    There is nothing combative about my posts. This is called debate. Is it outlawed here?
    Carry on your debate if you want.
    I've said what I wanted to say and congrats again, happy motoring.

    Toyota C-HR. Will be sold by UMWT. Most likely arriving sometime next year, first in CBU form.

    I really like the Toyota with its fresh and radical design but it is taking too long to come. Right now the Honda outsells the Mazda by a huge margin, mainly due the the price, I guess.
    All are nice looking cars but a bit flamboyant in exterior image for those who are looking for something more low profile.

    If have to choose among the three, Toyota would be the one because of their reputation in building reliable car.

    I agree.

    With the exception of those who were born rich or lucky enough to have rich parents who drive big car like Mercedes in the 70s-80s, I believe most of the owners of expensive car on the road now have gone through hardships in life before they can comfortably owning this expensive vehicle.

    Some people think the car is expensive because they have to pay 2-3 thousands of monthly installment for a car cost more than 200-300k. I think this is a wrong mindset to start with in buying and owning a big ticket item. One should only buy such item when he can fully afford it, not borrow money to afford it.

    This is the right mindset of car ownership.

    There is different stages in life and there are big diversities in people's need and affordability. Choose what you can afford at that stage of your life, why bitch about something beyond your reach.. ?

    Moan about things are expensive won't change anything, the best is to camouflage one's inferiority complex when he can't afford things that others can..

    Right now the best deals seem to be in EEVs (Energy Efficient Vehicles).

    Of course not forgetting the end of the year bonanzas. But don't forget you lose a year of depreciation almost immediately. Win some. lose some.

    Obviously, you sneaked back again
    We cannot understand your preoccupation with bslee.
    There is absolutely no reason to label him as it is highlighted above just because he used to state his thrifty preferences.
    This preoccupation and trolling got to stop
