I do not let any one of those car wash guys to drive my car. You should not allow them.

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.
I shift the car myself at the carwash

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.
Did mine twice at BC Tyre & Sport Rim. Go by Tuas is nearer.
Search them FB.
Four wheels balancing and Electronic Wheel Alignment. RM 50
Mechanics are careful to avoid scratching the rims.
Observed they were careful during road testing too. At least did not engage gear when the car is still on the move.

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.
Personally, i would prefer to get it directly from Sheng Auto. Any problem after that, just go to Sheng Auto. Last time i asked before, comes with 12 month warranty their units.

Yeah. Usually I stay inside the car if they wash immediately. Anyway my key’s with me so they can’t shift it without my permission.

You guys know any decent spraypaint shops that can do touchups on the spot? Want to fix some minor scratches.

Do you all think its worth it to renew COE 10 years for a Camry? As in buy a COE 2.0 Camry then renew it for another 10 years.

Do your calculations... be aware of slightly more expensive parts than a 1.6l Altis and higher road tax (I feel very painful for 2l car).

Unless you do a lot of NSHW (I rather you go for 2.4 Camry) or really need the space or the executive car look, you might be better off with a newer 4 or 5 year old Altis.

recently just went in to change tyre + rims with balancing + alignment, the service at tyreworld is pretty good. They are definitely not the cheapest but at least i find their service good.

How much. Did they shift your car carelessly? I hate it when mechanics go from D to R or viceversa without fully stopping the vehicle.
