    Hi All,


    We're heading to Tassie for Christmas/New Year in the camper and will be touring around a fair amount. I think there are quite a few people doing the same.

    Hopefully it won't be needed but I'm looking to put together a list of recommended VW mechanics who might be able to help along the way. Premium membership of the NRMA will help but does not solve all problems

    I checked out Woz's awesome Kombi Services Map http://forums.kombiclub.com/showthread.php?t=22998 and while help in Sydney and Melbourne is well documented, there isn't much in between the two and there are only 4 listings for Tassie.

    If anyone can help update the view on the voids that'd be great!

    Cheers
    Dave

    Just a word of advice and you've more than likely thought about it - over the Christmas & New Year period a lot of the smaller VW shops shut down as it becomes sort of their annual holidays so it may be advisable to make a few calls and see if they are open over the period you're going to be in their neighborhood :p

    Liegh @ tyre power pro in hobart was awesome when our kombi needed a new engine it was nice to see 3 other kombi's in there as well, the engine was sourced from a guy in ulverstone near davenport can remember the name but im sure some of the tassie KC members would.
    Enjoy your trip Tassies awesome!!!
