Default Time to find a new Mechanic - advice appreciated.

Hey Everyone,

I have a WRX 97" Club Spec & a 07 Impreza.

I live in Palmyra (towards Fremantle way) & I would like advice on where I should take my cars. I'm not looking for any mod work. Just want to maintain the two cars at the moment, and get my 97" WRX a bit of TLC all round and a bit of a performance tune up etc..

I've come across Cypher Industries & XSPEED in the forums listed in O'Connor. Though, am a bit nervous moving to someone else. Any advice would be appreciated - really want someone I can trust, and won't rip me blind.

Any advice would be appreciated.

That was the thread I found before.

The two in O'Connor are the closest to me. As they are on the list, I would assume they're popular with the forum users. Would be keen to hear from people who have used them, and which workshop would be better suited to what I need?

Cypher Industries / XSPEED

Popular one here would be STechnic.
Having personally used them, I can't really fault them.
Just a pity that they are a bit far from your location, only have to drive 20ish kilometers myself to visit them

+1 for STechnic in Maddington. I drive down from Innaloo and it is thoroughly worth it. Plus the long drive home gives me chance to check everything is alright and test out the new mods. Well worth it IMO.

Because the 21.2km ( according to google maps ) is worse than your 20ish kms?
Have made the trip from Palmyra to STechnic plenty of times. Probably so many times that they now take it there for me
A+++ recommendation.

stechnic,


they did a gearbox teardown/troubleshoot to find a problem and then swapped my transfer case gears in a day basically.

Plus they are excellent guys, really friendly and welcome to chat about possibilities of performance etc for the cars.

also there was a small prob with some parts something they had installed, they offered to fix it for free when i took it back.

couldnt recommend them any more, best mechanics ive met

I live in Butler (40km north of the city) and I still drive to Maddington to go to STechnic. I do this for a reason.
