A detail breakdown of the cost/taxes of a new car including the dealer's profit margin [shocked]

 

The table is pretty much self-explanatory.

 

This explains the high cost of new car despite the fall in COE prices! [furious]

While I do feel the pinch but I also agree we need control. Otherwise jams everywhere, got car also no use and no car also suffer due to jams.

 

What we should do more is those cars or vehicles that generate pollution for both exhaust and noise. For the sake of health, we don't need them for whatever reasons.  NO F1 please.

The profit margins asked by the ADs for the bread and butter cars are still reasonable. If you look at the continentals, the margins are super high.

 

Example: Take a look at the margin for a BMW 530i. SGD 100k +

Their marketing expenses also very high. Customer loyalty is important.

BMW AG sells to BMW Asia sells to PML sells to consumer.

OMV only reflects what BMW AG sells to BMW Asia.

We don't know what is the margin along this value chain.

PML knows the rich and famous will buy from them without any regards of margin. Maybe they will not buy if a car is priced too cheap. And if any of those who will buy from PI, thise are not their target customers.

Problem with Singapore is overcrowded. 

 

Pollution can be resolved in the coming decades with more green cars and power sources to move them. 

 

We should also control our population because overpopulation increase the number of problems (not just transport and housing) and incurs higher costs to maintain (more taxes).
