i think the mechanical/build quality and service of the cars we have owned have always been better with jap cars.. even if the Bora has a better looking interior with the materials etc... it squeaks, has broken down a fair few times, and not as mechanically sound as the Civic or Mazda3 we have...
Be sure to post part 2! Those machines are ace, and the rasp from the exhaust is awesome as well.
FYI, speaking of Jap cars, the Honda bods have a love to hate relationship for VW's with TDI badges (with red letters), and the Civic Type R drivers truly believe they are kings of the road as their cars handle quite well (ie better than a golf).
Having been a follower of www.hondarevolutions.com when I had my 2 Hondas, it is funny to step back and look at how followers of certain makes say/do things to back up their choice. The Scoobynet guys were the same with Cossies and Evos!
By the way PJ52GLY, I have had three Jap Mobiles, including a 2 Civic VTi's and a 280 bhp MY99 Scooby and all three were ace. No problems with any of them and I knocked the proverbial out of all three. Cant honestly say the same about the VW I now have!
