    "Colin had my car in his workshop to replace the Automatic transmission this took him a year and a half then while fitting the transmission he bent all the valves in the engine stuffing it completely he refused to fix another year passes with my car not being fixed. I took him to court where it was found that he and or his mechanic were not qualified to do the job. He has been ordered to pay $2500 as this was all I asked for as this is what I spent to purchase a replacement car a Honda not a Volvo which is the car he stuffed up. He has now closed the doors and moved all in an attempt to avoid the paying me. I wont give up He also texted me saying I had to remove my car that the court has said once he has paid he can have it. Colin is dishonest and untrustworthy. beware if you have dealings Colin Kostka."

    "Car died in middle of motorway, took it to Euro Car as it was recommended from a friend as good and cheap service. Took them 3 months to get the car fixed. It costed over $3k+ and needed quite a bit of repair. When i got the car, car had a nasty shake when breaking but wasnt from the brakes. Also car started smelling like smoke quite a bit. Shake only started to get worse after few days, Took car back when engine light went on. Communication was horrible, every time i call i get a reply, i will check prices and ring you tomorrow, 1 week later i need to ring to find out whats happening. for 3 months didnt get single phone call or email to get an update. Had to go there and yell at Colin to get some attention. 3 months later i was told that he's replaced gaskets and stuff and added some super magical additive to the engine which will make the shake go away after 1000km. Needless to say the shake was there and the car would turn off when breaking. Made 2 other trips to Colin for electrical problems which shouldnt have been there in the first place. 2nd 3 months visit of the car costed another $3k+ which felt more like hotel fee for the car and nothing done to it.

    Took the car to GAL where i was told i need to replace pistons and that half of the work Colin did shouldnt have been done as it was clear the problem was with the piston.

    Very disappointed,I would never take my car there again even if its the last repair shop left in the country.

    "Had an airbag light problem on a BMW E36. Colin and his team located the problem and it was fixed without costing a fortune. I have dealt with Euro before and have found them to be extremely helpful and their prices very reasonable. "

    "OMG I have used Colin with my old BMW for years and called him to ask: "have you worked on a Renault and can we book in for service" There is a leak and breaks need urgently addressing.

    Said will need a full service. ok normal oil service in his words is around $120.00
    Full Service is $380.00 Went for the full service as not breaking correctly and leaks.
    Booked in and addressed brakes and oil/filter change.

    This was rather painless (So I thought).

    within a couple of days found the brakes would not work properly and if not worse than when we took it in. Next day went to take car out of drive and still a leak.

    This I am not sure if a service was ever done.!!

    Tried to call Colin... do not expect any answer on his phones. took full day to get hold of him.

    Took car back in for repair and estimated $1500.00 for the job.

    Service performed and leak is repaired yet to confirm if this is been done and showed components replaced as well as CAM belt.

    Apparently tried to replace break booster and could not as too hard and needed to remove almost the entire engine to do.

    So said we would collect at take to Renault. however he argued over the bill as we were not accepting he performed an acceptable level competency. Service and still had issues we took to look into.

    So now we still have to get the booter replaced....

    From what I can say he maybe ok with BMW and anything outside this is well outside his comfort zone.

    But I am doubting he is actually doing the work he says he is doing.

    Beware of Cowboys....!!!

    "Colin is great, and the WOFs are cheap. When getting repairs done, he keeps you informed along the way of what they find out and how much things will cost, which I find to be very reasonably priced. There\'s no pressure or upselling.
    I\'ve used Euro Car Services 3 times now and so has my sister.
    Colin has scanned my car for free, something that normally costs $80. A clean and organised place.
