Thanks for the advice. Yes I'm aware insurance outside of the AD are more expensive. Based on the online quotes, I'm getting prices of about 1.3k from Aviva, but seems like the usual price for a first time buyer is about 2k instead.

Btw, may I know how much is the difference in insurance for normal and opc cars?
I am not so sure what is insurance premium for the 1st time car buyer now . If u could get less than less than 1.5k now as compared what I got in 2010 which was almost 2k. Now my insurance is 700++ with 50% NCD.

Kah motor has 3 in house insurance. Aviva, liberty and tokio marine. Liberty does not cover act of God. But the other 2 have.

Are you kidding? Insurance from AD is the worst, especially KM. Back in 2006 / 2007 when Civic FD was 1st out people with 50% NCD were paying anywhere from $1.5k to close to $2k for their insurance when it would cost almost half if they got their own outside ... many SHC and CivicFD forum members cancelled and refunded prorated like a few months in to switch to their own outside insurance, until the insurer banned cancelling / refunds for 1st year.
Sorry bad typo there. I meant insurance in ADs are more expensive.

So I guess it is a norm use the AD insurance only for the first year, and then switch following year?

I'm assuming it's not possible to use my own car insurance right from purchase?

Aftermarket (not original) including fan assembly, about $185 excluding labour. I guess labour will be in the range of 50 to 100, depending on other stuffs that i may want to change at the same time.

He explained that radiator can fail anytime without warning.

Not bad pricing, i saw one workshop quoted $380. Can share your workshop name/address?
I went to sg garage for my 10th year servicing. Changed my rotors/brake pads/engine mounting/fluids/suspension etc.

What is the reason for the workshop to recommend change whole radiator?

huh? when doing your downpayment, you need to inform your SE your decision on the insurance direction loh
but when you doing your car booking, yes you can let your SE know later of your insurance decision


- whether to get it from KM or via my own contacts?
is best to get more clarification on whether can you use your own insurance coverage and what is the admin fee for this
