Yeah , thought that once finish the 7 years loan installment last year I can afford to relax abit and perhaps slightly upgrade (mod) abit more which I did till came the global financial crisis affected my income by a couple of extra k .By then , all further plans for mods was put on hold and now redirect focus to maintaince . One of my buddy used to tell me not to be too happy once loan are fully repaid coz that is when comes the maintaince $$$ .And sadly to say that couple of things started to worn out here and there . Well , I rather have them replaced part by part then to get another new car and start to start financing again .Beside that ,the Wira have no sale value . Most I can get out of it , I guess will be much less than RM15k. Plan to have it well maintance and pass it to my son in a couple of years time. :smile_ smile_tongue.gif

I think for now with the crisis coming, it is better to maintain the existing car.
Actually for all the 7 cars that I have owned, only one is new and that I bought cash also. But those days the car was cheap. It was a Civic 1st Gen and cost 11k only (Loan from father)... smile_big.gif
So actually I did not have much depreciation problems and the cars I actually keep quite long before selling off.

At a start your son will take your wira, but once he starts work...upgrade.... smile_tongue.gif
