Quick question - is anyone aware of anywhere in Canberra that can install modifications for luxury cars? I own an R8, and I want to have the calipers painted / stassi exhaust fitted / sway bars etc.

Or do I need to travel to Sydney/

Cheers in advance

I don't think there are too many shops here in Canberra who specialise in exotics or even have much experience with them given the small exotic population.  Personally I take my (nicer) cars up to Sydney for any work that needs to be done.

If you did want to try locally, for the paint work I'd ask Tony Farrugia Bodyworks in Fyshwick as they're authorised repairers for most of the luxury brands.  For the other mods you could try Canberra VW Centre in Belconnen - those guys are across most VAG stuff and I know the owner was at one time looking into buying and modifying an R8 himself (though I don't know if he actually did so).

Best of luck with the search and hope to see your R8 around town sometime.

Hey James

Appreciate the advice!

Last one - when you do go to Sydney, where do you take your car?

For service / maintenance I use the factory dealerships - Lambo Sydney and Porsche Centre Alexandria.

Currans were recommended to me for body / paint work and they did a great job with the LP570 bumper on my early Gallardo.

Funnily enough I've been chatting with Thomas from Ramspeed - seems very competent and knowledgeable.

Just about getting the car to them now :(
