  5. Dear Forummers, Apologies if there is already a thread for asking such questions, but I need some help. I am looking at purchasing a used Audi A4 1.8 L and the price quoted by the dealer is 68800. The car is a single owner car with 66K mileage on the Odo and OMV of 36,062 and COE of 43290. I am wondering if the price quoted is reasonable. I also saw a similar car quoted at 60,800 but the mileage on the ODO for the car is 107,000 so am thinking of getting the one with the lower mileage. Any help or feedback would be appreciated. Mods: Please move this thread / merge the thread in the appropriate topic if there is already a topic/thread existing on this topic. Cheers
  6. First of all........ a) I have searched the forum, nothing much about cleaning luxury watch straps (alligator leather to be specific) b) I refrained from posting in the watches thread, as high chance it will get lost within the tons and tons of watch posts... For this matter, if the mods think this is more suitable in the watch thread, pls feel free to merge Any watch experts there has any suggestions/recommendations on how to clean, care and maintain alligator leather watch straps? Mine is a light coloured strap, so I would presume products such as Mink oil doesn't work as it darkens the leather? Also, after each wear, I will wipe the straps with a damp cloth, let it dry, before putting it back to my watch winder, would that suffice? Any useful/helpful comments would be greatly greatly appreciated. cheers and happy 2016

  13. Mini recently announced that the Mini Clubvan will go into production and the numerous types of engines used were also announced. The company plans to debut the production version of the car later this year and also plans to release it some time next year. But even before the general public gets to see the car, a controversy has arisen recently, concerning the Clubvan. A fifteen year old teenager from East Sussex, United Kingdom has claimed that he suggested the production of the Clubvan to Mini and he has the proof to back it up. Back in 2009, Alexander Goldsmith (12 years old at that time) wrote a letter to Mini and suggested that they produce a van and he even named it the
  14. A reader suggested citizens be given some priority in COE biddings. Something like:- Cats A, B be reserved for citizens only In addition to his suggestion, Maybe non-citizens be made to pay 50% more then the COE price citizens pay? Any use of proxy ie non-citizens caught using citizens' name to bid will be heavily fined and banned from buying car! The above still allows the use of COEs to control car population, at the same time differentiate between citizens and non-citizens. Similar to recent MOE's new methods for allocation of places in schools. LTA may end up collecting more COE money thru the 50% surcharge!
  15. Is an amp/DSP really necessary ? I have the following * Pioneer AVH-P4350DVD with Head Unit cover to replace original headset * SoundStream AMP - X Stream XTA720.4 720 Watt * Sound Processor: Pioneer DEQ-P7650 Multi-Channel Processor Unit * Blaupunkt Velocity Capacitor ! No speakers The above was purchased from another owner who dismantled it and could not fit his new ride. I was 'advised' the following - Trade in XStream and Velocity capacity and replace it with a smaller amp thats able to fit below car seat. The amps are big and by placing it behind the boot, i needed to custom make a board (more money involved) - install new speakers cos the original won't be able to take it - including labour / installation, trade-in of Xstream amp & capacitor, install new speakers + back cameras would come up to $1K or so (price not fix yet as I was told my the techs to speak to the boss the next day) What do you guys suggest ?

  18. #1 ---- Daily meals at coffee shop Stall holders in kopitiams say they have to increase prices coz they need to cover costs and make a living. Since one major component of their costs is rental, why not HDB put a cap on the rentals in heartland kopitiams so that food prices do have be go up, and heartlanders can enjoy their meals at reasonable prices?? Currently HDB charges kopitiam rentals based on bidding system ie the highest bidder gets the place and in turn sub-lets the spaces to stall holders.... the winning bidder takes a cut doesnt matter how high he bids to win..... winner: HDB and winning bidder, lose: customers.... whether the individual stall holders make or not, it depends, but chances are they win also...... the winning bidder and his tenants (stall holders) simply pass the high cost (rental) to the consumers, who LL gotta pay, no choice. If the rental is capped, and draw lot to decide who get the stalls, consumers are 'protected'. Your views? Revert public transport systems to public-run operation Currently, MRTC, SBS etc have to make profits to satisfy shareholders. Passengers' comfort etc are secondary or even further down the list of priority. To maintain high profits, trains and buses are packed even at 11pm.... frequencies of trains/buses are lower than it should be to cope with demands, why? To satisfy shareholders' expectation in dividents. If the operation is changed from profit-oriented to customers-oriented, the 'profits' made can be ploughed back to improve the train/bus services instead of going into shareholders' pockets........... Your views? Any other suggestions?
  19. SINGAPORE: The Motor Traders Association of Singapore (MTA) has written to Transport Minister Raymond Lim, offering some suggestions to fine-tune the Certificate of Entitlement (COE) system. In a release issued on Wednesday, the MTA suggested the removal of taxis from the Category A COE quota, and doing away with Category E (open category) COEs. It said COE premiums are now among the highest since the COE system was started in 1990. These high prices come on the back of sharp cuts in the COE quota over the last 12 months. The cuts coupled with the high COE premium have had an adverse impact on both the motor industry and car buyers. It added that under current rules, the situation is expected to worsen this year. On the removal of taxis from the Category A COE quota, it said over the last 20 years, the taxi population has more than doubled. With the liberalisation of taxi supply in 2003, there is now no cap on the taxi population. MTA said taxi operators currently compete with the private car buyer for a COE as they are required to bid for a Category A COE to register their new taxis.This puts additional pressure on the Category A COE premiums. And because they are business enterprises, taxi operators are in a better position to bid more for COEs. The MTA said higher COE premium for taxis translates to higher cost for taxi operators and this higher cost would inevitably be passed to the commuter in the form of higher transport fees. Higher transport costs would lead to higher inflation which will affect everyone. As to doing away with Category E COEs, it said this category can be used to register any vehicle. The MTA has suggested that Category E COEs be removed in order to allow for a more equitable spread of the COE quota and to prevent possible speculation of category E COEs. The MTA is interested in public feedback and these can be sent to COE_feedback@mta.org.sg My feedback is let the buyers bid their own COE.... only with COE than you are allowed to buy the car from AD. AD should only provide price without COE. This should be made mandatory and no AD should submit COE on behalf of buyer. In addition, buyer should get their own financing and financing houses should market the packages directly to buyers and not through ADs that get a cut from deals. MTA should also provide market price statistics on used car markets for make, age and mileage to create transparency for seller so that those cocky sales man do not profit at the expense of car owners.... If not LTA should screw their proposals.... let those crappy car AD go bust. I have no sympathy for them. Not enough sales and not enough scrap for export..... they are screwed.
