Double happiness! πŸ€“

First of all, I'd like to thank those people (dealers lah) who honour their words, who update accordingly as promised.

It's such a torture to work with people who have no sense of urgency, don't update, MIA, no reply, and do everything last minute. I really is the buay tahan to work with such people. Either I blew up and scolded them 9696 (then they decided to act on it), or I will ζ°”εˆ°ζ­»ζŽ‰! Obviously, my nature self will choose the former. 

It's okay if you're too busy to update and of cos, I'm (or rather my customer) not your only customer, BUT DON'T SCREW THINGS UP LAH. Really hate it when people over promised, under delivered or never delivered. 

I admit I'm those ζ€₯性子, and I'll always get things done asap. I'd rather be early, than to be late. So in order not to have any conflict, I always warn people first... 

Putting my words up front is my style of working, I'm really straight forward until cannot. I wonder how many dealers secretly hated me? πŸ˜‚

Aiya whatever lah. You just can't please everyone! Therefore, I'm very thankful to those who didn't dislike me cos they know I'm a very steady person, towards everyone. 

Again, giving customer the best, if it's within my means. ✌🏻

COE went up by about $2.8k for Cat A, but my Vezel customer gotten it! Yay yay yay!!! 😊

My (new vehicles) price is slightly higher, becos I only quote 1 bid guaranteed, no capping, no top up. I know some people has no urgency and would rather go for (6, 9 or even 12) non guaranteed bid. 

Let me explain why I'd rather pay slightly more and get my vehicle asap! 


My good friend (also a customer) called me that day. He said his friend, whom bought a commercial vehicle from his good friend (which I really don't understand, I thought good friend will explain more in detail?), failed to get his vehicle after a long time. (My friend who bought from me, collected quite long ago, and he bought it later than his friend.) The price was $3k cheaper from the price I quoted people that time. But little did he knows that it came with a capping, and he was asked to top up $8-9k. So, which is more worth? 


True enough, price for non guaranteed bid is indeed very attractive, but that only applys IF COE drops, then maybe you will get your vehicle. 

Let's not mention those minority who collected your deposit and suddenly close down, how long do you think you can take back your (deposit) refund? Never hear before meh, collect money very fast, refund money very slow. 

And if you really think COE will drop till sky low hor, I think you better stop dreaming. Maybe it will drop, but all new vehicles price will be adjusted up (and the jump is quite huge) by September. Why? Cos of the revised CEVS lor, some Euro 5 and Euro 6 thingy la. 

So yah, maybe COE will drop, but the tax went up, end up price same or maybe more expensive than now. 

Disclaimer: This is just my own point of view, I'm not the govt so I won't know what they will do next. 


There are so many gimmicks and hidden cost, especially in new vehicles so I'll always warn customer to ask and read everything thoroughly if they didn't get the vehicle through me! 

No, I won't feel sour if people don't buy from me, but I just don't want them to get cheated. Buying a new vehicle is supposed to be a happy thing right? 

Customers who bought through me, I'll ask and find out everything in details for them first, before I propose. I know what to ask. If you're not familiar, you won't know, and most people won't be so kind to tell you if you don't ask. 

Tempted by the low price? Or cheap interest rate (for in house)? End up they slap you with an admin (and GST) of $7+k. Please be wary of those who refused to disclose much over the phone and keep trying to get you down to their shop instead. This is just a general warning, not pin pointing on anyone but I did encounter one recently. 😬

He refused to reply me on the admin part and just say "you bring your customer down now, my salesman will be able to close it." 

I was like, how can sia, bring my customer down to let you chop meh? 

Then he got very agitated, said he can sell many units in a month and they're doing proper business. Yah, collecting admin (for in-house loan, it's a must for all dealers) is proper ah, but how much only mah. 

But aiya, once again, this is just my own opinion, you can choose not to trust me. And if you don't trust me, don't look for me lor! Don't repeatedly come and tell me "another side offering this this this, that that that", I don't like to do counter offer using other's quote cos I felt that's so uneithical. If you want quote, I will quote you my best, buy or not, it's up to you. Sorry, I'm this cool! 😎

And to those who think I'm earning a lot, becos hmm, I drive a Merc? You just didn't know how I work, I worked very very hard. I didn't sit at the shop and wait for customer to walk-in, I went around searching for customers. I don't believe in waiting for "durian to drop", I believe in going around to pick up the durian instead.  

So yes, that's our difference. I'm not a boss and I work like a horse. 🐴🐴🐴
