Eric and I wanted to throw in our thanks and recommendation for Tom in Stafford (ninedee_golf_tdi) if you need work done.

We are both TDI Newbies and took our "Ella" down to Tom for a going over, and what turned out to be an education in all things diesel. Even though we were late (note-to-self, when you say you'll be there in the morning, that means 0800), he was more than patient with us, walking through the ins-and-outs of the car, giving us a list of things we can do to help her run better, changed out a motor mount for us, and even caught a wily windshield wiper that needed changing. He even offered to let us come down and bug him while we tackle an intake manifold cleaning.

He answered all of our questions, asked and unasked, and was more than patient with our remedial working knowledge under the hood. If you EVER need anything done, Tom is the guy to see . . .

Speaking of which, Tom, we'll likely be back sooner than you'd like to take on the manifold cleaning. Thanks so very much.

Eric and Alison
