Default Sic em rex racing opinions

Hi guys,

As I'm down mandurah way I was wondering if anybody can provide any feedback on Sic em rex racing.

I searched and didn't see anything.

A google search brings up some props from Nissan owners.

I'm focused mainly on any feedback regarding the quality of their vehicle servicing? Eg, top quality oil always used..total honesty and reliability ..etc..

I've heard great things about Stechnic and the fact that you can always count on the the quality of their servicing...

That's what I'm after in a mechanic closer..( and more convenient) to home.

Any opinions would be great...

Cheers.

Give him a try.

If he's a Tim, he can't be that bad.

No thanks - 2 cars I've owned were serviced by them. Basing on evidence of past work - just no.

Replaced a maf & reset the cars Power Fc "to allow it to re-learn" the new Maf......lol. Map wiped.

I'm in the same boat as Rossco took my car there and they adjusted my Microtech via hand controller on one of my cars while doing a routine service saying they tuned it up as well and fucked my map costing me a retune at Rotormotion. WTF!.
I'm around your area and Stechnic isn't that much of a drive and definitely worth the hassle of a little time . At least you have the back up in knowing they have 100% positive feedback

Hey thanks guys,

Sounds about 50/50...

I do not like the idea of 'experimental tuning', at all..if that is the general idea of the complaints...

Your right 'amtrapid' Stechnics not too far to of a drive...but a real pita for me if I need to leave the car there...

BUT having the confidence of knowing a place does the right job every time outweighs all other inconvenience...

Decision made. ..

With such easy access to opinions and past experiences on forums like this, service providers really need to ensure they maintain the absolute highest standards...on every single job....

Gone are the days of not being too bothered because unsatisfied customers would unlikely cross paths.

Now reputation is absolutely everything..even more so than before the internet age..and a simple question or opinion posted on here, can easily see many thousands of dollars in work redirected...

Inversely though....we as forum users have a responsibility not to create or spread lies or slander that can see a honest reputation in tatters....

A fine line...no doubt..
