I am amazed by how many enthusiast here whom are so concern about a few bucks difference in the retail price of the oil that you are using.

Explain to me, is RM3 so big comparable to your time driving around to another dealer, find another parking.. or simply got pissed and angry the guys didnt want to give you that Rm3 discount?

Distributor will give to dealer a special discount price. And normally there will be a MRSP. In every country you go, as end user, you will be sold this price. In Malaysia, unfortunately, this ethic of business is broken. Most people think they are so buddy with their mechanics that they are oblidgated to be given discount. My friends... if you are his buddy.. please remember what ever ringgit and cents they are making is from the buffer from distributor and dealers price. Why you want to make their life difficult if you are his buddy?

If you are not his buddy, why on earth should he give you discount?

Come on guys, i am not a fan of steep inflation, but believe me ... your effort and the time spend on this discussion is worth more than the RM3 discount.

One more reason the price is up is due to crude price up. Who drove it up?? you and me as a consumer. no one to blame but ourselves.


ROY!! you gonna thank me for this. :)


Ciao..

Unfortunately these are all consumer mind set. If you have studied consumer behavior, this is very normal.

For example, how many ppl actually compare coke price between Tesco, Giant, Carrefour...? believe me, many does. Coke cheaper Rm0.3 per 24 pack will create a huge crowd. Why, because it is cheaper.. no matter how cheap the different is, and many consumer who think one place selling cheap coke will also have many other products that are cheap as well. This apply to the ppl shopping for cheap lube, may also get cheap filter, spare parts at the same place..etc.

if all ppl think like you.. world peace already. no more price war. heh

wa.. the reason i ask is that i just wanna buy the oil and not try to start price war between supplier... for me to go out there and find parking and all quite a hassle.. i dun mind if i didn't get the rm3 discount who said that i gonna be angry if i didn't get rm3 discount... since when ask for best price nowdays consider sumtin to be ashamed of?? there are many reason that one can offer diff price for the same product(location,pricing strategy..etc etc etc) the aim here is to get both party to agree on the price(bargain).. my bad my bad for spoiling this thread....

im currently using the Q8 advance 10/40. It feels much better than my previous pertonas synthium. The synthium feels good but once you hit around 3k km, it starts to feel heavish and sticky. The Q8 currently lets my engine rev better at higher rpms.
maybe because the weight is less. The petronas I was using is a 15/50. Now im using a 10/40.
