    depends on ur age, profession, car age, vehicle type (2-door is more ex than 4-door) any NCB, insurance type (comprehensive or 3rd-party), and a helluva lot of other factors......new and young drivers of a 4-door saloon can be in the range of 1.5k~2.5k....

    It really depends on your age and driving experience, and also diff category where the car is place, e.g. sedan, coupe, turbo.....

    Best that you can do is get multi quotations from the insurance companies and choose one that suits your needs.

    SHC (cheap), NTUC, AIG (expensive), .........

    good hunting

    another thing to note. cheap does not mean good. there are lots of stolies about drivers having difficulty in making claims in the shortest time possible....

    Oh thanks! Wasn't aware that there were so many factors to consider when choosing insurance Maybe I'll play it safe and put $2k/annum for calculation purposes... Man buying a car in Singapore is SOOOO complicated

    If you planning to get new, you can check with the Sales exec to get a quote. Normally they try to tie you with the in-house insurance to qualify for some form of discount.

    Gymrat76, Think of the S$$$$$ you will be investing in owning a car. Price of car, Road Tax, Insurance,Petrol ( going up & up ) car parking, ERP, Summons !, & after a few years, comes Inspections. Not forgetting Repairs after the 3rd year ( if you buy brand new car ). Your investments goes downhill every year.

    Calculate the total cost of owning a car per annum Think of "How many prime lenses or zooms" you can buy with that cost per annum

    Sorry, not discouraging you, just FYI.

    BTW, I am a member of AAS , I have the Motoring magazine "The Highway", want the latest copy?,inside have prices of cars and I think all the info, its FREE for a good Nikon photographer.

    Haha, thanks James. But the car will be mainly used by my wife for work, not buying for pleasure. Would rather save the money and use it back in Malaysia, but what to do?

    Thx for the offer, will check out the details from the car agent and from friends.
