    Honest Used Car dealers! COME IN!

    hi kiddywee, what's sort of price my rx300 body can fetch now since you mention that such cars are in demand in russia? so you are saying that 1-2 years won't make much of a difference to its body? and that's true, means I will lose about $7k for close to 2 years of driving, means only $3.5kpa??? $3.5kpa depreciation for a parf 3L car( if it's true) is incredible in todays crazy market. for coe of 80k now, then why don't people do the same and buy cars of similar type and enjoy such incredibly low depreciation? could you kindly clarify this point? thanks so much.

    hi kiddywee, thanks for the reply. yes, it is with the paranomic roof. colour is silver. but since you mentioned that resale to local market is not likely, so means export more likely. if that being the case, it should not matter where is it serviced rite? do car buyers at the other countries ask to check servicing records? my thinking is that the price of the body will drop with time, especially if it is around 1.5years we are talking about. but if from your experience, it remains about the same, then it should make sense to drive till the end of the car life. paper now is about 34.5k. drive to end is about 27.5k. so nearly 2 years lose only 7K....it sound too good to be true.... correct me if i made any mistakes in my thinking.

    hi kiddywee, thanks for that reply. it does sound reasonable. my current ride is a oct 2004 rx300 bmr mark levinson omv 49.5k model mileage 75k. no loans. last serviced at borneo at 65K. do u suggest i use till end of coe life or change close to its 9th birthday. would it make much of a difference to its body value? does it matter if i continue to service at borneo now or go to outside workshop? since if do sell at by its 9th year, if dealer wants to resell it, then the borneo records becomes very important to counter the buyer's question on mileage adjustment. if i do change car next year, i intend to get a 2006 ls460. since by oct 2013, the new ls460 would be out and hence the 2006 ls460 car would be left with 3 years of use and its price would be closer to paper plus body value, since it is considered old model already. thanks kiddywee.

    hi kiddywee, correct me if i am wrong. the closer to 10years, the price of the car will be nearest to paper plus body value. thus the real value buys are actually those 8-9year old car, 1 owner, fully agent serviced ones, cos price can't mark up much anyway. but the catch is that buyer must be cash rich since car left 1-2yrs, unlikely to loan much if any.
