there was once my HKS SSQV spoilt, bring to him. He also blur, because the blow off valve is not blowing out the pressure.

 

Suddenly, he open the ventilation duct and a tiny sand came out.

 

Turn out that the sand was blocking the air.

 

Who can even think of such a thing to happen except him?

 

I once changed to a new set of Tein SS at BKS, 3 of them started working on it and 30 mins, the set of coilovers was fitted already. Very fast.

U will find most of the Subaru stuff(parts) he keeps

 

if u bring most things (Brake Kit/Bling Item/Oil Change/ATF/MTF) and let him fix ....

 

He has all the parts needed for 100K servicing (All Subaru Original)

 

U'll be surprise from Savings compare to S'pore and most important of all is that Ah Tan is a meticulous "Do it the right the 1st time" type of guy...those who know him since the GC days know what i meant.....

This is my personal encounter with him. I started driving my car for about a year. And there's this unsolved brake issue which no workshop in sg gave me a solution. So I paid Ah tan a visit 2 weeks back telling him my problem. He immediately told me it's caused by lower arm bushing without even jacking up my car to take a look. Probably it's because he was busy with another car. So I told him to go ahead and order the parts and yesterday I went back to him. When he took out both bushing off my car, both wasn't spoil. BUT both are different parts. According to him one is from a GC which is "softer" and causing excess movement to one side of my lower arm. OMG!! He can pinpoint the fault just by listening to my explanation that no sg pro scooby workshop can. And he did the bushing change and change my clutch in less than 4hours.. All one man show.. Really respect this guy!!

Bro,

 

he has all the stuff(OEM) , u dun have to buy any from stockists in Sg....just tell him that what car u r driving and he will check whether he needs to replenish any of his parts....Ah Tan will quote u based on his calculations (he is afraid of the recent price increase due to tsunami)......

 

Call him if need arrangement for 100k svc...
