History of ALl DRIVE SUBAROO

Welcome to All Drive Subaroo, Sydney’s pre-eminent Subaru service center and engine repair and replacement specialists, located in Peakhurst, Australia. All Drive Subaroo evolved from Metro Mechanical, run by Niazi Helou, to become the biggest and most respected independent Subaru service center, parts supplier and gearbox and engine remanufacturer in Australia, with an international reputation for quality work and products.

ADS works hand in hand with Subaru Australia to provide specialist services and products. The company has gone from strength to strength, forming alliances with premium auto engineering companies such as Cosworth and PPG to provide products for motorsport and other specialist applications.

Many hours have gone into research to identify inherent engine and gearbox weaknesses and to produce solutions. This led to the division of ADS into four specialist divisions and the development of many refinements in products and configurations. The team at ADS continuously moves with the times keeping up with all the latest industry developments.

Our Promise

Whether you drive an enthusiast machine or a family wagon, we cater for all your needs.

All Drive Subaroo offers a complete range of services including: servicing, problem solving, engine and transmission
reconditioning, performance tuning of engines and suspensions and Subaru spare parts. So whether you need to keep a trusty old family wagon running sweetly, or you want to be King of the Hill at motorsport events, All Drive Subaroo has what you need.

All Drive Subaroo customers also benefit from our extensive trade contacts. We supply products to major players in the industry, with trade sales accounting for 40% of our business and 6% consisting of insurance subcontract work. This lower cost model flows on to our retail customers.

All Drive Subaroo has an ongoing commitment to research and development. We have conducted extensive research and development into Subaru issues and have developed methods for strengthening gearboxes and improving engine durability and efficiency.

James Knighton

Hi Niazi – just thought I’d give you some updates on what I assume is the only dual-range FXT in Canada 🙂 Car is running great – I have about 25,000 kms on the gearbox without any issues (there is a rattle at idle that goes away when I depress...

Hey guys Just wanted to say a huge thankyou for the service you provided me today. Was dealing with Nazi and what an easy bloke to communicate with. Ordered my turbo, gaskets and hose for a wrx and it is all in transit. That’s fast service in my eyes. Just...

Hi ADS guys! Thanks for getting me back on the road so fast. I’ve had this car for three years, and it’s never gone as well as it does now–can’t hear it running in traffic, and it just eats hills. Getting your reconditioned 2.5 liter engine was the best decision...
