About Us

Sublab is a professional service workshop with proud local roots. Owned and operated by husband and wife team, Warren & Toni for over 20 years.

Warren & Toni started out with just the two of them back in 1997 in Hannah Street as Precision Automotive. As the business grew they added Technicians and car mechanic to their team and approached Subaru NZ and gained the Parts & Service for Northland. Two children were also added to the team and alot of their Customers have watched them grow up while they were at work playing in the lunch room. These changes required more space so a move to Cameron Street was completed in January 2000. Subaru decided to make all their Parts & Service Workshops uniformed and Warren & Toni were the first in the NZ to change the look to what it is today… Sublab@Whangarei.
