Hi all,

 

Driving home from office and saw this BMW infront of me. It's an interesting car....

 

Looks like an model but still well taken care off.

 

Follow a few distance until the vehicle turn in to Bedok Court Condominium.

 

Drive looks like an old man.

It's even more interesting that you chose to put the photos in a spreadsheet when you can upload the photos directly.

 

Haha

Saw this 520 several times around Pandan / Teban area, probably the owner stay there? BTW, if I am not wrong, it is still first hand after close to 30 years.

This car owner paid $65k to renew his car until 2023, by then his car already 38 year old!

65K is peanuts comparing to buying a new car.

 

And I'm sure this car has a significant meaning to the owner, so it's worth every penny.

SBB ... plate is registered in 1985. 30 years old VRN.

 

I remember becos my first car has the same VRN ... quite nice plate as well SBB5252 .... it was too difficult to keep the plate in the old days as I cannot afford a new car then.

Last time if you retain car number, can only registered to a new car. So indeed quite difficult to keep, but last time new car also not say very expensive lah. Lol.

 

Anyway, you have killed a nice car plate number! I like SBB this combination. Last time when i want buy used car, came across this car with a SBC car plate, but in the end didn't buy cause the car was manual! Now quite regretted missed such an old VRN!

When you were on your first job .... even 45k was a big amount.

 

Went to Champion Motor then to look at the Suzuki Swift Notchback ... but they did not want to take in my car. Otherwise I would have keep the VRN ...since ... my VRNs were ... SBF,SBN,SCF,SCN,SFS,SJJ ... got lucky with the SJJ plate and did the number retention since.

The longer you keep the VRN, the more unique it becomes, regardless the number nice or not. Sometimes I saw those very old VRN, but number not say very nice but due to the super old VRN, the plate still stand out.

Classic car scheme will make the car spoil very fast.

I know... must ration the 28 days properly lor. Once every 2 weeks.

 

Or just drive to Malaysia and avoid everything :D probably won't even attract attention up there because there're still many E28s running around.
