Hope you don't mind me calling you Isi, but Daniel is right. Sports & luxury is the place to go to.

Actually went to Sports and Luxury for a service recently - it's a bit out of the way and considering car is overheating it's a bit far. I live in Footscray so I hope there's someone a bit closer to the city...if not, is it worth me just going to Toyota dealership??

I changed the thermotat in my friends 92 magna the other day. It came out in three bits. I use to change the thermostat in my cars every year when I flushed the cooling system. Whats a couple of dollars compared an engine rebuild.

The mechanic at Le Mans gave me a scare by saving that he thought that there was a gasket problem!!! Turned out to be just a small crack in the airbox (cylinder 7 & 8 not compressing fuel as it should) - needs to be sealed up (they've sealed it up with electrical tape at the moment but obviously needs a longer term solution).
