[QUOTE=AngM018;3760209]I feel your pain on the tax. I had a Mercedes E class while I lived there for 3 years, and I think after taxes it was in the range of $500,000.00 That was 7 years ago. I still loved living there, and i'm looking for an excuse to get back.

Tell me you added a zero or two here?? That can't be right can it ?

Here is a link for the wheels
http://www.tunerworks.ca/products/index.php?id=104

regarding the taxes on the cars in Singapore, it is extremely high, just an example, a new Mercedes E280 would set you back USD157,000! and a Cayman S is USD207,000.

I paid no where close to that for my car, I have a good Porsche Mech here in Singapore and after driving it, he did not seem too disturbed. It will be going in on Wednesday and lets see how it turns out. At the same time, I drove an EFI 930 which belonged to him, this started out as a 1977 3.0l, that was simply brutal!! Felt almost no lag like in normal 930s. I must say, I am tempted!!

I will post some interior shots soon.

Thanks and I will let you guys know how this turns out.

I was probably on the high side. it was the top of the line E class, I just remember it being in the hundreds of thousands. but then again. when you have close to 4 million people on an island 24X13 miles you have to restrict the average joe from having a vehicle. It was upsetting that expats couldnt buy/own any real estate

A good mechanic will make the world of difference. there are a few old 930 guys in Singapura here on pelican, so if you have any issues, I am sure we can get you a good referral.

Good luck, and let us know how everything works out!

The price of cars has dropped significantly in the last 10 years, they have reduced the import tax.

You were in Singapore 7 years ago ... is that where the name AngMO came from ... kidding ...

yup 18s, I will take some close ups and post them. They are pretty good quality (I hope) and significantly cheaper than cargraphics / bbs

ahaha. good eye. All my local friends called me Ang Moh. I know the meaning, and I know its a derogatory term against white people, but they called me it b/c I had red hair, and I was always doing crazy things. I guess I fit the term to a T.

Well, it's time to get a different mechanic. If it's emitting black smoke, it's not starved for fuel. Black smoke is an over-rich condition. Highly doubt it's the fuel pumps. Like many people have already stated, checked for vacuum/boost leak. And don't let anyone throw new parts at the engine hoping that will fix the problem. Seriously, find another mechanic.

You might want to give Andy Tatlow a call at Flat Six Performance, beautiful car, I hope you get it running properly soon. I love Singapore, I stayed at the Raffles on Two occasions, went down to the shopping district to get some suits made and found some jewelry for the wife as well.

Raffles is an amazing hotel, also one of the most expensive in Singapore. I hope you got a Singapore sling at the Long Bar in Raffles. I spent many of nights at that bar. I also stayed at Raffles once, just for the experience, it really made you feel like the old days of Singapore.

Good call on the suits. Up until a couple years ago I would still call my tailor, and have him ship me shirts and pants. He was supposed to be the best scissors in the city, whatever that means hahaha.

I am on Paradise Island as we speak, one more day at the Cove before heading to Boca. The Raffles has been eclipsed by the Ritz in terms of price I stayed only for the experience and I love the personal butler thing so much, I had to do it again. Sorry for the hijack

Well let me know if you need a tour guide! I know most of Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. All you would have to do is cover all my expenses

On a serious note, if you have the means, definitely do it. Its an experience you will cherish, and never forget.

I to apologize for the hijack, and wondering off the topic at hand.

That would be awesome! F1 is always a good time.. Singapore I'm sure would add to the flavor...

SCHNELE: Excellent avoidance of the cold weather!

AngM018: Sounds like a crazy time.. a group of Pelicans exploring Singapore in search of...whale tail?

Sure it's not just tripping the overboost? Easy enough to bypass (just for a quick check). Or of course it could be a bad CDI box, or about 100 other things...
