The rest come down to individual units. Anyhow, these would be K320UA 1148, and MAN SL202 424

So you'd rather ride a K280/CB80 than a L94UA/CB60? I personally quite like the L94UA/CB60, they are an attractive looking bus. Defintiely better than the alternative (K360UA/CB80), even if most of their turntables seem to squeak. :roll:

My least favourites would be:
Scania K---/CB80
Iveco Metro C260/CB80
MAN 11.190/PMC 160
Scania K---/Cb60 Evo II (O-Bahn stuff only, most others of this type are OK)
Scania L94/CB60 (rigid)
First person on 822, 865 (2016 re-route).
Last person on 164, 867, 868.

Those new TransJabodetabek Hino units look like the old Ankai coach that Murray's had/have. I do like the new LaksanaBus/Scania K310IA units that TransJakarta now have.
