Yes, definitely NGKs. If you are replacing the coil packs, I'd suggest genuine ones. You could always upgrade to the 2.0t ignition coils, which some 1.8t owners have done. There are a couple threads in the b5 section on it.I have a 2005 VW passat wagon 1.8T, what do i need for a tune up exactly, i want the best brands to have my car running beautifully, i know sparkies should be NGK right?
People either bring their parts with them or ask me to get them. If I get them; I'll add a little on top for my time and the hassle, but I certainly don't mark things up like a shop would. NOR have I ever bought the cheapest part you could get and tried passing them off as genuine VW (or whatever) parts... That's really not right. I'd rather not lie to someone, lol. Plus it doesn't feel right getting a part for $4 then saying it costs $60.we need someone like you in the bay area, CA.
all of the vag mechanics here are cut throat and always are looking to make the most money from someone.
i have yet to find a honest reasonable vag mechanic. the one i thought was reasonable ended up charging me OEM price for some cheap FEQ strut mounts that are $8 on ecs tuning. he charged me $65/ea + labor and they are horrible, make squeaking noises and are worse than my 10 year old OEM ones i had replaced.
can someone clone this guy and bring him to the west coast?
Thanks, Jack. It was nice seeing you. Hope your daughter loves Pablo's old car. :driving:Bump for a great guy, :thumbup:
