What car are you driving?

I ever enquire about mine.
& I found better deal for it to be done in SG compare to JB wor.
SG workshop offered $120 and think JB workshop offered RM350(the rate was like ~2.8 then).
With the few dollar different, of course I did mine in SG thou.

So imho, it is not always that JB labour cost is cheaper(depend on what is done and which workshops you goes in both Sg & Jb).

But for sure the basis servicing, the labour fee in JB is much cheaper.

Best still to ask around.

Hide it well from the eye of jb custom officers. Else you will need to pay tax.

Hi,
I have a very good mech in Jb, he is at the petron petrol station opposite Pelangi plaza. His name is ah Huat, I have been going to him for many years now. I asked him how much to change engine mounts for Vios, and he said around 150 rm. talk to him and it will be cheaper. He has very good knowledge on cars and will not repair it if he cannot do it. Will not chop your head. Tell him thomas gave you his contact. Bring your own parts from sg or go in and buy from the parts dealers over there, be careful as the Jb customs now check and tax you for parts brought in.
If you need his contact number or part shop number pm me.
