    Great resource Woz.
    Can you add my mechanic? Been working on VW's for over 40 years. He has worked on 2 of my type 3's and two kombis always made them run great. Currently rebuilding my 1800.

    Hi all,
    How does this get updated?
    The VW Performance Centre in Tuggeranong, ACT, only works on newer Dubs and wont touch older Kombis etc

    I'm pretty sure Woz does it all manually. Being a man of leisure and all...

    Hi Woz,

    Can you add a recommendation for The Beetle Exchange, 7 Whyalla St, Fyshwick, on my behalf? Took my new pride and joy out there on Tuesday and they were fantastic. I dealt with Michael, could not be happier, and they were very down to earth about costing and keeping it affordable for me. I'll be taking Dorothy back there any time she needs TLC or servicing and I'm in Canberra.

    Thanks! Joanne

    I've used the Kombi Shop (it's in Doonan) and i wouldn't recommend it. The work was fantastic (when i got it back eventually 5 months after the first estimate). also, they dont finish their jobs, i had to go back in several times for them to do things that should have been done the first time (they took my dash off to line the kombi and didnt reconnect the fuel gauge, speedo or horn. lucky i caught that one soon.) also, theyre a bit overpriced. not recommended.

    Hi - Does anyone know of a Dean (surfer dude) who used to fix vw's in Ocean Grove - apparently he shut up shop - is he still around? and does he still do repairs?
    Thanks

    wanting to update information-
    Alan Atkins of Stokers siding garage is now at Pottsville (9 Elizabeth Street)
    Still highly recommended for parts and mechanical (0431842569)
    works under the name Stokers VW or something similar, and I think the
    premises at stokers is now a gallery.

    Another service I used this last weekend- I called Mark Pell of Nambucca Heads whose name I had found somewhere here- He no longer does VW stuff, but his son Luke does somewhere around that region( not sure where, but I think it is no longer Nambucca).

    I hope this helps. lach
