The items I buy in sg then bring in jb to do.
Yes LCH quite fast in labour.
Was there on sat. Saw them replace 4 tyres for a sirocco

If fuel filter tricky then I will not change.
Actually I itchy hand thinking parts to replace.
Worry one day will wear and tear.
You are not alone. I had the same feeling/ thinking/ attitude when i got my pre-own ride.

Most of the items can just ask LCH for quote. It's not expensive. Buy the parts yourself = time + parking charges you don't save much.

The Malaysians are more mature in handling cars than sinkies. Nothing spoil no need to visit workshop except for oil change, tyres. Etc.

Fuel filter most likely need to change when your car is 20+ yrs old. Else just leave it.

When you guys service the car in JB, need to watch them to do it? Will it be safe to leave it there then collect later?

No one can guarantee safety. Watch over if you don't feel at ease. I do watch over, only going off once in a while nearby for meal or drinks.

If it's your first time at the workshop better to stand around watch what they do.
For me I did the same when I visit LCH for the first time but after that didn't bother cos they really did a good job

For those who goes often to Malaysia and having keyless function do take note:


These statement show how useless manufacturers and police are?
Or how impressive car's thevies are with $50 device? Lolol

["To date, car manufacturers have yet to find a foolproof solution to beat these car thieves," the ADAC findings concluded.

A police spokesman said they were aware of this high-tech method.]
In security circles this has been a well known vulnerability for well over a decade. There was a security consultant who wrote an open letter to car manufacturers about it which brought the issue into the mainstream spotlight almost a decade ago IIRC.

The tools for the job have just become cheaper and easier to acquire since then. When I first heard about it, it costed about USD$50 for the electronics needed for a DIY device along with some know how. These days any idiot can buy ready made kits.

Depend how "close" relation you and the workshops ppl lor. First time, better watch every person that walk close to your ride.

As other bro said, there is no guarantee safety. Just be vigilant. And be low profile.

The seat and cushion and electric seat control is ok. Just below there is a part there hold the bottom part drop off. Like a piece of cover. Thus the passenger front seat behind the plastic is flimsy

Sounds like original parts. You might not be able to substitute it with something else.

Speaker confirmed is kaputz. Unlikely to be loose wires. Just replace it with a used speaker from Sheng auto or Soon Lee at lor 39 geylang

few yrs ago, i went to one lau uncle at sin ming industrial area... he helped me stitch a small part where the thread was worn n came loose. solid work n price is reasonable. but now the whole place is gone... dunno whether he retire already or where he moved to...

try alexandra village... my friend repaired her merc backseat last year... if u need the address, I'll have to ask her...
