Brand new cars are killing our planet depleting vital resources that we cannot afford.

In that context new cars are too cheap.

:D

Govt should align COE CAT with ARF.

All ARF below 20k is CAT A.

We will see massive under declaring of OMVs.....

? what is your intention? my intention is to lower fluctuations, not reduce the COE price.

Yes, we are looking at different perspectives, but the end results will be be quite similar amd here's why I think so. 

With the current high low cycle (typically high in 2011 - 2013, 2021 to 2023, low in 2006 - 2008, 2016 - 2018, etc.), many owners of car with high COE premium will likely deregistered their ride prematurely when COE premium drop substantially, which will resulted in lesser COE available in the next round of high COE cycle (further worsening the imbalance in quota allocation from year to year). 

On the other hand, iIf COE premium could remain relatively constant (say within $20K+/-), there will be less incentive for those with high COE car to scrap their ride for a new one, then we can relook into the redistribution of quota.

MAS just have to up the restriction on car loan. 50% deposit 50% loan, loan interest rate 5%. Remove the overtrade BS. If coe prices still high, up the deposit % and up the car loan interest rate. If the loan do not get more restricted coe prices will only skyrocket.

Problem isnt coe. It is also about how much loan ppl can take to buy car. Coe and loan structure go hand in hand. No point keep tweaking the coe but ppl still be able to take huge loan to buy car.

Ppl are too short sighted, always focusing on coe. Step back and look at the bigger picture.

I agree. The increases in COE prices are likely fuelled by availability of loans to pay for it. When spread out over a long loan tenure, the impact of high COE prices is greatly diffused. A difference in COE price of $30k can be just a low few hundred dollars monthly. 

By curbing loans, eg. excluding COE from loans, or reducing loan percentage allowed, that should cool the demand. At least that should be the case for mass market cars. The really rich can always afford regardless, can only just thank them for their contribution to nation building.

My policy don’t have to sell all COEs in a Low cycle… that is what the reserve pool is for.  It is to even out the supply fluctuations

Curbing loans everyone not happy - Gahmen less income, banks less business, dealers mark up less, lower income buyers cannot afford to buy that nice new car.

 

Except full cash rich buyers buying at cheap cheap price.

So who in gahmen so stupid would go and do things that make everyone unhappy? And lesser bonus for him/her too due to less tax collected.

ARF is already tiered to tax more on cars with higher OMVs up to 180% I think. 

Tax on tax lor.....nothing our MIW is incapapble of as long as money keeps rolling in... they can call it tariff/rebate/certificate....end of the day it is still taxing the people....and all the money goes into the same pool right?

Yes. This will be implemented when the low cycle comes.

so don’t hope for 30k COE. Gahmen probably is aiming for around 60-80k COE as a stable range

Exactly. That's why in my previous post, i mentioned the govt deliberately turned a blind eye to this.

So people who are not financially sound and yet thinks they really need a car, they can take out a 100% loan and buy a used COE car. I think the installment is just a few hundred bucks per month.

The 100% loan is for registered company and car is for commercial use, it's not for anyone strictly speaking. Also, buyer have to undergo credit check to meet affordability criteria.

I tell you why. They should collect more from the rich and lesser from the average people out there. Why?  because the rich is getting richer and average is not really keeping up, and there are a lot of NEW rich coming in to share the pie. The system is no longer a fair competition system. Some who can afford a Ferrari bid against someone who wants to buy a Toyota? Is this a fair competition game here?  

You are proposing a communist system.  In this world, nothing is fair, from the day one is born.  Asking for fairness is only for losers.

The government is already taxing the rich much much more than the less well off.  Take for instance income tax, the poor doesnt pay any at all, while the high earners pay a lot.  And when come to subsidies and payouts, you know whats the arrangement.

The government's job is to create an environment where people have a fair chance of achieving success through meritocracy, and there are many people who achieves success through it.  But not through being given for free in the name of fair competition, and certainly not for luxury goods.

Don't sell COEs in a Low cycle?

Then how to get 30 - 40k COEs?

Sounds like this policy is to only have

at least $100k COEs or more.

:D

Please don't implement.

I propose fixed bid submission. Each individual is entitled to submit only one bid. Once submitted, no amendment is allowed. Bidding premiums should not be shown live. At most, show only the number of bids received.

This method will create uneven income streams from successful coe bids. Fluctuation is too high…

 

the correct way in theory should still be let market forces decide.. 😑
