Super special discount for PG1


Updated: A blogger has described Lim's decision to get the Merc now, at a time Pakatan supporters are hitting the streets to protest higher costs of living, as "morally wrong, politically incorrect". Read  A Tale of Two Cities by Zakhir Mohd. 

p.s. The proposed number plate for the CM's new official car is to illustrate the rakyat's displeasure, I guess, and is not likely to be part of the 1Malaysia franchise.



Original Posting:
I want also. I won't begrudge Lim Guan Eng for swapping the Camry for this silver cool Merc, with special plate number. He is Chief Minister, after all, he is entitled. Plus, Guan Eng reportedly agreed to getting the Merc because it's tax free. But the RM100,000 special discount, I'm envious. I'd like one, too, if there are no strings attached, of course. If that's at all possible, if you know what I mean.

Latuk,

Our local Merc always offer discount and rebate in whateve forms regardless your social statue. Even ah long can get special rebate and discount so long that you wanna pay for that car. Previous years model attract good discount.

Hey Rocky, it is the Penang State govt that got the benefit of the discount, not LGE. He just gets to enjoy sitting in it. If we are concerned about who is entitled for discounts how about rich people whose children still get govt scholarships or 7% discount for housing? These discounts go directly to their undeserving pockets....

Hoi apek anon 3:4th

Your comment is typical of red beaner lah the vernacular beng specie.

The issue is not the discount lah bodoh. ....why in times that the BY government is going into austerity drive to be prudent in spending.....Lim Guan Eng and the chauvinist government of Pulau Pinang led by DAP is spending Rakyat's money as though as it's his father's Lim Kit Siang money.

When the Rakyat are thinking how to make ends meet and feeling the burden due to increase in basic need costs. .....doesn't Lim Guan Eng knows that earning RM 12,000 a month in Pulau Pinang for a common cinabeng is still not enough.

Anyway....now the CM is chauffeur driven in a new Mercedes Benz S300L in style......sure need someone to bear the cost and it's the rakyat of course.

So be prepared folks for higher local government tax increase.

Vroom vroom.

Don't lah, Tan Sri.

Don't get a Benz, even with discount. A semi-governmental official such as your good self cannot be seen to be overindulging.

This is no time for ostentation. LGE should have just stuck with the Camry. It's a decent enough car, and it was quite new. So I am definitely faulting him for that one.

If Mrs LGE ever drives the Benz to Qatar for some ribbon-cutting & shopping, I want to see all petrol and toll receipts. And there better not be any of her offspring making semi-porn films and living the high life in America.

We the rakyat are suffering back here, you know?

Hey Rocky, you can get a huge discount if you buy a luxury imported car if there were no APs given to certain people.

Rocky : I want also

Yo Rocky, go ask UMNO give you AP to import the new 2014 Merc model, yg LGE tu model lama.

For non-Bumis only? Never heard of RM240,000 discount, no sir!

Bru said...

Goatfarter,

I know Kedah MB is using the same Merc but I'm not quite sure if it was bought by the former state government or the current one, nor do I care. Like I said, these MBs and CMs have their entitlements.

And like someone said here, the timing for LGE to get his Merc sucks big time, ie about the same time his party supporters invaded Dataran Merdeka to protest price hikes and living conditions ...

But of course you don't care about these things anymore, Goat .. What the other MBs and CMs get, your CM must also get ..

Anonymous said...

yeah..never heard and never get informed about 240k discount year end promo whatsoever..i believe only those with AP will benefit from it..not the rakyat like us..

Dskaun ke Rasuah? The plat number is wrong, should be P1G.

Anonymous said...

Trying very hard to make out the logic of DAPsters' excuse. They said the Merc belongs to the state therefore the people shouldn't argue about it.

Then, why do they argue about the government jets used by government officials and even the Honda Accord replacement for cabinet members?

They too said that LGE does a good job in Penang, thus deserving that luxury. Funnily enough, Penang itself runs a defisit budget and their FDI isn't improving.

What the State government did was to sell the government land (same like federal gov although the Rafizi guy went crazy about it) and increase assessment rate (same like DBKL) and also increase development charges (thus pushing property price up) and charge additional levy for service industry thus increasing cost of doing business in the state.

How can a regular Ah Leong make sense of the state's performance to justify the purchase of luxury car? The government is not performing at all.

Who said the timing is not right huh? The timing is just right. He just reelected as CM a couple of month ago, so still has about 4 years ++ to enjoy it. If buy the next few years, probably he could enjoy it for 1 year only.

So timing is just the perception.

Only "stick and stones may break my bones" remember this idioms!
You can say or write anything to these chauvinist Chinese they will keep on doing it until the Malays gave up.
Just like Umno doing the same to LKY PAP before and for a short while after PAP came to power in Singapore!
China chauvinist ni semua muka tembok and muka tebal. Should stop wasting our breath and start on figuring out on how to win the minds and hearts of middle-Malaysia! I am talking about the Malays
Happy New Year!

Lim Guan Eng is just stupid lah....He should have bought Mercedes Benz S300L series worth RM1.068 millions before discount. Minus the AP and discounts. .....He could have saved RM0.5 millions and not mere RM0.1 millions.

His advisors must be stupid in economics lah..furthermore driving in PULAU Pinang demands high powered car so to enable him to reach one end to the other.

Someone suggested that the registration no should have been P1G instead.

Vroom vroom.

The RM100k discount is applicable to everyone. In fact I'm sure can squeeze a bit more... I've known some people got RM110k discount.

If anything we should make noise why they didn't get RM110k discount! Who pocketed the RM10k! Just kidding ;)

Bru, you are being hypocritical.

No one says a word when our VVIPs swan around in the finest motor cars from Germany, Italy and Britain.

Do you want me to name names?

How about a certain Mentri Besar from a well-connected family who goes around in one of Mercedes-Benz's finest?

No Proton Perdana for this dude!

Or how about the blue bloods who have stables of exotic cars, with nary a Proton among them?

Aren't these, in the main, funded from the public purse?

And yet, there are no expressions of outrage from the bloggerati.

Grow up, Bru. And get a life.

Bru: you mean all the price hikes announced by your boss, all in the space of one or two months, don't suck big time ? If the federal government is going bankrupt soon, all the states might as well enjoy like the federal ministers plus Rosmah.

Every first day of a new year, there will be big scandal or bad news. For 2014 it is Guan Eng's stupidity to buy this Mercedes.

Now everyone can blah!

Don't put words into my mouth lah, what I wanted you to do is to talk about entitlement, since all your friends in UMNO always talk of entitlement. If LGE is entitled, then we can debate about the timing, just as we should debate the timing of the price hikes, the timing of Rosmah's use of the government jet, the timing of the new Proton Accords being issued to the government officers.

Nombor PG1 diambil daripada kereta resmi kerajaan negeri yang telah berusia 20 tahun iaitu Mercedes Benz dari model S320 juga. Saya tiada masalah jika Mercedes Benz S320 lama ditukar kepada Mercedes Benz S320 baru kerana kereta lama sudah berusia 20 tahun dan nilai semasa kereta tersebut diantara RM16k hingga RM29k manakala kos penyelengaraan kereta lama tersebut adalah tinggi berbanding dengan harga semasanya. Wakil Rakyat PR pakai Mercedes Benz jadi isu manakala Wakil Rakyat BN pakai Mercedes Benz tak jadi isu. Janganlah 'double standard' saudara budiman.

"...no expressions of outrage from the bloggerati."

The bloggerati don't really give a shit how much gomen ministers skim off into their own pockets (a theft that kinds of dwarfs Lim-Pig's Benzing into insignificance.)

That's because some bloggerati are paid prostitutati who are only after ringgiti because they have sold their integratati.

Present company excluded, of course.

Dear Goatfather,

Sorry if I put words in your mouth. So let's cut the crap and just tell your CM to return the Merc la bro, habis cerita. No need to resign.

Close one eye all you like but I know you are not blind.
