    Your assumption on a $500 is a 0% margin selling price, brother. Business is not charity..... I suggest u directly find aftermarket HU and don't complain too much... There is a competition but if u insist the "toyota" HU, you have to pay the price

    GTO, technically BM earns 300% margin but remember this is only the gross profit (GP) This $20K GP / unit is to cover the cost of salesman commission & salary + "X" number of free servicing (sales dept paid to service dept) + showroom facilities built & maintenance costs (so that you enjoyed the gallery and test drive) + personnel salaries that greeted you at the entrance and served you coffees + personnel that handling all the paper work behind the scene (administration from factory to SG, accounts, warranty issue) + fulfill the parts stock commitment each model + workshop equipment, facilities & technicians salaries. At end the net profit margin would be less than 50% from GP. A $20k GP / unit is quite standard across AD regular car brands in Singapore. Luxury brands can fetch up around $40k or more depends on the segment. Remember we are living in world most expensive country, and most of people want best service. All these come with a price. If you feel this is unfair for an AD to earn $20k from you, I suggest you can look for a reliable PI to get your RAV4, their selling price definitely lower than AD, some more it is JDM. Give and take, both sources has pros and cons.

    The HU we seen at the showroom is unique, it is not the ordinary 2-DIN type. This flat back HU has become common for Toyota USA and Europe markets but Asia and Japan still stick on 2-DIN type. If BM take the LCD w/ carply HU directly from factory, it will increase the OMV alot and hard to maintain at competitive selling price. Most of the Toyota models BM ordered from factory are without HU and locally installed the OEM HU. Flat back HU is uncommon in our market and have to source this maybe from Europe/USA, price is always the main factor. Flat back HU JDM/ASIA 2-DIN HU

    just replaced Thai made PS4 205/50R16 in JB, RM380/pc. You guys can google Uliang Enterprise Sdn. Bhd. Call to confirm the price before heading down this tire shop. And avoid the free alignment because ended up they will ask you to replace chamber, alignment also not that straight though. Remember deal for tires only! They are the cheapest in town because they are stockist.

    Never use European made one in a hot climate country, side wall is softer and not suitable for long journey in our local climate.
