    How to have a happy divorce?

    If both parties are having a contentious time together, surely the divorce will be happy. On the sober side if kids are in the mix then it becomes more complex. Best to keep it together for the family

    PHV Bank Loan Help for my Dad!

    Feel for u to trust her. You are going to be disappointed Reality is that the profit margin for your sale may not be in the car but in the interest for the loan Go take a calculator and work out 1% flat a year is how much. If she sells you the car without the higher interest loan then she basically makes almost nothing Don’t shake hands and walk away find someone who is transparent with you. End of the day your dad is going to pay blood sweat and tears to clock those ride miles just to pay for the additional interest
  4. You may want to see if pi can import the car for u with less than 20k omv so that u can have more choices to suite your criteria

    Panic as motorists slapped with fake summons!

    Pissed me off enough to write them off permanently. Am sure many feel the same. What sort of marketing brain is this ?
  7. tips 1) Choose from reputable PIs with nice showrooms , at least you know they are not going to close shop in an instance 2) Buy only from PIs with ready stock 3) Ask the PI to put the chassis number of the car in the invoice and call LTA to check the validity ( If they con you, you can report police as if the chassis number is not as stated its criminal cheating 4) Remember that if price if its too good to be true it probably is, what you have is not a car booking but merely an order with a promise to deliver, we know humans can break their promises and etc and imho not all pis are bad ,buying from reputable PI gives you great value compared to the ADs
  8. Give nea a buzz and ask them to releases the public data to you . Why is it that there is no way to measure pollution in Singapore just because it's an island ? Nea s job is to constantly monitor the pollution of our country With the vw scandal manufacturer specs ???? It's proven that the so called clean diesel tech so far is not really what it is . Anyway I encourage the authorities just like p i cars to do an actual test on emission and see if it complies .
  9. I can tell u that the published specs may be vastly different from the real world tests . The fact that Volkswagen and other manufacturers such as Renault Mercedes all have the defeat devices indicate that diesel tech is a failure and that diesel is dirty after all The real dangers of diesel lie in the nox level , go check with nea a large proportion of our air pollution in sg comes from the diesel pollution from commercial vehicles To add to that for the typical car user diesel is not cheaper , petrol comes with 80 plus cents of tax that's why it costs more . Otherwise diesel is same price as petrol. One can also argue that diesel contains more energy level per liter which is true (around 20 percent ) but at the end of the day for anyone who travels 30k a year and after factoring the road tax and extra maintenance over a 5 year period diesel also won't be cheaper .

    Good driver? You deserve cheaper insurance.

    Can i clarify are you an insurance company or an insurance agency,
  11. I heard a lot about sg vehicles they are blacklisted by case
  12. I think u have to factor in some other things before u get to profits. Volkswagen omvs look low for the kind of cars in its class there are probably some fees somewhere else to negate the low omvs to cover the car basic costs. What about cost of capital to hold stock and cost of storage showroom salesman costs etc I suspect the real profit would be half of what is actually calculated based on basic costs which means prolly 6-8k per car and factoring the warranty and workshop service it seems reasonable especially in Singapore where land costs can be very high I think u have to factor in some other things before u get to profits.

    Is a Hafei Minz or a Wuling Journey better?

    It's not cheap. Cheap to buy expensive to maintain the parts may well cost more than Mercedes ! If u want cheap get a low resale value Japanese mpv like Honda step wagon

    Traditional engines to stay for another 20 years

    Volkswagen is saying so because unlike Toyota they do not have any good hybrid technology and need 20 years to play catch up

    2006 Toyota Prius hybrid battery

    try the prime taxi workshop they have many Priuses should be able to do it at lower cost since they probably import their own batteries
