    Good and Bad Number Plates

    Supposed to be very good. In HDB car park here, there are two 2228 with different series - one Benz and one Mini. I never saw owners personally but I assume they are a couple as the two cars often parked together.

    Down payment - interbank transfer?

    Just to draw a conclusion to this topic :) I already got my car, everything's good. Thanks all for the advice, and I agree with you that cheque/cashier's order is better/safer option, especially when dealing with someone you don't have 100%% trust.

    I believe the price is largely inflated for to the 2digit E/S prefix

    Down payment - interbank transfer?

    Thanks, maybe I should have put myself more clearly in first place. I have already made a $10k deposit with my credit card and that is the maximum amount allowed. I subsequently made another XXk for the balance payment, via IB transfer. It is so far so good as I already got my final sales agreement with the official receipt number for both 10K and xxK payment. I think it is considered as mostly safe when you are dealing with AD. Not sure about PI though. Anyway, thank you for the advice. And thanks to all.

    What happened to Chevrolet? Extinct?

    Not really - I am relatively big size and always drive with my head close to the roof. Still, can't see it.

    What happened to Chevrolet? Extinct?

    My SE told me they will be back later this year, probably around June/July-2018. I just traded in my Cruze 1.4T made in Korea. It's a reliable car, never caused any issue for me during 4 full years. It is a bit heavy and I often got squeezed by other cars, still I like it quite a lot. And FC is about 8L/100KM - pretty good for such a heavy machine. The biggest problem, is the extremely low position of driver's seat - you basically can't see any front part of your car and have to rely on "sense of space" when making a turn. And the gear box technology is a bit outdated and car sometimes jerked a bit when it shifted gears.

    Down payment - interbank transfer?

    This was exactly what I worried about yesterday. But I eventually decided to go with IB before I personally going down to sign the final Sales Agreement. It appeared to go well right now. It is more about trust of your sales person I think.

    Down payment - interbank transfer?

    Thanks for the answer!
  12. Hi guys, I am getting a car from a local AD, and I am about to make the payment tomorrow. I was told that I could do an inter-bank transfer instead of cheque/cashier's order, is this a standard practice? Just want to avoid any possible traps. Thanks, 00

    1.4 CRUZE TURBO

    I test-drove 3,4 models only. Vios, Elantra and Cruze(1.6 and 1.4T) Vios is too small for me obviously. Elantra is a good one, but I simply can't appreciate its external appearance. For Cruze 1.6, I think a lot of guys here already mentioned that it is a little bit laggy and 1.4T provided a much better experience. Price wise, I just pay what they offer in the standard package, with some free gift which is not worth a lot. By the way, the price listed in sgcarmart is not the real price. As now undre Cat B, i think the price will go up a little bit.

    1.4 CRUZE TURBO

    Well, I just got my Cruze 1.4T right before CNY and can't comment much since this is my first car. Anyway, the car is 100% from Korea with Kerb Weight 1440kg. 200KM so far and 7.2L/100km on FC. But as 80% on the express way i expect the combined FC to be in the range of 8-9. Power wise, so far no problem for my family of 4. The best thing is that this car is quite spacious, suitable for big-size person like me.
