Happy Chinese New year. How's your Chinese New year? I will post how I went thru my Chinese New year on the 15th day of Chinese New Year. ANyway, I'd like to share my realistic dream garage as at 2008. (Note will add some of the missing photos of my dream cars in 3 days time).

1) BMW 528i Touring E39 (A) Used 1997 to 2000. Why E39? Cause it's better looking, better ride and handling than the latest E60, Creamy Straight 6, Also, no un-user friendly IDRIVE, RARE in Malaysia = Exclusive.

2) VW Golf GTI DSG Wald Edition (recond 2005). Why? State of the art FSI Turbo and DSG Gearbox.

3) Porsche 993 Carrera 4s. (used) Why? Last of Air-cooled 911s.

4) Mazda Miata MX5 1.8i (used). Why? Award winning roadster. RWD = Potential Drift car. manual (?)

13) Mazda RX8. Why? Want to experience Rotary Engine, groundbreaking design.
