Went to cc for servicing last week. Everything went well.

On Sheng Auto, do you know what are the head units they carry? Am considering between getting one from taobao and asking them to install, vs buying from sheng direct.
Can't rem... Pioneer ....etc Better you drop Jackson a text.

Whatever suits you and car. Itís a good oil i heard. But a little pricy.
I'm a little bias towards that EO since i work in that company.

Looking to send in my ncp93 to either carclick or lten pro, to do up the following.

Eo and filter - buy in sg
Atf (got filter?) - buy in sg
Spark plugs - not sure if they have, shop in sg no stock for denso sk16
Air filter
Alignment
Brakes and fluid - if bring own, how many liters of fluid is needed?
Coolant - 4L enough right

Air filter can buy in sg n change yourself. Fitinpart.sg. Can check their website for ur spark plugs dot4 and coolant.

Refer to ur car manual for how much fluids to buy if u aren't sure.

I saw a sg car at cc. The owner was doing major servicing I think. He took out a lot of barang from his trunk- eo, filter, atf, brake fluid, pads, coolant, fuel pump, spark plugs...

Source a few stockist in sg for that SP.
AFT has a filter.
Air filter buy from SG.
brake fluid and Coolant, 4L each should be sufficient.
CC should be kind enough to top up if not enough.

Coolant better not mix with the wrong type. If you need to top up use distilled water. But best to buy enough if you want to “flush”.

I suggest better make appointment. Inform them what you coming for. Then they can allocate the jobs.
Bahasa/ simple english should be ok.

Good luck and enjy....

Where do you guys go for wheel alignment in JB? Previously I did it at Ah yuan’s old place. They way they drove my car pissed me off. Changing directions without coming to full stop.

Any really good and careful mechanics that do alignment? I don’t mind paying a premium since you already getting Malaysian pricing in JB.

My AD in SG did that to my car too as I sat in the car and we went out to diagnose certain noises which I reported.
Really can't expect mechanics to drive the car like it's their own, regardless of how much you pay. My theory is the gearbox is made to withstand a certain level of abuse throughout its life and I know I don't abuse my gearbox on a daily basis.

I noticed the JB car wash guys change gear without coming to a complete stop too. Happens rarely at the place that I always wash and they are quite gentle with the driving (not like some racer boy) so I still go to them.
