Affected by the low COE huh? None of the above three cars are impressive - all due for replacement soon.

Staying within more or less the same category or price range, I'll consider
- topping up a little and get the Corolla Axio that PIs have brought in. It looks pretty good.
- Suzuki swift
- Mitshibishi i (damn cute)
- Copen

Tho I voted Sunny. If given a free choice and budget, I will go for S2000.
Now targeting to get a Getz or Swift for OC. So changing my T4 will have to wait. Hoping to get OC Getz then find excuse to chg T4 to pre-owned S2000. :x
Next car: S3, TTS, .GT-R (if lady luck bless me)...or maybe XC60.
Current: GTI mtm stage 1, forge dv, Cross coilover.
03-07: S40 T4
00-03. VTI

Sorry to OT a bit, but S2k now $134k COE in brand new from PI leh, might as well get it new. The lucky colleague of mine kena the $6k COE thing, so got rebate some more. Terch abt to buy already, GP with him may be cheaper.

Zika - S2k good lah. Was at newton for dinner the other night when I realised that I forgot to top up my coupon. So saw this nice red Evo 9 parked opp me. Wanted to buy a coupon from him, and he said wow, S2k ah. Started talking cxxx abt car, and he was saying he forgot his camera to shoot some photos of the interior. See, rarity is fun. :x

As for 2nd car, my vote goes to swift. If can stretch a bit, the swift sports is quite nippy.

Think of the 3 choices above, the lancer is probably the most value for money now (just heard it is going at ard 40K only).

But my choice would be either S2k (if got lotsa dough) or a MRS (cos cool factor + last batch of 500 production cars only). And its only ard 85K

If it's going to be a second car, do you really need another 4-door, 5 seater 3-box-design sedan? How many times a month would you need to ferry around TEN people anyway?

Why not pamper yourself and get a second hand coupe or roadster, or even a brand new one if your budget stretches that far? `fu

My favourite of the moment is:

But if you're looking for another family car anyway, this one would be my favorite choice
