PACE AUTO WERKS
German Auto Service mechanic
Meet the team
Conveniently located in West Perth, Pace Auto Werks is owned and operated by Simon and Kim Locke. We pride ourselves in producing a level of customer service and satisfaction that is second to none. Our highly-trained technicians possess a wealth of knowledge and experience across the European marques of BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Mini, Porsche and Volkswagen.
Customer Supplied Parts
We are frequently being asked if customers can supply their own parts for us to fit for them. The request will almost always be met with a swift decline.
When we supply your parts, you have an unconditional guarantee of 12 months on the parts we supply you and our workmanship, without exceptions. Any other arrangement is fraught with danger for both parties. This can easily end up in grey areas of the law as to who is at fault and who pays what when there’s a failure.
There is a plethora of cheap, poorly manufactured parts sold on the internet that we won’t even allow in the front door, so don’t be fooled by their advertising! The only exception to the rule is if you are supplying genuine parts and they are the correct part number for the job, and the part has not been subject to supersessions, or is the superseded version (meaning: a newer better version of the original part) Even then, if the part fails, we cannot be held responsible, and you will have to take the matter up with the supplier.
Please refrain from asking us to make an exception to this ruling because we will not be compromising on the quality of the product we produce, and refusal may offend. Thanks for your understanding on this often enquired about matter.
Frequently Asked questions
An auto service involves maintenance procedures being undertaken on your vehicle at set intervals to ensure its safety, reliability and longevity. These intervals are set out by your vehicle’s manufacturer. They are typically displayed in either time intervals or kilometre intervals and your vehicle will have this displayed on your instrument panel. During your auto service, our technicians will check over 150 components as part of your vehicle’s inspection. These include:
- Interior and exterior lights assessment
- Full scan of all Electronic Control Modules for fault codes logged
- Engine oil and filter replacement
- Washer and wiper operation
- Brake discs / rotors and pad measurement and check
- Steering and suspension inspection
- Testing of Brake Fluid for moisture content
- Testing of coolant for Glycol content

- Engine bay inspection and possible auxiliary drive belt replacement
- Tyre tread depth measurement and assessment
- All fluids are checked for condition and levels corrected
An auto service does not include repairs. The purpose of an auto service is to maintain your vehicle’s safety, reliability and identify any issues that may need attention. If your mechanic finds an issue, they will discuss with you the possible options to rectify it. During this process, your mechanic will quote you on the cost of repair. Therefore, the cost of a service does not include any additional repairs you might need.
New German vehicles under warranty need to be serviced at the specified interval times, otherwise you run the risk of voiding your vehicle’s warranty. Our team takes great pride in using quality parts that are of original manufacturer standard (OEM) and in line with warranty requirements. This quality extends to the oils and lubricants we use at our workshop which are formulated for German vehicles.
Our team of German auto specialists can take care of your older model vehicle with experience and expertise. Depending on the manufacturer of your car, we will service it in accordance with its specifications. As cars age, they will begin to present with areas of that may require attention. This is referred to as Condition Based Servicing (CBS). CBS means your German vehicle will always be serviced with reference to its specific condition to ensure its longevity.
Maintaining a German auto in Perth is only slightly more expensive than American or Asian vehicles. The price difference can be found in the quality of manufacturing and engineering that Germany is famous for! Some vehicle parts may cost more however, in general, the price of service components will be comparable with any vehicle brand.

Most vehicles have similar service requirements – after all, they are all built to serve the same purpose! However, because German vehicles offer a superior driving experience, their services often involve specialty tools and complex diagnostic equipment. This ensures their level of performance and reliability is maintained for your specific make, model, and brand.
