improvement. Fuel mixture will be too rich and will have other issues plus reduction in economy. If you need more power upgrade to a CS3 .

    Hi Sameed..welcome to the forums...the Insight has been discussed quite a lot on the forums. Please search the forums (you will see a search option above as well). If you budget is 3mil..please do not spend all 3mil on buying a car. You should save a bit for unplanned issues with the car and some basic repairs you must do as soon as you buy the car. Especially if you are buying a Hybrid....you are looking at a really old Hybrid so battery replacements and repairs of the other Hybrid system components are a very high probability. I advice you to read the thread on "How to buy a used car" on the forum. As for the Insight....may I ask why you want to buy an Insight ? Out of all the Hybrids of the time period the Insight would not necessarily be the number 1 choice....also..why do you need a Hybrid ? For your budget there could be a few other better options especially if you are willing to go with a hatchback and gasoline (and korean or malaysian)

    For me the best automotive related youtube channels are, Chrisfix- IMO Chris is a Legend when it comes to DIY videos.His clear presentation is top notch and to the point.Been following his "Driftstang" project from the beginning and I am totally hooked. Gears & Gasoline- This is relatively a new channel and from a tuner perceptive their videos are excellent. It attracts tuner cars from all over and let them take through an overview of their respective build. Highly entertaining and top notch video editing. More importantly the channel covers all the aspects of the automotive industry. Project builds,Tuning, Walkthroughs, Maintenance, to name a few. Eric the Car guy- If you are extremely into mechanical aspect then this is channel for you. Eric is a guy who will completely tear down the engine and explain every single part in detail.

    Not to mention the fact that at some point of time, you will need to use silicone or no-leak to seal the damn thing shut!

    Exactly. So the sambola sticks to the rice ... you can eat just rice and sambol if the rice is like that. Next best thing is with string-hoppers, and finally with good old roast-paan. Damn it it's 4pm i'm in office and now I'm hungry.

    අම්මට හුඩු .!! I just found my long lost twin! 😀😀 Haven’t met many people who had the same feeling towards cars (not only BMW`s but in general as well). I drive car made in 2018 daily, the thing can brake by itself, tries to keep within the lane, supremely quiet and comfortable, accelerates like anything, etc…... I have also driven a few BMW models: E36`s, E46`s, E90`s, few modern ones (440i, 120i, 320i etc…). Also other stuff from Golf Gti`s to WRX`s to Audi A4`s.. But my GOD the E30 is so much more engaging and fun at legal speed limits! I`ve driven a 320HP BMW 440i to its limits, honestly felt a bit ‘meh’ in comparison (power, safety and comfort is a completely different story here but..). The airiness of the cabin, knowing exactly what the 4 wheels are doing, feeling the steering linkage doing its thing, hearing the brake booster hissing when the pedal is pressed, the engine being lethargic as soon as its started then coming to life slowly. Any of this can hardly be experienced in a newer car. !

    Found a couple of pics of my little YEEE 30 taken at the car park at a BMW Agent. Look at the generation gap and the size difference. Light blue - E46 M3 Dark Blue – F20 1 series, most probably a 120i White – Current model 5 series Light blue in the far end – Most probably an E92 coupe (325i). -------------------- --------------------

    There are good Korean brands that are even fitted to Euro performance cars Do not expect to save on the price, they are more expensive than Thailand/ Indonesian Euro/ Jap brands Brand like GT is generally ok for day to day use
