diezeltoyz is on the list but no knowledge of them. Runonbeer and Mach1 here in the Austin area are very good and have direct knowledge and experience with both. Mach1 is in Spicewood, has his own garage and stocks parts and owns 2 2006 Jettas. He is very familiar with them and probably easier than SA to get to for you.

Berk and the guys at http://www.dbcperformance.com/ can take care of you. Randy in Spicewood is a good option for you as well.

That's interesting. I wonder if they have tdi specific know-how? I'll try to find out.

I don't have first hand knowledge of them doing TDI work, but that doesn't mean they haven't done any. They've been doing alot of Audi work, which can be very complicated. Berk's a straight up guy and I'm sure he'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

I've been to Randy's (Mach1) shop multiple times and he built my custom exhaust. His TDI knowledge, especially with the BRM motor, is extensive.

Thanks Chris for the recomendation, I still am honing my skills, got a new Miller 211 welder for Xmas..

Found a way to change the DSG fluid w/o pulling the battery and tray on the 09's and looking into the coolant loss on the CRD's as well..Saved a few cams on the BRMS. Saved a few turbos because of airbox sealing.

Don't mean to bring an old topic back to life, but figured it's better than starting a new one.

Are these answers still valid? Just got my 06TDI around xmas time (~3 months ago), and I need to have the DSG serviced (apparently the previous owner was religious about everything, but forgot to do the 80k DSG service. I'm at 115k now...) Starting to get paranoid about hearing that "tin can full of ball bearings" sound. It shifts only slightly rough sometimes.

I've done my own oil changes, but lack the SPT tool for that tranny, and it's a PITA to have to schedule my buddy on his off time to put it up on the lift at his shop.

Thanks in advance!

We had some recent dealings with DBC and I cannot recommend them.

I'd try these guys:

Thanks for the heads up Tom. I sent STXTDi an email to see how much they charge for that DSG service.

I tried the RSBdiesel website, but it's currently not working.
