MrVermin:

Sarcasm is lost on you. You are correct, you didn't produce any evidence based conclusions just opinion that seems to flip based on which threads you started recently or commented on in the past, you show your maturity by using terms like "shlong" to inject a negative connotation , and you continue to hijack this thread to make comments to me (and then re-recommend the same shops as a cover reason for posting).

Anyways Wingnut will probably lock this thread now that you have ruined it, and you and 'the crew' can go back to trolling the Ontario forums waiting to jump in on a thread that mentions DCB.

Well, I for one do not go out of my way to "Troll" for threads making any mention of DCB. In fact it is just the opposite, you were the first to mention it and bring it up, so why blame me for your issues?

In a way, I am actually guilty for allowing myself to be brought down to your level by originally answering your post, so I apologize for that.

While it is true that Wingnut may lock this thread, and that may be unfortunate, I hope that he does not. I will not answer any further posts of yours pertaining to this thread, so you may have your way and continue to pontificate on your righteousness.

Sweet baby Jesus! You guys bicker more than my wife! Hahaha.

I've brought my car to Brandon at DCB with no complaints, dude seems to know his stuff.

I don't have any personal experience, but there are a couple guys in Whitby that I've talked to that seem to know their stuff. I believe One is called Am42, check am42.com, claims to do a lot of TDI timing belts. There is also Willi's Car Care, it's at Highway 12 and Myrtle rd, guess it technically the Village of Myrtle. They always have VWs out front, and I've seen a few comment here about them being good with tdi's.

As I said, I have no personal experience so for all I know they're crap. Do some calling around and use your best judgement. Good luck with your search.
