Vitz RS Turbo or new Fit RS?

I'll be moving back to hk next month.

Looking to replace my M3 with something else next month when i get back to HK....so i'll need a new daily driver, since the car replacing the M3 wont be used to be driven daily, it will be used for partying and weekend only

so far, i've really like the look of the upcoming Honda Fit RS, which should arrive in HK early october direct from Japan. only problem is that it only have 105HP or something....

i'm also having the choice of getting a Vitz RS Turbo with all JDM options, but i've already owned a NCP91 before. so it doesnt seem too new and fresh, also price wise is not much cheaper then a Civic Type R.

another choice it would be a FD2 Civic Type R which I really love.

new Fit


FD2 Civic Type R

Ditto. The Fit definitely last... it looks like a weird shrunken mini van.

I'd actually go the Type-R first, Vitz then the Fit.

EDIT: Sorry, I was thinking you meant this Type-R, not the one in your post.

HYDE! You're back!?

Get that turbo Vitz man! I mean, I'm biased... but seriously, you didn't say "turbo Fit." You said "turbo Vitz."

Of course, that type R wouldn't be bad either.

that Civic Type R coupe looks a bit odd? the Type R sedan looks so much better than it.

yea... i still love the Vitz so much.... kinda regret selling it last year...especially when i probably had the best looking one on this forum :D

i only put the new Fit in the list is cuz afterall it is a new car. i like trying out new stuff. but then there wont be much aftermarket parts for it until a year or so...

Turbo Vitz would be so fun here in hk, tons of tuners and cheap parts. with the shops here, i can easily have it up to 200HP with some bolt on and computer tuning and actually have a pretty rare car in HK, since JDM Vitz RS itself is not a popular car here. most ppl drive the 1.3L Yaris (official import model)

Type R on the other hand is sweet, but you gotta pay nearly as much as an Evolution or STI for a Civic...

i still have some other contenders up...
R56 Mini Cooper S
BMW 130i 5dr Hatch
V36 Nissan Skyline 370GT (G37 Coupe)

it cost twice as much as the other cars... not to mention insurance and license fee for the 130i and G37 will be quite a bit more compare to the smaller displacement car on top.

the thing with G37, i'll be buying used... since these cars will drop at least 50% in price once its used in hk. but gotta wait until one shows up which is gonna be a year or so at least
