Wah Hellhunter,

Congrats beating the jam at the Causeway.

So whatís rxactly the rm380 deal?
Haven't beat yet leh still in jb washing car now. Good luck to me coming back in la when I went in was a little jam on sg side and causeway from half way like slow moving took a while.

Normally depends on the condition and model of the car which is why I was a little surprised he quoted the rm380 without that info. I guess if condition chui he'll advise how much more to get it in shape.. Once I get a polish wax and grooming quote from the jb detailers I'll weigh my options.

So I just did my polishing at D'Lux. Found that it is not bad. Took about 4 hours. They taped up the chrome area and my plastidip before they started work. Went to City Square Mall using Grab to makan and pass time.

I just dropped by BTS, asked for quote for touch up whole car is rm2700 and polish is rm400. My car does have a number of small marks etc considering its 9yrs old on stock paint.

In my opinion they're a high quality shop that I'd use if my car was newer/more pricey like continentals/I was going to renew COE 10years. For older cars that just want a spruce up or don't care so much about small stone dents etc I'll probably go for a cheaper option. I saw a sg Audi there. A same colour exterior respray may be good enough.

Side note, I just saw a crazy fella cycling in JB traffic as a means of transport. Hope he stays safe.
Dlux polish n wax is RM200, this BTS is 400RM. but to Dlux service also not bad?

RM200 for wax and polish? Wah that's the same price as that Legends car wash at B.Point. I guess the BTS 400rm will have some degree of same colour touch up so end result would be better. When a car's shiny the smallest imperfections become more apparent.

Just go to ah yuan. WhatsApp ah yuan for price and availability. Lancer 1.5 not popular in Bolehland, not all jb stockists have stock and might need to get stock from KL.

Yeh, I was thinking that too but those S$900-$1400 exterior respray some places offer I guess doesn't include correction of all the small small dents? That's more for cars exposed to a lot of sun and bird **** that wears off the clear coat and starts eating the paint while the body is actually still in decent condition. I imagine an OPC car that's parked all day in the sun and hardly driven would be good choice for that. Also, the cheapest respray is for small cars like Aveo, Fit, swift etc.
My car not that small

I'm going to bring my car to a sg shop that handles quite attas cars and exotics to get a quote also.
