What I notice when i go Merc/BMW/Audi showrroms is that their price on price list is so high but actually there is huge discounts almost all the time. For merc is often in the form of overtrade. So I thought I would share some discounts that I know.

 

Of coz it is updated all the time so maybe the bros here can share what you have heard so it is easier for ppl to have an idea before heading down to the show room. I shall start first:

 

CLA: 173,888, 8k overtrade and 3k service credit

520i business: 242,800, 10k overtrade

E-class and S-class got 10k COE discount or high COE rebate at 76k

VW Jetta: 118,800

Other than discounts sometimes you can bargain for coe package upgrade. Nowadays some ADs have diff prices for non guaranteed or x bids guranteed pkg.
When I bought a sylphy recently, the SE offered the 6 bids non guranteed price and bump me to 6 bids guranteed. A few days later when I was ready to commit, I propose to bump me to 2 bids guranteed and I will sign on the spot. I wanted the car quick cos hate waiting when I commited Liao. SE agreed and I got my coe within 1 bid. Car was ready stock of cos.

SE told me they anticipate cat A will drop $10k in near future, that is why they only commit 12 units for S60 D2 at this promo price. true or not, I just take it with a pinch of salt.

This is nothing new lah. Let you have an idea of the whole picture is like.... It worked well back in the past with the 30%downpayment & 70% loan but now is either 40%/60% or 50%/50%. Read on...

 

http://transport.asi...yments?page=0,0

Christopher Tan | The Straits Times | Monday, Aug 19, 2013
 

SINGAPORE - The "overtrade" is back.

The practice - in which motor firms offer substantially higher trade-in rates for used cars than market prices - was rampant in the 1990s when the Government first curbed car loans.

Now, as before, the overtrade is designed to help car buyers offset the high downpayment they have to make after new loan restrictions were introduced six months ago.

It works like this: A buyer of a new $100,000 car will have to fork out at least $40,000 for downpayment.

In the "overtrade" plan, the seller adjusts the car price to $110,000. But it also offers the buyer $10,000 more than what his trade-in car is worth.

The downpayment for the new car may now be $44,000, but the buyer already has an extra $10,000 cash in hand. So effectively, he only has to come up with $34,000 more.

Overtrades currently range from a few thousand dollars to $50,000, with Mercedes-Benz and BMW models among those attracting the highest rates.

Toyota agent Borneo Motors is offering a $16,000 overtrade for its Camry, and $8,000 for the Corolla.

 

 

Cycle & Carriage offers overtrades of up to $10,000 for its range of Citroen and Kia models. The firm is also offering an overtrade of $22,000 for its Mercedes-Benz E-class, one of its most popular models.

BMW agent Performance Motors is said to be offering the highest overtrades in town now.

Besides helping customers with downpayments, overtrades can also mask sizeable discounts which could upset customers who had purchased at higher prices not long ago.

For instance, a recent promotion brought the price of the popular BMW 520i down to around $216,000, from a list price of $247,800.

This was believed to include a $30,000 overtrade, introduced to clear stock for the arrival of the facelifted 5-series, which starts from $257,800.

In the 1990s, motor firms were largely able to overcome the government-stipulated 30 per cent downpayment with overtrade.

But with the latest measures restricting loans to no more than 60 per cent of the car's purchase price - it is 50 per cent for higher-end models - observers said overtrades may not be as effective as they were in the past.

To fully offset the hefty downpayment, "the selling price will have to be inflated to a ridiculous level", a trader said. "And the banks will not approve loans for such inflated prices."

 

 

 

Now you know, in actual fact they make you pay more dan you should. Take up more loan and pay more interest. What for?

It is possible to negotiate an over trade without a corresponding increase in car loan, which is essentially a direct discount to the car price.

Not applicable to those who do not have enough cash for 40% or more down payment though

What happens if there is no car to trade in? Totally no discount?
