that what i think so also. if sg charge around 3k, make no sense to go jb do it. maybe ah yuan can really do vag car piston ring crack replacement.
Yeh, it's the typical chop carrot shop modus operandi..they see SG plate or number etc and they mark down what it costs to do it in SG by 10-20% and quote. So many people in SG first time doing work there and some even repeat will think the 10-20% is a good enough deal/savings. If ah yuan can do will be really good. Can see what the job really costs there.

My own car previous owner got quote of rm300 labour to do some work, I got ah yuan to do was rm150. SG was $150 or so.

that why i say edgework might not be cheap but if you need to program your vag car and they do charge cheaper, can go lah. but i doubt ah yuan got the proper diagnostic tool for conti car

oh ya, please bring cash to pay although they accept credit card. some item i think pay in cash they can waive gst charges.

Who are the main/primary importers/dealers ?

My experience is if they don't have , they will start calling one another...
I do not know who are the main/primary importers/dealers. I will just call up the more reputable ones to ask about the part availability and price.

If they don't have they will normally tell you so. Yes there are cases where they source parts from one another but you can always call and compare. There's no obligation.

guess you really try whatsapp ah yuan see he do anot. but be prepare the car should need to stay there at least 2-3 days. if not is you sell off the car liao.

if not try Auto Wheels Motorworks Sdn Bhd, Vestra Motorsport - Authorized REVO & MANIC Dealer, Volktech Motorsport, Autopro Performance

the above all i never visit before but no harm you can try. i think is all vag specialist workshop since i see the fb they service mainly vag car

lastly let me know if ah yuan really do engine overhual for vag cars

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..
Unlikely DN MY produce parts for conti rides...

Hi everyone, can anyone advise where i can get Denso radiator. My car is Toyota Allion 2008...

Thanks a heap !
Allion parts most likely need to import in from Japan. Check local stockist.
Denso is OEM for a lot of Japanese makes.
Denso(MY) products mostly to support Japanese car models available in MY.

Actually if the spare parts are from the JB workshop, I find that the savings is generally only about 30% compared to SG price, this includes popular workshop like Carclick. But in some cases it is hard to pin down exactly which parts are needed, especially if the vehicle is old and maybe have hidden wear n tear parts. so I just get workshop to procure everything. At the end of the day it is about trust, just don't want to get rip off and also want a hassle free experience

actually you want vag parts also can from jb. there is a popular stockist i guess but they don't reply thru fb. maybe can make a trip to their office to ask for the price. they do sell oem parts too which is sure cheaper then original

KS Link Auto Parts for vag and bmw parts according to the fb description
