  1. Just my opinion but I would take it to somewhere which has good feedback on here. If that happened to me I wouldn't let them touch my car again. Just write it off as experience, you learn from it. I found asking around and taking it somewhere else has sorted out my problems and often cheaper than what the people who caused the problem quoted! The tuners you used don't seem to know what they're doing it appears on the surface, they should have done some checks to make sure no alerts would come up after a period of time. I also would have asked for a drive with the tuner before handing over the payment. Had my BA XR6T and FG F6 XCAL tuned my Mick in Frankston. Sadly he's not plying his skills any longer as far as I know.
  2. Well this thread saved me again today. Had to change out my 2 headlights on the F6(well one but decided to do both to match) and it's really amazing what you forget Since I had the air filter out decided to K&N clean it in preparation for Snowy's cruise in November
  3. I've booked in Oriental Tumut for Friday night and Alpine Gables Jindy for Saturday night. I tried ringing Golden Age in Omeo and still hoping to reach them. Hope they aren't closed (due to lack of tourists). Shall let you know more. Don't leave it last minute to book accommodation though. Can start to get low vacancies closer in to that time of year. Well, went up to work event on Gold Coast last week and came home with COVID so I'm isolating until this Thursday. Was bound to happen with such a huge number of people attending from around Australia ... I'm sort of okay, it feels like it's going to take a while for me to feel like normal again, still got plenty of aches in joints and am still spluttering like the proverbial 2 stoke mower that needs servicing But at least I have a some immunity (but reading up a bit as you do in isolation someone said your more likely to get it again if you have had it which seems strange). Anyways, that should not deter people from coming along. I think COVID is going to be something that will be around for a long time and we will just need to take precautions and deal with it if it happens. You can't let it rule your life and how you live it

  9. Are you interested in joining us on the Snowy Cruise in November slash? k31th is keen. When I last spoke with Rab he was interested as well. I posted up in the NSW cruise section. I just realised that APS gave my car the full on beauty treatment down to my jock straps if you know what I mean - not only was it washed and shined, they blacked out my tyres as well ... the equivalent of a finger nail polish treatment

  11. That's it Puff, the name of the tool they use.
  12. I went to Automotive Performance Specialists (APS) for my servicing (33 New St, Frankston just around the corner from former PitLane which had an auction sign up). They did a fantastic job. Just a major service, but asked to tighten manifold bolts (several were loose so just as well) and changed out brake fluid (as well as the engine oil change). Umm the also went one step better and washed and vacuumed my car So big shout out to Jack Whittley there - willing to have a knowledgeable chat about stuff. Was pretty reasonable as well hip pocket wise, much less than what I expected and what I used to pay at PitLane (which is all I have to compare with). They can maintain an XCAL tune but prefer to tune with other laptop based tool but I forgot the name. Jack was telling me the other tool allows you to select the tunes with the steering wheel paddles and quick as which is pretty convenient when you need to go back to stock because there is no 98 RON nearby. There's also a tune that allows rolling acceleration, something about keeping the revs up until you need them activated by pressing some other re-purposed buttons (don't remember which ones). Rab put me onto them, some nice rides sitting in their yard and in their super clean workshop. Definitely will make the effort to go there again for my services. Nizpro does not do Servicing anymore, they focus more on speed boat motors now.
  13. About time to dust off the turbo cobwebs for our proposed Snowy Cruise later this year over Friday 18 - Sunday 20 November 2022 with add on day Mt Hotham on Monday 21 November 2022 for those interested. Check out past threads for all the fun and good yaks we had Those dates avoid cycling and aircraft events in Tumut and Jindabyne areas on 5 November and 11 November. More details to come but it will be pretty much same route as previous Snowy Cruises. Friday 18 November - Tumut Saturday 19 November - Jindabyne Sunday 20 November (for those interested) - Omeo Accomodation: Friday 18 November - Tumut (book accomodation at Oriental Hotel $95 - right next to pub fully refundable up to day before) (so driving to Tumut from your home on the Friday) Saturday 19 November - Jindabyne (book Alpine Gables $147 - pub on site and half refundable up to 20 Oct) (driving from Tumut to Jindy on the Saturday) Sunday 20 November (for those interested) - Omeo (book Golden Age - pub on-site but will check if they are opened first and find out pricing) (driving from Jindy either home on Sunday or driving to Omeo to stay in Omeo on Sunday night) Monday 21 November (driving from Omeo to home on the Monday) New this cruise is will be up to you to look out for your fellow cruise members - should you test positive or not feel good, please think of your fellow members and do the right thing Cruise list 1.

  14. Do you use DSR freaky? Anyone here still use Springy in Springvale? Anyone have a contact for Carby (tried to look them up but can't narrow the search down enough)? Inner South East area would be convenient but not essential. Like there must be some reputable places around Moorabbin?
