    Regarding the renewal of registration and passing [passing what?], we need to replace some
    spare parts, and to do some urgent maintenance work as well.
    You don't replace spare parts on a truck. You replace old parts for new 'spare parts'. They aren't spare when they're on the truck.
    You don't need "as well". "Need to [replace ... and do ...]"

    So, I took a quotation from the authorized dealer in order to carry out this work; the quotation amount is $0000.00. That's cheap!

    Under the circumstances, I would request you to look into this matter and advise me
    That's grammatical.

    The original uses too many unnecessary words. But it's essentially correct.
