Anyone can recommend?

My car just bump into a parking barrier while reversing. Slight dent and scratches.

Any workshop to do this repair near bukit indah area?
What is the downtime for such minor repair?

In this thread, Sheng Auto is popular. Check them out on FB.
Some dude feedback that have to wait if you drive in. Please check price and make booking first before goes there.
If you cannot wait, then do it in sg.
yeah that dude is me.

go only when u can afford to wait. If you do 3-4 "items", and go Sheng at middle of their operating hours, say 1pm, be prepared to take your car After the sun set...

no use make appt, at least thats the case for me.

in fact everytime before I go, 1 or 2 days before I will message Jackson.
and if timing is set for say 12pm, 2pm, etc, when eventually reach there, your appointment is machiam no appointment.

not saying they no good, I have good r/s with Jackson, just that they are really short handed, despite Jackson been actively employing new manpower...

No sure when you last visited Sheng Auto. I saw at least got five workers under him. This is excluding jackson and his brother.

Usually, i early early go there be the first customer. Then before lunch time or over lunch time, i can leave there.

last went was 3 months ago.
yup that time about 5-6 workers already, but 3 out of the 6 of them are training actually...meaning technically, if 1 regular and 1 trainee do 1 car, at one time can do 3 cars.

yup like i mentioned, unless is be their first or 2nd customer, sure fast fast

Sheng Auto is definitely NOT always cheaper than Singapore prices.

Just quote a few examples that I asked them before vs Singapore prices.

putting customised inter neon lighting
wrapping of roof
fixing of dashcam

these 3 jobs that I originally wanted to let them do, end up done in Singapore. due to the fact that the prices (even if) cheaper than SG, only by less than $10 margin. So not worth to drive in Q so bad and for that small margin.

and yes, the waiting time is too long, like some dude above mentioned

- body kit
- spoiler at the back
- led lighting at legrooms
- servicing

First car, then I would suggest splitting into important vs not-important.
Important / Good to do
- servicing
- reflush of engine oil
- alignment
- full diagnosis
But chances are, if you're getting this from a dealer, the first 3 items would've been done already. Full diagnosis, usually hard to say. Would you really go ahead and change everything a workshop says needs to be changed? If the transaction is already confirmed, you should just drive for a while first and take note of any weird sounds that may come up. If all is good, then after 5000km, just do a regular servicing and change the engine oil, and ideally gear oil as well so that you know when it was changed. No need to do an engine flush if it drives well, just change the oil.

Not-important
- rear camera parking
>> if you have rear sensors, it's probably sufficient but this is up to you.
- front camera
>> You can buy any kind of snap-on camera that can be attached to the windscreen and run the USB cable to the cigarette socket yourself. Unless you want those 24/7 recording type that connects to the battery, then you need to be sure your battery is in a good condition.
- body kit
- spoiler at the back
- led lighting at legrooms
>> These are not critical. Do these only after you're very very sure of the condition of your car. Budget for this can be redirected to other actual car parts to get a smoother/better drive (especially shocks, engine mounts, brakes, brake fluid).

Much appreciated, getting one from direct seller who gotten it less than a month from AML due to relocation. Am sending to mechanic in SG for a check first and taking up add on warranty from elsewhere to cover engine and gearbox since will be using for part time grab. Engine oil seems a bit black.

Is there any price gauge for servicing? And sheng auto or car click for servicing? Got any other workshop? Thanks so much. Time to study..

Less than a month and then selling already? Sounds iffy to me. But if you get it checked and your trusted mechanic says ok, then it's your call. I suppose Toyotas should be generally ok...
Servicing wise, not sure of the price. Last time I brought my own engine oil and air filters in, just oil filter get from CC.
Sheng Auto does accessories, which is where you can consider going for the whole not-important list.
