New generation Outlander launching this year

None of the current Toyota model entice me, except the new Yaris Cross

Can try your luck with X1 at showroom or PPSL, price is much cheaper than listed for sure. How much lower depend on your bargaining power and how hungry is PML / PPSL

B180 is one of the more reasonably priced 3 point star, especially when comparing to the B200

Insignia quite value for money, but practically no resale value since the model is now used by PHV (double whammy)

Go look at Skoda, their Superb is really close to Superb. Whichever model you go for, remember to do your homework and don't be afraid to bargain as long as you are genuine buyer.

Looking at all the care you list, I will pick the Superb.

X1 18 with the 3 cylinder engine, boh luc leh. Driven friend one, the 1.5L not nice . If it is the 2.0L engine will be a lot better. Drive the same engine on the MINI Countryman,  mechanically same car as X1. This is a lot better.

Last I checked a week back, the X1 was only left with one more unit of s20i MSport, going at around $180k after overtrade. Their next batch will only arrive in April/May, of which the sale price will definitely be different.

Hi guys. New car buyer here. I read a lot of comments about Merc, BMW, and Audi ADs marking up their list prices by a lot. What would be the typical % of reasonable profit margin? Seems crazy to list $298k for BMW 530i as an example. 

Also, do you think the room for nego is a lot less for indent units? coz i am looking to add options as well. 

Thank you very much in advance for inputs!

willing seller, willing buyer ... some more you can only take what is available in the showroom or what models and options bring in by AD

if you want to indent special options ... Good Luck 

btw, have you seen Porsche pricing lately? lol

Yeah I am looking to only get the available options, not special indent. Porsche is definitely not in my budget haha. 

Anyway it will be my first purchase, just looking to pay something that is reasonable, and not pay over the odds. 

I am looking at BMW 530i and Audi A6 45 tfsi. But the list prices seem really unreasonable considering their costs.

 For the cars that I was comparing, my observation is the profit margin is about the same as the OMV.

List price and selling price differs a lot in reality.

What is the profit margin of 530i?  50k?

Thanks for the input. If I am to take 530i's OMV ($62k) from LTA, the sell price would be something closer to 280k instead of 300k.

I think Bmw has something called individual series where the paint colour choices are different from the usual pallet of standard colour n the Uphostry n type of stitches also various from the usual option list .

if you are referring to that, then yeah we talking about a different level of refinement. But if it’s like sunroof n stuff.. like Koay Teow Mai hum but paying more for it , then not worth it ..

@bmwvarun It's funny you mentioned this. BMW was the most profitable car company in Singapore for 2020.....
