    Possible to narrow it down somewhat. Defu lane looks quite big

    I used to go to one in Kranji Industrial Estate and some in Woodlands Industrial Estate too. However this was about 6 - 7 years ago. Don't ask me the exact location, can't remember. Do some homework - look up the Yellow Pages!

    Still have, it's on the main road after the railway tracks. It will see lotsa sign saying '杀车'. But that kind not as 'rugged' as those in Defu lane. If you are looking for those 'true' scrapyards with those magnetised crane and metal everywhere, Defu lane it's still the choice.

    sungei kadut has many. You can actually walk into some and go parts shopping. They even have racks of different engines on sale ranging from BMWs/Mercs to Hondas. Old spoilers, rims, headunits, etc..

    another scrapyard i came across years ago was along penjuru road, near where the barges unload stones and gravel for construction sites. dunno if its still there.

    Bro, perhaps u can post what you are looking for. It's easier to direct this way. Coz for cars under 5 yrs old, it will be harder to get as most are exported rather than scrapped.

    Cheers
