COE Bidding – 2nd Round of February 2019

Recommended Posts

March PQP is $33k, not $31.5k

 

Darn that's enough for road tax and insurance. COE keeps hurting.

So I'll be renewing my COE next month and here's my calculation when I renew:

 

PQP: $31.5K

Loss of PARF: $14K

Additional Road Tax over 10 years: $5.6K

Total: $51.2K.

 

I didn't include maintenance though, which doesn't matter to me because I like to maintain my car well and would have spent as much on a new car over 10 years.

 

So compared to buying a new car which is $100K+, and there isn't one there with similar performance/value that I like, it becomes an easy decision to me.

 

Not cheapo la, it's a big purchase so it's good to do some math before deciding.

At least your parf not too bad, my part will be 27k plus 3k body, about 30k write off when renew. But this write off is irrelevant of timing.

PARF of 14k means it not a simple B&B car. So can renew,

If like you said, the equivalent is more than 100k

"$30K" ouch :) Our government is so good at making car ownership so complicated for us. We all have become math geniuses as a result.

Haha, yes of course. Hope it is a semi reliable car. Troubleshooting can get to you after a while. With $$ there is nothing that can’t be fixed. However it’s the down time that gets to me after a while. My old laopok is 17years old.

Thanks for Sharing this way of calculating. I am basing on the calculation when I buy my used car with a linear depre of about 14k/year, so if I will to renew it now, I will lose that depre(my own paper value) of about 10k between now to Dec.

Put it the other way round, if COE will to go up by 10k by then, I still will be at best break even, wont lose anything, plus 10 more months of driving vs if I will to renew it now.

Boh bian lah, want to be cheapo, must calculate until so jialat. i thought my logic is reasonable, hope to hear more views.

Many dun understand la....just lose coe value for 10 mths....only $900 LOL. Shallow thinking

Put it this way lah, whatever you have paid for the current car is already sunken money. But what you are going to pay for renewal is your future money. If I can save $10k in my renewal cost, this real saving to me. The lost of 8 months ownership if compared to 10 yr COE is nothing la.

Hi, wat if u renewed now ( claiming save $10k renewal coe cost )and U lost 8 months of ownership den 8 months later COE remain same ( hopefully ) touch wood dun drop $10k more! So will still be nothing?!?! LOLLOLOLOLO

If renew COE earlier,it is not only loss the portion of unused COE.

NO LA, renew earlier just lost coe. $900 only! All pls go renew now !!!! Bcos many People said so leh....all the kiang tu ho still ai geh kiang said so, LOL

Wat coe cat car ?? Rise $10k .....hmmmmmm not easy bro

March PQP is $33k, not $31.5k

March 2019 PQP is same as sept 2018 PQP which was also 33. In between is 31-32 ++++ for Cat B big car. Lowest is Jan 2019 $31335, feb is 31933 I think

Wait till Dec - max Cat B can climb to in Dec 2019 is $40K.

 

World economic outlook is not rosy.

Can sustain???? Who knows climb a while drop again LOL.....

I have seen quite a few cars, the KIA stonic was one of them. But in terms of value for money and flexiblity, i felt Skoda was able to offer more bang for the buck.

 

Plus i managed to nego for the full benefits despite me going for my own loan

for CAT B car,if renew COE now VS 6 month late, the $ wise calculation as following:

Renew earlier: pay $33000 now and drive another 10 years.

Renew 6 month late: pay PQP 6 month late, and you could get $330 interest. and get 6 month more car ownership after 9.5 years compared with renew now scenario.ant it at least worth 5% of late renew COE(un used portion) or future market value which ever is higher.

The new 10-year COE will still start from the date of expiry.  Hence, there is no benefit in delaying the renewal.

If the decision is so straight forward, the question wont even be raised in the first place. It seems like you also cant offer alternative other than criticising others. Better talk less.
