It isn't perfect and I have said a number of times before, you still have to check these guys out too. Just because they are on the list doesn't make them a god. There are a few that are widely known and respected but all the others still need to be checked out.

I don't see any on LI itself but there are at least 3 in NJ within 100 miles or so. Depending where on LI you are.

It's worth traveling 100+ miles to make sure the work is done properly. There are several recommended TDI mechs in NJ and in Port Jervis, NY. But the list may include people who have moved or who are no longer working on TDIs, so contact several. Also, you will probably want to get your own TB kit from one of the top vendors.

Thank you. I am going to goteurocorrado for the work. I have been researching how to Diy for a while and have the metalnerd and hex v2 cable to do and have my mechanic (I like the way he works, works on loads of European cars at dealerships) to do it and do it together but don't have time. Maybe the next one. FYI I driving 131 miles to go to goteurocorrado.
