Too bad they r e sole official distributor here.

Two mths ago, my mechanic brought cash there to purchase a set for me, but when reach there, e front endless s normal 6pots, while e rear s Racing 4pots.
Luckily my mech printed e specs from web, n upon measurement, found e inappropriate set. So end up didn't purchase. Was told need to place $6000 deposit n wait a mth for shipment. They dun carry ready stocks too.

Watever, watever, anyway, anyway.......... Felt tat they not too keen on selling their endless, but on something else.......... Forget it in e end.... :cry:

Either u go japan n carry back, if not, drop e idea! Do note tat there r two different sets of endless in blues, Normal n Racing. Have tried searching elsewhere, but none seems trustworthy too. Those retailers jus too keen to make a quick buck when they know u got e budget for endless.

you can also choose to ship them in, if local workshop price is X...or waiting time is too long...shipping from overseas the most 2 weeks will reach your doorstep... :lol:

With the US dollars weakling against SGD, ebay is the best bet right now.

But refrain from buying ANYTHING from tiong kok.

brake kits should be the same for all models (JDM, AUSDM, USDM etc). However, if you are getting downpipe, do check it is for LHD or RHD. :wink:

Dun ask me to comment anything, Esp between Endless n Alcon. I wouldn't dare comment abt e Evo-Alcon combi. But from personal Accord EuroR Endless-Alcon comparison, it s a world of difference. Tested n proven between a dozen of EuroRs, specifically between Alcon n my sole Endless. To each his own comments, but I shd say, ............... No comments here, only personal comments, n no arguments.

Next wk, ll check out w MB again, if they ve e Evo X blue Racing set........

Go for AP racing or Alcon lah. Endless more expensive (due to yen?) & may not be as good as the other 2, or so I heard.

AP racing & Alcon have lots of experience in top motorsport series, like F1, WRC, so you can't be wrong. Endless still mainly jiust JDM series. I think.

AP & ALcon are certainly getting more popular these dayd. I do confess have a soft spot for AP as its base in Coventry, where I used to worked. :P

Anyway, I heard Brembo quite good, but expensive as hell.
