    The filters for inverted mounting have a check valve in them, otherwise oil would drain and every startup would be with no oil pressure. BIG problem if the wrong filter is used...

    When installing, you fill each filter with oil, then flip over, get oil on your clothes and shoes, wait for it to stop dripping, then fit to engine.

    I like doing all my oil changes too, but don't. Why? Because people that buy these cars are so fickle that they need to see service history stretching back before the car was even conceived.

    So I pay my local Ferrari mechanic $500 to change the oil every year.

    I'm in Perth, so I use Barbs. They're good, no complaints at all.

    Cheers

    My car has been serviced elsewhere during its history as well, but I like the guys at Barbs and they do a solid job.

    I recently had them do a full clutch rebuild and they did pull out the stops to fix a few issues that came up during that process.

    You get what you pay for when it comes to working on these cars. Experience does count for a fair bit when things start to go south.

    I like that :)

    If you have a Porsche or Ferrari on the GC and you take your car to an auto-electrician they tell you to **** off :p

    I wouldn't go that far. The heat has sent most of your lot troppo.

    100% agree. I'd consider them if where I take mine closed but good to know you're having a good experience with them. Cheers.

    Just let him win a few games of pool from you, and he’s putty in your hands.
