I'm not going to go into my issues with BFI, but I won't be going there again.

Can anyone recommend a shop that is good and trustworthy for VW ? I would hope to not have to go to the dealer, since there were no free services I hadn't intented to but that may be necessary.

I did a search for "VW service" but didn't have much luck.

Thanks!

What about that place at the crossroads of Hillsborough, Western and Jones Franklin? West German Garage? I feel like they've always had good reviews.

Absolute handled my b6 Avant. Not that bad there.

They did have issues rebuilding my transmission when I had a synchros issue on my b6 6sp which resulted an extended downtime but they eventually got it right.

Evan at Absolute was great, had him do much of my upgrades and tunes, but I decided to let the GTI go and head back into a CPO Macan GTS. No regrets, never needed to sell my S but seemed the right decision at the time leaving the hellish world of IT and downsizing. The folks next door to my Merc store put me in a Macan loaner and I was 'home' again, so now both P cars go to Southpoint.
