Hey guys,

Need some advice, I've been living in Melb for the last 7 years and only just moved back to adelaide a month ago.
My trans has just gone in my VY commo..
My mums boyfriend took it to profix cause he knows a guy and he said $3200:bang: for a new one $1600 for a second hand thats done around 50,000 ks we talked him down to $1300.
Then i rand just commoder spares and they said $800:thumbsup:
can anyone tell me if they are good, or have people had problems with them??
Or can you suggest somewhere I should go instead??

Any and all advice is welcomed. thanks in advance

Get a full rebuild and a tough box for around the $2000 mark.

JC Spares are normally alright, just extremely expensive. If they are offering $800 i'd continue to ring around cause you're bound to find cheaper.

Many times they've quoted me more for a second hand item than Plaza Holden have charged me for a brand new one lol

Since you didn't know, i'll tell you now, stay away from profix, and find a decent mechanic who you trust!

That's a much better price, good on you for doing the legwork and getting a good price :)
