    hi guys,

    i cant find it, but i thought there was a service schedule thread. mine is hitting up around 130,000km now and looking to do the recommended service (already done the 100,000km full service (water pump, belts etc) at around 90,000km)

    can someone point me in the right direction on what needs doing at around 130,000km. im considering getting quotes from workshops once i know what work is needed just to drop it off for a week to get everything done and dusted before it gets some new paint + wheels

    I have had my old broken diff replaced by Nick Ashwin of N. A. Auto Sports and engineering Slacks Creek Qld I am very impressed by the knowledge and skill they showed. It is a very good business. Because of some mistakes made by past mechanics who worked on my cars, I get a bit edgie when i give my baby to some to fix, but I will certainly go back there without hesitation for a new exhaust, timing belt change and a tune and then my Galant will be fully restored and ready to show.

    Have they had much experience tuning vr4's if not I would recommend seeing Steve when he does one of his interstate trips. Actually I would see Steve anyway :)

    I highly recommend NA Autosport & Engineering Formerly Neil Lowe Motorsports.
    We have used them since 2007 when we first bought our Leggie.
    Yes they may be a bit on the expensive side but Nick is very experienced and well known and respected.
    Check out their story on the facebook page.

    I was just amazed by their in depth knowledge of cars and even better their rates are very reasonable too! Had clutch replaced and a few other small jobs.
