  1. I think the more commonly accepted problem of COE if that the price swings too much until it is like lottery as others would say. So what is the solution. I think instead of a bidding system a pricing system by the government is better but than you have to think about how to control the quantity of COE. I don't know much about COEs so I am putting this suggestion up for criticism. 1) create a reserve COE pool of 1% which is 10k out of a million vehicles. 2) Instead of twice a month bidding, COE bidding or sale window (a better name since no more bidding) is increased to tw
  2. Basically I wrote a feedback to LTA asking why is Vehicle Entry Permit for foreign cars cheaper when compared to current COE prices. Basically singaporeans who bidded for todays COE prices has signed up for an extremely expensive price for TEN YEARS. Foreign cars just has to pay VEP at $20/day for WEEKDAYS. It is FREE on weekends. This is the reply. I mean got reply like not reply. So what is LTA's stand???? never say anything at all. LTA is getting really bad ---------------- Dear Sir, I would like to take this opportunity to clarify on the VEP scheme
  3. About 900 long haul Business Class tickets were sold online in Australia for Economy Class prices. That's an error costing around 3 million dollars. Now SIA are trying to recover this money through Travel Agents or directly from the people who bought the tickets. Apparently according to Australian law SIA haven't got a leg to stand on. Why don't SIA just accept the error and not cause major problems with their standing as a 'great airline'. Also with the major fall in oil prices has anyone noticed any drop in airline ticket price here?
  4. Was looking for a used car which has 2-3 years left. Seems like used cars with 2-3 years left have ridiculously high depreciation, some cases even higher than brand new cars or those that are 1-2 years old? This is especially so for the popular ones like altis and camry where you can get the brand new ones for lower depreciation, with warranty and 5 years free servicing. I can understand the loan restriction probably pushed the price of these used cars up, but are this pricing really what is happening if I walk into a used car dealership?
  5. Have you come across prices for economy rice that you find absurd? I ever ordered mushroom (and some other vegetable another time which I avoid now) and the stall owner can tell me it's the same price as meat (on the receipt, it's labeled as pork chop/sotong). I didn't ask for a change as I it's already in the plate but I will avoid MUSHROOMS in future. I just don't understand why some vegetables are so expensive. Do you have a habit of asking for the individual prices before you order economy rice (if prices are not stated)?
  6. I am wondering how a distributor sell a item CR300HD that is listed by manufacturer for 295000KRW(SGD330 equivalent) as SGD599 here in Singapore? Are you blatantly ripping us off? Given you as the "distributor" Normally I would expect the price difference to be minimal from what they are recommended/selling!
  7. Anyone knows the pricing? Buyer's want to do a STA Evaluation before handing over my car. f--king troublesome ah neh. :angry:

  9. My email to LTA ------------------------------ After the expansion of CTE, why are the ERP rates revised? It is not reasonable that one should pay the same rates leaving the CTE to PIE (the exit now is BEFORE braddel) as traffic going to the CTE.) ERP is meant to control congestion and not as revenue for the government. There is no Jam on the CTE before braddel on weekdays and yet there are TWO ERP gentry for cars that uses the CTE to get to Upper Serangoon Road. Why are we paying so much when the Roads are smooth? Why are cars travelling to Upper Serangoon Road paying as mu
  10. The market-driven pricing approach taken by the government has contributed to cost in Singapore rising so rapidly, beyond the rate of growth of incomes of Singaporeans and beyond the rate of growth of company profits, Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ang Mo Kio GRC Inderjit Singh said on Tuesday. He noted that the government has often been quick to increase its various charges, allowing costs to escalate, immediately upon a recovery from an economic recession. 'Each time this happens, we bring the cost base higher without having an opportunity for cost reductions. This has led costs
  11. [extract] Conducted by Polk and AutoTrader.com, the 2012 New Luxury Vehicle Loyalty study examines the reasons why luxury car buyers stay loyal or switch to a competitor brand. The survey was conducted between September to November 2011 among 1485 American luxury car buyers from six high-end car manufacturers namely Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Lexus and Mercedes-Benz.

    http://sg.news.yahoo.com/blogs/fit-to-post...-073953723.html Some smartphone users in Singapore may see themselves paying more for data usage, as all mobile phone service providers here intend to review their existing 3G packages and may revise charges to deter massive usage by users, according to a report by investment firm Kim Eng. The report, released on Monday, cited plans by local telcos to reduce generous data caps, scrap the current unlimited data option in 3G packages, and roll out more usage-based plans in the future. The review comes after the ever-increasing adoption

  15. ST Forum ExxonMobil explains pump pricing WE UNDERSTAND Mr Lim Kia Cheh's concerns ('Pump prices quick to rise, slow to fall', Forum Online; Aug 13). Pump prices do not rise or fall at the same time or magnitude as crude prices because pump prices are affected by a combination of factors, of which crude prices are but one of these many factors. Commodity and product prices, while linked, also have different supply and demand dynamics. In addition to market competition, fuel prices are determined by a number of other factors, including wholesale fuel prices (which may be di
  16. Wah, take so long to reply. Talking nonsense. Our future pappy. She really learning gahmen style of spinning ridiculous story to the audience. How to get rid of these dumb asses? ST Forum Apr 1, 2011 Competition panel's view of petrol pricing PUMP petrol is a relatively homogenous product sold by a few companies in Singapore ('Watchdog should monitor pump prices' by Mr Elgar Lee; March 23). Hence, it is not uncommon for pump petrol prices to move up or down at about the same time, even in a competitive market. As long as the companies set their prices independently, th
  17. As above. My mum gave the rims on the right side of the car a bit of kerb rash. Now checking how much would it typically cost to repair minor kerb rash (the damaged parts are less than half the size of my little fingernail) and maybe respray it to a different color.

  18. Volvo is set to go mainstream as the company's CEO, Stefan Jacoby, has announced plans to drop their ambitions of becoming a premium automaker. Speaking with AutoCar, Jacoby stated "Let's ditch this talk about premium, it sounds like a pricing strategy and it's got an expensive ring to it." He continued, "We need to focus on elegant Scandinavian simplicity, our own unique identity, and not copy our competitors (Audi, BMW, and Mercedes)." While Jacoby has made previous comments to this effect, Volvo's Chinese owners have publicly stated they want the company to do the exact opposite - build
  19. It appears that Volkswagen wants to dump its premium pricing strategy in order to compete with Japanese competitors in the compact and mid-sized sedan segments in the US. The first step begins with the redesigned 2011 Jetta sedan which will go on sale in October. The new Jetta pricing will start from USD $16,000, down from USD$18,435 for the current Jetta. In addition, the entry-level version is offered with stability control and air conditioning. Regarding the competition, the entry-level 2010 Toyota Corolla starts at USD $16,200 while the base 2010 Honda Civic is offered for $16,405. T
  20. Saab will launch its new 9-5 lineup with the 2010 model year Aero sedan carrying a price of $49,990. The all-wheel drive 300-horsepower, 2.8-liter V6 turbo four-door will actually sit atop the range, with an entry-level 2011 model with Saab's 2.0-liter turbo powerplant coming on stream shortly thereafter with a promised MSRP of "under $40,000." That's ambitious pricing in what already amounts to a very crowded and competent sandbox. For reference's sake, the 2010 Infiniti M37x starts at $48,400 and brings 330 horses to the table, while Cadillac's CTS rings up at $43,465 in comparable all
