2007 Volkswagen Golf GTI mk5
Time of purchase: 1st June 2020
Price of vehicle: RM38k
Reason why I bought this car
I needed a car that doesn't depreciate anymore, and perhaps some appreciation. It's a sporty hatchback with great acceleration and handling, can manoeuvre through traffic easily and faster than 90% of the cars on the road Folding the backseat down gives a huge trunk space, more practical than a sedan
Car selection Process
- I have a budget of RM30000
Model(s) that I have considered include: Subaru XV
I simply need a daily driver that is fun, easy to park, and doesn't depreciate anymore. A simple push to the throttle gives a good acceleration. Furthermore, the interior quality doesn't look dated even till today.
I have already done 15000 km.
I have been rebuilding this car. Parts are plenty and easily accessible. No matter how old is it, some of my girl friends can even notice that GTI batch there and know its different. It gives you thrill to hear the turbo and exhaust sound for each step on the throttle. Just makes you want to go faster. The suspension setting is hard. There's barely any rollover even on high speed.
Pros & Cons
- Nimble good handling
- Good European quality build
- Parts easily accessible
- Superb acceleration
- Appreciating vehicle
Needs to be cash rich

Need a daily driver which is fast and easy to manoeuvre around. Furthermore providing decent cargo space. I have driven and owned so many cars, fed up of depreciation. All you can want in a small car, which is perfect for everyday driving. Fun yet practical
