    Hi All, I'm looking for an independent shop to work on a few codes on my '03 1.8T. A few shops back east and one in San Diego have worked on the car, even a dealership but no one can fix this thing. Anyone know of a good shop? Thanks.

    Not to ramble for too long here but I'm sure I Houston there are many mechanics for all different kind of vehicles all over town. But what one determines pretty quickly is that there never is one that seems quite conveniently located near you. I found myself in the situation of...

    I'm looking to have some work done on my '01.5 wagon and I don't have a relationship with any independent VW shops in the Colorado Springs area (I've been lucky in that the only things I've need to do to this point, I've been able to do myself, which hasn't been much). I'm not really willing to...

    I have an exhaust leak that is just starting somewhere just behind the engine on my 1999 1.8T (121K miles). I read several posts about quick, inexpensive fixes if it's flex pipe related.

    If you are in the area of Westchester County in NY, I highly recommend my indy. He specializes in German cars and namely VW and Audi, both gas and diesel. I have been servicing my car ('02 1.8T) there for over a year, and it's always been an exceptional experience in terms of quality of service...
