Any recommended shops in jb for brake stuffs? such as rotor, pads and ss brake hose? Looking to change there and get the parts there and then. Care to share location and what brand they carry?

Oh ya btw I'm looking to change to those after market slotted rotors.

Any shops in jb for change of amaron battery too?

Thanks!

Buy parts in SG and service in JB. Even Mobil 1 engine oil got fake in JB. The JB mechanic in JB told me himself and even advised me to buy parts and engine oil in SG instead.

top speed doing exhaust only?

They specialise in exhaust but do repairs as well. Had a friend who did a engine overhual for his BMW. Another civic did servicing and belt replacement. Like your typical workshop.

Hi all,

Was thinking of going to try out Jet Auto as most bros had recommended..

One workshop in Sg says my power steering pump leaking. Need to change.

Should I buy from SG and bring in to change by Jet Auto? And also do a basic car servicing check?

Don't they have Honda parts to replace say (my power steering pump) ? Would it be cheaper?

Sorry for all the questions.

Hope anyone can enlighten me.

Usually parts are cheaper in Singapore compare to JB but 2nd hand parts will be cheaper there, just ask the JB mechanic and compare both prices.

That is why we have a lot of Malaysian customers coming to Singapore and bought engine oil back, even they themselves are afraid of imitation and rather buy it from us.

Thanks for your valuable advice.

So I supposed one has to make 2 trips to the JB workshop.

1st time to service car and see what needs to be replaced.

2nd time to bring parts from Sg and let the mechanics in JB fix it up.

Am I right?

Instead of double trip. I would suggest let them do everything..for major service. If only basic.. can just get oil, plug, filter, coolant such and move in.. I did my tyres there too. Not bad.. The workmanship..

sure Jet Cheng can do one...

up to you whether you wanna buy stuff from stockist (Thian Seng) and bring over. Jet and his father doesn't mind.

he has EO - motul. RM180 for an oil change. this was in june 2014. maybe now increase. other brands also have.

PM me if you have queries.

now my car under warranty so cannot go back to him yet. his place, if there are 4 cars there, 3 are Singapore cars....

try ah wee along jalan dato sulaiman.

but if only a fix, why need to go in?

they might rather you buy something from them and they install for you..... this way their inventory leaves the shop.. rather than just fix everyone's problems... how to operate business....
