this one is from Thailand. Need a workshop to fix it, accessories shops dont think can.

you can whatsapp ah yuan, show him the link and see whether he have or can he do it.
Yes, that's from AK workshop. I find the price + installation abit too step for a replica product. Magic collar is the same as stiff ring right?

Been there 3 times and I noticed they dont really take initiative to check everything to let you know what needs to replace. Normally you need to tell them specifically what to check then they will check. Other than this, their service and price is good
yeah. only bad point i can think of ah yuan is they should have at least some checklist to check thru some stuff instead of we tell him what to check then he check. sometime got a few issue but really cannot remember all and one shot tell him.

anyone know roughly how much ah yuan charge for tyre rotation?

I remember this one started by SPOON, rigid collar or some name. Unnecessary unless you go track.

Sg workshops that check this/that then tell you need to change this/that - you say they are pushing for sales. LOL

Actually to the Malaysians, nothing spoil nothing to check/replace.

actually, its quite simple. As car owner, you should roughly know the condition of your car. Got sound, got this, got that, you should know it. Make your own checklist before heading down. I do that so i make sure he covers all my suspicion. To make things simple, everytime i visit them, i will tell them my problem, ask ah yuan to test drive. Test drive is very very important. After he test drive, he will tell you the issue or he will check for you. I think ah yuan also want you to save some money. Don't everything also change. Of course, he can tell you to change everything, but are you ready for it? Those parts that can use a bit longer, he will tell you not to change. Of course, if its worn or unusable anymore, he will advice you to change. And to change or not, he also won't force you. So do you want a mechanic who tells you to change everything, even at the slightest suspicion or wait awhile longer, drive it out and have a more obvious telltale sign before changing? There is a reason why we recommend ah yuan. If you think of it, this is one of it.

Is good to have checklist cos most of sg workshops do that to show the work
process.... naturally, sg car owners are tuned to this concept.

In Jb, please tune to go along the JB way of getting the repair fixed.

Not sure for tyre rotation only, I went in to do rotation+alignment+balancing for RM45.

Is alignment+balancing a must during tyre rotation?

I know but i feel is always good if can say which part not so good or what. then ultimately, is up for car owner to decide to change anot

I dont think I have spoken to ah yuan during my past 2 visits. First time was the guy wearing shirt. The 2nd time liaised directly with their mech wearing specs. During my last visit, they didnt issue any receipt to me until i requested for it, thus the hand written one. It was until when I was about to leave when i saw one spore reg veh arriving and requesting for ah yuan. Seems like a quiet guy as all along he was quietly doing his stuff at one corner without much interaction . is he the boss or one of the mech?
