Parallel imported cars has been in the Singapore automotive market for decades. They offer car buyers alternative choices other than those selling in authorised dealers, bringing car models that authorised dealers don't bring in, and provide cheaper choice of almost similar models sold by authorised dealers. Although in the recent years, there have been some unscrupulous PI dealers practicing unethical practices of business, however, this only represnts the minority and parallel imported cars still remain a favourite choice for Singaporeans. PI market still consist mainly of JDM models although continental cars forms a fraction of the sales as well.

I remember in the Early to Mid 90's P.I. Mercedes Benz W124,E220 is well Equiped [:)] ,better than what C&C selling at that time,Equipments inc Memory Seats,Sunroof,Headlight Wash/Wipe,cruise Control,keyless entry & climate control,& the price is less than C&C E200. [thumbsdown] .[at that time U.K. don't sell E200]..Even the last version "Masterpiece" cannot match their Equipment.
