    Ok rephrase my statement. Low end manuals no resale value. High end sports models got resale value

    just asking... what's the average difference in price (nett) between normal and off-peak cars assuming same make and model?

    For off-peak car, you take the selling price of the car minus 17K. Also, road tax is very much cheaper. I paid $150 for a year. Insurance remains the same though...

    I'm sure you know the 'working hours' for off-peak cars right?

    For off-peak cars you no need to pay the COE price.

    It is use to offset, not no need to pay. If COE goes beyond 17K, still need to pay the balance.

    An upfront rebate of $17,000 to be offset against the following items:

    (a) COE Quota Premium
    (b) Additional Registration Fee (ARF)


    The rebate is first offset against the COE premium payable. Any excess is then offset against the ARF payable.

    I used to drive to camp too. Even tho I'm stay in personnel. Why? Driving to camp takes 15mins. Taking public transport takes 45mins-1hr (actually timed it, it seriously does take this long). Good for nights-off activities too.

    It's around the same time for me unless I am on roving to other camps (I normally choose to be attached to the ones with direct buses home )

    Yes you are rights, hopefully the COE price do not go beyond 17K for those who interested to buy weekend car.

    In fact weekend car save alot on road tax and insurance too.
