    COE Bidding – 1st Round of May 2018

    Iirc, cars for taxi companies are not required to bid for COE. On the other hand, PHV cars are required to bid for COEs.

    2017 Hyundai i30

    In a way yes, since the scrap value is Low

    I30 omv around $19k After VES rebate of $10k, will take back $4.5k as scrap value
  4. As a guide, need to see what is the depreciation of a new car(of same model) and price it slightly lower to see if you can sell it off. Does not make sense for buyers to look for old car with higher depreciation of a new car.

    I do encounter fogging at rear lights during rainy days. Usually will clear up after 1-2days.

    New car scratched by sickos

    Totally agree! by the end of 10years, car will still be due for scrap. as long as the scratch is not posing any potential rust issue, just let it be. who knows after touching up, maybe another scratch will pop out? *touch wood* Never ending one.

    New car scratched by sickos

    the first scratch is always the hardest to accept. I hv learn to accept the scratches as adding character to my car. One way is to wait for car to pass the 3yr mark and do a respray to clear all the marks once and for all. But by then, all these scratches no bother me anymore.

    Actually, new car paint is really paper thin. One slight brush will also result in scratches.

    Bro, sorry to hear about it. Do you have a dash cam which is quite a standard nowadays? Able to do minor touch up?

    COE Bidding - 1st Round of June 2016

    AD won't bid too aggressively cos it will eat into their margin unless they desperately need to clear stocks.

    COE Bidding - 1st Round of June 2016

    It's very clear that gahment will not allow COE to drop below $40k (barring unforeseen circumstances). They have two tools in place. 1) relaxing of loan rules (1st line of Defense) 2) COE clawback (2nd line of Defense) Low Coe will trigger early scrapping of cars which will result in gahment having to cough out $ back to these owners. Accounting wise, it is very difficult to do budgeting.

    LOL, not again on this reasoning that high COE price = less people can afford new car.

    hi Heman75, Just praised you. Don't bother explaining that high COE prices does not equate to lower car population as some people just don't get it after so many rounds of clarifications.

    New Subaru XV

    i think 20k for your 8yr old Altis is on the low side. 2year old car got demand in the resale market. Suggest you look at what price dealers are selling for a similar aged car like yours to make a gauge.

    2015 Oct, 2nd COE Bidding Exercise

    I think you are one of the rare few who understand that even if COE drop to $1, the supply is still fixed and will not result in more congestion.

    Which Sushi brand and model?

    How about Subaru XV? Drive shld be quite good as it is AWD and fc is reasonably decent and MIJ.

    QQ, Forester or Picasso?

    One consideration is road tax as u r comparing cat a and cat b cars. The price difference can be $600 or more just for road tax. This will equate to $6000 over ten years.

    QQ, Forester or Picasso?

    Go with thw QQ for lowest running cost and FC. Design is nice too!

    Bigger COE supply may also mean bigger demand as ex-owners who de-register their cars will most likely come into the market to look for replacement cars. Actually, COE is a lagging indicator of the stock market. When the stock market correct starts correcting heavily, that is when one can expect the COE to follow few months after. Looking at the stock market performance, it is unlikely we will see drastic softening of the COE prices within the next 3mths.

    Like that means OCS will need to be implemented so as to even out the supply during the famine years.
