  • I took my beloved Passat R36 to Sonny and said, “make it go faster, make it go smoother, give me some more torque, give me better fuel consumption BUT don’t in any way spoil the everyday driveability and reliability. He delivered on all accounts. I didn’t want a monster but I wanted it improved and Sonny delivered. I am very happy with the result of an ECU tune, air filter and sprint booster and can highly recommend this process and Autowerks to my friends.”


  • Wow, what great feeling it was driving home after getting my Clubby sorted out by sonny and his team! Just bought a VZ Clubby, got dicked around by a circus full of clowns – that’s three of my local workshops. Then I made a call to Autowerks, then drove the 5 hours to sydney and left the car with sonny and nothing too hard for them to fix, and with a very well run and spotless workshop. I will be driving the 10-hour return trip without a second thought for any work on my Clubby; thank you to all the team at Autowerks!


  • No matter what questions I have even if it doesn’t make sense they are always there to help, not that I know much about cars the relationship started as a check over my car advised by a friend dont go anywhere before you see sonny and problems were found so as a friendly advice for a small few bucks for a piece of mind thanks guys Great work ethics


  • Sonny at Autowerks is one of the few people who properly understand and know how to build a performance engine and set it up and map it correctly diagnostically.. a brilliant technician


  • Cannot speak highly enough. For genuine car enthusiasts, or general motor vehicle repairs and service… don’t go anywhere else. Honest and transparent. Rare to find in the automotive industry. 10/10


  • Great tune lots of low end torque which is what i wanted. Improved my 0-60.Would recommend Sonny. Going back for another package when i get my Slk.


  • Best mechanic in most surrounding areas. Highly qualified team with expert service and honest work


  • Had my new Ford Mustang fitted with new Cool air intake and new headers along with 3″ exhaust fitted. Sonny was so professional in his installation and tuning. Got and extra 20KW in preformance with great sounding exhaust.

  • Took my e3 clubsport for a cam package and exhaust and from the start dee and sonny were transparent and although I wanted something hardcore they gave me good honest advice and in the end I listened to them which now I realise there advice is what I definitely needed. Car runs mint and I’m defs happy with the outcome. Thanks again guys recommend these guys to everyone. You’ve defs gained a long time customer.


  • Sonny an the team at AutoWerks installed a cam an tuned my Ve SS 6 years ago. In all that time it hasn’t missed a beat an for me has been the perfect combination of power an economy. Recently I took it back for a touch up tune an WOW it’s back to its fire breathing best. I hadn’t noticed those few missing Kw right up the top but I sure can now there back. Big thanks to Sonny an the team. 10 out of 10


  • Cant thank sonny and his crew enough for installing a new clutch and a custom tune on my hsv ve clubsport , car drives like a brandnew car with amazing throttle response . I wouldnt go to anyone else , took his time and treated my car like his own . Went above and beyond my expectations


  • I got the stage 3 head and cam package on my VX LS1, as well as some other repairs and Sonny and his team by far exceeded what I was expecting with my car its incredible to drive now. The receptionists were very professional very helpful and everything was presented to me in detail leaving no questions unanswered. I am extremely impressed and grateful to have found such a friendly and professional place I’ll never take my car anywhere else.


  • Just picked up my e63 amg, absolutely stoked with the tune. It’s a totally different car. These guys know there stuff. Could not be happier.


  • took my ute there. the workmanship from sonny and his team is flauless not to mention the communication from sonny him self you could not ask for better. highly recommend


  • I incorrectly accused Sonny of damaging the rim on my c63 whilst in the workshop. He was humble and honest, focused on the longer term relationship and the integrity of his business. Sonny was quick to offer to pay for the damage, despite being in a discussion where we both believed we were right. I have since found out damage occurred on drop of by my family. Honesty and integrity are rare commodities these days. Sonny and Autowerks 5 stars. Stage 1 tune and service absolutely first rate, feels like endless power. Video up on FB for Autowerks. Thank you


  • Nothing but the the best Automotive work done by these guys from the ladies in the office the service starts though to the trade guys out the back , and Sonny is master at the dyno tune to achieve the maximum for your car and bring out its true potential . Can’t recommend them highly enough, do your car and your self a favour and make that call.


  • Sonny did a cam upgrade and tune on my VF Series 2 SS,the car came out perfect made excellent power, still have a smooth drive, made power well above what I was expecting and looked after my car as if it was his own child.
