COE premiums remained somewhat stable. This may be due to many people opting to get a used car instead of a new car.

PQP for Category A cars have dropped below $30,000 at $29,670, lowest since July 2010. If you own a Category A car with COE expiring in November this year, you should definitely consider to renew it especially if your car condition is still good. If you own an off peak car that is expiring in November this year, it also makes a lot of money sense to renew it. This is because the overall depreciation value for your renewed OPC will be very low compared to buying a new car.

Do you know that you can apply for 100% COE renewal loan and pay the PQP amount in monthly installment? For November PQP, monthly installment starts from $286/month for Category A, $309/month for Category B and $277/month for Category C. Fill up the form here to get a quote for your car.
