The Warburton Family
Hi and Welcome to The Lube Shop. I am Nicholas Warburton, co-owner of The Lube Shop. I am an Automotive Mechanical Engineer and Builder / Carpenter by Trade. We use Pro-ma Performance products regularly in our day to day business in our Family owned workshop, Bramble Downs 4×4, and with all of our vehicles at home. Our customers will agree these are fantastic products and over all the years since I was introduced to these products by Trevor and Warren way back in 1998. I’ve only had great success and great stories.
I come from a long line of mechanical and engineering expertise. At the moment, I work with my Father, Tim Hibbert-Warburton at Bramble Downs 4×4, Auckland. My Father is a Mechanic trained in England with over 40 years experience. Tim is a Land Rover genius, and works and plays with Land Rovers and Range Rovers 24/7. If you have any question Land Rover related he is definitely the person to ask. My Uncle, Bruce Hibbert-Warburton is the owner of Long Drive Motors, Auckland, (where I also did my apprenticeship training). Bruce is not only a great mechanic running a successful business, but has also done a fair share of racing, having entered and placed well in many WRC races and the NZ Targa. (I worked in his and one other racing team, as a pit crew mechanic) My great grandfather, Harold Hibbert was an Engineer, He designed and made knitting machines and consulted for the British Army on many top secret projects during WW2. He was also responsible for bringing the first shipment of what we now call Teflon into Britain for use in his knitting machine factory. My grandfather, Guy Warburton was a race car driver who was driver/co-driver for the Allard Car Company Works Rally Team who won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1952. Guy must have passed his racing genes onto all his descendants because my brother and I also did some motor racing, back in early 2000 and came second in the Thunder Truck Class, while racing a modified Range Rover V8 in the Taupo 1000. I was 20, and my brother Joe only 16. Joe is a Brilliant Driver.
I met my wife, Michelle in 2002, and we were married in 2004. Michelle is currently working as a website developer. This is actually one of her websites. 🙂 Michelle also keeps me on track in helping you get all the latest information.
My daughter, Annabelle was born in 2011, and brings constant joy and fun to the family. We love spending time together and at this stage loves the outdoors and speed as much as I do.
I hope you enjoy all the valuable information The Lube Shop brings to you, and please feel free to contact us if there is anything we can help with.

When you are ready to purchase from our great range of Pro-ma Performance products click on one of the ‘Visit our Online Store’ buttons and you will be transferred to www.pro-masystems.co.nz/nwarburton. This is our NZ Pro-ma Performance Distributor Website, where you can select the size and range of products you are interested in.

If for some reason, you are not happy with this, please ring or email and we can arrange something more suitable.
Shipping and Delivery
All our products are shipped directly from Pro-ma Systems, therefore not under our control. However, orders are usually dispatched within 2 days, and then it takes between 3-7 business days to arrive depending on your location within New Zealand. Shipping costs are calculated in the shopping cart and will be added to the order total before checkout. Pro-ma Performance Products are classed as Dangerous Goods, so shipping costs reflect this special type of courier delivery. Please be aware that Pro-ma systems will only attempt to deliver orders once. If there is no one to sign for the delivery, a card will be left and then its the customers responsibility to collect this order from the Star Track depot. These are located in Auckland, Wellington, Napier and Christchurch. Additional charges will be passed onto the customer should they request a second delivery attempt. To avoid additional charges, it is advisable for customers to arrange a delivery address where the order can be signed for.
