I've get to take my 2011 wrx hatch for a service anywhere as yet, but I've checked out and some great chats to Adam @ auto ministry.. He's got plenty of experience, and top advice.

Question....

I am DUE for a 6year service on my 05 WRX.
I have phoned Subaru Glen Waverely who have advised it will be $873.00 :shock:
so then I phone Subaru Lilydale and they have said its around $750.00 :o

Are these prices the Norm? or should I be looking at a completely different mechanic? hmmm

The only reason why I have only taken it to Subaru services all this is because I am some-what anal about it.. maybe its like OCD? .. but now because im POV I'm considering a change? :surrender

Go and see Adnan Dungan at Black Stallion Prestige in North Melbourne. He's a legend of a bloke that knows Rexiz back to front, inside and out! And he's honest! He used to own HiBoost in Coolaroo and AVS in Cambelfield. Can't recommend him enough!

For Servicing I've used STI Docklands since 2008 when I picked up my Tuned by STI and will be continuing the trend with the new STI now. Never had a bad experience with them, and never felt like my car was anything less than looked after exactly as I'd want it.

This thread is a sticky and is very old and things have changed. I believe it would be good to start all over again.
Remus for the Rumble
3" Turbo Back/APS CAI to help it Breathe
Cusco Front Strut Brace
Whiteline Adj Sways F&R
STI Springs & Tokico D-Spec Struts for the Corners

HPF for the Tune

Just had a bad pre purchase inspection experience at autocraft hobart, i believe ownership has changed since your post. Recommend try elsewhere for an inspection. Nowhere near enough feed back for $ , and a few other issues
