    It’s a Passion thing.

    Servicing, maintaining, and repairing classic VW Vehicles requires more than just a mechanic. It requires extensive knowhow, experience, and most of all a passion for the Volksy and its idiosyncrasies. Why else would you dedicate a lifetime of work to becoming an industry recognised specialist in the field.

    Siggi and Steve share over 100 years’ experience in servicing, maintaining, and restoring Air-Cooled Volkswagens.

    Siggi is arguably one of Australia’s most experienced Volkswagen specialists on the tools today, having commenced his journey as a VW specialist back in the mid 60’s.

    Following in his father Reinhold’s footsteps, Steve joined the business straight from school. Capitalising on the extensive experience of Reinhold and Siggi, Steve is highly respected in the air-cooled Volkswagen community.

    We’ve been having our kombi serviced by Siggy and Stephen of GHR for about 15 years, from the day we bought him. Siggy and Stephen are marvellous - their workmanship is first class and their ability to solve gnarly problems is stellar. With a vehicle nearly 50 years out of warranty, this is pretty important! We trust Siggy and Stephen implicitly. They never overcharge, let us know when things are are likely to go on the blink and always fit us in straight away on unexpected developments… The reason our lovely Barney Kombi is on the road daily is because of their love and attention. Thanks fellas

    Absolutely brilliant service - extreme attention to detail! Picked up on things that nobody else has in the 12 years that I've had my kombi. Right down to the fact that the seat belts weren't working properly! Second-to-none customer service too. Could not be happier!!!
