Thumbs down for Exhaust Technologies on Goodwood Road, got car back with mufflers at different angles, and a new muffler spewing it's insulation out. Had to seriously hassle to get anything done about it, not good, especially considering what they charged the insurance company for the work.
The faulty muffler was supposed to be replaced, but I have my doubts as it is a bit louder than the other one.

Exhaust Quick Fit Hornsby 2/27 King Rd Hornsby NSW 2077 www.quickfitmotorsport.com.au Ask for Don These guys did my exhaust and the BFI (this was before I wanted to get my hands dirty).
Tyres: JAX in Thornleigh is very well priced but you should check their work yourself - they don't. I got a new set of wheel nuts from them and they were too long. I got tyres from them at the same time so I didn't notice before I started driving (knocking from suspension when turning). Long story but fixed now.

Also, does anybody know of a good mechanic and electrician in the Cairns area for my 3 litre n/a. Plus, has anyone got info on where I can buy an owners manual and a workshop manual in English please. I think the 3 litre is a rare beast up here, but it is a lovely car and I would like to look after it as it deserves. I need to buy some things for it, like a dash mat and a cruise control. Any suggestions?

While we're at it- i dont think Precise Suspensions in WA deserves to be on that list - F**ked me around for 3 months just to get some headers made up and then he wanted about $200 more than he quoted me in the first place!
Its not just my experience there are a number of other people here who wont go back to them mostly for similar reasons so i say avoid!

Peter looks good. This will help tremendously. I don't know if this would help people out a bit more, but how about a few hyperlinks up the top to jump to the relevant State instead of having to scroll through the whole list?
