not sure if this has been tried before, but having plans for towing around our great country and would probably like to have a list of known good mechanics or outfits that fellow treggers can recommend in case something untoward happens - I guess I can start off if anyone wants to come on board with my local mob called Premier Auto care at North Wyong call David on 02435111 and if you have electrical issues around Newcastle area call Jay 0413912488

I still have two 17 in wheels/tyres for sale if anyone is interested

Happy Christmas travels to everyone too

For my Treg and Golf, I always use Advanced Tech Automotive. The guys there seem to know a whole lot more about the Treg than the service department at the nearby VW dealership, and cost only about half as much.

so Mark is a mechanic ... or ex mine worker / operator (ie the dragline 1570 picture and just happens to live over the hill from the mines) or he is a master tinkerer

Wondered this before but the one opportunity to meet i had a drop off at his place way before sparrows fart almost a year ago

He is a proper mechanic but that is not his day job. He does a great job - very thorough and also has worked on my daughter's new beetle. I am very lucky that it's not too far to his place so that he can look after my next treg Bow Down

Hahaha - that is funny! He "made me" drive his V10 last night and take it for a spin around the block - I can't get another treg soon enough !!

Yep, that's definitely his smile. I could recognise it a mile away. I don't recognise that immaculate V10 he's under though. Normally when I see that Treg, it's covered in dust. Lol.

Back to the original thoughts for establishing this thread.
Full marks to German Auto in Melrose Park, Adelaide. S.A.
Also Full marks to German Automotive, Geelong West, Vic
Boettcher Motors in Bundamba (Ipswich) QLD also very good.
Cannot recommend Austral VW, Newstead, Brisbane or Barramundi VW in Winellie, Darwin, NT.
Can also recommend A1 Caravans and RV store in Elizabeth SA for caravan repairs.
Hope this helps someone out there sometime. Cheers, Dubby
