Should I bring my own car parts for repair
There is definitely the option of bringing your own purchased car parts for repair. You may believe that purchasing your vehicle components would save you money. After all, you may shop around for really low cost parts. However, this option does come with its risks.
Choosing a component that is not suitable for your vehicle is the first risk. This can cause more damage, and even end up needing a total new replacement if not compatible for installation. Secondly, you may get a shoddy product that has a short life span. Furthermore, some mechanics may raise their labour rates to improve the profit margin for their work. Finally, and maybe most crucially, bringing your parts will void any warranty you may have with the repair.
As the workshop agreed to install the components you provided, even if the workshop does not guarantee the parts you purchased, the mechanic or workshop might be held legally accountable for the parts they put in your vehicle. Some workshops may hence be unwilling to provide such an installation service.
As such, while it can be cost effective, you may run the risk of having to spend more if the parts purchased are incompatible or of lower quality. Having a reliable workshop to turn to will take the headache and time of shopping for parts away. In addition, you have peace of mind knowing the warranties provided along with the replacement, and that your safety is well taken care of.

I had a tire leak caused by a puncture after driving over some construction debris. ECV Car Service Singapore could fix this up for me so I don't need to spend on a new tire. Friendly workshop! - Mr K.T. Liew, Redhill
My car aircon was not functioning and I was not sure what the cause was. I initially brought my car to the dealer workshop and was told the compressor is down. But the price quoted for the compressor replacement was so high. I then gave ECV Car Service Singapore a call, and the price turned out to be much lower, and quality of service good. Thumbs up! - Joel Tan, Bukit Batok
