I want to buy a scooter for my wife. She's always wanted one just like Audrey Hepburn in Holiday in Rome. I haven't seen any in the few bike shops I looked at. Does anyone know where I can get one?

I want to buy a car but do not want a new one. Where is a good place to go and look? How do I go about getting a COE? or is the COE on the second hand car fixed from the first buyer?

I want to share my latest experience with other Volvo drivers. I have a Volvo V70 and have been driving this for 7 years. We have always had it serviced at the Volvo garage in Alexandra Road. Some time ago we had our shock-absorbers replaced by them. This month, before our trip up country in Malaysia, we decided for the first time to have it checked at our local garage just behind the Shell station on Dunearn Rd (just after Eng Neo Ave) The mechanics there seemed very knowledgeable and so we tried them. Imagine our amazement when the mechanic asked why we had saloon shock absorbers in the back, instead of those for an estate car. Volvo's own people had put the wrong ones in! and here are we regularly going to Malaysia with the back full of diving gear and 5 adults! I am really p'd off and will take the old absorbers that have now been replaced again to Volvo shortly and ask them why they did this. Probably thought we were suckers as we always bring our car there, and we'd never find out!

I think the street map books for Singapore are very difficult to use. So many different pages to go through before you get from one place to the next. it will be easier to have a whole map so I can see both departure and arrival points. Sometimes I take a long time to get there because I can not see it is really quite close and I take the wrong roads. I can not find a good map. Where can I buy one?

It wasn't until I came beck in a taxi this morning from Changi airport to Tanglin Rd, that the hike in fares hit home. My normal journey back from the airport cost between $18 & $20, now it cost $27, that is some increase!

Is it allowed to drive a Malaysian registered car here? What if you live and work in Singapore?

Last night we took a cab at 11.52 and we noticed that there were two extra charges...the taxi driver couldn't explain the second...it was in fact a midnight charge which he had ripped before midnight, he said he was happy to re start the meter which he did eventually...wonder just how many people get caught.

I bought a brand new Mini in August and now my passenger seat has broken. The handle that lets the seat back down and up has broken on the inside of the chair. Now I need to have a whole new chair frame installed. Luckily this is still under warrenty. Has this happened to other Mini (or BMW) users, and should I ask about the other seat??

Hello just to confirm in Singapore you drive on the left like we do in England?

We don't usually travel as a family due to the fact that the wife and kids are always away for longer than I am. However this Christmas we'll all go and come back together and we'll need more space than one taxi can provide. I know there are some mini buses that you can arrange, but don't know who does those. Who can help? Rob

I just had the worst taxi ride in Singapore, and it happened last week as well. The drivers don't seem to ever want to leave 4th gear, exept when they take off from a stop. They've hardly gone20 yards or they are in 4th again! Makes the cars rattle and the ride uncomfortable. Then there seems to be a reluctance to keep the foot steady on the accellerator, so they keep surging forward awkwardly every 30 seconds. Don't these drivers have to take a test before they can drive a taxi? I can't be the only one who experiences bad drivers all the time, but I never hear anyone talking about it.

Is it common here to rent a car for a few days? Mine has to go into the garage and they are not lending me a replacement. Renting from them isn't a possibility either. I just need it for 3 or 4 days.

I've never taken a driving test, but am thinking of taking the plunge now. Is it hard to get a licence here? I don't see driving schools on the road here like I do in Europe. Do they practise outside of the central district?
