That is a loaded question...Their oil is OK...But are you doing the change yourself with their oil or are you asking if PTT service centres are OK..

I am doing the oil and filter change myself yes. Buy on Lazada. Thanks.

Does that work out cheap when folk out there can do that stuff very cheap.

 

I had 6 litres of synthetic oil and filter done on my Vigo at B-Quik for 1,290bht..

Semi syn and filter was 990bht...

Believe it or not, some dealerships are reasonable for oil prices.  I went to my local Toyota dealer for a fuel filter (D2.5), and also bought their Toyota semi synthetic 10w30 6l+1l for 1000b

I am a Luddite.

Call me old fashioned, but why would anyone contemplate buying 6-7 litres of car oil on Ebay/Lazada/whatever?

 

Ya know, why not wander down nonchalently to your nearest auto factors shop, either on foot, bicycle, moped, motorcycle or car, peruse the variety of oils on display, put your cash down on the counter, and return home.

 

Ya know, it ain't rocket science.............

Because of convenience. You order exactly what you want, hopefully at a good price, and have it delivered within a couple of days to your door, pay COD if you you choose.

Then roll about the floor changing it like a Boy Racer, when B Quick can do it same price.Even Dealerships can match these days. Totally Stupid.

 I used to buy my own oil and filter in Australia and take it to a local service station to drain and replace, for which they would charge me $20. I refused to take it to the dealership where they wanted $450 just to tick a lot of boxes.

Yeah, strange concept I know, but here's a heads up, there's such a thing as online shopping now. Join the 21st century.

That's cool but we would need to buy axle stands to do an oil change safely, where is the logic in that when one can get an oil change done cheap whilst watching having a smoke...😋

Maybe the OP likes to tinker, who knows, but it's his car.  Depending on the clearance, axle stands might be unnecessary. I never used them for the many oil changes I did on my old bangers.

Used to drive it up the kerb in the UK or onto a  couple of planks, satisfying to do your own and then at least you know its been done properly, nothing over tightened etc

And here's a heads up.

People like you are, and will be the death of the high street.

Out of town hyper supermarkets have replaced butchers, grocers, bakers.

Town centres now are either dead with zero character (pubs closing too due to lack of footfall) or the above businesses have been replaced with charity shops, S/H clothes shops or betting agents.

 

 Back in my youth every town had an ironmongers, family run for generations, with a bloke wearing a brown warehouse coat who had everything you wanted with a choice of brand name and price, and knew exactly where everything was. Nowadays you have to drive to your nearest city and nameless Box store, ask a spotty oik who knows nothing and is not interested in anything he sells, and you have a choice of no name foreign crap.

I, for one, miss the old days and proper specialist shops, with knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff, and i, for one, enjoy a thriving high street with a multitude of different shops.

And you and your internet shopping have helped to kill it.

 

Hey, i dig the internet specialist ordering of special parts nobody locally sells, like my measuring equipment and tooling for my machine shop, or motorcycle parts for my Triumph and my Moto Guzzi, and my Yamaha trials bikes, all stuff that has to come from afar,

but....

buying basic shIt like groceries, consumables etc is not one of them! Or 6 litres of common motor oil.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHOPS!

That reminds me of a shop in North Wales, my uncle told me this and true...

 

Bloke walks into the hardware and asked for a mouse trap, the sales bloke replied.."How big is the mouse"....😂

I think your comment would be better directed at the multi-nationals, big supermarket chains etc. Bit late to be turning back the clock.

Or perhaps Lazada & Amazon et al.

I'll quote you again;

Technology has already taken 90% of jobs humans used to do. Who you going to blame? You wouldn't be ordering parts on the internet without progress, can't pick and choose. The parts (at least Triumph) are probably outsourced to China, do you worry about the people who lost their jobs?

What I can do myself I do myself in this country, call it experience. I don't do it to save a few baht because money isn't an issue. I'm not a cheap Charley and I don't care about money. So next time try to answer the question instead of giving your stupid opinion. By the way I was a car mechanic when I was young.

So what's the OP planning on doing with the old oil?

Drink it, after I can drink a lot of beer and no hangover the day after I experienced before.
