I want to go for either a used C180 or a BMW 3 series instead of a brand new local Honda Civic. Some pals on the forum have told me that if I go for a C180 I will regret it, for all used C180s are full of problems and start giving errors after a few months of use. I respect their opinion but I would also like guys from the C180 fan club to come forward and give their input about the performance of used C180s in Pakistan. I would like to go for a used 2007 C180 or C200 (new shape). I understand that it would be a huge investment for I'll have to put some extra money into my brand new Honda Civic option which costs Rs. 2.5 million.
I have a 1960 Mercedes Benz 190D with me which my dad brought from Germany, it was zero mile and still parked in my garage.
Please tell me about whether I should go for a brand new Honda Civic or a 2007 used C180/C200. Please guide me about which car should I opt for and why. I'm a huge fan of German, American and Japanese cars (JDMs and US models only).
Please give me your input.
