Northern BM

Is Northern BM having running another workshop soon? I'm looking to replace brake pads front and back, and the rear rotors, so would like some guidance and help.

Anyone else got work that needs doing?

Yeah they don't work by the hour, and usually a few drinks or sausages is all it takes for a charge pipe install!

'Wouldn't mind some experienced help fitting my Helix IC. Anyone local done an IC install? I'm guessing Vinney has. I'm prepared to pay double the normal NBM rates.

There's an Oxley in Melbourne?

Shark, you may want to use the services of Southern BM.

Sorry guys, realized I've just made a dk of myself. When you said NBM opening a new shed, I thought they were expanding within Victoria, not brissy.
