    Trade-in for buying new car

    Its normal. There's no dealer I know that packages the insurance into the on-the-road price. Anyway, car insurance premiums are really cheap now. Assuming you have more than 10 yrs exp, 50% NCD, probably will be around $1k.

    Depends on what you value. Some go to a stall for its chicken, some for its rice. I know some who go just for the chilli.

  5. http://www.straitstimes.com/business/companies-markets/china-police-bust-massive-s108b-ponzi-scheme-with-over-900000-investors China police bust massive S$10.8b Ponzi scheme with over 900,000 investors SHANGHAI - Authorities in China have busted what may well be the country's biggest illegal fund-raising case in terms of money and the number of investors, according to media reports on Monday (Feb 1). Police arrested 21 people involved in the operation of peer-to-peer (P2P) lender Ezubao, the official Xinhua news agency said on Monday, over an online scam it said took in some 50 billion yuan (S$10.8 billion) from about 900,000 mainland investors. Ezubao was a Ponzi scheme, the Xinhua report said, and more than 95 per cent of the projects on the online financing platform were fake. Among those arrested was the scheme's alleged high-flying mastermind - Ding Ning,chairman of Yucheng Group, which launched Ezubao in July 2014. The suspects are accused of luring in investors with false offers of double-digit annual returns. Mr Ding, 34, financed his lavish lifestyle with money fleeced from investors, the South China Morning Post reported on Monday. It said Ezubao was launched in July 2014 and embarked on a massive advertising campaign to raise funds. On the surface, it was a P2P website with various projects, offering investors annual returns ranging between 9 per cent and 14.6 per cent. But in reality, the website's operators made up most of the projects listed on its website and used funds from new investors to pay old debts, Xinhua reported. Chinese police said they had sealed, frozen and seized the assets of Ezubao and its linked companies. The Ezubao case underscores the risks created by China's fast-growing US$2.6-trillion wealth management product industry, said Reuters. Many products are sold through loosely regulated channels, including online financial investment platforms and privately run exchanges.

    Lexus Owners (To share driving experience and advise)

    Bro, this is common for Lexus GS300. I'm driving the same. The strip you referring to on the roof of both sides of your car are actually aluminium strips with a layer of sticker on it. My car is silver. So I peeled of the sticker and it still looks nice. Aluminium on silver. But have some glue residue, need to use nail polish remover or kerosene to rub off.
  7. I tested this Caltex fuel additive. Did not really follow the recommended mix ratio. Just dumped everything in when pumping full tank on my GS300. Any surprisingly, I could feel the effect immediately. I could feel my gear changes got smoother (my car 9 yrs old liao). And there was a power surge that kicked in linearly esp during highway cruising. Feeling I got was like though I just serviced my car. I don't care about all the engine cleaning effects and stuff, cos I cant see that. But my butt dynamo gives this a thumbs up! Those who got the bottles should go try.

    NiBK BBK & Parts & Service vouchers giveaway

    Bro, you actually said it out?! Like that if you win, obviously organisers are kelong.
  9. The winner wrote about the Mazda 3. And so I went in to do some reading on the consumer reviews there. Quite insightful some of the reviews. Cos got more than 30 reviews, and can tell that some really love the car while many others simply trash it. Alot more useful hearing from fellow consumers than the magazine reviews which are always positive positive positive.

    New 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class breaks cover

    Only the S Class owners will be sad. If you are buying the C or E class, then will be happy. Cos you will get a product that looks just as good, but cost half the price!

    Upcoming Mercedes-Benz E-Class's face leaked

    Waiting excitedly for this. Gonna be unveiled at next month at the Detroit Motor Show. When do you guys think it will reach Singapore shores from the Parallel Importers? C&C says their's will be H2 2016.
  13. Bo tio la bro. They ask for admin fee if the buyer not taking both loan and insurance from them. That's how they earn, which is fair. Nothing to do with the seller's outstanding loan. Logically, they will be happier if you have no outstanding loan. Less work for them.
  14. http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/vehicles-with-illegal-mods-to-undergo-more-frequent-inspections SINGAPORE - From next month (Nov 1), motorists caught with illegally-modified engines or exhaust systems in their vehicles for a second or subsequent time will be subjected to more frequent mandatory vehicle inspections. Under this enhanced inspection regime, second-time offenders will be required to bring their vehicles for mandatory inspections every six months for a period of two years, while third-time or subsequent offenders will need to bring their vehicles for mandatory inspections every three months for a period of two years. This represents a more stringent inspection regime as compared to that for normal vehicles, which are typically inspected once every one or two years, depending on their age and type. "Any owner who does not comply with the inspection regime is guilty of an offence and can be fined up to $1,000 or jailed for up to three months on conviction for the first offence," the Land Transport Authority said in a statement Wednesday (Oct 28). "On conviction for a second or subsequent offence of failing to comply, the maximum penalty will be doubled." This latest move will complement existing penalties to deter motorists from modifying their vehicle engines or exhaust systems illegally. Any person who is convicted of an illegal modification can be fined up to $2,000 or jailed for up to three months, for the first offence. Repeat offenders can be fined up to $5,000 or jailed up to six months. In addition, if a vehicle is found with a tampered engine, it will need to be deregistered and the owner may not be granted scrap rebates. The LTA said illegal modifications can create serious safety and environmental hazards. Once a vehicle's engine or exhaust system is modified without due certification and approval, the existing vehicle components may not be able to handle the increased power or speed. Such modifications may also affect the durability and reliability of a vehicle. Currently, motorists may choose to legally install aftermarket exhaust systems that are certified to be suitable for the specific vehicle make and model. These exhaust systems, which are specifically designed and engineered for a particular vehicle make and model, will have undergone testing either by the vehicle manufacturer or by independent test laboratories, to ensure compliance with internationally recognised standards.
