SLK Mercedes getting some new filters

Air filters and pollen filter(Cabin filter) going in today.  Very important to have clean air for your engine as well as for your passengers…


BMW 135i

Nice BMW in today for some service work.

Fitted out with a very nice matt wrap.


AMG Week

Short Week this week, nice to have a couple of AMG Mercedes come through the doors.  The coupe hasn’t seen many km’s over the last few years, so we did our part to help get the rego back on track, while the C55 got a fresh set of front brakes and the LiquiMoly service treatment.






Services- BMW and VW

Two of our newest customers in today for servicing, super busy day, always enjoy having new cars in the shop…




2016 Wish-list Audi TT and Land Rover Discovery 3

2016 Wish-list

Coming up to our 3rd year anniversary as the new owners in Wellington and we are looking to upgrade/add on to our courtesy cars.  With a view to up-spec an already very cool car to showcase some of the things we like to do and certainly the types of cars we enjoy seeing through the workshop.  Its a tough decision to know what that car might be and we still aren’t sold on this one yet, however it is a great looking car that is well appointed from the factory, the 2.0 TFSI engine poking out 200 Hp with a DSG S-Tronic gearbox behind it, driving power to 4 wheels, I’m excited.

This pics represents one that’s already been modded, so you get the idea of where this is heading..  We don’t have an unlimited budget, so want to have something that’s reasonably priced from the start, and for an additional $4-5000 can be turned into something very exciting… Is the TT it??

What we might get that’s suits the budget could be:  Remap, miltek exhaust and intake mods, some wrapping, some tinting and some lowering, all of which will be done on site…



Our other project is to retire our old P38 Range rover to a new home and get into a later Land Rover Discovery 2.7TD.  We see this as a great promotional vehicle for our Bluefin/Superchips product as a demonstrator, with a stage 1 tune boasting an additional 100NM of torque, as well as up to 10% in fuel saving when driven for economy.  Also looking to deck out with Rhino-Rack gear so we have it available to show off and demo as needed.  We love our old P38 Range Rover but I think its time to upgrade…, again, is this the vehicle we go for, nothing is set in stone, that’s why its a ‘wish list’.


V8 Engine Rebuild just happened

Handy having an engine reconditioner working in the same building as us!!!




Type_R Civic

Something pretty special in today, I’m told a very rare car in NZ, Type R Honda Civic, from my short drive up the street after the service I think this would be a huge amount of fun!!




Peugeot RCZ in for WOF and Service

ToyShopWellington Manfeild Playday

Manfeild Racing.

So I’ve been invited along to a ‘playday’ track day by one of our good customers so thought I would put one of our courtesy cars on the track…

Our suppliers were nice enough to donate some high temp brake fluid for the track so I thought we would add some more stickers for the weekend.
