Jim and Jarrod Hall have developed a reputation for being one of Perth's premium Subaru specialists. Jim has been servicing and repairing Subarus for over 40 years and, with Jarrod, has continued to deliver on quality, price, and knowledge. Blue Star Mobile Technician has now been servicing Subarus since 2004, with the distinct blue mobile van and a full modern workshop facility in Wangara.

Blue Star Mobile Pty Ltd trading as Blue Star Mobile Technician is a registered Motor Vehicle Repair Business (MRB2959) and a member of the Motor Trade Association of Western Australia.

Jim is a member of the Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers and holds a Motor Vehicle Repairer’s Certificate from the Department of Commerce.

Jim commenced working as an apprentice in 1971 on Subarus and VWs.  Later he moved to Regents Motors, a Subaru specialist, being progressively the head automotive technician and then the Service Advisor. In 1995 Jim joined North Subaru first as an automotive technician and then as the Service and Parts Manager. 

When North Subaru was sold in 2004 Jim decided it was time to establish his own business and Blue Star Mobile Technician commenced trading in 2004 specialising in the servicing and repair of only Subarus. 

The business initially only offered mobile servicing and repairs and as it grew, moved to various workshops in Wangara. Since 2011, Blue Star Mobile Technician has operated from its current workshop premises and continues to offer mobile servicing and repairs.

Jarrod commenced his apprenticeship with Jim in February 2011 and is due to complete his apprenticeship in 2014. Jarrod is a keen motorsport enthusiast, regularly racing the ‘orange racecar’ – a 2001 WRX STI GD - and frequently participates in cruises in his 2003 WRX STI GD with its unique and distinctive blue rims. 

Jim and Jarrod (and Jim’s wife Barbara) exclusively own and drive Subarus save for the blue mobile service van. Subarus owned and cherished, both past and present, include: 

  • Subaru 2003 WRX STI GD
  • 1986 Subaru Vortex XT Turbo
  • 2001 Subaru WRX
  • Subaru Sherpa 800cc 2 cylinder
  • Subaru RS Liberty Turbo 1994
  • Subaru H6 Outback 2004
  • Subaru Forester 2003
  • Subaru Brumby
  • Subaru SVX 1994 – one black and one pearl

When they're not in the workshop, you will most likely find Jim, Jarrod, and Barb at a race track. With the Perth WRX club and No Limits club, you'll see the Blue Star Motorsport cars out on the track.
