How long do you intend to keep your car? If less than 5 years can go to the one you mentioned. If more than 5 years go for reputable and proven brands like 3M or Vkool.
Stealth film workz in sg.
They are good.
JB good quality ones are about the same price as SG. there is hardly any savings

Dear laojiaos, my car has always been serviced by AD but now into the 4th year.

On hot days, aircon on first ignition will be underpowered. My issue here is with the hot air blowing out, definitely feels different from when I first purchased the car. After the engine has been switched on for a while (~15-20mins) then will the cooling function kick in.

Does it make sense to get the workshop to look at it? If so, i'm considering Syarikat Fuji Car Cooler from some bros advice here.

Glad to get your advice..

Syarikat Fuji Car Cooler or Sheng Auto. Both did on my aircon before. Distance wise if you head in via Woodlands, Then Syarikat Fuji Car Cooler, else Sheng Auto is like 20- 30mins drive away from JB custom.

Note: Sheng Auto will be closed for CNY from 4th Afternoon and back 13th Feb.

Gonna fast hands and legs, get it fixed up before JB wkshps close for the CNY.

While Q up for check at SG custom, chatted with the officer and he mentioned small qty is ok lah...
He further told him he came across one car with one whole big basket of durain, then this is taxable lah.

During CNY, BBQ pork/chicken slice (Bak kua) is popular, this is not allowed even for own consumption. That was years back experience,
Not sure still applies now.
Same. Cannot bring.

VW rotary knob for electric exterior mirror broke off.
I think it is a common issue.
Not sure if can super glue back, chances are will have to change the whole panel.
Can carclick do it, and if yes can they source it for me?
Or should I get from stockist in Singapore or Malaysia?
Thanks

Noisy could be your engine oil too thin.
I once use schnell on Toyota, too heavy even though it's Xw40, less than 1k I change to carlube.

Just use epoxy bond to fix it.

Yeah, I would try to superglue it first. You'll need it temporarily anyway. While you slowly try to source for a replacement. If it breaks before you find, then speed up the search. If it doesn't break again, then voila!

Am at carclick now for engine oil/atf change. Finished and done in about 30 mins, weekdays are better without the crowd.

But be careful when driving in msia in the rain, the roads are absolute perfect for drifting and skidding so drive safe and slow.
