You can rely on most people to remember that their car needs petrol to keep running, but many of us forget about the second, equally important fuel that your engine needs to run: oxygen.
The exhaust system is vital to your engine’s health, as it draws waste gases out of the engine bay, allowing fresh air to enter and fuel the combustion process. Upgrading your exhaust system is one of the most cost effective ways to see a dramatic upgrade in your vehicle’s performance.
At Berklee Exhaust & Automotive we have a large range of exhaust systems and related products to suit all vehicle types. We are known as the exhaust system specialists who use the best quality exhaust systems available on the market. We are the state distributor of Berklee Exhaust products, Pacemaker Headers and King Brown 4 x 4 Performance Exhaust Systems which are all designed and manufactured in Australia with the well-earned reputation of fitting correctly the first time.

We take care with your vehicle and as a result work with vintage cars, special interest cars, one of a kind racing cars and hot rods to name a few. We also supply standard replacement mufflers, exhaust pipes – mild steel and stainless steel, exhaust gaskets, header gaskets, mandrel bends, catalytic converters, and most muffler & exhaust systems to suit all models.Contact Us
Whenever you buy a new vehicle the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that protects you from the cost of parts failures. To keep your warranty valid, you have to have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, according to the schedule and specifications laid out in its logbook.
It’s a common misconception that you have to have your vehicle serviced at the dealership to maintain your warranty, but it’s actually illegal for manufacturers to discriminate based on your choice of repairer.
Here at Berklee Exhaust & Automotive, our expert mechanics are certified to provide logbook servicing for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- Electric/Hybrid vehicles
- Light Commercial Vehicles

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems, like airbags, reduce the chance of serious injury in an accident, your brakes can act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop.
Your brakes also suffer a lot of wear, routinely bringing over a tonne of material moving at high speeds to a complete stop, multiple times a day. For this reason we agree with brake manufacturers, that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.

- Brake Component Replacement
- Brake Machining
- Brake Hoses
- Brake Restorations

Sometimes your vehicle’s dashboard is not exactly clear when communicating to you any problems under the hood. With the sophistication of modern vehicles placing an even greater emphasis on a properly functioning auto-electrical system, a flashing warning light could mean any one of a number of problems, meaning it is often best to have an experienced auto technician inspect your vehicle to discover exactly what is wrong.
Our workshop comes with the latest Carman diagnostic scan tools, to help locate the specific source of car trouble, allow us to make suitable repairs and get you back on the road sooner.
