to 70K or even to 80K...we will say good bye to all those 1.5L car in Singapore..
as told by some SE...
The company will not bring in any more new model car of those 1.5L or less in..as no one will buy at this type of price...
Everyone will look into CAT B car...so soon..we will see only the rich is driving while poor ppl like us will walk...

Yes, then when everyone buys Cat B cars and nobody buys Cat A cars, Cat A COE demand drops and back to the good 'ol $2 COE days.

Till then, do u think dealers won't bring in Cat A cars? It's a cycle, got up got down, just need to wait out for the suitable timing.

nothing wrong with this..this situation is the norm before the influx of cheap COEs in 2005-2010..i wld rather see expensive COEs than a gridlock of traffic like Jakarta and Bangkok..whats the point of owning a car if one cannot drive out in smooth traffic

You are right. When you gave up the car, sudenly you will find lots of expenses reduce. Not just those goes to the car. One may do less shopping, less outing for dinner etc.

I don't understand this....

Honda Civic 1.6 cat a = $125,900
Honda Civic 1.8 cat b = $167,900

The difference is a whopping $42,000. Why wouldnt people buy Cat A cars?
Don't tell me all the people who buy cars are so rich that they can afford cat b cars as well?

agree. pple who want to buy will still buy one la. the limiting factor is the quota, not the coe value. every month it's still oversubscribed. it's just a matter of more times or less times oversubscribed only.

Weekend still can go family outing what? Take cab lor - spend the $$$ on posh restuarant ($250 each time x4 per month) as by then no need to worry about "petrol, carpark, insurance and installment monthly!" (equal about $1000?)

Year end bonus time - no need worry about road tax/insurance/inspection. Just spend all (parts goes to saving) on a holiday trip says 1-2 weeks Japan? Shiok!

And also subscribed to carpoolling or carsharing scheme at $120 per year. Nothing to do then rent a car for $60-$80 per day. Loot all the way and cover all the milages and return the car in overheated mode! Smoking hot!
