Thatís why always get from local stockist then bring to JB labour. Unless no choice just take JB parts if mech advise the parts need urgent replace.

Mine also rear shock from JB ws 9 moths leak.
Never trust JB parts.

Even for a simple oil filter also.

My car left 1 year+. Air con also not cold liao. Worth to repair or not? My daddy say wait until blow hot air but air con while driving to me very important leh.
Like bro says, top up gas and see how long can tahan before the next top up.
Or get is checked where is the leakage and how much to replace it.
If out of your budget, then change car lor.

Cannot. Must go car-less awhile after this one scrape. Saving up for house renovation and wedding dinner.

18" tyres will almost always be cheaper in SG unless you go to those chop carrot tyre shops in SG..
Rim you can try Carousell for local, if through private seller and you know your rim sizing, offset etc. can sometimes get a good deal.

For JB rims you can try this place, I don't have personal experience with it but I've heard they have a large selection-

Since you are heading in for the rims.... buy your fav tyre brand then bring in lor. Else check the tyre prices to compare.

Went to carclick garage today because of all the recommendations but is it just me or Ah yuan and Ah Hong seems to have a very unwelcoming and annoyed expression??
Due to that I tried to be very friendly but well they still looked the same..
