I was there at carclick around 2 plus and left around 4 plus.

Decided to change my tyre here in sg as the brand I'm interested, JB don't have. Kumho PS31 (S$68/pc, 195/60R15) and also change battery (Amaron) here in sg (S$85, 55B24L)

Anyone can recommend car wash with decent car vacuum, those that I went anyhow vacuum.
Oh..I reached just before 4. You were sitting in the office right? remember the black sg car that came in?

Price on Amaron battery looks good man. Did you get quotes from ah yuan and da sen etc also? How did they compare?

I think Legends at B.Point does an OK job but their quality depends on which guys are working that day and how many cars they need to clear. Busy time not as good. Can consider those detailer shops like D'lux or Posh. A bit more ex like rm14 or 15 if I'm not wrong but can tell them to focus more on the interior vac part.

These Kumhos are slightly noisy right?
Not really noisy I find it acceptable.

Define your expectation of a "decent car vacuum"
At least they should vacuum the slip between car seat and the centre console where the gearbox is and the arm rest is. Those gap are slightly harder to reach.

Oh..I reached just before 4. You were sitting in the office right? remember the black sg car that came in?

Price on Amaron battery looks good man. Did you get quotes from ah yuan and da sen etc also? How did they compare?

Oh... the black car, ya you will sitting outside ha ha. You order some part right?

Never check with them but I did check with HBE AUTO SDN BHD aka Save N Safe, RM$265/pc and tire Michelin XM2 for 195/60R15 going for RM$241/pc

Giant Sg always have shell helix offer at $29.90
RM89 is not that attractive.

My last set of Michelin from save n safe(2016).
Maybe I m unlucky, 3 out of 4 tyre valves leaking. End up have to change to steel valves at ah yuan.

Ya not worth it at this price. I might just try the drum shell helix ultra the guy on carousell is selling.

Possibly old stock or improperly stored? Steel valves do look better though.

As promised.. at giantMalaysia

Thanks bro. I just got ah yuan to change for me to steel valve a few weeks back, rm10 each, paid rm40 for the set. I'm quite certain but I'll double check when I go down later.

Den, what is a good time and day to go in M’sia (Tuas) to top-up petrol?

Does anyone know the same for W’lands?
