Elvis has not left the building, in fact he is alive and well in the Western suburbs of Melbourne.
Let's face it, VW dealers have to cover the costs of staff and expensive facilities, their service fees reflect this.
If you need a good mechanic, I can recommend Elvis. He's a young fella about to start a family, and deserves a plug. I have visited him twice now, and must say, I'm impressed. My last visit was for the 75,000 km service on my Golf MK5 FSI, and saved well over $100. He's got all the tools you could poke a stick at including a laptop and VAGCOM.
The service took around two hours carried out with careful precision following a mental check list. I hung around for 10 minutes, and in less than that time, the car was up on stands, and the wheels off for a brake disk check measure. Returning from my walk, all was done, a new sticker on the windscreen, the "service now" message restored, and a 7 page report and bill of health handed to me.
Elvis is associated with VW, and has given me permission to publish his mob number.
Give him a call on 0414 833 622 to arrange a Saturday or Sunday service or repair.
Are u still doing servicing? Excellent post! Subscribed!!! I live very near where u are so this wld be perfect for me!
Yes I do Serving, brakes, accessorie fitting and now selling (fog light kits for mk6 golf, Jetta and amarok, 9w7 & 9w2 bluetooth kits, rear air vent for golf, jetta rear cup holders for golf, jetta and Vag com coding
I had issues with my Supercharger which backed off before turbo kicked in so the N249 code registered. This was fixed by replacing the Boost Valve and Turbo Bypass Valve.
I also had an issue with rough idle at start was due to a software update not being done by the dealer when I purchased the vehicle. It also required an update of software for a leaky injector issue which hadn't been installed either.
I took a recommendation from this forum and used Elvis who was brilliant (details below). He fixed all the issues and completed a service at the same time even letting me provide the parts otherwise he'd supply genuine VW part at trade prices + fitting.
In case you should need his details for yourself. I can't recommend him enough, it was like having your mate who's a VW expert fix your car. So much cheaper than a VW dealer and so much easier.
