Had a great experience with this guys, timely and very professional. My car looked brand new when they popped the hood after their standard service, I had trouble believing it.They also fixed an issue with the front panel of my car on the right side that was sticking out due to an incident where it came out after getting caught on a wooden log while reversing through the driveway due to poor visibility. They put everything back into place free of charge, every other place I've been to have quoted me $1000 to replace the whole panel with zero help.These guys will not only do a great job but will also save you money, that's real customer service!!!The mechanic actually told me, save your money, when he could have easily tried to upsell me on a number of things which I told needed replacing.Highly recommended!!! Excellent service!!

I took my car for a paint job to K1 Motors due to some sun damage at some areas, and also to replace a cracked windscreen. They did an excellent job! Alan was great to deal with. I also got my car back on time. So I was very happy. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get such things done professionally for a fair price.

Daniel and his team are great. Installed parking sensors front and rear on short notice. Reasonably priced so it was worth the drive. Will be back when compatible head unit comes in

Family run by Alan and his wife. Straightforward and does not screw you over. Honest. Reasonable. Passed the brake test (I tell every new mechanic I have squeaky breaks...they do squeak abit... but i know they have life left in them). Honestly told me I had about 40% left, which is about right. Also didnt tell them about my old battery due for replacement (i had been keeping it topped up with a battery conditioner)...and correctly discovered the battery had dropped it's CCA (despite the indicator still being green). Engine oil service for a large falcon costs only $150. ZF Transmission filter pan and oil change (not flush) costs about $500. Not bad at all. They are busy for a reason. I didnt ask for it and they gave a free car to use in the interim (like... "here's the keys off you go". no paperwork. no fuss).

We entrusted Alan and the Team at K1 Motors to repair and paint my Dads very rare and valuable Sport Car. This was a special job as this was a surprise present for my Dad! The experience was first class and the communication outstanding! The workshop was extremely clean and the staff well presented. The quality of their work lived up to all their good reviews which lead me to using K1 Motors in the first place.As a family we are glad we appointed them to complete the work! Alan was an absolute gentleman to work with and respectful and kind to my parents. We couldn't be happier! Thank you!
23:38 02 Feb 21
Extremely poor service, doesn't know anything about roadworthy. They advertise lower price but you end up paying double price. They don't go by the roadworthy checklist and just try to pick up little things to charge you. Wish I took my car to someone else

Mechanic very friendly and knowledgeable.
03:10 15 Jan 21
Great service at a great price and the quality is of the highest standard. After hitting a kangaroo in my mustang a new front bar was fitted and painted in 2 days. Could not be happier with the results and have no hesitation in recommending the team at K1

Went for a quick repair to the front underbody of my Nissan. The mechanic was friendly and efficient. The reception area has seating if you want to wait there. They even offered me complementary soft drinks. They also do servicing and are a Vicroads licensed roadworthiness certificate issuer and also carry out servicing with extremely competitive rates. They use Aussie Penrite oils for the vehicles.
04:02 16 Dec 20
Went and saw Alan at K1 motors and he installed rear sensors which have been working perfectly and replaced my mirror and side guard which were damaged. Quality of the work was 10/10, price was very reasonable and it only took him half a day! Can’t recommend Alan and K1 motors enough, he was even so kind as to drop me off at the station to help me get home without a car! Thank you Alan and the team I’ll be using you again in the future I’m sure
02:27 02 Dec 20
Car reversing sensors. Fast, friendly, professional. Highly recommended and friendly people. Thank you Alan and the team. Also have a very nice waiting room and offer a free can of soft drinks.It was worth the 1hr drive.

I did my car RWC with K1 motors. I didn't mention that the car has done major service with the dealership. To make it short, Allan the mechanic did it in an hour. Said everything was fine and issue the RWC. Very friendly, on time and reliable. Yes I would recommend anyone.

Alan a great guy who did the job very perfectly. He did painting and fitting for the rear bumper of my Mercedes. The quality of the paint is beautiful. All the work was done in 1 day. The price of the labour and paint was very reasonable that I could not get similar price anywhere else. I personally refer this guy to anybody who wants his car stuff to be done in a professional way. Thanks Alan.
07:01 30 Jul 20
Recently had my car in at K1 for service and bonnet respray, very happy with the end result. Alan was helpful and professional, with very competitive pricing. Would not hesitate bringing car back for future services.

I was very satisfied with the work that was done by K1 Motors last week on my Honda. The car needed to have the rear parking sensors replaced and K1 did the job on time for a very reasonable price and the overall experience was first class. I decided to wait the 90 minutes for the job to be done and the waiting room was comfortable and even offered free soft drinks. This is a business that is really making an effort to provide a good service and I would thoroughly recommend them.

I had my reverse camera installed by someone else and it cost money when I thought it included the sensor parking when it did not happen. A bit of a rip off for me. Contacted every place to get a reasonable price for parking sensors. They came across a reasonable price & therefore booked in and explained my situation as a hearing impaired person. I was then explained how it would work. Once it done being installed I was then shown how it works, I see the light and hear the beeping sound. I am forever grateful for their amazing work and their support in showing me before hand. Now driving away with a fantastic parking sensors.On the negative note: when i had the reverse camera installed, the reverse camera wasn't making any movement when reversing out. Now having the parking sensors installed, although when reversing out my reverse camera did not make any movements, I am not sure whether it because my camera wasn't installed correctly by someone. When I put the gear into R the screen will pop up and the word says "Danger! Please check surroundings for safety" it a bit annoying as I didn't want the word pop up and staying there as I am continuing reversing. How do I solve the problem?
06:29 22 May 20
Brang my Porsche Boxster into k1 for a respray and Allan and the team went above and beyond quality and workmanship unquestionable very easy to deal with and will be reccomending to all friends and family. A plus 👍👍
10:32 18 May 20
Bring my car to respray the bonnet. Really happy with the result. Give thumb up 👍
05:23 22 Apr 20
Alan was very patient and explained clearly what parts needed replacing when i brought my car in for a service. he is very knowledgeable and willing to work with you when it comes to maintaining your car properly. he offered a loan car for the afternoon when the servicing on mine took longer than advertised (90 minutes on the website). highly recommended for the clayton area
09:53 09 Apr 20
Alan repaired both our cars and did a great job at a reasonable price. He explained the required repairs very clearly and had the cars repaired much earlier than expected. Highly recommend
03:36 24 Mar 20
Though I live in Malvern but this is the 2nd time I have taken services from K1 motors. Distance doesn't matter for such quality and respectful attitude. Alan is a very humble person. I am very noobish regarding car, and Alan is definitely trusted person like us☺️
08:21 18 Mar 20
03:28 18 Mar 20
Extremely happy with the service and prompt response.Alan responded to my enquiry super fast.Dropped off my car and in 2 days time my car was completed. Very happy with the job.They also provided me with a courtesy car for the 2 days.Highly recommend them
03:12 18 Mar 20
Alan was incredibly helpful and professional in every interaction with me. He phoned me with updates about my car, and returned it to me 3 days earlier than I expected. My car needed a roof and bonnet respray. The price was competitive and the quality of the workmanship was excellent ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Alan responded to my questions promptly before I took my car to K1 for a rear bumper replacement. His quote was reasonable enough, the job done well as per scheduled. I wouldn't hesitate going back to Alan for any other car repairs.

An appointment to install the rear parking sensors on my Toyota Aurion was made and the installation was completed punctually. The work was carried out skillfully and with care, for which I was very satisfied. It was fair to say that at least in my case punctuality and professionalism are the two strong attributes of K1 Motors. Besides, the cost of the sensor installation is also reasonable. Hopefully the installed sensor unit will perform well beyond the warranty period and that expectation awaits to be proven in due course.

My little Suzuki Swift has been seeing Alan since I bought it approximately 4 years ago. He is extremely trustworthy and very reasonable with price. In addition to that he is very efficient. For someone who doesn’t have much car smarts he makes sure I’m safe on the roads.I would recommend you to see him in a heartbeat.

I have taken 2 of my cars to this workshop and both times were absolutely satisfied. My car was hit by someone and needed to replace the whole front door. It was estimated to be done in at least 2 weeks. However, Alan and his team have finished all in only 5 days (including a weekend). That was amazing!Highly recommend for anyone who looking for an auto workshop due to its efficiency and dedication!
00:10 05 Dec 19
Amazing!!! The price was as quoted online, the service was super quick (only a couple of days) and the repair was perfect! Highly, highly recommended!
