Just got back from Santa Maria, where Matt changed my timing belt for me (along with some extra little parts). He got to work right away, and (like others have said) while I expected to help, I would have only slowed him down. He even used vag-com to let me roll down my windows via remote.

Turned into a nice little road trip, too. :-)

Bump up for an expert, watched him work on several TDIs last weekend. His extensive knowledge rescued me from what should have been a botched injection pump re-seal job I was attempting.
Don't hesitate to book him for any repairs!

Did you put a skid plate on that Beetle before you left Sunday? Matt installed the DG Panzer Plate w/ FMJ on Cranberry. Unfortunately we ran out of time for the headlight upgrade; I'll have to tackle that later.

Romad, my group buy skid plate arrived this week, I've been out of town since the GTG. It'll happen very soon, going to help SMendick get his installed as well. I need to degrease the engine again and make sure there are no leaks from the new oil pan before installing.

Another satisfied customer here too! He did my TB service on my wagon today, was very quick, tested her out, had his VAG up and checking the whole thing out. Very methodical, very thorough. Gave me a heads up over some other concerns while he was in there too.

I'll be back in a 100,000

Default good guy &a great mechanic

Matt did my turbo upgrade and what a pro job he did. Took the time to diagnose the old turbos problems, and to point out other future issues.
thanks again
