Some might look honest from the 'outside', only time will show the dishonesty inside

it might go the other way- if they know u are always bargaining the moment they quote u they would have already pre-marked up the labour so that there is room for lowering it - LPPL back to square 1
:lol:

low profile workshops might not necessary be cheap as they might charge according to the makes (drive geely charge geely price, drive evo charge premium price)
IMHO, best to choose workshop that has credibility & take responsibilty for any mishaps that go wrong & not charge you for rectifying it

I think that GR is very honest to me and very helpfull.I blew my engine and needed parts urgently,all the staff went all the way to help me get the parts even though they did not sell the parts I wanted they got it for me and did not make a profit from the parts,I know this coz I called the dealer to get the price before I asked them for help.
Sometimes it just how you potray yourself,if you LCLY then everyone will not treat you rite.

hardware can be brought anywhere but labour can be check how much by calling any workshop but workmanship cannot be compromise no matter how cheap only goes to those who do lot of evo.labour high i dun mind but i mind getting chop head for hardware price which is more 20 to 30% higher only to regret not checking price before i paid

Yup, agree. worst nightmare is when they markup hardware n labour way above the market $!
Some workshop will even go easy on the labour $ on your 1st visit just to impress & retain u, then they will slowly milk u dry when u least suspect it over the years
Best to check around for hardware/sparepart $ & labour before stepping into any so called " honest workshop"

Perhaps one way of comparing prices, besides service, is to match the authorised dealer's prices against other workshops'.

That said, IMO patronage of a particular workshop is also a personal question of how comfortable and/or satisfied one is with that workshop.

Not everyone supports after LV-status workshops (quite naturally), but certainly there are others who swear by their "designated"/"self-appointed" chia bang. :)

Yes, there is something wrong in the wonderful and multimillion dollar land of enchantment: the Celtics now lead this seasons series against LeBron James and Co by a 2-0 margin. "Punk Rock" had hit a new high. Example: If you own a boat, maybe you could do
