    City HSV/Motors Service Department have been a bit of a revolving door this year from what I have heard (rumours.....)
    I used to deal with David Nye but he has moved on after 20 years + of employment with them.

    +1 totally agree.

    I have a buddy I've known for many years is head Spanner at Brian Gardeners. He's been there 20 years.Trust him to work on my car. He has already and will do at the Dealership when I need the log book servicing too. Can't say I'd be happy with just anyone doing it, even at BG's, but if anyone wants me to see if he can do the work himself, and not possibly some dope apprentice, at least it's someone you sorta know I can recommend, then let me know.

    Which one do you take hours to? And does it have a HSV dealer there? I need to find a good service center for mine now that Opel can't service it. Will need someone who will look after it

    I'm with @faneca...

    But also I'm looking at using City Holden in Grenfell St - as they deal with HSV, but also deal with the CBD clients.

    Car just got serviced today by City Motors in WA booked two weeks in advance, dropped my car off at 9:00AM and said it should be ready at 4:00PM so I thought there must be a Super!!!! long check list or engine rebuild. I rocked up at 3:50 and had a quick look around around seen my car still on the hoist in the air. took another 30mins before it came out the work shop. the exit from the workshop is a very steep downward incline with a blind exit out the workshop into a T juction with car parks straight ahead, there is 5 KPH signs everywere in that area with cars presistently fly through the T juction with no horn signal or even looking by alot of servicemen and mechanics.

    I watched my car fly out the workshop and lock up the rear wheels sliding, with lucky to have an empty car park bay in front (which had a car not even 10mins earlier) and stalled he stayed there in the car looking shook up, then drove the car to an empty bay near the front close to where I was standing staring in disbelief. He then tryed to open the bonnet searching for the latch for a good while had a quick look didnt even touch anything then shut it by resting it down then apply force to get it to shut.

    He wasnt an apprentice unless he was a mature aged one, was about late 20s trying to look cool in sunnys.

    I just recived an invoice on its own with no check list or any information what was found with while the vehicle was serviced.

    I can safely say my tyres need to be replaced because of heat exposure,un even wear and rounded sidewalls.
    brakes plenty of noise from being exposed to heat and glazed and also because they are high temp race pads.
    Also signs of an oil leak on the left hand drive shaft were I pulled it out alittle when change my springs.

    So thats how my service went my heart is still racing from watching the Near miss and feeling ripped off i payed $348

    When the service advisor walked me to my vehicle they made a comment saying it looks almost Identical to the HSV VXR then looked inside and said aw seats and dash aswell. :/ I love the Vxr but they look nothing like the J VXR/OPC
