This is reasonable. Conti ride, conti price. Did you managed to get a price quote from any SG workshop?

You may want to look up this thread.
For Mechanical Repairs/ change/ Servicing, LCH Brothers quite popular. If you want specific workshop that deal with conti rides, you need to go back a few more pages as there is one list done by fellow bro there.
For air con repairs, Fuji Air con quite frequently mentioned too.

You gonna get hold of that list done by the bro there inside this thread.

Have you got SG workshop that deals with conti rides and offers original parts and at lowered price compared to those quoted in JB?
Please share.

Personally, yes only for the air con top up gas service. SG can get at $20 per top gas only.

Don't look at item by item but look at the overall price instead. You pay 40rm more for this item but pay 200rm less for another. All in, if the price is reasonable, go for it.

Assuming all original parts, brake pad, disc and the compressor price is competitive.

Hhmmmm mind sharing the workshop?

And how much do they charge on the basic stuffs? Eg Engine Oil/fliter change? ATF Change, etc etc etc
From there it may be a 'good enough' gauge to know if their basic pricing is higher than workshops around?

But again does this workshops specalised on VW? Given so, to me personally sometime paying a bit more is fine as long they can solved the problems?
