Some good prices on batteries for your boats and vehicles:

Eastern Battery Service on Lavender street

They also carry 5 liter jugs of distilled water for topping up.

Grouchy Old Expat-

Regarding the import of Japanese parts, you may want to ask around a bit.

There is a huge amount of used Japanese car, truck, and marine engines flowing into Singapore (and all over the world). The Japanese government has long had a very tight set emission standards. It means scrapping a huge number of cars within 10 years. With a population of over 125 million people, well, that's a lot of engines.

I stopped by a yard in woodlands last week and they where unpacking 3 containers of engines, fresh off the ship. Check out the shops, they export the parts all over the region. Great recycling!

Your right, there is also a lot of COE scrapped vehicles and parts here as well.

Anybody need info on new diesel engines here feel free to msg me, I imported one a few months ago, and went through all the paperwork.
