any advantages of changing different EO brands, instead of sticking to one brand?
is it cost? or better engine performance? thanks
Just trying different brands only... Cost wise, SHU is the cheapest so far for me. Am no brand loyalty guy...

Yeah yeah yeah, and because you leave this important detail out, just tell people bring in your own do cheap cheap ... people who don't know that if they're checked at Customs and found with the stuff they get taxed are going to be lost when that happens. At the end of the day it's only "cheap cheap" if you SMUGGLE your parts in.
Now ppl know liao..... Good good thank you for telling all out

Hi all,

I am getting my honda jazz 1.3 HATCHBACK LX from KM next week. I am thinking of changing the bodykit to a more sporty one such as mugen bodykit. Does anyone here have any recommendation of car workshops that can do this?

Thanks in advance!

KM shud have Mugen Bodykit. Abt 2.3-3k.
Outside, Empire Bodykit abt 1.2 k.

Note, if you intend to get outside, ask your agent if it will void warranty. Almost any mod you do outside will void warranty.

Body kit also will void warranty? Because extra weight then caused the engine/ transmission to work harder and cause suspension to spoil earlier?

Maybe also ask KM do PPS will void warranty or not....

Hi guys. Looking for a new small car since COE prices seem lower now.

May I know is it better to get the Jazz from KM or the Fit from a PI?

Fit has better feature - keyless startup

But if you are first time buying car, I think AD will be better. Safer and stress free. What u were promised would be what u will get.. PI will be more risk, from whether the shop will close down, to surprises like don't have that, don't have this when u collect the car. Repair is another story..

If best to go car forum to ask for reliable PI . Those FB photos with many happy customers are just ways to attract their customers. Just do your work well.

You do know that we are in a forum, right?

Say many times already, want to buy PI car, buy from a PI that is a direct importer of the cars they sell, and have their own in-house workshop ... not 1 of those small potato that gets their stock from a hidden direct importer in the background, and give you ”warranty” from a 3rd party workshop. Any problem any recall, the direct importer is responsible to handle recall.

Biggest problem is, direct importer PIs who have their own in-house workshop, tend to be a bit more expensive. Here people don’t care about all this kind of details, don’t even look at what trim they are getting, PI sell you the lowest-end base model you also don’t know, you just think cheaper than the direct importer PI so buy from the cheaper 1 ... then regret when problems surface.

My take is PI in-house workshop may have a conflict of interest with the sales arm of the PI if the car is under warranty. They could inflate the cost of parts or labour not under warranty or refuse to repair. 3rd party workshop is more neutral to assess parts replacement.

You never read about the negative reviews of 3rd party ”warranty” workshops like Opt*** W****? How people go 1 time after that decide they rather forfeit their ”warranty” than go back to them again? How people religiously send their car to these 3rd party ”warranty” workshops to keep their warranty valid, then really got issue go to them, everything they tell you not covered under their warranty?
