Car Business Recommendations

Hey just want to start a hopefully permanent thread that is similar to this I found except for Commodores not soarers. http://planetsoarer.com/mechanic/index.htm
Thinking that it's a good idea how it will all help us to improve who we can and can't go see in Adelaide for best prices, always in stock, friendly service, etc for our cars. We don't want to be another Shaun Luckhurst(see link) paying more than he should have or Tom Burgan finding someone in the workshop thrashed his car. I checked with the rules of the site and as long as we don't abuse the work shops involved it's fine e.g this f n coke smoker ripped me off biggest pricks ever. If we get a group of hits where people recommend, then we know thats a good business in Adelaide. If we keep it on topic this should be excellent....
Is this thread a good idea?

Anywayz I'd like to recommend Stream Line exhausts because the prices are fair and does a excellent job everytime. Also one of my two fav secondhand dealers Just Commodore spares? on Nth East Rd near Holden Hill cop shop good prices compared to most. Haven't found anyone too bad as of yet.

I reccommen D'n'T in town i had my exhaust fitted there. They picked my car up from malvern did the job and dropped it back to me, and even picked it up and dropped it off again the next day to put a bigger resi on it as it was to loud at no charge.

There price was fair and cheaper then a few others

Aussie Discount Mufflers on Port Rd, pretty cheap prices and awesome service, always willing to adjust things they do afterwards free of charge, Best Head Jobs (i think the name is) LOL seriously for head work, speak to Blake from memory you can get some awesome head work done for cheap cash price, A+K universal torque converters in Welland, cheap cash prices - the blokes been in the business for 30 years, he knows his stuff. Rowell and Searle transmissions in Kings court city, got my trans rebuilt + shift kit for 950, originally 1450 (cash price). SA diff services? on Obrien St city, speak to Tim or Craig, more so Tim. Good prices and excellent work. Also Auto Carburettor Services on Norfolk Rd Marion, the bloke to speak to is Alan, been in the business and knows his stuff. Instrument place on the Parade Norwood, the bloke once wrote me a letter saying my speedo might be out (used to be bouncy) wich got me out of a fine hehe. Thats all for now but as I remember I'll keep posted.

Motor Traders Kilburn.

If it's new, genuine (and not 10 years obsolete)...They've got it. Usually keen to do some discount too.

They must be sick of me going in every Saturday going "Have you got *part X* for a VL?" lol

Have seen some good specials there lately too. Internationals for $200 a rim

THR developments - 8240 1767 - did a great job tuning my car when i first got it, and have got a huge amount of expertise on commodores.

Advance Auto Salvage - anyone need anything second hand go to them 1st, 1st thing I thought when I saw they were at Lonsdale was that it is way out of my way and that there cant be much different to any other spares. was proven wrong. if i need anything i go to them.

someone has to name locky (jetvl086)as an exceptional engine builder dont they?:P wayne?
