Noted. Thanks
Alternatively, i have been using this workshop in Permas Jaya. Go by woodlands.

LTEN PRO
23, Jalan Permas 9/9, Bandar Permas Jaya, 81750 Masai, Johor

Contact Ah Chen @ +60127942588.

There is a Aeon which is 5mins walk away. Plenty of food there. Couple of tune shops around there too....

Usually, i will leave my ride and contact number with the workshop. Then jalan at Aeon. When there is some other area of the car need to be replaced/ repaired, workshop will whatsapp me with photo and ask want to do or not else just wait for the workshop to PM when is done.

one popular stockist quoted me original part which is way too ex...

the issue is Denso parts in MY really Denso ?

Will offer my notes when i get the quotes...
Denso has a sales office and manufacturing plant in Malaysia. Supply to Proton and Perodua.
Even part shop claim is legit Denso, can't really tell from exterior though. Had a few years working experience in Denso found difficult to even myself.

Depends on the price difference. But why not go original if you can if price isnít unaffordable. You gonna keep the car right? You want decent reliability. Going in and out of workshop is no fun.
True. Ok I will just get original from stockist and go to ah yuan for fixing haha.

Since you guys are talking about reliability of the brand. Can I ask if Mitsubishi parts & KYB parts original from Malaysia? I got quoted by Ah Yuan and when I compare with sg workshop, Ah Yuan is approximately 40% cheaper. Not doubting Ah Yuan but just the parts source. In fact, getting from sg stockist is still more expensive than Ah Yuan.

No prejudice but Proton/Perodua and Toyota can be a world of difference...

Denso MY likely to manufacture auto parts for other car make ??

Otherwise, it's likely to be imported...

these days a lot of local stockist take Toyota originals manufactured in Thailand...which has a price differential..

This a well known problem with Audi and BMW, there is no permanent cure cos it's the gasket material that is unable to withstand our weather.

Change already a few years down the road, the problem will reappear.

Sent from Xiaomi MI MAX 2 using GAGT
In this case, can we ignore and and just keep topping up the oil?

i think you can try edgeworks euro at mount austin. personally i been there before. Price i feel still ok but i think not all is cheap. The workshop can be abit busy so make an appoinment and go there early. Workshop is mend by friendly boss.

Actually JB there is a few VAG car so call specialist. You can fb and compare price.
Yes, i msged them in the fb and explained them the situation. They just said this required overhaul and quoted me RM8.8k. Not sure this overhaul is meant to replace pistons, rings or any other parts.
