Write in to LTA lah......ranting here no point; fyi, I've written in to LTA questioning the 15% of bike COE quota going to Open category, a week ago. If they keep cutting 15%....like tat no more motorcycles on the road in the future (:

 

I did. I went one step further. I wrote to Reach.gov.sg

Guys, got a question here. Is it true for renewing old bike COE is $1.9k instead of 3k? Cause my phantom is still in good condition like wasted le if i want to scrap it away.

I love humanity but I hate people.The more I see of man,the more I like dogs.

hi Jestino,

 

the amount to pay for renewal of COE (they call it "QP") is the average of the last 3 bids. I don't know the

amount now, but the craziness seems to start from the last two bids. You most prob will get a lesser QP than prevailing CoE prices of 3k.

 

Do log into onemotoring with your ID to check the current QP prices. Hope this helps!

shito...

every body suffers...

used bike nearing coe end...nobody want..esp small bikes..

just like when the coe reach 2k....bike price till havent increase yet...people are just scrapping bikes...

thesame thing will happen...until the next round of bike price increases...maybe the cub chai costing over 10k on the road..used bike still have some value then...

in the mean time...i m sure u can buy coe ending bikes for a couple of hundred $$$...

i love my ezzyoiler

I surrender.

 

I renewed my COE at the Feb PQP and forfeited 6 months. $1952 compare to next month renew $2474.

 

It goes to show how the majority of us are "bullied" to accept what is thrown to us. I can hold on and see what happens in Aug 2014, but I think I am more stupid if I decide by then to make noise. I probably would be making a COE renewal at the PQP rate of $4500 (optimistically) or $6,000 (pessimistically).

 

Is this how we are going to be living about our life?

 

1. If you can't afford the COE, don't drive.

2. If you can't afford the bike COE, don't ride.

3. If you can't afford the HDB, don't buy.

4. If you can't afford to eat, don't eat.

5. If you can't afford the cigarette, don't smoke

6. If you can't afford the liquor tax, don't drink.

7. IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LIVE, THEN GO AND DIE.

High 5. I just renewed too. Forfeited one month. Lol

 

$522 for that extra month is way too much.

Some people eventually learn not to fight. Just like the canines used in the psychological experiment of "learned helplessness".

 

I am starting to feel more and more like one of the dogs in the electric cage. Shock me and all I will do is whine. I will not even attempt to escape even if there is a way out.

 

I renewed my COE at this ridiculous price. Even though I made so much noise from the start. I even said I will lay up my bike if the COE refuse to come down. Looks like I minced my own words. And I don't feel proud about it. Makes me wonder why I didn't renew when it was $1.7k++.

 

Reach gave me the standard reply

 

"Thank you for the feedback, your email has been forwarded to LTA for their consideration."

 

Thanks Reach. And you have the bloody cheek to ask me to register as a member. So that you can track me and persecute me further in my life? I wrote you one very civil email. You gave me a templated reply, plus a super sky high COE price the next month. Balls to you and your feedback channel.

Or maybe can sell because now people don't want to buy new bikes because of the high prices of the new COEs.

 

SH, better quickly sell your DR800 before the price of COE goes ridiculously high...once PQP hit the same average as new COE price, it wouldn't make a difference between new and old bike prices le.

Singapore Pools should start a betting booth on the next COE price for April.

 

Given the known fact that May 2014 will be the next scheduled adjustment of COE quota, and that there have been a mighty lot of unsuccessful bids. Will the last 2 bidding exercise bring the Cat D prices to new heights?

 

Current COE - $4,298

 

1st bidding exercise April 2014

 

Lower than $4,298 - 1 : 777

exactly $4,298 - 1: 888

>$4,298

>$4,500

>$5,000

>$5,500

>$6,000

>$6,500

>$7,000
