Thanks for all the replies to my question on early redemption. [thumbsup]

 

Actually, the SE will always say take up the loan and get the freebies.

 

I am not sure but I suspect maybe if we vehemently insist on not taking up the loan, C&C may still give the freebies(maybe not so much). Personally, I think the critical freebies r the service credits, front/back camera, and solar flim. Those overpriced backpack, umbrella, head cushions, etc r nice to have only.

 

For consumers, I guess it is whether the early settlement(a few thousand depending on loan amt) + plus our own admin effort to remember to pay monthly or setup/terminate GIRO just for that few mths or 1 year is worth the critical freebies ...

 

For C&C, it must be more profitable for them if we take up loans, if not, why not accept full payment which is easier for eveyone - SE, accounts dept and consumers.

That's a fact, not only for C&C but all dealers. Sales of car alone does not yield much profit. The bulk of car owners don't change car every 1 year. So they can only spin profit off servicing, parts and loan commission.

This is exactly why in US they have the dealer union strongly objecting to direct sales by car brands (just look at the war between Tesla and the dealer union).

Hi, you have to get your tire replaced asap, it may burst anytime. Do not try to inflate the tyre further. Meantime, drive at a slower speed, especially when cornering, be extra careful. And remember, in case the tyre burst for whatever reason, steer your car safely to the road side, do not panic and step hard on your brake.
It depends on the size of your tyres, not necessarily your front pressure exceed limit, refer to your tyre pressure guide. And it looks like you are having a front wheel drive car, usually the front wheel drive cars have a higher tyre pressure in front.

Hi... How can you tell between real or fake leather on Mercedes cars, or is it always fake?  When Mercedes website say "Leather bahia brown" for example, is it real leather?  How exactly do you maintain Mercedes fake leather? With same leather cleaner and conditioner?  Will the material absorb the conditioner?  Please share your experience.  Thanks.

The "Leather bahia brown" is real leather. The ARTICO man-made leather is fake leather.
