WRX is already very very very cheap at $50 - $60k

back in those days when i was younger like you guys

$60k can only buy you a 5 yr old standard Jap.

 

 

however, dont think of owning car just as simply as buying.

 

there are a lot more leakages like, petrol, insurance, taxes, ERP, parking, maintenance.

 

your money will drip away easily....

 

I know so many young people in big debt and cannot get out and get ahead in life becos they fell into the car buying trap.

 

make sure you do your sums and dont assume that everything will be fine.

The philosophy is simple. WRX is a toy. Excellent for fun and speed and aggressive track trashing. It is a lousy family transport car, lousy for bringing your mother to the nice restaurant on Mother's Day, lousy for sending your child to school before going to work and absolutely sucks in a massive PIE traffic jam. Of course, it sux more when you have to drive from point A to point B to search for the best nasi lemak for me. Particularly ME!!! The fish, the egg the rice and the chicken wing! And if the owner is particular about FC, he should never consider the WRX. And if the owner is particular about running costs, he should also never consider the WRX. Regardless it's new or used. Just like what WRX stands for: What Rocks Xtreme.

FC is one thing but main thing is the insurance. it really kills.

 

Backside itchy, i went asking around for WRX insurance recently. Was qouted the following

 

Classic Plan (With standard excess - $1500,windscreen excess - $100) : $5,554.79

 

Premium Plan (With standard excess - $1500,windscreen excess - $100) : $8,402.11

 

Third Party, Fire and Theft : $4,385.00

 

 

Third Party Only : $4,133.28

 

 

even with the minimun coverage, i think it should be enough for me to take cab for the whole year leh.. btw i'm 31 yo this year. no ncd cos it will be my 2nd car.. so scrapped the whole idea of having a wrx for fun....

Ever thought of getting the Golf TSI 160PS? It's not as powerful as the WRX for sure, but it's an excellent all rounder. With the DSG7 speeds, the car becomes very comfortable to drive in without the CVT fun-kill sh!t. Good for family and good for occasional trashing. It's not bad for track too. The timing achieved in PG can match a WRX. The insurance can easily be 50% of the classic plan without NCD before 30 years old. Not mentioning the lower road tax.

depends on tuning also, see how rich or lean can it be. With mods Best FC 9~11, likewise city driving is much of wat MS stated.

 

 

 

9 - 11km per liter?

 

thats very good !

 

 

5 - 8 is pretty standard. we are talking about a 2.5 liter car right?

my 525i does 6 - 7 km per liter.
