    The overtrade can be either use on your existing car or direct discount off the price. Lets say, ur car traded in at $100k, with overtrade $15k = $115k. If there is outstanding loan of eg $60k, u get back $55k cash as down payment for the new car @ $142,888. Top up est $1.7k to make up the shortfall downpayment balance ($142,888*40%). The other case - Ur trade in $100k. Outstanding loan $60k, u get back $40k. However u wish to get a 60% loan based on discounted price $127,888. downpayment (127888*40%) = 51, 555. So in this case, u need to top up est $11k to the shortfall for the downpayment. Really depends on your cash outlay. Whether u want to top up less cash to change car, or whether to top up significantly more (1.7k compared to 11k) to save on bank loan interest.

    I test drove the new mini cooper s 5dr 2.0 few weeks back.. Also a fwd. Somehow its more engaging to drive. However its a driver's ME car. The rest of the passengers will vomit on Sports mode. Go kart feel so boh bian. The power delivery together with the exhaust pops was quite shiok. Stage 1 will be perfect for the 2.0l (same bmw engine) The clubman s which shares ukl2 platform as 2series active tourer/gran tourer was much more comfortable.

    The zc33s got me very interested suddenly. Reminiscing the times i drove the zc31s 12yrs back and had alot of fun with it. GR now priced at 87,800.. Might consider an OPC as a 2nd car to drive with mild mods.

    Many friends driving to Genting said nsh was a bitch to drive because so many sg plate cars hogging and heavy traffic. 90-100km/h Looking at the jam at both customs now, i think they wished they weren't there. Lol Come back sg few days later another shiong shiong queue.

    Audi TTS

    U sure u did correct research bro haha Same as pple who always think bmw "twin power" turbo is twin turbo. TT is 2.0 single turbo 197hp TTs is 2.0 single turbo with uprated tune 268hp TTRS is 2.5L Single turbo 5cyclinders 335hp The DSG in TT (wet 6speed) still considered reliable but will still require maintenance. Change of DSG oil n filter (every 60k km preferred) , change of clutch at 100K. If u buying a renewed COE car, might consider the above. Alot of small little things which will wear n tear (coolant pumps, rubber pipes, engine oil leaks. Your biggest worry should be the dsg mechatronics if ever. Still a fun car nonetheless with mod potentials. 350-400hp on the 2.0L if u want to go extreme The TTrs is a mod monster
