No offence. But got money buy x5, no money to fix in sg need to go msia to do it.

Asking for it. If it's bnb jap/kor cars, the odds of getting carrothead will be lower.
I don't get you guys. Is there a need to dissect into my every sentence just to bring out points that are of little relevance. My only initial point and the one and only point is that JB workshops are not all good and I brought up a single example to show why. You guys don't seem to buy it, latching onto me like i'm flaming the JB workshops. Like i said you guys are free to do whatever you want, the causeway would not be empty because of my posting.

Since you guys are so interested in my uncle i should share abit more. He earns in excess of sgd50k a mth. X5 is just his 1 of many cars and he services them all in SG. He goes to JB every few weeks with the sole purpose of visiting his parents. That day he felt the car had abit of balancing problem after reaching jb so his friend suggested letting the workshop take a look. The irony is that he was not looking for any cheap deal. Anyway he has moved on, so let's move on as well.

Yes let's move on.
Just a wrong choice.

I also had bad experience with a so-called regular workshop in jb.
Was wanting to change a belt, the head mechanic said got stock and ok.
Took out the belt, i waited & waited.
Suppose to be a quick job(10~15 mins), but waited for 45mins still nothing done as he said need to order and get the delivery guy to send the belt over.
After an hour plus, here come my belt.
Try fixing it for 5-10mins still cannot fit in(i was there standing and seeing by the way).

So I asked them why huh? Something wrong?
Then they comparing my orginal belt to the new belt and then realised their new belt is thicker...faintzzzz.

Said need to wait again. I wasnt happy for sure, told them i need to rush le cant wait and get them to fit back the original belt & go.

So my point is that, things happened.
If i am not around, who's knows what they will do?
Maybe will force the belt in hard and break something else?

So my point to many who visit workshop(esp in jb), stay and watch.
I doubt they dare to cheat on you when you watch over what is done.

Will too suggest the same in sg if possible thou many feel safer but you never know.

Anyway thanks for sharing really.
Likewise if your uncle feel time wasting to see what is going on while repair or troubleshoot, AD should be the place for him for any car ba.

I got pre-own front & rear unit from carousel that comes with installation.
I have bros whom get it in sg and installed at JB. If you do not mind a pre-own unit, get it from carousel and goes in to fix it. Even in carousel, there are freelance installer.

Nowaday, most accessories shop in JB carries car cam.

Therefore, depends on your choice. Please use a reputable brand car cam.
Any good brands to intro?
Does qoo have good brand ?

My budget is about 50-100 SGD
Thanks bro

I remember Jackson did mention the price to me. It's slightly cheaper in JB than in sg.

Car camera can install yourself, it's just tucking the wires.

Check out YouTube.

Buy directly from taobao, contact the same seller guarantee sure have stock. Blacklisted ezbuy since last year.

They can ship everything.

Alternatively https://m.facebook.com/ysheadlamp/

But they are in KL, needs 2 days job. I went to them last mth. Superb job done.

My opinion, if installing set not bought from the shop in sg or jb.
Please do ask the fellow to test the set 1st or you show the person it is working on the spot(if possible) BEFOFE installing.

Else installed not working, yes you still need to pay labour costs hor and most likely the worker will said is your set that is not working de.

Just my 2cents worth.

Yes bro noted

But iroad to expensive for me.
Was thinking visit sheng auto see they go other camera on a lower range.

I just got a reply from sheng auto that iroad is about 1030-1300 RM
Depending ON MOdel and installtion works.

So any other Brands is good ?

Do you guys install LED Headlights ? Are they approved by LTA Or will TP stop?

Anybody know where is BTS workshop at Bukit Indah
They do what services.
