Wah, OEM part? Failing in under a year is way too premature... unless you clock some insane mileage in that time or track use?

hahaha that's the most shiok feeling. Last time go KL also my friend drive my car then I sit at the back.
Mileage about 10K up lorry Liao.
Thatís why I always bring my own parts from sg.

That time thought okay to use Malaysia parts.
Sian sia really dangerous to buy parts from JB stockist.

I normally supply my own parts also, at least can try to bang table at stockist if got problem very fast..
I did get OEM parts from JB for my civic last time though, radiator fan motor and rear wheel bearing, both held up over 20-30K km before I scrap.

Hi, I read some ppl mention hawk type. I whatsapp them for sevicing package and they gave the one below



But doesn't seem cheap. I compared with technicautocare - anyone heard of them?

http://www.technicautocare.com/servicingpackages

technicautocare even seems cheaper for the Castrol Edge Engine Oil 5W/40 - S$98 vs $RM337. The things they check should be roughly similar, although I didn't read carefully.

So in that case, not worthy to go in JB, although I'm going in 2 wks time.

Hi, don't buy any servicing package for Malaysia. The engine oil there is more ex than SG and since that's the bulk of the cost, it becomes more expensive to get them to supply the oil.

What most of us who service in JB do is buy engine oil from a supermarket/etc. on discount then bring it to JB and only get the shop to do labour(plus supply filter if you want convenience for a few SGD extra or you can buy your own oil filter from stockist in SG and bring).

For points based checks, discuss with the mechanic. Should have no issue doing. They normally just change oil and filter and point out only the things they notice and check things based on your feedback. Labour for servicing alone(you provide oil plus filter) ranges from RM25-40. Can check CarClick Garage or even Hawk Tayar.

If your car is a popular model, buy from Taobao and ship over. I got mine full set around 6 pieces CUSCO grade for less than SGD$200

Depends on your car model bro.
Best is search in Carousell for secondhand type.
Those people dekit from their ride.

Can get it 50% cheaper compare to brand new ones.

I have 4 bars installed in my ride, all second hand ones.

This kind of bar no need buy new also.

For safety bars, behind is more important, can try get rear TOP and bottom.
I installed front strut bar and rear anti-roll bar only. Cuz lowered, i worry scrap at the bottom.

Sorry ah... Rear top is boot bar? Rear bottom is anti-roll? So many bar so confused.

Depends on what type of car you have. The safety bars varies.

Rear top - if saloon car it's called a boot bar. If MPV it's just call rear bar.

Rear bottom - also called anti roll bar.
