In a previous article we looked at Volvo car servicing given that I’ve had a long running relationship with Volvo. This article looks at dealership sevice centres near Brighton on Melbourne’s bayside area. There are a lot of companies that provide vehicle servicing along the Nepean Highway (and surrounding areas for that matter) in Brighton and nearby suburbs such as Elsternwick, Moorabin etc. There’s no limit for service options for luxury and European car makes including Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi and Porsche, Toyota, Ford and Holden spare parts and servicing. This article perhaps targets late model car owners as most people that I know that have older vehicles tend to go to the private, smaller service centres. I’ve just found some of these larger “branded” companies too expensive charging in the order of $190 per hour for labour where as some of the smaller guys are charging $110 an hour. I have been to Cox’s auto at Buckhurst Street, South Melbourne and had a friends european car serviced for $330 that was being quoted in excess of $600 to do from the European car dealer who sells the make.
Note – there are many other smaller mechanics and parts and servicing centres up and down the Nepean Highway as well that we could mention, maybe in another feature article at a future date.
I descided to jump in the car and take a leisurly Sunday drive and see what dealership vehicle service centres were around in the area. In particular for this article I wanted to focus on the vehicle servicing along the Nepean Highway at Brighton and this article cover 6 places. There are mechanics and parts places that offer luxury car servicing, servicing of German makes, European, Italian as well as French makes and the stock standard “big 3” servicing of Holden, Ford and Toyota.
You might want to check this article out for a mud map where these motor vehicle dealerships are located along the Nepean Highway at Elsernwick for a better lay of the land so to speak.

At the time of writing the cost of servicing a Porsche at Porsche Brighton started at around $695 which included an oil service, parts labor and oil, a valet car wash, vacuum and a car wash kit as well as roadside assist. Mmmmm, I have never paid that for a service so looks like Porsche cars are a little out of my running costs budget. Porsche Brighton also offered a rejuvenation package to clean the vehicle back to showroom condition for $995. Anyway if that interests you you can check it out further at the link above.
