    Hello people, can anybody recommend some good Proton Service Centre around Klang Valley? Not authorised service centres as this is the 1k service.

    I'm around Old Klang Road but there's only 1 authorised SC there and i heard one of their branch messed up few cars, I don't mind going abit distance as I'll take a day off.

    I'm thinking about Puchong SC but don't know any recommendations about them, what about PJ 3S, Glenmarie?

    I bought a 4L mobile super 2000 10W-40, but the Persona booklet says 20W-50, but many people say it's just recommendation so can i safely use 10W-40 without voiding warranty?

    Also can I do the 1k service around 900km as I use it mainly in city drive just wanna make sure I'm not changing the oil too soon. Is it good to do the 1k service after 1000km?

    With so many Proton users I think it would be nice to have a Proton Service Centre Review thread. Though they may not differ much but even a bucket or bad apples might have some not so bad one.

    I'm around Old Klang Road but there's only 1 authorised SC there and i heard one of their branch messed up few cars, I don't mind going abit distance as I'll take a day off. there is no branch service centre around that area...nearest is puchong jaya. maybe its a dealer svc ctr....

    I'm thinking about Puchong SC but don't know any recommendations about them, what about PJ 3S, Glenmarie? puchong sc, section 13 pj, jln 227 and glenmarie....u can visit them at yr convenience....so far it still depends on individual, some says good some says sucks....so very subjective....best is to try it out....

    I bought a 4L mobile super 2000 10W-40, but the Persona booklet says 20W-50, but many people say it's just recommendation so can i safely use 10W-40 without voiding warranty?is it a fully sync or semi syn...if fully, not recommended to use coz it will cause noises from the tappets. the best is go for semi sync....

    Also can I do the 1k service around 900km as I use it mainly in city drive just wanna make sure I'm not changing the oil too soon. Is it good to do the 1k service after 1000km? plus minus 800km is ok for every service interval.

    With so many Proton users I think it would be nice to have a Proton Service Centre Review thread. Though they may not differ much but even a bucket or bad apples might have some not so bad one. its ok to have but the discussion should be in proffesional manner and not with intention to condemn or humiliate anyone...do it in a rationale way....

    Are the Glenmarie good? If good i will call them up. But can bring my own oil & refuse all those non essential stuffs?

    I think Super 2000 10W-40 is semi-synthetic while Mobil 1 is full synthetic?

    I already bought the oil, and was told by many user that we can bring our own oil, but i never asked whether there's any difference with Proton SC or Authorized SC.

    from what i heard the first few oil change during the running in period requires thicker oil so that it doesnt spoil the engine or something from what i remembered as the guy from proton told me so...anyway heard that the service centre in mutiara damansara is not bad...as i'm about to send my neo in for some wiring problem...couldnt get my car started...=(

    from wat i heard...only some authorized service centre only can use oil dat u bring.
    those main proton sc will void yr warranty on engine if anything happen.
    reason is dat, proton does not know if the oil is genuine or imitation.
    if u want to be on the safe side (able to claim warranty) use the sc parts n oils.
    just everytime u came down to sc...always tell em u on a tight budget.
    if not...u sure kena chop lol...
