While Q up for check at SG custom, chatted with the officer and he mentioned small qty is ok lah...
He further told him he came across one car with one whole big basket of durain, then this is taxable lah. :s13:

During CNY, BBQ pork/chicken slice (Bak kua) is popular, this is not allowed even for own consumption. That was years back experience,
Not sure still applies now.
Same. Cannot bring.

VW rotary knob for electric exterior mirror broke off.
I think it is a common issue.
Not sure if can super glue back, chances are will have to change the whole panel.
Can carclick do it, and if yes can they source it for me?
Or should I get from stockist in Singapore or Malaysia?
Thanks

Noisy could be your engine oil too thin.
I once use schnell on Toyota, too heavy even though it's Xw40, less than 1k I change to carlube.

Just use epoxy bond to fix it.

Yeah, I would try to superglue it first. You'll need it temporarily anyway. While you slowly try to source for a replacement. If it breaks before you find, then speed up the search. If it doesn't break again, then voila!

Am at carclick now for engine oil/atf change. Finished and done in about 30 mins, weekdays are better without the crowd.

But be careful when driving in msia in the rain, the roads are absolute perfect for drifting and skidding so drive safe and slow.

Consider accessories shop too. Else get it from SG then bring in if heading in.

Try adding some Lubegard protectant first before you change out the oil. I am facing the same exact situation as you but using PUP. Engine very noisy.

Checked the specs of the 30wt Penrite oil which you mentioned and it seems like Penrite is slightly thicker at 100C compared to Motul 8100.

Okay bro. Thanks but don’t like adding additives to my car.
Will change out to penrite oil when I received the item.

I am using this motul with extra fuel economy seems to thin for my car.

Below 60km/h quite rough n noisy but above 60 not noisy

Think I better stick to same EO next time.

Yah, last week I went in oso only him and ah Hong.

So the whole workshop only him and ah Hong.. Hopefully they do a good job for my car. Ah Hong was surprised that I am using 0w40 EO. I prefer mobil 1 EO over shell helix.
