i was told a sticker at the driver sun shade flap showed the car travelled 2000km after owner has sent for servicing, should be able to run for another 1-2000 km before changing?

How does that sticker work? Does it show the next mileage point for oil servicing? If thats the case then it seems fine. then again, I changed mine within a month of purchase even though i could go another 5 to 6k

It just a decal given by Shell, indicate the last and next date of servcing (6 mths later) and the next reading on the odometer, whichever is earlier. And the owner used Helix Ultra OW. Jsut googled and seems like top of the range oil so maybe i will wait till end of year :s13:

I would go for servicing and tell them to do a full check for other wear and tear parts. Last time I bought 2nd hand car, drove around for 2 weeks then did the usual oil change, change tyres, alignment, change brake pads. After that, you know the basic safety parts are new and you feel safe.

I did at AD to verify the mileage at the same time. Tyres and alignment done at outside workshop.

CarClick good at troubleshooting. Feel Sheng Auto overrated though i understand they are quite popular.

There are a few along the main road leads to KSL. You wana try just make sure do your homework and get a few quotes.
Over here, many avoid this area.

Sheng Auto overrated? You used them before? I did used them a few times for other stuffs than ICE.

KSL stretch definitely chop carrot, learnt it the hard way years back.

Did LED bulb change and some e controller thingy as recommended by a young chap, kinda screwed up the battery circuitry.
Though I understand the rave reviews are for the older bro, I think?
