R33 Compliance In Sydney Needed

Iron Chef

Recommended Posts

I need to comply an R33 for a customer in Sydney. If you can do it for $2200 plus tyres, the gig is yours.



Be careful when getting a compliance workshop to do your car based on price alone - there are a number of workshops out there who will do inferior work or maybe not do all the work required, we have seen this sort of thing before. It's quite possible for them to skip a few steps that will end up causing you trouble when you try to register the car.

Make sure you choose a workshop that has a good reputation and also double check all work yourself afterwards - it shouldn't be necessary with the tight RAWS workshop requirements, but there is a big different between good and bad workshops still.

If price is the biggest issue then make sure of exactly what they will be charging you for - some workshops might quote you $2,500 plus tyres and that is exactly what you will pay - others will offer $2,200 plus tyres but you could end up paying more in the long run for things that might not be included, for example:

DOTARS application fee - $165

GST - it's basic but many do not include it in quotes

brake pads - some will replace regardless and charge ~$400, others will replace only if actually needed

suspension bushes - some workshops will replace things that are not really needed in order to get more $$$

swapping non-standard parts - could be done free from some workshops, others will charge $80/hour

These are all fairly easy things for 'cheap' workshops to add to the price afterwards - just make sure you ask all the right questions and get it in writing if you are not 100% confident.

Cheers for the heads up Craig - I have been burnt like this before with an R34 compliance workshop in Sydney. I know which questions to ask now :thumbsup: Will edit my first post as necessary...
