Hello, am new to this thread. I'm interested to install head unit Sony AVH-AX200 in my Honda Civic. I've FB msged a few workshops in JB but they don't carry it.

Running through the thread, I've seen these 2 workshops being recommended, Da Sen and Sheng Auto.

Anyone has done head unit installation and can drop me a rough pricing on this kind of installation service?
HU may not be cheaper in Msia as they are usually imported. Purchase in SG if possible and installation to be done in JB.

Yup drop them a message to check on the price.

hi all im new here, anyone know jb or malaka have car shop for modification or thai rims to go thanks
What modifications are you looking at?

Rims can try U Tyre. I'm not sure of the origin though, you can ask. They do lowering spring & coilovers as well.

You can also try to hunt for lightweight original rims (SSR, Enkei, etc) on carousell. There are good drops on & off.

Hi, I realise for installing dashcam (front + back), the market rate is RM70 but seems like many people recommend to do in SG? I asked in SG they charge $50.

I bought my dashcam online, so just need them to wire to fuse box.

Anything that I need to take note of be it SG or JB?

Sheng Auto have to call to book timeslot or can I just walk in? A friend recommended Proshop at KSL too.

Sheng Auto you can opt to walk in, but if you're unlucky like me and they have 2 or 3 big jobs for the day, you gotta be prepared to wait, or to consider going again another day. Always better to ask Jackson in advance, and then go as early as you can so that you don't have to queue up.

Sheng auto better WhatsApp Jackson and book a time slot.

I have always stay away from KSL workshops. Too many chop carrot shops with sub par skills, good luck finding a good one

Thanks I'll try to whatsapp him. I don't him to do a rushed job either. I rather wait, he take the time to do each car (and mine) well so I don't need to go back again to fix things.

Yeah that's what I did. Ordered my dashcam online. Spent quite some time this week running around to collect the stuff, buy SD card etc.
Went to ask the audio shop round the corner from where I live, the uncle was friendly but like not very happy when I said I bought the camera online, I think he sells camera too. Still quote me $50 same as Soon Lee.

My car has always been taken care of by AD so I'm not very used to JB workshops. It seems the recommended ones won't give black face if you bring your own parts. RM70 vs SGD50, about half price. Worth my trip as I'll go do other leisure stuff at the same time.

Thanks I'll message Jackson if I intend to go. No hurry, I'll monitor the jam especially now the school holidays are here.
