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
How much they charge u wraping of roof?

Visited CarClick just now, and asked their assistance to replace two O2 sensors for my Stream. Was charged RM80, which seemed just a tad pricey for a 10-minute job. I might have to check out some other workshops soon just to get a proper feel of price ranges.

RM80 = SGD$26+
Which workshop in sg is cheaper than $26?

10 mins job is bcos they don't wayang like those in sg. 10 mins job they can silly dally make it 2 hours so it will appear as it's worth the money you pay. Its the know how that shortens the time required for the job.

I do agree, I don't think it's overpriced but just starting to think it's a tad on the higher side. Considering it was close to this price for a brake fluid flush, which also requires know-how, tools one wouldn't normally buy, and a lot more work, it doesn't seem to match-up.

If it is a msia car and they charge RM80, it will be consider expensive?
Those ppl in msia is earning the same amt as us. Do you see the average earning $4k x 3 = RM12k? No right.
Converting it to SGD and comparing with our local price is a bad comparison.
Yes, RM80 is on the pricing side if u compare to other local msia workshop.

Agreed, can't convert, cause these workshops also cater to Malaysian clients too

I didn't. I was gonna head in anyway since I was near Woodlands so I just decided to let them do it. I was expecting one blue note to settle, but the amount I was told caught me off guard. Like I said, I might explore another workshop soon, since I have more 2 sensors to replace the next round when I change EO.
