for me, i will ask the mech to move front left to rear right, front right to rear left, rear right to front right and rear left to front left.

if your front and rear different size, then just swap left and right.

my exp with most mech is they will just move the front to the rear, vice versa.

Change to non directional tyres.
Directional tyres are just too troublesome for me.

anyone contacted Da Sen recently ?

ignored whatsapp messages (both phones), despite one time saw him online, multiple messages ignored, and the first message that was ignored dated way back to 1 month plus ago.

calls also dont pick up.

used to be nothing but praise about him, cause I been there 3 times. cause da sen is way cheaper than Sheng Auto.

now like this

(fyi no heated argument or what leh, i didnt even negotiate whenever i am there cause he is already cheap)

JB workshop usually won't suggest change this and that... unless spotted in critical condition and all safety related.
The usual workshop i using, the boss would tell me straight, still can tong dun need to change lah, even i said for every 10k, i want change SP, he would say take that monies treat him bfast. Lolz.
This is what i like of JB workshops, though there are some also like this in SG.
Did not use CC due to distance for me.
Actually its not that far if you go in via tuas, bout 15mins from custom if traffic is smooth.

Classic case of a old Chinese saying
路遥知马力,日久见人心

It's been close to 2 yrs since I recommended Sheng Auto on this thread. So far so good except for long queues.

yup i guess peeps that go to DaSen is because of 2 reasons.
Sheng Auto has long waiting time + more ex than DaSen, sometimes by 一倍 (based on experiencesss with both)

services wise, no doubt, Sheng better with Jackson

I msg'd the Da Sen specs bro last on 12 Feb 2019 to ask for a quote for my friend. He replied asking which exact model car but when I provided the variant, my msg went unread, msg'd again on 13th Feb for follow up and also unread/unanswered to date.

Personally, I wouldn't go back there other than for very basic jobs that they really cannot mess up. Like maybe applying tints to lamps or other small jobs. My own experience with them which I haven't related here is as follows(will put in spoiler tag as it'll be a long post)-

Spoiler!

reading your experience with DaSen, the specky guy is call Ah Xian, and I think, think only, that he is the boss, correct me if I am wrong from fellow bro whom initially recommend DaSen. and yes he is the friendly type that agree and say can do to everything

if he is indeed the boss, then his pattern cannot, will kenna makan by his own staffs, there is one guy in his shop that I super dont like, cant really describe him case no distinctive features about him.

the last trip I was there, drove in, i was friendly and said hi and even smile to that guy, but his face black until like I owe him $, upon seeing Singapore car came.

dunno issit they got bad impression of SG car owners , thinking that we troublesome and Geh Gao.


and now that u mentioned, seems like I am not the only Singaporeans that was ignored by DaSen

their facebook page provided 2 mobile numbers, initially I always message one of the number and his profile pic is the specky guy, Ah Xian, after my messages got unread, I message the other mobile number listed in their Facebook page, he saw my message due to blue ticks, but did not reply.

So now Sheng Auto vs DaSen.
Personally no use DaSen before. But the feedback is like text messages gone un read oredi turn me down.
Agreed Sheng Auto could be long q at times, trade in for the good customer services and prompt respond and price is cheaper than SG, even best offered me his brother's new Honda Civic for my errands or spin ard just to kill time. These kept me going to Sheng Auto and also recommended frds to Jackson.
