Hi, useful post. Thanks all.

Anyone know of reliable JB workshop that can change sidemirror for Subaru Impreza? Got quote from MotorImage, wanted to charge me $600+ just for a cracked mirror housing!
You may want to consider asking Subaru AD in JB region to ask on pricing.

Really? I see if u r AA member they give 2 yrs warranty for car battery so a bit confused now

If due to change and you are frequent visitor to the North and car can still run, then is worth.

Else, like others mentioned, just replace it in SG....

Battery warranty for 2 years, yes and most workshop will give. Again, please understand that 2 years warranty only covers manufacturer's defects.....
Meaning, even you AA members, the most they give you free towing services i think.

Buying an aftermarket bumper, which needs to be spray painted (colour to be matched with existing car colour) and installed.

And to repair a 2 inch long scratch which has rusted (that section of the car also to be spray painted).

Any workshop in JB to recommend please?

For those people who are tending to repair Aircon and doing air-con services in Syarikat Fuji Car Cooler. The address is at 15, Jalan Perang, Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru, 80400, Johor Bahru, Johor, 80400, Malaysia

I have to write this as I saw many people review this aircon workshop and I myself had been overcharged so much by this shop. The price of this shop is even more expensive than Singapore.

My experience is that I brought my Mercedes E200 here on a Saturday morning to fix my air-con. My aircon had no wind for the past few days and I, really rush to fix it. The problem was found out by the shop's uncle which is told by him that my AC Blower was screwed. The uncle in this shop charged me 1500 RM for this AC Blower. I was rush to fix the AC and I somehow accept the price. The problem was fixed.

Later after coming back to Singapore, I asked my friend who selling mercedes-benz parts in Singapore for the quotation of the AC BLower and the price for OEM AC Blower is 185 SGD which a lot cheaper than the shop's uncle charged me. You guys can blame me for my stupidity that I did not ask my friend right-away after receiving the quotation from the uncle. I don't know why but I always tend to believe other people's recommendations and also the uncle in this shop seems to be nice



I have no problem with paying 1500 RM = 500 SGD if the price was right. Anw, at least my problem was fixed

I don't know why so many people give good advice for this shop. I was so disappointed with this shop, feel like being cheated when I was overcharged so much

Imo, its very typical for a Msian to increase his price once he notice his shop or services has name to Singaporeans. I encountered really quite a lot. Once shop or services become famous through Singaporeans, price automatically increase.

That's why for me, i appreciate Ah Yuan. He might be the rarer kind of boss that wants the customer to keep coming back instead of just uping his price for profits just because his shop got famous and mostly Singaporeans. Ah Yuan to me is just like saying, a prostitue that wants the customer to keep coming back to her instead of just wanting quick profits.

Frankly , there are many workshops that charges much lesser than the recommended ones here.. I've been to random workshops in tampoi, permas jaya, and one more near the mydin mall. Their prices were good. I don't go back to the same workshop cos after a while, they develop the 'he can wait la, he will accept the price quoted la' mentality

Some people feel price quoted rm500 is cheap when they were quoted $300 in SG but actual price might be only rm250, WS up price to rm500 cos 1:3, sinkies will still go ahead.

Different folks, different strokes.


I once had a serious air con issue with my car. Fuji air cooler couldn't find out the problem. A few workshops in SG also couldn't. I went mark cool twice but ah huat wasn't there. I went to a random workshop in tampoi, got it settled at 9pm for rm40. For that price , I would say it's Malaysian price.

Don't misunderstood. I'm laying out a way of saying he wants customer to keep coming back to him instead of just quick profits.
