Thread: Anyone recommend a high quality Audi mechanic in Melbourne?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone recommend a high quality Audi mechanic in Melbourne?

    Heya. Few of you may already have seen I'm looking to get back into an Audi and I'm looking for recommendations for a pre-purchase inspection as I'll probably be buying sight-unseen. Looking at B8.5 RS5s and RS7's in case that's relevant.

    Search so far returned:
    - www.volksaffair.com.au
    - www.germanserviceshop.com.au

    Thanks in advance!
    RS7 MY16 | Dynamic Pack | Black Styling Pack | Open to aftermarket ideas!

    These guys look after my 2015 RS5. They are not "cheap" but certainly cheaper than Audi. They know their stuff. Probably more Mercedes than Aud focussed but they look after all sorts of exotic cars. They have also done an exhaust swap (Capristo) and a light ECU and TCU tune on mine and car is running really well (noting of course in COVID times the car has really not had much chance to run anywhere!).

    If ya want mate I can help ya out. I worked on my RS5 for 3 years and learnt hell of a lot on what to look out for.
    The biggest problem your going to have is with the DSG clutch pressure solenoids and mechtronics. If its hitting the 100,00kms then your looking at doing a bit of work to get it to a good standard .

    Just a 3T mid rise scissor lift from Joels garage supplies.
    Was looking at selling it to get another one.

    If everyone’s keen to start a hoist thread? Iv been asked so many times about what its like to own scissor hoist in my garage. Might be time to do a full right up for anyone who’s in the market for one.
    I wouldn’t recommend the one I have but I fully recommend mid rise scissors if your in a standard home double garage

    The problem with post hoists is your concrete base. Provided you know what its comprised of, most time ya gotta dig it up and lay down a fresh slab. In no way is it safe to install a 2 post hoist in a standard garage floor. The base in the house Im at now is like not even 100mm thick. And pro comprises of that inferior Polly waffle crap lol
