This is my first time buying a car in Singapore and it would have been a disastrous experience if not for trustworthy guys like Rashidi and Adrian from Star Deals Gallery.
Initially I went to a different PI and was nearly cheated and was literally ignored by the salesman after signing the dotted line. Fortunately, after much stress and struggle, I was able to get my deposit back.
In my second attempt, I shopped around more and decided to purchase from Star Deals Gallery, honestly because they had the best deal. I was still nervous as you never know how the after sales service was going to be and whether they will meet their promise.
To my delight, Rashidi continues to be extremely responsive to all my questions and lets me know exactly where we are in the process (when to expect the car to ship, when it will arrive, when it is going to LTA, etc). They promised that I will receive the car some time in October, and sure enough, the car cleared inspections and was registered on Sept 30 and they were able to quickly install the leather seats in time for me to pick it up before the weekend on Oct 2! That took about a month and a half in total! Other dealers were quoting delivery earliest in Nov, Dec and even January as Vezel is a very popular model. Most dealers would probably over promise and under deliver, but these guys are the opposite! I am very pleased with the car, the leather interior is beautiful and everything was in order.
The most important thing when buying from a PI is to find someone you can trust and Rashidi and Adrian has certainly earned mine. They are also really cool dudes and very enjoyable to chat with.
Thank you again Rashidi & Adrian for the great experience and wish you the best in your business!

Finally after gotten the car for 3 days , I got time to write a review.
Full praise of my PI's Star Deals Gallery and the owner Adrian. From Day 1 he has been really helpful and keeps me updated on my vezel whereabout and give advise if you are in doubt. If anyone would like to get a Vezel, you may try to look for him. Thank you for a smooth delivery as promised :D

Mr & Mrs Soon (HONDA VEZEL 1.5X)
Just collected my Silver Vezel 1.5 X from Star Deals Gallery at Amtech Building, Sin Ming. A valentine gift for my wife. An overall very pleasant experience dealing with the PI Adrian Ang and Rashidi.
This is my first time dealing with PI and I started with a bit of concerns with all the horror stories I heard. But really like the look of Vezel so decided to try it out.
After doing a bit of research on the web on who are the better PI and who are the really bad ones, I shortlisted a few and visited them. After a call to Adrian and visited his showroom, I like the straight forward manner he explained and handle things and trusted him to deliver. Adrian was very patient and actually sat through with me to go through my 20+ points checklist, hahahaha. So I placed my order and got the car probably in record time.
We visited Star Deals Gallery on the 13th Feb and decided to place an order from them on 15th Feb. Signed the paper works on 16th Feb and paid the deposit. Adrian bided and obtained the COE on 17th Feb (one bid guaranteed), I paid up, and the car was registered on the 18th Feb and is ready today on the 19th Feb. All the accessories were installed and done, the car is spanking clean, shining and ready to go. 3 days from making the order to car delivery. Really excellence service.
Of course this is possible as Adrian has ready stock and the car has just got VITAS approved. But I think overall Star Deals is efficient, straight forward and honest to make this happened. I would recommend Adrian to anyone. I am not related to Adrian or Star Deals.

Thank you adrian and rashidi for excellent service you've rendered to me. All along i was very skeptical when it come to parallel importers but when my cousin introduced me to you guys, i was more than happy to know i've met both trustworthyand no pushy guys. Both adrian & rashidi was very patient to wait for me to get back to them for confirmation and deposit unlike other experiences i have met. Anyone would to look for any cars and don't mind giving PI a try, going with star deals will nv be wrong. Look for adrian or rashidi-very cool and kind chaps! Lastly, i would like to wish you all the best in your business. Thank you so much! Owner of Land Rover Defender 110

Testimonial for Star Deals Gallery (Honda Vezel 1.5 (Ruse Black)
It was a pleasant and fantastics experience with these guys as they are professional and would not delay the transaction just because the COE is on the raise, absolutely no nonsense (of toping-up COE) from them. (I signed the deal 3 months ago when the COE is at it’s low as my dream car need to be shipped from overseas). Throughout the wait, I’m constantly updated on the progress of the shipment and when it is ready for registration, COE was obtained on the first attempt and within the same week, my car was ready for collection (Thumbs up for the responsiveness).
The car price may not be the lowest among the PIs but it is still comparable with the “market”. The assurance that you will get the car (even if the COE price shoot up, as in my case) is something that you will not get from some PIs that just “blindly” lower their price when COE is down (and later failed to deliver).
Highly recommended for anyone that is looking for PI to get their new car. The service demonstrated is simply Awesome.
Thank you again Rashidi & Adrian for the great experience and wish you the best in your business!

Mr Yap(MERCEDES BENZ GLC250)
After 3 Japanese make cars purchased from authorized distributors, Borneo Motors (Toyota Corolla, Picnic) followed by Kah Motors (Honda Odysessy) over a span of 16-yrs, I was skeptical at first in opting to purchase my next new vehicle (Mercedes GLC250) from a PI. Especially after hearing some horror stories involving errant PIs in the market.
Upon checking with Cycle on their std specs and 1-year lead-time required for their new GLC250, I hv decided to approach SDG for the enquire. Adrian, part owner/salesman of SDG was neither pushy in his approach nor was he impatient in advising me on my next auto purchase, some of the conversation/my straight direct queries were as easy and friendly via SMSs. A testament to his style and ease of dealing, plus service level.
Upon confirmation of GLC250 specs and availability from his supplier, I signed the sales agreement w SDG on 24Nov16, with a targeted delivery pre-CNY in end Jan '17.
The entire process with smooth despite my ongoing worry, if I've gotten a good deal and if things will turn out well.
But through the entire execution of SA, to actual delivery of my GLC250 4MATIC Designo white colour with stylist dark brown interior leather seats, it was a pleasantly smooth experience. Any worries would be easier addressed with a call or a SMS to Adrian. Most important of all, my new car was delivered on time, on 25Jan17 (2 days b4 CNY) with SDG constant followed with authorities and myself to ensure loans/insurance, even my new no plate, etc was settled b4 the delivery date.
I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Adrian and his staff for exceeding my expectation in terms of service and in ensuring I'm totally satisfied with my new Mercedes purchased through his Company.
I have been enjoying my new GLC250 for the past few weeks and it's definitely a great choice to purchase this car from SDG and it's an awesome ride.
Thanks Adrian to U & your SDG Team �

A review of the shopping experience with SDG:
Most people may concerns on the credibility of PI and thus they rather pay higher to get the cars from agent. I had the same concern before but Adrian, one of the owners, demonstrated his sincerity and proof to us that SDG is trust worthy company. He addressed my every single concern/question timely. He can really deliver his promise and for me, he gave more than what I expected.
Talk about the car itself, all specs are communicated clearly and are written. From the moment I signed on the dotted line, until the actual collection of cars, regular updates are received from Adrian when each step is done (loan, insurance, COE bidding, etc).
One suggestion: I think it will be good to explain on/go through the features of the car during collection. It is not critical but will enhance the experience for sure. However, Adrian answered my queries by WhatsApp whenever I post to him, even during weekend.
It was a very good shopping experience with SDG and I will for sure come back for another purchase. Cheers!
