Reliable and trustworthy workshop for your Bimmer ! Owner is very experienced with 20 years in PML . Very friendly , honest and upfront boss. Not intimating, unlike many other workshops. Was quoted for repair and replacement of parts at another BMW specialist workshop for $4000 but get all problems solved here at $1200. Not a budget workshop but a trustworthy one with reasonable price. This workshop can accommodate at least 8 bimmers and yet it is always full. - Frey Ng

My family dog decided to chew on my bumper and side skirt. Found 889 reviews online were reliable and good. Decided to give Cashin a try. Easily contacted him to discuss the different options and the cost assessment. Dropped the car off in the morning and was able to collect the car by 9PM. He got the job done with good quality in a day including a free car wash. - CP Chia

There are many BMW specialist workshops around and not many is as trustworthy.
I have gone to codewerk@Ubi for a pre-purchase evaluation for my X3 after reading the many good reviews but was damn disappointed. Even though i have made an appointment in advance, it was done by a fresh young mechanic instead of the seniors. Although he was detailed, he was unsure on many issues and hence he kept consulting his seniors for opinions.
After that, i was told by the workshop in-charge that the car is basically in a very good conditions but yet i need to replace many items including the spark plugs that was just a year old. Total quotation was near to $4000 which made me uncomfortable. As such, i decided to go for 2nd opinion and contacted Mr Terng after reading the many positive reviews here.

I was impressed that although the workshop has many bays, it was still overcrowded with bimmers. Better business than codewerk !
The boss was friendly and attentive in hearing me out . After checking , he clarified that many of the items as mentioned by codewerk are still in good conditions and one of them just need to be repaired rather than replaced ! Checked other items and highlighted the issues with options . Was not pushy !

It saved me a few $K and overall a comfortable experience ! Not a budget workshop but certainly a reliable one !!

I drove a red F20 116i and have recently changed to another brand. However I thought I should still leave this review.

I had been going to Cashin's workshop for the entire 3.5 years that I drove the F20, and I only have good words for this place.

Cashin explained what needed to be replaced, and also in a cost effective manner. Down to earth and approachable, and you don't get that intimidating feeling sometimes at other workshops.

I did not do any price comparison with other workshops, but the peace of mind and service provided, in my opinion, more than made up for it.

Spoke to Cashin and he has very good knowledge of my X3. After servicing, I notice my car was smooth and more torque!

He has good knowledge of BMW cars and in the most cost effective way, recommend you the best solution taking into consideration how many more years your car has left. Superb. Going there from now onwards.

To cut a long story short , I have an e90 325 and my regular mechanic said I needed a new ecu as I have an engine fault.. Was quoted $2800.. The previous month I had just spent $2300 on a service with same guys. So now alarm bells are going off in my head.Im thinking if I need a second opinion. So after a few phone calls I recommended 889... BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE... Mr Terng is helpful, honest, knowledgeable, explains everything that you need to know and is very patient.I explained all the noises that can be heard (which the other shop could not hear) and he resolved all of them. He took my car and slowly and efficiently checked all through the engine to find the faults. He managed to resolve the ecu without changing it as this was not the root cause but a faulty valvetronic motor (which the other shop said was fine) . Changing the ecu would not have resolved anything as the fault would have come back.
Now i have a wonderful smooth and very quiet car. And I didn't pay anywhere near that $2800 .
So if you want to find a diamond in all of these workshops please look no further! Thank you Mr Terng and ur team, see you soon and may your business grow. What a great guy!

I drive a BMW E66. Over the last 6 months I have spent substantial time and $$$ on the air suspension that couldn't be fixed by 4 different workshops until I read the reviews on 889 and visited the workshop. The first workshop was JSP Autowerks that replaced my air suspension and many other related parts but the car just could not be driven like any normal car. Mechanic insist nothing was wrong with the car even after a test drive. Worst, he said all BMWs drive this way. Dishonest or incompetent? Well he doesn't even know the ride height can be calibrated easily (which I know now) so I brought the car to Juzz for Cars which took 4 hours to manually re-calibrate (which I know now that it needs only 15 mins to auto-calibrate). It was also disappointing that this workshop doesn't have the expertise to recognise that the car still had an abnormal (harsh and unsettling) drive after the re-calibration. The next workshop was Technic Automotive. They tried to help and I did some repair works to the transmission and door stopper. The only thing related to the suspension was a change of the battery to a 110 ah sealed lead-acid. I supposed workshop like this and Juzz for Cars are too 'big' and commercialised to afford the bandwidth to look into diagnosing the issue beyond using the BMW diagnostic scan tool. The 4th workshop was Ready Auto. This workshop proclaimed that there is no BMW issue they cannot fixed and when I tried to describe the symptoms in more details, they stopped me and said they know what to do. As it turned out, after leaving the car there for 3 days they told me I have to change to a 90 ah AGM battery. Of course that didn't fixed the car. By this time, it was already obvious that there was a parasitic draw on the battery that caused the air in the suspension insufficiently filled by the air compressor. I checked back with Ready Auto to see if they had done any diagnostic on parasitic draw but instead of friendly advice or an apology, I got an earful from them that I did not communicate the 'real' issue with them.

Didn't mean to be long-winded but just hope all can learn from my costly experience. 889 listened to my 'stories' and I left the car with them on a monday. On wednesday night 10.30 pm I received a call from Terng telling me he has just found the component that it is drawing current when the car is in sleep mode. That is the kind of passion and hardwork that I have given up hope that it exist in Singapore. That is the kind of expertise on electrical issues which I didn't expect given the relatively young age of the cars in Singapore. He fixed my car on thursday. Subsequently, I went back on at least 4 occasions to reprogram and recalibrate the suspension at no extra charge. This workshop deserves more than 5 stars.

I have done the balancing plus rotation.
This shop I went to is indeed professional and good.

First he balance the tyre with the old weight on. Measure, scrap off old weights, put on new weights and balance again.

Mr Terng did the same for all 4 tyres. He also rotate the tyres for me and mentioned my rear tyres thicker, so he changed it to the front. He used a device to measure.

A good 40 mins.

I chose this shop based on previous reviews. Before I proceed, I have called him and enquired on my problems regarding my ride. Without any hesitance, he shared on a few possibilities what could be the issues. He even asked me what time I will be proceeding over so that he can accommodate on the schedule and not to let me wait.

Bought my first car and was recommended by a friend to have a checkup and servicing before going on the road. The mechanic provided excellent service and was willing to share with me the parts and price for each worn-out parts that needs to be replaced. He gave a detailed inspection of my car and did not hard-sell any products. Lucky to have someone to share his knowledge for an amateur driver like me. Recommended.

This shop provides a sincere and honest servicing / repairs with a patient approach. The knowledge sharing and meticulous workmanship is especially important to a new driver like me with limited knowledge and experience on cars. The friendly customer service will make your day if your car is giving you a hard time and you will drive off with a sense of assurance / confidence that your car was in good hands. Practically everything pertaining to your car can be discussed and carefully explained before / while servicing and repair. Highly recommended if you prefer a shop which will service your car like it's own and not rushing to finish a job!
