Welcome Craig ;)..Congratulations for becoming a sponsor!

Just want to put a word in that Craig has given me nothing less than top customer service. Bought my Koni FSDs + Eibach Pro Kit off him and he went out of his way to make sure that I received replacements for some faulty front springs as quickly as possible; as well as replying my constant flow of emails.

Had a good chat to him and he is very knowledgeable and has alot to share.

Hey craig.

How's that. BWA Auto was the first place in NSW I got my car serviced.


Did you end up getting that exhaust on your GTI?

Hi guys,

Thanks for the warm reception!

Thanks Richard for your kind words, glad we got it sorted out for you in the end...... :D

We've been hard at work dynoing and getting things happening, keep an eye out for the MkV GTi project thread.

Check out my stock Mk V on the dyno with just a BlueFlame turbo back, makes 4kW at the wheels gain which is a nice gain but obviously the most gains with these TB systems is with the stage 2 re-flash.

Recently had the pleasure of dealing with Craig.
Purchased a rear badge for the MKIV from ecstuning.

Really fast postage, cheap price and excellent to deal with.

Thanks for the great service Craig.

Hey Cam,

Thanks for the kind words, glad the badge got there safely and in one piece.

Yeah Bizi, that has been our project car for the last 4 years and it's finally complete. I haven't had a chance to drive it yet as the old man is on holidays and won't let me unleash it on the street yet but itching to get it out on the track and start knocking out some laps in her.

Just thought I'd put a thanks to Craig for the excellent service and quick delivery for some parts that I ordered from ECS Tuning. Will recommend to others and use again if I need something else.

Got my brakes bled there recently. I know it's not a hard job but it was done swiftly and waiting there was a snap. Lots of good magazines and a big tellie.

Craig took me for a spin in his GTI with the Blue Flame exhaust.

If you are after something that sounds stock when cruising but angry when you are on it, it comes highly recommended. I was quite impressed. Shame I don't have a GTI to buy one :)

Had my rear brakes changed to R32 rears by BWA, Also helped me with an issue with a Sway bar bracket, Service was great.

What's even better is they aren't far away and very easy to get to!

I have sent you a PM Julthom with more details, but VW's service information on cam belt changes is now inspect the belt at 90k and every subsequent 30k after that.

Hi Craig
Just wondering if you offer chip tuning as well? if so which brand?
I saw on the VF engineering site they have an association with GIAC.
Does this filter down to you guys as well?

19-11-2012, 07:19 PM
hey craig
any chance you can give me a quote for fitting a timing belt kit on a MKV gti ? I have the kit from ECS tuning but havent the time anymore.

Let me know ! Thanks Ben

Hi would you please be able to give me some information or PM me about having an APR turboback RSC system installed? and tuning and other options,
im quite new to the VW game and my Golf R is only 3 weeks old.

Also wanted to ask in regards to replacing stock brake pads with remsa pads (as other members have suggested) if you also offer this service

any quotes would also be appreciated..
