Hi, I just bought a 2009 Avante and want to do the following:

1. Change EO & filter
2. Change Coolant
3. Spark plugs
4. Alignment
5. Flush atf
6. Change air filter
7. Brakes & brake fluid
8. Change fan belt

Anyone can recommend any WS in JB with good workmanship? And how much they charge?

TIA

pennywise pound foolish , why want to save a few bucks and spoil your ride by letting these jb workshops especially hawk tyre spoil your car. the last time i went they didnt even want to provide alignment results paper slip like the rest of the alignment shops here . i wonder why
Yes, please continue to do whatever stuffs here in Singapore better.... Nice customer waiting lounge, clean workshop, anything everything looks very professional.

Your mindset oredi TUNED to SG standard and please also self-impose ban from JB too.

Btw, when was your last time you did your beloved precious ride at Hawk Tyre?

You are in the wrong thread dude

Bcos of 1 piece of paper slip = penny wise pound foolish? LOL

On a second thought quite true, give you a piece of paper and then charges 5-10 times more than workshops in Bolehland

to each it's own. whatever floats your boat. got slip or no slip, just drive one round you should know if they have done a good job.

and by the way, it's not a few bucks. 1 x alignment, 1 x rotation, 1 x balancing cost about SGD 40 and RM80 (got cheaper one like RM50 though).

Take RM80 divide by 3 = $26. That means savings of $13, $13 is definitely not a few bucks coz u will have 13 coins in ur pocket.

by the way, not all wheel alignment in SG does a good job. case in point. Went for 10k service at Kah Motor but the alignment like shiat.

You are here to convince others not to go Malaysia?
If no, guess it is not our job to convince you to go.

There are alot of other threads for you.
Else set a new thread for your own?

"RELIABLE WORKSHOPS IN SINGAPORE"?

Just my idea, we need to do our homework on which shop to send our car to its either in Sg or JB. They have their own expertise, like doctors they have their own specialization. Sometimes it can be done in Singapore with less hustle with reasonable price sometimes it can be done in JB with bigger savings. So we need to weigh in whats the best for our beloved car😀
