    Default How not to waste money on your car

    everyone who says "upgrade" usually go for 9855 or P8650 .. the cheaper upgrades with most decent features..

    there is no way.

    the day u get a car, do be prepared tat u got the power to feed it.

    in Singapore, it is good revenue to tax car owners, from GST, COE, ERP, bank loans, insurance, petrol, maintenance, parking fees and traffic offence fines ! shiok ! easy money !
