  1. Man pays for half of $84,000 car with cryptocurrency ethereum In a first-of-its kind transaction in Singapore yesterday, business development manager David Lau used cryptocurrency to pay for half of the cost of a new car. The 27-year-old bought a Honda Vezel for $84,000, using $10,000 worth of ethereum - a cryptocurrency he has been investing in for about two years - to pay the deposit for the crossover car. He will be paying another $32,000 worth of ethereum in the next three weeks, and financing the remaining $42,000 with a bank loan. Cryptocurrency is a digital currency that
  2. I'm getting my first car, due to family needs. What are the pros and cons of a new car vs used car? and should i take into account the current COE prices?
  3. Source: https://uk.motor1.com/photo/5843242/bmw-m3-compact-e36/ BMW has a really large portfolio, which includes models that suit different needs – be it sports cars, family SUVs, or luxury saloon. With constant hardware and software upgrades, the automaker always keeps its range fresh and competitive, which basically means there’s always a good new BMW you can buy, as long as you are ready to pay the price for it. But it turns out, the company doesn’t want you to buy a new car at any cost – that’s just not very good for the environment. This surely sounds surprising at a glance but
  4. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/car-dealers-in-ubi-motor-belt-seek-extension-to-expiring-leases Leases for several car showrooms in the Kampong Ubi "motor belt" will be expiring from next year, and companies are scrambling for extensions. Among the half a dozen or so soon-to-expire leases is one held by Automobile Megamart, which operates an eight-storey complex housing more than 100 new car companies, used car dealerships and parallel importers. Its 30-year lease runs out in 2026, and stakeholders have set in motion an appeal for an extension. Another affe
  5. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/should-i-get-a-new-car-or-revalidate-the-coe-on-my-existing-one Saw this title but I have no subscriptions to read the article. It is interesting to revisit this topic now that COE prices is at 10 year high. If one has a lots of spare cash, then this discussion is irrelevant, please skip and go straight to sgcarmrt new car section.😄 I will stick to two distinctive categories, that is buying a new car vs renewing COE, the comparison will purely base on economy sense, not taking into considerations about new leather smell,
  6. Took me quite some time to piece all the information together for this thread, which I have wanted to start a few months back. No right or wrong here, just some personal opinions on why I think the AD plays an important role in determining the resale value of the model sold by them. Feel free to share your thoughts (a forum is meant for members to engage in meaningful discussion, isn't it?) Many ADs has been playing hard to maintain the sales price of new car sold by them, citing reasons such as protecting customer's interest (by not having an unusually wide price fluctuation from month t

  9. Never used them b4 leh. Anyone bought or sold a car via Carro for it to be so successful? -----‐------------------------------------------------ Singapore-based automotive marketplace Carro says raises US$360 million to become unicorn https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/business/singapore-automotive-marketplace-carro-us-360-million-unicorn-15016274
  10. Hi, I would like to seek advice on whether to buy a new car before or after the new VES rebate in January. Given that the A2 has an additional $5k rebate in January 2021, say the car is selling at $100k after January vs 102k for now, which is a better deal? (if not 2k difference, what is the margin for it to be still worth the earlier purchase) I was told by the sale agent that the increased rebate will only have effect if you are planning to sell it after 9-10 years. Otherwise, whether or not the arf decrease by 5k has no significance as selling car/trade-in goes by "market val
  11. Seeking suggestions on how to make a 12-year car looks like maybe a 1 or 2-year car. Not too expensive please.
  12. Found a 3cm long deep scratch on the rear door of my new car today, it was horizontal, and almost certainly made deliberately by a sharp object such as a key with alot of force in order to leave a deep indentation. One of the hazards of parking a new car in a public carpark I guess! Unfortunately because my in-car cameras are only front and rear facing, they would not have been able to capture the vandal at his act. Just wondering if anyone has any idea of how some camera system can somehow be installed so as to cover the sides of the vehicle when parked? Am fearful that the vandal may st
  13. From being able to get behind the wheel of your dream car as soon as possible to enjoying a worry-free motoring experience, there are many reasons why you might opt to lease a car. We look at the benefits it can bring you! If you want to drive a car but don't want the hassle and uncertainty associated with ownership, leasing could be just the thing for you. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider leasing your next car! 1. Get in your dream car faster with zero downpayment For a start, you will be able to bring that dream car to your doorstep sooner than y
  14. There's no denying that cars are expensive in Singapore - you'll often find Singapore atop lists on the most expensive places to own a car in the world. So, when it comes to buying a car, price is a key factor. There's no doubt that everyone loves a bargain. Being able to save even a small amount can go a long way to making you feel a little bit better about your purchase. However, when it comes to buying a car, there's a lot more that goes into the decision than simply a race to the bottom, price-wise. Cheaper isn't necessarily better. Beyond the price tag, here are four additional
  15. Sometimes, size does matter. When it comes to a new car showroom (or any kind of shop), size is undoubtedly important - more space means more choices for the customer. At over 100,000 sqft, the brand new Cars & Coffee Singapore Megastore is the largest new car showroom in Singapore, and it is truly larger than life. Occupying half of the sixth floor of the Carros Centre, the new Cars & Coffee Megastore is one stop location for all your car buying needs. Here are five things that make the new Cars & Coffee Singapore Megastore a one-of-a-kind shopping experien
  16. Hi Guys, What rituals you have for collecting new car? e.g. some people roll a pineapple for new home.
  17. Hi Guys, What are the things to look for when collecting new car? What are your practices? Do you have a checklist? What are the things you pay particular attention to? And lastly what's the mileage expected on your brand new car upon collection?
  18. Hi, I need a simple car for 6mths to 1 yr. Should I get a new or old one? Was searching sgcarmart and the available used cars between 8 to 9+ years cars have depreciation values of around $7000+ to $8000. But newer used cars 5-6yrs are only $6000+. And new cars like Perodua or Attrage also not much difference. Seems like not worth to get a 8 to 9+ years cars, may have other problems too. Good thing is use and scrap. So should I just get new car? And sell after half to one year? Wonder if the loan penalty will be high, or price will depreciate alot ... Thanks!
  19. First time car buyer here. Planning to sign for my first car soon. Will be buying a new car at an AD. Any brothers/sisters here can advice on what to take note of when signing for the car?

This is sure to make those SE's accompanying the new owners to have a real hard time New_Car_Checklist.doc New_Car_Checklist.pdf
  22. Hi all Would like to check on something. While i understand that if the coe is not obtained, there would be a delay in getting the car. However, if the downpayment has been made and that the COE has been obtained, why does the AD now tell me that they have no stock on hand to deliver based on the agreed timeline of delivery? Wondering if anyone has experienced this and to what effect can this be resolved? thanks!!
  23. So now, you have put your precious money into buying that dream car and the day that it arrives in Singapore has come! It lands in our port, someone picks it up and it gets transported to our showrooms for collection. Have you ever wondered about the fuel that goes into the car? Does it come empty? How much fuel goes into it? What kind of fuel goes into it? Well here is the story of two companies who choose a quaint little station in the West Coast to top up the fuel for their new arrivals. Both Honda and Toyota use a small Shell station down South, close to the Pasir Panjang
  24. This is really trivial. Have been puzzled by this mismatch in year of production record in logcard and label in the car. The B180 was registered in Dec/2015, but the metal plate label at the driver door indicated MY2016. Logcard record is put at 2015. I know must follow the detail in the logcard, just curious why it was put as MY2016 in the car. Any one knows why the discrepancy? Hope I am not wasting bandwidth here haha.
