    Can anyone recommend a workshop in PJ area that will fit parts supplied by myself? I tried a couple of places but they refused to install my parts :-(

    Thanks in advance

    Has anyone tried this workshop in Bandar Country Homes, Rawang?


    It's called Twin Power Autosports and is located near the entrance to the housing estate. I see quite a number of old Mercs and BMWs being serviced there and the owner Nathan is said to have some years working for BMW in Germany.

    Pls vet skills and pricing of service.

    I don;t know if the Hanara Auto mentioned in this forum refers to the same workshop that could have been renamed Twin Power now.

    Image links of workshop here:

    BTW, is the photo upload limit of 1.51KB for real? Forum attachments in 2017 should allow for up to 10-15MB upload limit per pic.

    R. Nathan runs Twin Power Autosports and used to helm M Power workshop in PJ. Heard pros and cons about his PJ workshop.


    willing to give him the benefit of the doubt…service my car today. so far so good.


    changed 6 spark plus, engine oil change and a few small stuff, came to RM306….


    bought the oil myself at PH Auto —castrol magnetic semi-syn at RM103 per 4l pack. Nathan used all 8 litres for my E36, saying the old oil was fully drained before new oil was added.

    ABS pump to be fixed next…..using used one ….all in plus labour and new brake fluid should come to about RM800.


    powered window bush RM18
    six spark plugs RM138
    Labour RM150

    TOTAL: RM306




    Twin Power Autosports is located at:

    Lot 16 & 17
    Jalan Batu Arang,
    Batu 23, Sg Bakau,
    48000 Rawang

    (or fire up Waze, lock into “Jalan Desa, Rawang”. The shop is a few hundred metres from the entrance of Jalan Desa.)

    This seems to be the Year for workshop relocations.


    The famed Naidu of Jalan Gasing, PJ and Bluegreen Motor Werks along Federal Highway have relocated.

    Naidu has his own shop in Jalan Klang Lama, not far from Jalan Templer, PJ.

    Bluegreen has shifted nearby to Sg Way just yesterday. Mike is the boss ......Nathan is no longer there. You won't find any signage on the workshop. Mike says the blue-green building itself is already striking and customers can't miss it.


    See image link for pix and locations.

    Can anyone recommend a BMW specialist, or a suitably experienced garage that can do a pre-purchase inspection in the Desa Tun Razak area?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    HI all,


    For Rawang side, here are two workshops to take your Bimmers to in 2018.


    Gopi of Serendah
    012-634 1796
    - call for address


    Ah Wah near Rawang toll plaza
    016904 3594
    - Near old NSK supermarket. If you are using the PLUS highway, exit at Raang toll, turn right and turn right again . On your left is NSK. Go further down and turn left, and take the first turn on the right into a row of old shop lots. Ah Wah’s shop is unsigned and somewhere in the middle of the row.
    - workshop pix: https://imgur.com/a/G5xXN


    Was referred to these two shops by Bavarian Auto stockist, which I found out has a branch in Rawang too, apart from a bunch of others such as the two in Segambut, KL and SS2, PJ.


    Gopi handles exclusively BMWs, while Ah Wah service all brands and uses Italian Eni engine oil by default. Ah Wah doesn’t mind if you buy your own oils for car servicing.


    Haven’t tried the workshops yet. Has anyone done so?


    Pls share your experience.

    Dont take my word for it, go and talk to the owner and u'll know.

    heard a lot negative news about this nathan from m power. now they operating twin power in rawang. despite this, decided to give benefit of doubt since he claims to work in bmw germany before. and my friend recommended

    my car was send in due to engine malfunction warning appeared. nathan say its due to water hose leaking and a number of hose and the water tank was replaced. engine oil cap was also changed. claims that its leaking too. guess what? the problem was never rectify at all despite being charge rm 3k! the moment i drove out, the error came out again. i was utterly disappointed n upset, he ask me to leave the car there again for them to troubleshoot. no way! god knows what other non faulty parts will turn faulty.

    i have send to another bmw specialist in batu caves. they diagnosed its due to faulty vanos and it only cost me less than 2k ! so its either his employees are not professional enough or nathan is a tiger which never change its stripes. continuing what he did in m power

    Sorry to hear about your predicament bro. but very true, a tiger never change its stripes. Hopefully your issues were rectified properly.
