Rm15-30 for labour. Buy your own filter and oil in Singapore.

I always bring own oil and filter into jb when comes to normal eo and filter change.

Carousel for shell helix can go as low as $35/4litres/ bottles.

The last servicing, no time to buy EO.
Use workshop 5w30 eo. EO Not from major brands. Filter i bring. All in RM120.

Not much different. Maybe save $10-$20 for Helix. It is not worth the time and trouble to go into JB for anything except big tickets item repair.

Maybe you have a lot of money and no time. Maybe some have less money and plenty of time. Maybe some enjoy the time to cross the causeway and breathe different air while taking a break from SG, eat nicer food in a different currency, buy same items using a different currency, have a massage at a different price, and top up some reasonably-priced petrol all at the same time. Glad for you that you made it big enough to feel like you are in a capacity to post snide remarks. I'd be happy to camp outside your workshop if you feel like throwing some wads of $10 bills out.

i dont frequent this thread much, but just enough to know you claim you own a workshop in SG and highly against sinkie visiting JB's workshop

so you seriously think someone who drives in, is just solely for purpose of servicing car ?
so grocery shopping, massage, makan, all these counted as waste time too ?

if so, I think you are wasting more time with your trolling here in this thread than you should have.

I go in do servicing. Buy bread, buy abit of groceries, play claw machine, jiak tze char, massage and watch movie.

All the time spent okay leh. I feel worth it. Nearby Ah Yuan the chicken rice stall no horse run. Always before visiting Ah yuan, buy 1/2 chicken and 2 packets kopi o give him. He say he don't drink kopi.
