test drive drive both cars......and make decision from there, bro. Both cars are good by comparison.

I wouldnt be too worried about spare parts as both car parts can be sourced relatively easy.
If want cheap and easy spares, then go proton or p2. Accesories more than enough to choose from. Can choose until sot-sot..

I don't like the look of the new Mazda 3, it's like a Mazda 6 with the ass chopped in half! But that's just my personal taste. :biggrin:

Mazda 3 drives like a charm and the interior is better than all the Japanese cars in its class. Yes you pay a bit more, but there will no regrets.

FB Civic 2.0 without the venerable K series engine like in FD but still selling at the same price or slightly higher than FD Civic? No thanks. Go for Mazda 3 for the sake of better tech.

Toyota is always known to be bullet proof by many. Well, look at those old AE101 and KE70 Corolla. haha :biggrin: You can never go wrong with Toyota even though some of their models are boring. :rofl:
Too many in the market also not nice. Mine all "lang moon" ones. VR, Sonata 3 and Tiggo, hardly see in the market.....hahhahahhaa:rofl:

But you're the car enthusiast guy. "lang moon" car also nevermind because you know the right places to get parts and you understand the technical bits inside them. If ordinary people get these unpopular cars, then perhaps it will be a problem if the car is spoiled or something....

Back to thread topic, Civic or Mazda 3? I'll vote for 3 since like I said, K series engine is not there anymore...

Overpriced as well. Can still sell 40k plus even when AE86 is over 20 years old. Nearing 30 years I think... I think if you want to get a drift car, with that price, can get A31 Cefiro, S13 or S14 Silvia... Budget drift car? No doubt it will be KE70. :biggrin:

Overpriced due to collectors item already now and still got demand. Unlike KE70, no many go crazy over it compare to AE86. Mainly, blame the anime hahaha!

No more K series but still many speed like as though it is still fast wor...no doubt a SOHC engine but still got 155hp.

I know right. So much publicity for AE86. Initial D anime and live action movie. Keiichi Tsuchiya also owns one and appeared several times in Best Motoring.

On stock form, output for both K20Z2 and R20A might be similar. But regarding aftermarket support and tuning potential, surely K series had the advantage over the SOHC R series engine.

Eh, that means they bought all those new from dealers? Impressive since you say those days there are more AE86 than now.
Yup, even my VR shell the Super Saloon is CBU. I am third owner.

Well, I think those days don't have factories for CKD over here mah...

Speaking of Levin & Trueno, even those newer Levin/Trueno like AE92, AE101 are actually selling cheaper than the old AE86. Regarding layout, FR is of course better than FF but those newer ones like AE101 have better engines and equipment than the AE86....

So far hardly see the Coupe AE86 version in Malaysia...mostly hatchbacks..
I've only seen those hatchback types with flip lights and also the ordinary AE80 standard lights type.... And there is once I saw a rather stock looking AE85 driven by an uncle.

Without a doubt Mazda 3. Skyactiv, beautiful interior, nice exterior. Come on, the FB Civic is worst than FD in every single way. Why buy a worst car?

Depends on the person buying. Are you a conservative traditional Chinaman who'll only ever use the car to go from point A to point B? If yes buy the Honda. Resale value better.

If you're a true car enthusiast buy the Mazda.
