No, Stevo's tango orange uses wooden posts to keep the doors closed. This one looks like it works as per normal :?

I wonder if painting out the middle of the lower front clam looks good or crappy up close .
It gives it a late SLK look .

I must say, the M100 does look good in orange and black (I think I already said your red shed would look good wrapped in this Clemo)

Hard to believe the car is 25 years old until you look at the switchgear :?

First off that's in Singapore dollars so its 25% lower in USD, if you've ever owned or purchased a car in Singapore you would appreciate what a good deal this is, albeit higher than i would like mileage. Owning insuring and permitting a car in Singapore is a real eye (and wallet!) opener :shock: Look at the price of the MR2 below it!

But surely, whatever the currency, a car that is $21,800 now with a depreciation of $16,400 per annum isn't worth much ?? In less than 1.5 years it must be worthless ?? :smt017

That number is not that simple in Singapore, the process of calculating vehicle depreciation is more complicated as the COE (Certificate of Entitlement) is a key factor and one of the main reasons owners tend to scrap their cars after 10 years (The lifespan of a car is controlled by the COE) You cant just simply buy a car and register it in Singapore. You need a COE which is only issued via an auction process, and can and does cost way more than the purchase price of a used car. The COE, RF and ARF and PARF (registration fees) are the main reasons why cars are so expensive in Singapore, this pretty much explains it:
https://www.valuepenguin.sg/understandi ... -singapore add to that their huge import taxes and you need deep pockets to own a car in Singapore. As an example a new Toyota Corolla would cost you the equivalent of 73,000 pounds (yes, that's a seven and a three followed by three zeros :shock: )

This is Fabians car, he posted it here not that long ago..... viewtopic.php?f=45&t=26339&p=335254&hilit=fabian#p335253 .

There are also some really good HD pictures of it here.... https://sg.carousell.com/p/lotus-elan-s ... 135179352/

He explained to me how difficult and very expensive it is to own a car in Singapore, mainly in an effort to limit pollution and congestion (apparently). The cost of the Singaporean certificate of entitlement on its own would buy a brand new Elise!.

I know a Singaporean lad that came to Scotland to live, he told me the UK was like moving to paradise for a petrolhead like him!.

It does put it in perspective how lucky we Brit's are really, it could be a heck of a lot worse. :cheers:

Thanks for explaining the complexities Colin. I hadn't realised that owning a car in Singapore was so complex and expensive :shock:

No worries, I've been through the process and its a lot like expecting your kid (in my case my daughter) to go to your local university only to discover she's going to the other side of the world with the costs associated with it :lol: And that's just the first car! if you want a second you get special red plates that only allow you to drive it on weekends or certain days of the week and the costs are astronomical. Its one of the reasons a lot of Singaporeans buy a residence just across the bridge in Malaysia, buy and register a car there and drive it back and forth over the causeway that connects the two countries. Reminds me of when i saw a beautiful (used) 95 Esprit S4s for sale, i had to have it, but when the dust settled it was going to cost me the equivalent of 248,000 pounds, bought a condo instead :lol:
