    I'm guessing you are not asking about how much is your current car worth (i.e. the info at www.lta.gov.sg).

    This is what I did:

    Assume current car:
    Buy at $120K, scrap/resell at $50K after five years, so ($120K-$50K)/5=$14K/year "loss".

    New car:
    Buy at $80K, scrap/resell at $30K after estimated five years, so ($80K-$30K)/5=$10K/yr "loss".

    Therefore $14K-$10K=$4K/year "saved" in depreciation is the imputed value of your decision. If projected over the five year period, then it will be total of $20K "saved".

    Sjourn: Miscomm: I found the shop, but not the Seagull. This is the shop opposite TC with all the Canon boxes in the window. I don't think the Canon stuff there is "water". Also found this post with more shops in HK. Welcome back to S'pore in a few days and best regards if I don't see you.

    Phillip: Read too fast, ok, keep saving! But if snapping zomming aircrafts is your thing, then 20D's 5fps may be more suitable rather than 350D's 3fps, maybe?

    Thanks for the highlight.....

    Let's say I bought my car for 97K and now can sell for 60K after 2 years, I want to trade in for a new car that cost 65K...do I still have to pay up front and is it worth it? Sorry arh...I newbie in car talk.

    Depend on the outstanding car loan you have to pay off. If the outstanding car loan is e.g. 50% left, or about $50K, then you can use the $10K ($60K-$50K) diff as the "downpayment".

    If there is none, usually the dealer will ask you to take a min loan on the new car so that they can earn a bit of commission from the bank loan, otherwise there might be a top up.

    If it is the latter, you might want to compare the interest on the min loan amount vs the top up charge and see if it's worth it.

    About the car

    easier to go to the showroom and ask them to cauculate while you drink coffee
    if you end up paying taking a lower amount of loan, then you will be paying less
    per month for installment.

    Keep in mind that your COE cost per year is very much lower.
