VW Golf R – Service, Supersprint Exhaust Fit and Engine Tune

Customers come to Ramspeed not only for vehicle services, but for tuning and performance upgrade work too. The VW Golf below came to the workshop not too long ago for a Service B, as per the log book schedule and current km on the vehicle. This included an engine flush as well as a DSG service.


During a thorough inspection of the vehicle, it was found that the spark plugs needed to be replaced too.  Spark plugs are needed to ignite the compressed fuel/air mixture by an electric spark. Without this, the vehicles’ engine will start problematically, if at all.


The customer had purchased a Supersprint Exhaust from RamSpeed Imports and appointed RamSpeed Automotive to fit it to the Golf. Supersprint Exhausts are built and designed to insure additional power to enhance overall performance. Separate to this, the customer had requested a DSG and engine tune, which was carried out successfully.

VW Golf R32- HMS Cat-back Exhaust System Installation

The owner of this Volkswagen Golf R32 purchased a top of the line exhaust system from HMS through RamSpeed Imports. Once the Cat-back exhaust system had arrived, the customer had brought their car into the RamSpeed Automotive workshop for the exhaust to be installed.


Cat-back refers to the portion of the exhaust system from the outlet of the catalytic converter to the final vent to open air. This generally includes the pipe from the converter to the muffler, the muffler, and the final length of pipe to open air.


Cat-back exhaust systems generally use larger diameter pipes than the stock system. The mufflers included in these kits are often glasspacks, to reduce back pressure.

It was a pleasure to work on this sleek Golf R32; our technician worked hard to ensure the end result was an absolute triumph.

VW Golf GTI – Service B and Brake Pads

The owner of this shiny black Golf GTI required a scheduled Service B on his car.

The Service B includes replacing oil filters, inspecting brakes, checking suspension points, drain and refill engine, check engine compartments for leaks and much more.  This GTI required new spark plugs and oil filters which were replaced successfully.


During the inspection, our technician found that both the front and rear brake pads, including the wear sensors, were worn and required replacement. As any driver would know, brake pads are a key brake part because they are the component that contacts and applies pressure and friction to a vehicle’s brake rotors. Though the role of brake pads in braking is pretty simple, the brake pads themselves are anything but.


It’s fair to say the owner of this well maintained Golf GTI was pleased when the car was picked up from the workshop.

RamSpeed Automotive is Australia’s No 1, privately owned European car specialist with focus on European vehicle repairs and servicing including performance upgrades for all Volkswagen models.

VW Beetle Engine Light and Window Repairs

VW-Beetle-Wheels-Boot-RamSpeed-1To fix the issues we replaced the front left wheel bearing, wheel hub and carried out the drive shaft overhaul as required. The engine light was due to a faulty oxygen sensor which we picked up after scanning the vehicle. A new window regulator was needed to fix the drivers side window.
