Car restorations, modifications and imports

Eastside Automotive specialise in servicing and tuning late model European Vehicles to enhance economy and power. Also early American and English Vehicles are a common sight in their extensively equipped workshop. Our Digital Chassis Dyno is used to ensure the road performance of your car is at its peak without having to actually drive the car on the road until all fine adjustments have been made.

Diagnosis of specific driving problems (e.g. driving at 90km/h with a caravan on) is made easy by being able to simulate driving conditions in the workshop which would normally only be able to be achieved whilst driving the car on the road. Exhausts are custom made in-house in our Somerton Park workshop. Crash repairs, including insurance work just add to the complete service offering at Eastside Automotive. Vehicle compliance and engineering are performed and the mechanics fabricate Radiators, Intercoolers and other parts and accessories to order - almost anything you require, just ask us and we can make it happen!
