Suggest sell car at current and downgrade to smaller one and still have some money left to win back what was lost. Smile

Hmm... as I've put it to my girlfriend: The car is an INVESTMENT.

And as with all investments (e.g. my golf club), they are for a greater purpose.

Do I want to risk the lives of my loved ones driving an aluminum korean/JP car? No WAY!? So no choice... have to INVEST. *cough. cough. BS. cough*

Anyways, back to topic: Really need a good Kan Tau for spray job Sad

I only trust one place : Chin Meng Motors at AutoBay. 01-40. He's very very very meticulous and very reasonable. Satisfaction guaranteed. Please mention Jason ask u to go there. Mervin, the owner is also a golfer. All my colleagues went once and very impressed with price and workmanship.

Oh, I see. I didn't know Japanese and Korean cars are unsafe on the road. Thanks for highlighting. Rolling Eyes

But yeah, I also think its a little pretentious to classify all Japanese and Korean cars as death machines on the roads.. I've seen dead people in BMWs too..

Btw, I was joking about the Jap/Kr cars thing. *in case it wasn't obvious enough*

I still am keeping my Honda *yellow bird* fit. My first love. So no offence to anyone driving JP/KR cars.

Bro, have you tried the BMW.SG forums? Better chance of getting feedback there.

For these jobs, I'd recommend Sin Wee Chuan in Ubi:

Kampong Ubi Industrial Estate #01-40
3021A Ubi Road 1
(S)408715

Go see Mike. Really professional job and highly recommended Smile

I've already posted in the BMW forums. Down there reply damn slow and people not as friendly. I also cannot start topic there because I'm "new"

Techno: What's the pricing like? Cheap?

SWC is OK. I wouldn't say dirt cheap but you get good quality. Remember, you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. No harm in visiting him and getting a rough estimate. It's going to be 1/3rd or 1/4th of what PML charges.

I just read some advice on paint jobs and also a sharing of a disaster paint job. I guess for paint, you pay for what you get. Beginning to rethink about getting it as cheap as possible. SWC is pretty famous for a good job although their price quote is slight premium.

Did you re-spray at SWC before? How much did it cost you then?

You can also call Ah Boon. His number is listed in the BMWSG forum.

His price is cheaper than SWC and quality is also good.
