Default Accessories in Bangkok

Not sure if this is the right section - Can any of you name some shops in Bangkok that sell goodies for cars and motorbikes?

How familiar are you with BKK? If you know your way around Chinatown or the Ratchasawong area I can direct you to some shops.

What are you after?

Hardly familiar with Bangkok. Yes I know Sukamvit Road and that's about it. I am interested in small thingies like cell phone holders, etc for my Ikon. I need one of those bolt on steering knobs that fit on to the steering wheel for cruising. I am sure you know what I mean.

I also need fairing mounted mirrors for my Pulsar.

Basically to go into one of these shops and pick up what looks attractive. Just small stuff.

Thanks!

Right on Ramie. Its actually true, you can get these things cheaper here.
Coming to Sukumvit Road, it runs down miles and miles of Bangkok which is almost the entire city. For these things go to a Dept. store like MBK. I call it the MAnish MArket of Mumbai. You will find so many shops selling all these sort of knick knacks for you to buy and browse. Dont know if they are cheaper than India though!!

I have seen a few shops selling car accessories in chatuchak weekend market, though locating such stores might be a pain. In MBK there is one floor dedicated to cell phones and accessories (4th floor, I think) where you can get the holders etc. There is also one shop in Pantip plaza (forgot the name) selling electonic gadgets for car. You can check that out too.

MBK, Pantip etc can be more expensive than buying in India.

HID kits run a little expensive in BKK, believe it or not you can get the Chinese kits for cheaper in India.

Chinatown is on the other side of BKK along the Chao Praya and there are dedicated markets for Car/Bike parts. Doesnt make sense unless you want to buy larger quantities.

@Sumirish, I agree with the others, for the knick knacks just look in the malls or buy locally saves time, headache and sometimes even money

Car accessories are definitely cheaper in bangkok.Afriend who has just returned from bangkok purchased a 3 sets of hids for 9k,a momo replica steering wheel for 2k and momo atomik gear knob for 1.5k.
So compared to delhi,its a lot cheaper.

There is a fake chinese player in the market by the name of BOSCH not BOSCHE!, yea for sure its not the "BOSCH-Made in Germany" that we all know coz they do not manufacture aftermarket HID kits at all is what i've been told.

I am also told by a few friendly accessory shops in Milan that this is a Chinese brand which is registered as Bosch. Its definately misusing the brand-name of BOSCH (and sadly many people in the market who buy these actually feel they are buying the real thing) but then yes i have seen these chinese BOSCH HID kits in various different types of packaging ranging from as low as 5-6k for a kit which comes in a white cardboard type packaging all the way upto even 14k for a kit which comes in a chrome suitcase with chrome plated ballasts.

Cheers

Interesting, are those 3 HID conversion kits or 1 kit and 3 pairs of bulbs.

Try to post a pic of the kit or get the brand name if you can. Otherwise the prices seem ok.
