I had a number of cars on my shopping list this time round, and made numerous calls/texts to do research on prices and terms. From authorized agents to parallel importers. The information can be quite overwhelming when you are trying to research which deal represents the best value. This becomes even more tiring and stressful when you need to make a quick decision since the most of the prices quoted are based on prevailing COE prices. You don’t even have time to negotiate prices.

I actually to repeat the whole process twice because there were so many cars on my list. Once I was done with test driving, seeing the car in person to gauge their suitability for my family, most of the initial quotations were irrelevant by now. It was truly frustrating. Shouldn’t buying a car be a fun experience?

Luckily, I chanced upon FunnelFlock’s website. They really did a good job on not only negotiating a good deal but presenting the information in a clear, concise manner. They made everything very transparent and with as many links as possible so that you don’t have to hunt for the info. I really appreciated the link for the colors available which led me to the BMW UK site since the car is brought in from UK. I could also see the list of features on the car shown on the deal to compare it with the features on the 216d brought in by Performance Motors to make sure the car FunnelFlock was marketing was not sparse. To my surprise, their car was even more well equipped than Performance Motors’ 216d. I was always told by authorized agents that parallel import cars are not well equipped and lacked many of the features that come standard with authorized agent cars. This helped cut down my downtime doing research, and allowed me to spend more time on the weekends with my kids.

I’m even more lucky to have been the last person to reserve my seat in the deal (there was only unit left in the deal).

While I appreciate the eye-watering price of the car, I must really commend the folks at FunnelFlock on also going the extra mile to bargain on my options. And bargain they did. I got a really good deal on the Harman Kardon sound system and the panoramic glass roof upgrade. When I doubled check the prices they managed to secure for me on those options, they were about 5-10% cheaper than prices quoted by other parallel importers, and a whopping 20% savings against Performance Motors quotes.

Having driven my new car now for nearly a month, I still have to pinch myself. I can’t believe I got such a good deal. I would highly recommend FunnelFlock to any car buyer. Thank you so much, FunnelFlock, on this truly exceptional deal.

The price is damn shiok! The customer service, si-beh steady. Even come down to personally hand me contract to sign and collect cheque. What more you want?

They even have deals on commercial vehicles! Ho-seh-liao. I also get to replace one of my old trucks while in the process of buying my dream car. I also love their commercial fleet tender inquiry system. So easy to use.

When my son introduced me to FunnelFlock, I must admit I was initially skeptical. Their special prices were a little ‘too good’ to be true – I called multiple dealers but none of them could come close to this price! But everything from the online explanation of their order process right to the terms and conditions were very clear. Their representative was professional and that helped made me comfortable with the entire process.

I have never purchased a car through Parallel Importers before, let alone buying a car online without test-driving the car. Having heard horror stories about certain Parallel Importers, I was still naturally hesitant. But I am happy to share that FunnelFlock certainly did their homework well – my background checks on the dealer through ACRA and CASE showed the participating dealer is a well-established player in the market since the 90s, with no criminal breach or lawsuits against it. A check with Experian also showed they have solid financials, and had favorable reviews from popular car forums. So, it came as no surprise that my dealer was, and continues, to be extremely professional and helpful. Case in point, their staff even gladly spent considerable time teaching me how to use certain features in the car when I dropped by unannounced one afternoon on a busy weekend.

I really appreciate how FunnelFlock have negotiated a very solid, good deal not just in terms of price, but even negotiated things like window solar film and on-board cameras, in addition to grooming the car pre-delivery for FREE at an already unbelievable price! All of which I intended to do after collecting the car, so they really have saved me a LOT of time pre-and post-purchase. Words cannot describe the sheer convenience buying a car through FunnelFlock has been. The overall experience has been positive, to say the least; most certainly the most pleasurable car buying experience I have ever had. I wish a service like this came out much sooner. I will definitely be using their service again when it’s time to replace my wife’s car. Kudos to the team at FunnelFlock! I commend you on a job well and have already shared with family and friends about your service.

I’m truly happy with my FunnelFlock deal. I’ve had my eye out on the CX3 for a while now, but was put off by the price of the car from the authorized agent, which apparently, they said was fixed price, yet my brother managed to haggle a little discount when he approached the agent on my behalf. The combination of a paltry discount and the fact that women it seems don’t get the same prices as men discouraged me from buying. The unfortunate thing was this car is not brought in by parallel importers.

So, imagine my reaction when my brother spotted this deal on FunnelFlock. What was there not to like? For starters, let’s get the obvious out of the way – the price was simply ridiculous. Yet the features list ticked all the same boxes as the authorized version, and the OMVs were nearly identical too!

My takeaway from this whole experience (which has been nothing but stellar) is this portal offers you better pricing than you can attain anywhere else through your best efforts. For someone like me who doesn’t like to haggle because I’m not very good at it in the first place (hah!), this service is a godsend. Words cannot express or describe the sheer convenience FunnelFlock offers. The whole process is laid out clearly on the website, and it’s not complicated at all. What’s more is that my deposit was paid directly to the dealer which made me feel more comfortable about the entire process.

Lastly, I also want to thank FunnelFlock on going the extra mile. I’m a bit of a car nut, and always upgrade my rims. When I enquired whether this would affect my warranty, they went out of their way to recommend a custom forged wheels provider while they checked with my dealer if it would void my warranty. Well from my picture, I guess you already know the answer.

I’m actually looking forward to my next car purchase now = )

Thanks FunnelFlock

So many good things to say about FunnelFlock, where do I begin? From their jaw-dropping prices to their top-notch customer-orientated service, I cannot compliment them enough. I had so many reservations about buying a car ‘online’ let alone buying one through a Parallel Importer. FunnelFlock and their partnering dealer really did so many things to address those concerns.

FunnelFlock’s reps were so patient with my endless queries (on copious occasions, no less), and took the time to repeat their answers and carefully explain to me the mechanics, terms and conditions of the deal.  I especially like the that this is zero risk proposition. If the deal doesn’t go through, I get an immediate full refund, no questions asked. I also like that their particulars form makes it easy for me to indicate what options and color I want, which saves me from stating all that at a later stage or from having to actually to speak to the dealer which can be time consuming and energy draining.

FunnelFlock were truly professional. They kept me up to date every step of the way of the entire process knowing that I am the ‘kan cheong’ type.  Even after the sale, they still followed up to check that I was happy with the delivery car upon collection, and another time again to make sure that I was enjoying the car! Professional and personal too; FunnelFlock is on another level. A lot of local businesses could learn a thing or two from these guys.

What set me at ease from buying through this Parallel Importer, aside from their well-established reputation, was the reputable workshop they partnered up had all the proper VW diagnostic machines. Furthermore, their warranty allows for modifications done onto the car provided they are done through the partner workshop, of course. Moreover, the warranty is underwritten by a well-known insurer so should either dealer or workshop ever close shop, my warranty would still be intact and honored by another workshop.

Their unique offering to Singapore car buyers and distinct customer-centric service will set them apart against any potential copycats for years to come.

Buying a car was always a bittersweet affair for me. I generally do not feel comfortable when dealing with car salespeople, and can never understand the complicated tax structures. I also do not have much luck ‘bargaining’ either, lol. I usually have to get my hubby to tag along. While I’m happy that he gets me a better price or certain odd freebies thrown in, he always has his own opinions on what car I should be getting. I usually end up getting a car that was not what I was looking at in the first place.

FunnelFlock allowed me to be truly independent in this whole car buying experience. I am happy with the discount, the convenience and feeling empowered to make a big decision on my own. I am sure all women can relate and appreciate this. Buying a car is not something most of us ladies are terribly familiar with, and while our men can be of help at times during the process, they can also be hinderances often giving their “2 cents” when it is not needed. It can be overbearing at times when there are differences in opinions on the car in question.

FunnelFlock even went through the trouble of negotiating the little things in like solar film and in-car camera which I would have had to trouble my hubby with. You guys truly understand the whole car buying process and addressed the usual aspects of ownership.

My hubby says that I got a good deal through you, and because your dealer’s OMV is nearly on par with agent’s, my depreciation is significantly lower. He is impressed that your dealer even managed to secure Lexus cars in the first place as it is typically not available through PIs. So impressed that he plans on doing his next car purchase through your platform, and I support that!

Thank You, FunnelFlock!
