hahaha..i feel kinda bad bcoz the teenage/younger guy who works there is really nice! But the older guy seems to take advantage of people..

I ended up getting back late on the 2nd day. I asked if he used new gaskets but apparently its not necessary? 'only when the head gasket blows?'.. well i herd different anyways, the car felt okay when i first got it, apart from a whole bunch of smoke coming out around the uppipe..?? then after driving it for a whileV (1hr approx here and there) the same 'whoosing/fluttering' sound came back and my boost got a lot weaker + i started getting some highish temps that caused my heater/aircon to malfunction, similar to when i had a hole but not quiet as bad... any ideas/suggestions?

I am very curious to where these guys put the Temp sensor from the original upppipe.. seeing as the grimmspeed one has no spot for it and the fact that i don't have a CEL if they removed it completely and i doubt they deleted the code if i did.

btw total price was $360.. 3x the amount quoted
and total time was 2 full days.. Twice as long as quoted
oh.. and still not fixed.

Gonna call em tomorrow and see what happens..
But Bottom line. Don't go to CK!

Is there any other places near Rocko that are cheaper than Sik Em Wrex? I just got quoted $1600 for my 100,000 major service...

Parents will make me take it to some shitty falcodore service joint otherwise... Driving up to Perth isn't really an option as I can't get transport back.

Do it yourself. Catch the train.

Just got a quote back from Race Torque for $1000. Apparently they only charge more if other shit needs replacing (tensioners, rotors, brake pads etc). SeW must have quoted the service plus EVERYTHING being replaced by the look of it which is good to know.
Otherwise I'm getting made to have some call out guy come to my house, do a standard $1000 service, put home brand oil in my car and leave.

Gotta love having 'rents who know nothing about cars.

Stechnic - Next to the train line. Easy to get home to Rocko I imagine.

Jim Hall - Bluestar - Mobile Subaru service specialist.

Pick whichever one works out the best for you. I personally use Stechnic as they are great blokes too.

Sent an e-mail to Stechnic Thought that was in Malaga for some reason :S That's a hell of a lot easier.

Is Jim Hall expensive? Or have an e-mail? I would call to get a quote but I'm too sick at the moment coughing constantly (fun to hear on the phone).
