  1. COE rebate at $35K is very low. Plus they indicated that "6 bids guaranteed capped at $50K" and they have refunded you the deposit. If you were to get a lawyer to fight for you, the judge may rule that you are wasting his time + greedy and rule against you. Technically speaking, based on what you stated about the agreement, was there anything on the agreement that they MUST give you the car when COE is < $50K? If your agreement is 3 bids guaranteed, then it would be their fault. But like somebody mentioned here, you got your deposit, which is very good liao. Now just wait for COE to correct lor. For COE, it is like stock market, it cannot keep going up indefinitely and vice versa. The easing of the loan only make sense if car price remains the same. Now that car price shot up + increase in interest rate, it basically dampened the "effect" of the loan easing. If COE were to drops further, who knows MAS will change the rules again to 20%/30% for downpayment instead just to stabilise it.
  2. Actually, last week Borneo Motors SE just ask many of their customers who book Toyota Wish at $104K (non guranteed) to top up another $4K for g'teed COE or go for another 6 bids. If you did go down to Borneo Motors before, the sales people will tell you "Just go for the non-guaranteed package can liao." For them, it was once you sign with them, you'll sure get your car. But now, no more. They also ask customers to top up. Those of you that don't believe and want to verify, I got 3 person that I know who 2 of them just to up $4K with Borneo Motors and 1 of them decided to wait.

    Well, if you are those that eat supper, so it's just a matter of where. Back then Bishan driving range, big space and free parking. Plus sell quite alot of food and can drink beer. It is also attributed to bunch of "old bird" of MCF who are no longer active here.

    There was a period that it was and then dropped to about 20+. Then I stopped going liao. So don't know what happened after that. We met at the Bishan driving range every Friday from about 10pm onwards. Meet there to eat supper, drink beer & TCSS. Sometimes, you'll see people popping the engine cover and doing some stuffs on their car etc. Back in 2002, we even have outing at East Coast.

    Yes. Agree with you. Nowadays, market is very volatile. Just look at Nokia. Where are they today? If anybody expects to do the same thing over and over again and continue, better think again. Converting one's interest / hobby into some small business is a good idea. But most people are lazy, so all think, think, think and never put to action. Keep your expenditure low, invest wisely and have an attitude to always learn new thing should go a long way.

    I do agree that having "trusted" renter will be the best. Even better if the trusted renter is living in the vicinity. Guess the govt is trying to protect the car rental business also. I means if they allow car owners to rent out their car 24x7, then those car rental business owners will surely make noise right? Another things is that the aim for such services is to help owners defray the cost of car ownership and to provide those that need a car for selected times only. If you really want to drive performance cars or even super cars and get paid, go work as a valet at night will do. LOL!!

    Thanks for your reply. Point 1 & 2 is answered. As for point 3, quote "Yes, the owner will be compensated by the renter if his car is impounded by the police." Am I right to say that the recovery of the compensation from the renter will purely be at the cost and fully responsible by the car owner? Eg. Somebody rented the car, drove to JB. When he drove back, drugs was found in the car. Police detained the renter and impounded the car. Police says that they cannot return the car due to ongoing investigation. So the car owner rented a car then. 3 months later, the police return the car back to the owner. The renter was sentenced to 5yrs jail. For a case like this, the car owner will have to foot the rental car cost then wait for the renter to be release from jail then try to recover the $$? And if the renter ignore, it'll be at the car owner's cost to pursue with legal actions, etc?

    Thank you for your clarification. 1. Glad to hear that replacement car is provided but is it on the ground that no matter who is at fault for the accident? 2. If the car needs 3 days for repair, would the owner of the car get free replacement car for usage? 3. Yes. The car is not allowed into JB but if the renter still drive the car pass the Causeway, what can be done to stop them? When a car is being seized under investigation for criminal offence, they may compound the car for purpose of evidence collection or even classify the vehicle as evidence. So if let's say a renter were to rent a car, drove it to JB and then came back with drugs and got caught. Let say the car get compounded by the CNB for 3 months, would the owner be compensated in anyway? Having said that, of course the chances of the above happening is really remote but if it does, just would like to know what is the extend of the inconvenience and loss a car owner may face if it does.

    Yes. My bad, you are right. http://www.essosmiles.com.sg/aboutsmiles_redeem_smiles.aspx It's 1litre pumped = 1 point So $30 petrol out of 750 litre petrol pumped is about $1,500 & that is about 2%. Citibank credit card discount 14.5% + Cashback on Dividend MasterCard 5% + 2% (Smile Points redemption) it'll be about ~21.5% discount. Any other petrol station + credit card combination gives better than this?

    I guess, if you are renting the car, if the price is good, should be ok. But I'll definitely not rent out my car.
