good evening! i understand many sifus here have their own designated spare part shops, or maybe a contact with a friendly price? :nurse:

anyways, im wondering if anyone here buy their parts/accessories online? other than the creditable Kakimotor, are there any other trusted options out there with competitive pricing? any opinions on sites like Max Audio and Cooz Auto Performance? even better, gimme your spare part contact :biggrin:

Depends on what brand of car also. Some spare part shops can get better price with certain brand of car. I have a Hyundai, Chery and a Mitsu. My parts are now from a few shops because some shops don't even carry parts from certain car brands.....lol

Let mechanic find, if spare part shop not sure, mechanic will remove part show them as sample. Worse case cannot find then got to look up VRC mechanic in Shah Alam. Problem is VRC mechanic changing over to 4 x 4.....:smokin:

Try Express Mobis in Segambut.......:driver:
Do they offer installation too? I think I might need to replace ball joint and bushings and maybe absorbers too.

Btw, could you recommend a good Hyundai mechanic/workshop? I have the Santa Fe CM hehehe thanksss

Nope, Express Mobis is a Spare Parts shop.
I heard from some, Korean Car Mates does Hyundai. You google and see. Is in Glenmarie, Shah Alam.

My Hyundai is old model, I service it with my regular mechanic in Puchong who does my VR as well as my Chery SUV.....:driver:
