Getting My First Car
Posted 12 March 2019 - 03:33 PM
I'm looking for a car that's not going to make my bank broke
Currently i'm thinking of getting Mercedes-Benz w124 either 230E/260E.
I've done some research around the internet, and my conclusion is that:
-Parts are not too expensive and can be found easily
-Good car, build to last
-fuel consumption is ok
My questions are:
-Although the parts are relatively cheap and can be found almost everywhere, i need an approximate price for the parts (the important one)
-Some say the fuel consumption is economic, some says "can be ok, but sometimes can be thirsty", wdyt about this?
-How much would the car cost? (Searched in mudah.my and carlist.my it was around 5k-10k MYR, is it the market price? and is it safe to buy from there?)
-Is it hard to change the ownership of the car? Since i'm a foreigner.
-Any suggestion on where to buy the car?
-Any other suggestion of classic cars? e.g.(Audi A4 B5, W123, BMW E36(some said parts kind of hard to get nowadays))

I am not too sure about Foreigners owning a car here in Malaysia so you need to ask around further.
As for a 'student' driving a car, since you're posting in Autoworld, the do have some bargains here:

As a Foreign student, why go for classic car which are more expensive to maintain. Classic car normally collector's car. Why not normal car for everyday use, cheaper to maintain too.....
