Should you purchase a parallel imported car when it is downward trend for COE premiums?

Certificates of entitlement (COE) ended lower for CAT A, B and E. CAT B dipped 12.8 percent to just $46,229, the lowest premiums since February this year. Both premiums for Cat A and E also falls 4.5% to $48,000) and 5.8% to $50,010 respectively. The above chart clearly shows that premiums for these categories have a drastic drop in premiums across these 3 categories.

A total number of bids received in the latest bidding for both CAT A and B are lesser compared to previous 2 biddings. Surprising CAT E premiums dropped despite an increase of bids received in the latest bidding whereas premiums for CAT C increased with lesser bids received.

Prospective car buyers like yourself must be predicting if this downward trend will continue and if you are able to secure a much lower COE premiums in the next few biddings. We advise our customers not to wait any longer as COE will rise again very soon.

Based on 2015 records, the premiums also fall in December despite predictions that more people are shopping for cars for the new year. One of the reasons might be due to many Singaporeans are overseas for their holidays. January earlier this year, the premiums rebounded due to more Singaporeans are ready to purchase a car with more cash in hand for Chinese New Year after receiving their year-end bonus in late December.

We advise potential car buyers to quickly purchase their dream car with Cars & Stars to avoid paying unnecessary higher premiums. More demands in January 2017 will definitely increase COE premiums. Why pay a higher premium later when you can get a lower premium this month?
