Heading down to a car workshop during weekends may not be the perfect family outing one looks forward to during weekends. However, if the intention was to protect the family, it becomes a necessity. With the recent spate of cars travelling in opposite directions, safety on Singapore becomes questionable. This lead to the decision to get a decent dash cam in the event of an accident where evidence is important in relation to the insurance claim.
With Mommy out of town for the weekend, it was all boys excursion to Autobacs Bukit Batok.
|Rims @ Autobacs|
Autobacs has been around in Singapore for the past 23 years. It is probably a familiar brand with car owners in Singapore. Most would associate it with car accessories or even deem it as a tires and rims shop. We found out it was a lot more than that during our first visit. Hailing from Japan, Autobacs is a one-stop shop for your car needs. Think of it as a supermarket for car accessories. You are almost certain to find something you need for cars . At the same time you can pamper it with servicing and upgrades.
Before we start exploring Autobacs, we decided to head down to the workshop to fixed up our dash-cam that we picked up. If you are buying a dash-cam, we recommend that you get it fixed up in the workshop. The trained specialist would be able to hide the pesky wires from sight as well as provide installation and wiring to the car batteries for dash cams with park function. Bottom-line, it will be much safer to get a professional to do the job than to DIY when it comes to meddling with car mechanics.

Most of the patrons were there to do the regular car servicing. Compared to servicing at the authorised dealers, you can save a bundle here. In addition, from that we observed, the car workshop is equipped with modern machinery that would rival most workshops. Save for the supercars, we were told that Autobacs can service most cars in the market.
A little tip, if you book in advance for servicing, you would probably only need to wait for an hour or two for your car to be ready. Compared to 'losing' the car for a whole day in authorised workshops, this is another plus.

In addition, Autobacs do provide different package for various engine oils. You can choose your preferred engine oil off the shelves and simply foot the labour bill for a change. We reckoned this model would give car owners the greatest flexibility and a peace of mind.

|How old is the tyre|
The tire showed 1716 - Meaning it was produced on the 17 week of 2016. Use that as a gauge to check the age of the tyre.

For those heading across the causeway, it does pay to get a little more assurance when you are driving there. The various steering locks on sale would suit the need for extra protection.
You could do so with this double tray found in the store. A nifty item to get especially if you are picking hungry primary school kids from the end of school.

Hello Kitty anyone?
If you are looking for a great deal, look out for these Down Down Deal signs. The discounts are simply outrageous. If we had our way, we would want to swipe all of them because they were such good deals.
