Thumbs up Thank you Marin!

Marin, Thanks for a great job on the timing belt replacement on my 2005 Wagon (BEW). Quality work while letting me watch. It doesnít get any better than that.

Iíll add my recommendation with the others on this forum. He is very thorough and passionate. I will not hesitate to recommend Marin.

Thank you, David

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to add my praises here for Marin. He just did a timing belt replacement and cooling fan replacement on my '06 Jetta TDI. His location is very convenient to my office and his genuine concern for my vehicle was very apparent. Marin is great and his prices are very fair ... he will be seeing me and my Jetta again for sure. Thanks so much for a great job Marin ... my Jetta feels brand new again

where are you located and what would you charge to do a timing belt on a early 05 BEW?

Default Another A+ rating for Marin.

Another A+ rating for Marin.

I called him today to do the windows up/down feature with the key fob on my 2011 Jetta TDI. His shop isn't close by but he offered for me to meet him at his place since it's a lot closer & I'd avoid rush hour traffic. It worked out great. Our kids even played together while he did his work. He did the windows up/down, seatbelt idiot light & buzzer delete, all doors open with one click (instead of drivers with one click, all with two). We talked for probably 30-45 minutes while I asked a bunch of rookie questions. He's a nice, honest guy, knows his stuff & is very reasonably priced. I told him after the 10/20/30K free services at the dealer, I'm coming to him.

I am not one to hand out compliments easily, BUT Marin is the real deal! Great communication, excellent work and fast. I still cannot believe when the #3 injector was wrong on Monday at 2:00 and you had Pete build another and have it installed by noon on Tuesday. That is service! Also, 47 MPG on the trip home.

Thanks again Marin

Marin did a greatjob helping me correct a speedometer / odometer that was incorrect due to larger 225 / 50 / 17 tires i had installed. He did a great job! HE had to adapt an instrument cluster value to get it right and now it is dead on with what it was from the factory.

If you're in Lubbock TX then Steve in Ft. Worth is the closest to you, Marin (this thread's owner) is also a very skilled mechanic... and very well worth the drive

I could do it for you as well, but it looks like you're taken good care of so far.

I have not had an opportunity to take my car to Marin yet (I live in SE Houston) but all I can say is that he has been a class act on the phone and via e-mail. He takes his time to respond to e-mails and also on the phone. It shows that he has a passion for a work well done.

Glad for the folks in the DWF metroplex to have him around!

Martin, Do you have the ability to delete the Immo function on the Immo III FIS clusters? I put one in my non-immo (2000) variant, and the one issue I couldn't overcome was how to satisfy the Immo warning and flashing light in the cluster.

Cluster Immobilizer can not be deleted but there is a way to fix this.
I sent you PM.
