'02 1.8T...1st Passat. I've found some info regarding CV boot replacement. Recently got oil changed and was told I need to replace both in front. How long can you go before replacing? Long-term damage implications? Stumbled onto site but like it alot.

Thanks.

p.s. does anyone in know of a good vw/import-only garage in or around Charlotte, NC area?

Don't wait long - the CV boot keeps grease in, and dirt out of the CV joint.
When they go bad, they will have to be replaced - which usually means you might as well do two new axles.
I would suggest calling The Wheel Exchange in Garner - I don't think they do that work, but could suggest good people in the area.
If you can, talk to Adam Hedspith - he owns an A4. The company specializes in wheels/tires for Audi/ VW, BMW and M-B. Good people.
