I believe the criteria for getting on the list is to have folks who have had work done there post references.

I had Roman (GotEuroCorrado) recently do a Timing Belt Service. He also fixed a smoking issue with my TDI which involved a replacement turbo actuator, new check valve, EGR, fixing my nearly broken shifter assembly, swaybar bushings, etc. The car drives so much better now - basically like new! I'm not one to let people work on my vehicles, but I was lacking free time these past couple months to dig deep into these issues. Roman was able to fix all these issues and I actually feel it was worth the money spent. This is HUGE coming from someone like me. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him! His info is:

Ben has retired and only does custom work/builds now.
I got an email from him stating: "Ive retired from the service aspect of the automotive industry. Im only doing custom builds, restorations,and buying and selling classics."

It's been a long time since we heard any feedback on these two gurus. 1) Are your experiences with them recent? 2) Do you know if their contact information is up to date?

Need help with a 2000 Vw golf tdi fuel line issue in Los Angeles. Iím on the west side.
tried to use the google doc to find someone but it seems out of date...

Details:
Re: Vw golf tdi (2000)
starting &/or fuel line issues. Local mechanic said it is air in the lines and it happens periodically and then usually the turbo goes out and high revs and have to stay below 60 mph. This mechanic was able to alleviate these issues, but it eventually happens again. Thanks.

Notoriously not a lot of TDI mechanics in California, TDIs were not sold new there. But today there are plenty folks with TDIs out there.
Try local car clubs, even PM some forum members.

I know a guy, but he a little gun shy with new customers. He has been burned a few times by customers. He lives in Hobe Sound and has a shop of his own, but also still works for Schumacher in Lake Park.

I can ask him if you like.
