COVID-19 Prevention & Response Plan

Dear Valued Customers,

We hope that you are all safe at this unsettling and uncertain time.

We have been advised that mechanics can remain OPEN to support essential service providers during the lockdown beginning at midnight on Wednesday 25th March 2020.

We have decided that our usual business model will NOT continue. The workshop doors will remain closed and our team will be staying at home with their families.

We do want to do what we can to support our community so Joseph will be on-call to complete urgent repair work or warrants for those customers who work in the essential services.

We will limit contact during any interactions and complete work wearing a mask and gloves. If Joseph or anyone in his small circle become unwell then we will cease all services until symptom free and the required isolation time has been completed.

Prevention of virus spread within the workshop
  • Hand washing for at least 20 seconds with warm water and soap.
  • Alcohol hand gel, gloves and masks available at the reception desk.
  • No hand shaking and maintain social distancing of 2 metres.
  • Please turn off the heating and air conditioning system, so air is not blowing when the key is turned on.
  • No open drinks or food inside the vehicle.
  • Whilst working on interior aspects of your vehicle we will be wearing a mask and gloves with careful cleaning on completion of work.
  • Car keys will be wiped down before any transfer between customer and technician.
From our family to yours, we wish you well at this time. We thank you for your ongoing support.

Testimonials

Had my 2013 Audi A3 1.8T remapped by Joseph, the car is so much more responsive, greater power through the rev range and fuel economy hasn’t changed, which is great! Joseph provided excellent service and gave me further advice on how to make my car run better etc. - highly recommend!

Vishal Nagar2013 Audi A3 1.8T

We had our Mitsi Challenger remapped last month. The economy has improved, there's an increase in power and reduction in turbo lag. Everything we asked for! Would definitely recommend.

Laura ThompsonMitsubishi Challenger

Wow! Joseph knows how to work magic on my vehicles. Firstly he performed a stage one tune on my D40 R450 Navara. The torque increase is fantastic, now 530 NM, great for towing my 3 tonne caravan or just getting away from the lights without holding traffic up! Secondly he did a stage one tune on our MK6 GTi Golf, I now look for any excuse to drive to shop the long way! Massive torque, massive fun!

Paul EteveneauxMK6 GTi Golf

Got my BMW tuned by Joe. Great job and great communication. Thanks again 👍

Ben SargentBMW

Joseph @ Sutherland Performance did a top-notch job of tuning my MK6 Golf GTI. He got some serious tire-shredding power out of my Golf and did a really good job at explaining step by step what was required so at all times I had complete peace of mind... If you need a tune Joseph is your man!!

James LyonMK6 Golf GTI

Sent my VW golf to Joe after being misdiagnosed by another mechanic. Car broke down and was spitting fuel from the exhaust. Was towed by aa to nearest auto electrician. Was told by the mechanic there that my car needed a new turbo at a cost of 3k plus labour and all the add ons. They also said that the new turbo may not even fix the issue! I mentioned their diagnosis to Joe who said the diagnosis did not seem sound. I sent my car to Joe and within literally 20 mins he had correctly identified what the issue with my car was. Not a broken a turbo! Joe save me time, money and a lot of stress! Could not recommend Joe more. Thanks Joe!!!

George GeorgiouVW golf

Just had my '09 VW GTI Pirelli tuned by Sutherland Performance. They were great and easy to deal with, friendly, and even fixed a blown tail light. And the tune is amazing. Like seriously amazing. Power delivery is smooth and more predictable than before. It's also much more than before. I'm a happy camper.

Tim Wright'09 VW GTI Pirelli

Had my partners mk6 gti chipped by Joe and it’s made a massive difference. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for some extra power and fuel economy from the car. A+++++

Steven Gordonmk6 gti

Joseph, at Sutherland Performance, did a first class job tuning our 2.5L diesel iMax van. The van now drives more smoothly, has less turbo lag and requires less gear changes on my regular 300km intercity trips. The price to do the high-tech job was really reasonable too and the tune job was turned around in less than five hours. Excellent value and results!

Alan Le Breton2.5L diesel iMax van

Had my Golf TDI tuned at Sutherland Performance. Not only did I gain more power but my fuel economy is even better. Great guy to deal with, Friendly but professional. Highly recommend. Thanks Joe!

Josh ElliottGolf TDI

Great service by Joseph. Stage one on our Golf GTi Pirelli really pleased. He has vast experience on VW's and offers great advice as well. AAAAA++++

Alan RussellGolf GTi Pirelli

Great job on effortlessly doing a resonator delete on my golf R! And to boot, Joseph noticed my key battery needed replacing so he just did! Thanks, bud really appreciate it. The golf sounds sweet.

We arrived at Joe’s workshop with a whole list of questions and worries, and he ticked each one off the list... patiently and thoroughly. The workshop is clean and tidy, in a handy location, and Joe is friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. He explained things clearly and in “layperson” speak, which was useful for us as new VW owners without a great deal of technical knowledge ourselves. He was highly recommended to us, and we would highly recommend him to others.read more

Can't give Joseph high enough praise. We had someone else look at our Audi S4 with a leaking sports diff. Two weeks and... a large bill later, we were no better off. Took it to Sutherland Performance and he found the fault within a day and once the parts were here, fixed in another day. Highly recommend these guys.read more
