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.
