Ya lor, it is really getting insane. There are so many rich singaporeans but I am not one of them. This COE money generating machine is truly the legacy left behind by you-know-who. SIGH....

My car dealer told me that those who buy cars now are buying to show off, never mind what brand of cars they buy. All categories are affected. Wonder if that's true? scratch

I think we need to look at it fm the bigger picture.

USA is facing problem with figuring out how to tax the wealthy.....and imagine this, in SG, we don need to worrk about that.....the wealthy are already indirectly tax....

I actually agree...

I do realize the roads are getting very crowded, it's jam everywhere.. ERPs are not working for sure.. So the question is whether higher COEs are able to control the cars population?

@blee

bought a new Honda CRZ for myself and a new 1000cc car for my wife ...

On the road (incl insurance, full options and road tax) for both cars less than 65K SGD total ... which I think can't even buy a COE in Singapore

And the traffic (at least during peak hours) seems equally bad in both places ...

so all in all ... I am pretty happy to have left

Dunno whether its true but look at the pocket rockets on the road now. I think they are the ones spoiling the market now.

Gone were the days that supercharged and turbo engine are garage experiments in jb workshops. Now we have VW mass producing them...sighs

The golf bag fits comfortably ... it is just that my car is now permanently a 2-seater ... not a 2+2 anymore ... I push the back seat down and treat the whole thing as a boot

When I have people to ferry around ... I just use my wife's car ... 4 doors with 4 seats

However, gone are the days I could take 4 pax and 4 golf bags to go golfing in my Toyota Altis

Traffic in KL is NOTHING like traffic in SG.

I swear, there are times when I wished that the M'sian govt. imposed a similar regime in Malaysia. It's complete gridlock all over the damn place and getting from Damansara Utama to SS2 (which, for those of you who know, should take no more than 10 minutes) can take 30-45 minutes.

Like it or not, I don't see the COE approach going away any time soon. What I can say is that buy a car when you need it. Don't wait to buy based on the COE. If it drops, it's a bonus. If it doesn't, that's the way things work.

Garmen si pek clever

There are numerous indirect tax burdens, be it on the wealthy or the poor, which the government levies on us.

I think what matters more is the distribution of wealth, as well as income equality, to really gauge the true impact on society.

$100K to a billionaire is different from $100K to a young family with kids who really needs the car for transport purposes but can't afford it.

Master, what is the COE for the tank which ferries you around?
