i change 2 bulbs for pole light and 2 bulbs for fog lights. These LED bulbs which are brought by myself.

should be 5RM for labour fee since balancing and alignment cost 45RM.
he also commented that why use LED bulbs, as light throw very poor, only look nice
I replied him say that why my main beam using Phillips racing version - Halogen bulbs

Welcome to boleh land.
By the way, spotted two nails in my tires while car jacked up for EO change. Signal light flicker too fast... Replaced fuse at workshop. RM10.
Drove to usual tire shop, removed the nails. Water soap tested and luckily no leak. Checked tire pressure... ok.
Boss said, FOC lah...... Left a happy man.... This is perks of having good relation with workshop.

Nope. Xenon has the farthest throw, followed by Xhp70 LED.

Marketing tactic.. business mind.. forward thinking.

If he had charged you, you would have said you know the workshop so long but small thing also kenna charge..

But the workshop never charge u, so when u recommend to others he gets more business..

He lose abit to win big later. Simple.

Not only car workshop but mostly business of different genre.

Bro I wish I can build my own website also. someone in another thread actually suggested this startup.

the $40 credit is applicable at selected workshops only with the promo tag. if ori price is $80, you only pay $40 to the workshop after you signed up.
