Im not sure if Lew does general mechanical work at his new workshop, could be worth dropping him a line, although he is on the gold coast. Another place on the gold coast that seem to know their soarers is Adrenalin imports, they gave my TT a going over when my cousin was buying his soarer off them, and they seem pretty good. What is it that you need done? you may find that you can do it yourself, and save yourself the cash

Has anyone here ever had their Soarer serviced at Superior Automotive? I am planning to get my Soarer fully serviced there and they told me that they have done hundreds of Soarers, so I'd imagine that one of those must be a member here (either that or there are more Soarers in Brisbane that I imagined :P)
My car was always serviced at superior by the previous owner. A flick back through the bills show that they are NOT cheap and also the did a massive dodgey on him in regards to a fault the car had at the time. A good place to go would also be Tuff Toys at love st in bulimba. When you ring, ask for Wayne. The have had LOTS of experience with soarer being that they are importers and servicers of imported cars. They also have an on-board diagnostics tool that will read all of your cars ailments and settings in the blink of an eye. I would highly recommend anyone to have their car serviced by him.
Well, if anyone is interested, I have another mechanic and auto-electrician to add to the dodgy list. Avoid The Chequered Flag and Sterling auto electrics at Albion.
I just got my Soarer back from them (they are my warranty companies designated mechanic) and besides taking two weeks to replace the cam sensors, I got the car back missing a number of bolts for the top engine covers, the guard in the boot for the fuel system still removed (with my water bottle in the back bouncing around next to my fuel tank, yay) and the wierdest thing, now my tape player doesn't work.
Heh, and of course the best part, I took the car there because its supposed to be under warranty, but I had to pay the mechanic cash because apparently my 1 year warranty is already up (after 3 months ).
Nothing like just paying $600 bucks, getting your car back, driving it home then finding out the unprofessional state it was left in
Live and learn I guess, at least my Soarer is back on the road again
