Singapore breaker yards?

Postby QRM » Wed, 09 Jun 2010 10:33 am

Using my best attempt at the Ah Beng accent I just called everyone of these folks on this list http://www.sgcarmart.com/directory/list ... crap+yards but had no luck

Trying to find a part for the interior of my car. I will be selling it in 2 weeks and the missing trim takes 2 months to order from Japan.

So if any one is passing by or hangs out in a breakers yard here or near by JB and notices a 2006 Toyota Alphard sitting there can you drop me a line.

Thanks

You should be summarily executed for owning an Alphard

They have a 7 and 8 seat option, ours was an 8 seater but I removed one of the seats for a large fridge/coffee table. I misplaced the brackets that bolt the seat into the floor tracks so cant put the seat back. I suppose I could use super glue :lol:

Also have to take out the furry dice, shag pile carpet and chrome chain link steering wheel. I may leave the ceiling mounted mirror ball.

Sorry for intruding, what is the fuel consumption like in litre per 100 km.
Does this comes with diesel and petrol option ?
What is the wheel size 19 or 17 inch ?
Compare this to Previa or Estima, how do you rate ?

I am driving a LR Disco 3 now, thinking of changing. I had a look at the website, pretty impressive piece of wheels

I have no idea its a 2.4, i suspect it wont be brilliant having the aerodynamics of a brick.

As far as I know its just petrol 2.4 or 3.0 there was a hybrid version but has been discontinued, the latest version has a 3.5l V6 option

What is the wheel size 19 or 17 inch ?

I have no idea but I can confirm its round, I heard people who stuck larger rims on have regretted it as it spoils the silky smooth ride, and lets be honest Alphards are not exaclty doughnuts and drifting material, comfort is the name of the game.

Two chums that used to have previa have now both bought Alphards, you get these MPV for space and comfort, and the alphard is the top dog in both those categories though there is a sacrifice for the space it does have problems getting into certain carparks.

I am driving a LR Disco 3 now, thinking of changing. I had a look at the website, pretty impressive piece of wheels.

I had a range rover in London while its a lovely car they call it the No.1 off road vehicular for a reason, with only 40k on the clock it spent most of it time off the road in a workshop. (Thats for sale as well storage cost have exceeded its value) I assume most of the service technician at Toyota dont have much to do apart from changing pedals. We like it so much getting another one here and looking to pick another one up in KL.
