I live in southwest FLA :D but would be willing to meet.
BTW, anyone know of a good TDI mechanic(s) between Naples and Tampa ?

Have 2 2003 TDIs in family that need a little TLC. One has 275K (wagon) and the other has 75K (sedan - yep that's not a typo...)

TDI Mechanic in Fort Myers FL

Hey All: I've been going to Gil at Prestige Foreign Car Repair on Metro Parkway in Fort Myers for many years. He really knows TDIs extremely well and is as honest as the day is long. I highly recommend him!

I can help with some basic stuff.
VAP motorsports on Fowler in Ft myers works on these. He isn't cheap, but I assume better that dealer.
Also can try Prestige Foreign car repair on Metro Pkwy in Ft. Myers.

I'm in Winter Garden. I just got back into the club with a 2015 Golf I bought this past Monday. BTW, has anyone used VW Euroworks in Winter Garden? I need a DSG service.

Here's my new baby.


Here's my old baby, the Blue Beast. She went to a good home.


I'm somewhat new to the area. We moved to Winter Garden after I finished my military career.

I have always gone to Jason's Bug Ranch. they are great guys, very upfront and fair with prices. its right down the street from Budget U-Pull it. I've also been to Euroworks once, they are both literally right on the other side of highway 50 from each other, but i prefer the Bug Ranch. They are usually pretty busy, which i take as a good thing :D

I'm in Palm Harbor, always travel for disc golf. Haven't gotten my car neutered yet by the dealer, still unsure of keeping it and getting all the small stuff fixed (rear shocks, etc) or giving it up. been waffling for a year now...!

Oldsmar here. Have diesel, will travel. If someone wants to take charge, maybe piggyback another car club event. Why reinvent the wheel.

Since we lost Full Throttle of Orlando last year, is there anyone in Central Florida we can trust with TDIs? Once my mk7 and my wife's Beetle are out of warranty, I'm going to need someone to do timing belts/etc on these things.

I take my car to Melbourne Motorsports. The owner has a MK6 TDI SportWagen just like me. Prices are extremely reasonable for the work they do.

I would totally go there, except it's almost an hour and a half from where I live/work. I'm hoping for something a little more 'local'.
