Bying/leasing a car is of course very convenient, but there are 20,000 taxis in Singapore. Public transportation is very good. If you spend more than $50 everyday (or 1500 per month) on taxi/buses then you should seriously consider getting a car.

Hi,

There are few main advantages of leasing.
1. No worries on servicing, maintenance, insurance, road tax cost and admin work - all taken care by the leasing co by paying monthly leasing fees
2. Replacement vehicle provided if leased vehicle is required back to to workshop. Free pick-up/delivery service
3. Less capital upfront as compared to buying and less hassle since you need not apply for loan

Thanks and best regards

Hi Jivin,
Do I need to have a driver license first to lease a car? I was quoted $2500/month for an AUDI for 2 years lease. Can you do better than that?

Soy,

If you have an international driving licence, you can drive in Singapore before obtaining a local driving licence (but must obtain local licence within 12 months). May I know the model of the Audi and the age of the vehicle? You can email me with the details and I shall revert.

Thanks and regards
