Adam Garello- Director

I’m the Director of Fine Tuned Auto’s, a business I started back in 2009. With 20 years experience as a mechanic I know my cars. I started out as an apprentice and it wasn’t long before the passion for Subaru’s really kicked in. The sound of a WRX is so unique, nothing could quite compare, and so I was hooked on cars and modifications was the next step. My first car was a CRX which I custom built. Then came a 2000 Subaru WRX which had a blown motor when I bought it. I rebuilt it with a bigger, 2.5L motor and did a heap of mods before finally selling it in 2018. Now my passion project is 2003 WRX wagon… watch this space for more cool mods on this one, I try to post major milestones on Fine Tuned Autos social media.

Jake Bridgewater- Mechanic

I’ve been a mechanic for over 7 years now. With a background in hot rods, V8’s and as a racing enthusiast as a kid and teenager, cars have always been my passion. Now in my early 20’s Japanese cars have taken my interest along with the local hillclimb racing competition. I started out as an apprentice mechanic in a small workshop in Western Sydney where I did all sorts of mechanical work including plenty of performance work, which I really enjoyed.

Traveling everyday took its toll so I got a job closer to home here in the Illawarra where I finished my apprenticeship and honed my mechanical skills further. After deciding I needed a change to enable me to learn more, I made one of the biggest decisions of my life and applied for my job at Fine Tuned Autos. As nervous as I was in the beginning it was the best decision I have ever made, it is my dream job. I love the opportunity, experience and knowledge, as well as the focus on customer service and performance here at Fine Tuned Autos. My next goal is to build my own car to race in the local hillclimb competition against my Dad (keep an eye on Fine Tuned Autos social media to see how I go).
