We shall wait and see really can spot 1 Facelift or not. 

I checked with my PI, he told me he called Vicom, whole Singapore no report yet. Either the post is fake or customer paid additional 10k for the car.
I think should be easy to find out...just ask them whether got stock or not. If they claim don't have or just sold off 1, you will know real or fake.
If it is fake, show how unethical the dealer is.

I don't think the post is fake. This can easily backfire and ruin their reputation since it is on public domain. 

Anyway, there bound to have first approved FL Shuttle out eventually. It is just from which PI. Made no difference to me whether my shuttle was 1st to get approved or 50th to get approved as long as it meets the agreed delivery date.

Can see there is IU unit on the windscreen which means this car is registered. Sometime is best to beilieve PI's words 50%, some may cook up with alot excuse just to buy more time to fatten their profit.

Very observant. Think you are right.

Honda Shuttle is getting very popular.  I see many running on the road now.

The face-lift still has not corrected the following major flaws:

1. Rear boot cover acts as bumper, resulting in crushed bumper when reversing a little too much.

2. Lack of auto central lock at driver's side.

3. Anti corrosion coating that doubles as sound proofing on under-carriage and wheel hubs.

IU unit is only installed after vehicle is registered because the IU serial no. is tagged with the number plate & only inspection centres are allowed to issue & do this process.

If not everyone can just buy 1 blank IU unit & chiong ERP gantries without paying like nobody business liao.

Just cannot stand those PIs smoke you guys with all those excuses. Most likely someone in there are inexperienced & trying to squeeze your new cars for the ves rebate by running the treadmill over & over again hence delaying the registeration.

What to do? We are all under the mercy of them. Govt created this VES banding to benefit them, not us. They will just use this ves to earn more.

There is a process to follow and its not as straight forward unfortunately. I'm sure they too want to get the car over to the customer as soon as possible

They don't benefit. Example are diesel cars which incur a surcharge, so customers are put off by the higher prices cos of the surcharge and the dealers as a result don't bring in such cars

If there is a delay in delivery, the PI's cash will be stuck at the shipment and custom.

They are actually more worried than the car buyers.

I think the custom clearance is quite stringent in view of recent cases of OMV cheating cases and the new VES rebates/levies.

maybe your PI is just slow, no point slamming other dealers who can deliver faster. pretty sure wheelers auto aint exactly one of the cheaper PIs around either.

I heard PI can use a 0.92 coefficient to calculate the CO2 as new car yet to run in so CO2 emission is higher but they have to send for testing every batch.
Because for Petrol cars, normally it is the CO2 that fail.
Wonder if it is still valid now with the new VES ruling?

Just check LTA website, Honda Shuttle 1.5 Petrol is classified under VES Band C1 - with penalty of 10k.
