Sometimes I wonder when people recommend and give positive reviews are they really that good. This applies to both SG and MY.
Been to a highly recommended one which is 5-10mins drive from Kastam. Price kept going up but standard went down.

Hello all! I'm driving a Swift Sport and I'm planning to renew my car COE and so decided to do the car Swee Swee before I do that. Planning to go in this Thursday to do a lot of things, after seeing all the Bros recommendation, here is the list of things I've gathered. If anyone don't mind please feel free to advise me if there is a better place that I should go, I'll appreciate any advise or recommendation.

Problem: Aircon not cold after stuck in jam for too 20mins and above. Decide to diagnose at the below workshop

Syarikat Fuji Car Cooler

15, Jalan Perang, Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru, 80400, Johor Bahru, Johor, 80400, Malaysia
+60 7-332 6820

Problem: Speaker wiring seems to have problem. Also deciding whether to do sound proofing depending on the cost.

Sheng auto.
92, Jalan Bukit Kempas 1/18, Taman Bukit Kempas,
Johor Bahru


Problem: coolant water need to TOP up almost once a week

LCH Brother
2 Jalan Perkasa 3 Taman Ungku Tun Aminah 81300 Skudai Johor Malaysia

Lastly, I'm looking for a workshop to do re upholster work for my seat, can anyone kindly recommend a good shop please?

I'll be staying there for a few days so no problem Travelling or staying late or whatever. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance !
Bro, what is wrong with your speaker wiring? You changed aftermarket speakers or HU before?

LCH car servicing

went LCH for servicing today. Previously, I always did my servicing in SG workshops and authorised dealer.

Pros:
all technicians are well trained
fast servicing
reasonable pricing as mentioned by other bros for servicing
Misc items priced decently (replacement of wiper, rotating, balancing)
I kept asking for rough price before commitment but boss seem to ignore my qn. (fortunately, when the bill came, pricing is reasonable)

Cons:
High tyre camber alignment pricing (60RM for 1 camber nut and labor)
I asked around and also did some research: this camber alignment apparantly is good to have but not tested/required in most normal commercial cars without major accident/dmg.
Apparantly some other workshops in JB also charge cheaper for this service.

Felt LCH should not have recommended it as it is a ''good to have alignment''.
However, i still went for it due to many good reviews for them in summary here. And they tell me they cannot align without me purchasing the nut. I did servicing so many years 1st time hear this.

Same experience I got from them about camber nut. But they are not the first ship to recommend this to me. The first shop I went before them, I didn't take the nuts and felt that outer wear was more prominent . I just went with the nits with lch since I did my tires with them.hope the tires can last.

May i know what car are you driving? I was charged RM65/pc for camber nut. Not upset about price difference, just curious why is there price discrepancy. I'm driving avante by the way.

I also read that camber nut is actually not needed but almost all workshops across the causeway will offer this because it is easier to rectify/solve issues with the nut.

Totally not needed for bread n butter cars. Only when you treat your car as some Spock car even though it's only a point a to b car.

Camber out. He mentioned that toe can still be corrected but without camber nut camber can't be adjusted.
