$8k for package to change rubber parts for COE corolla? Is that popular? Sounds a tad expensive to me especially for an old car. If I were to renew, I’d just live with the decreased comfort.
no. The entire suspension system. Nobody will advise you to take down the whole rack to replace rubber.

Even that. I doubt I’d do it for a coe corolla. Don’t think people buy coe corolla for comfort; more as a daily beater instead. You will only replace necessary parts or preventive parts where failure would lead to serious damage to vehicle (e.g. timing belt).

You wont doesnt mean everyone must follow you ma. The cost for upkeep an old car is high because of the need to troubleshoot when parts are not working. Over the long term it is far cheaper and less hassle to replace everything at one go. Imagine for every thing small that spoil you pay for labour of $100++ to bring down the car bottom. Shocks spoil change, spring spoil change bush spoil change shocks mounting spoil change...you will be paying how many times for labour to just change shocks related stuff? The road is full of penny wise pound foolish man like you. Here i am dishing out FOC advice and you think you know it all. *chortle*

Thanks for the insult. I don’t own a coe corolla or equivalent. But if I do I won’t change for $8k.

I doubt anyone who renewed 5 years coe will spend such money. 10 years also a difficult decision to made too. Ppl who renewed coe want to save $$$ one if not why renew.
COE toyota bnb car usually depreciate about $6.5k per year. Adding $8k which is $1.6k extra per year totally make no financial sense.
Ppl will rather scrape it and take back the remaining coe and lost the parf which usually are less than $8k.
Changing whole section because one portion is spoilt so i can save labour later in long run dont work in SG with COE.

My point exactly. If you renew. It means either your car is low mileage and in great condition or you just want to save money (and not be too worried about a rougher ride or noise due to age).

Maybe, people in the first category will spend $8k to replace every the wear and tear parts at one go. And the cars in this first category aren’t likely to be daily beaters. That being the case, there will unlikely be strong demand for such replacement.

But that said, what do we know. We are not car workshop towkays like Sammy.

ya dont think toyota shocks cost 8k to replace all 4. 8k is good enough to replace air shocks for conti liao. bnb car should be 1k can settle all 4 shocks.

No you won’t because if becomes costly to repair people will just scrap and get back COE. Loss of PARF not much for such cars.
