Guys,

Is there anywhere I can source for Mazda 3 parts as the price I got from workshop are superb expensive

I need to change 4 absorbers and currently quoted @ RM450/pc which sums up to RM1800 for full set (quoted the same for Front + Rear)

This is the model

Thanks Bro for your advice

Was quoted RM455/pc by one online dealer..

Tried Vanli quoted RM380 and RM390 per piece

Really Mazda parts are more rare than the Korean's .... and much more expensive..

Since the car is in Singapore (I decided to source from Sg dealer and found them much cheaper @ RM320/pc after conversion)

Not able to find so far... Total disconnection for Mazda related parts....

Seriously I wouldn't advise getting a Mazda especially if the person is not ready for the $$$ and the "complexity"..


However the market in Singapore for Mazda are definitely better due to high demand of Mazda in Singapore..

Actually it's my bro's car in Singapore and one would always think Malaysia has cheaper parts but definitely not the case for Mazda. Perhaps this can be shared with any Mazda owners in Malaysia if they have same issue, to source in Sg could be much cheaper

He got this car in a superb like-new condition used car ...
4.5 years clocking 16,000km+++, new car smells are almost there....

Else really Mazda would be out of our mind to even consider....

Oh! Sometimes the parts are cheaper over there. All depends on the profit margin. But one thing for sure more original parts unlike here.... smile_blackeye.gif
