Dallas Independent VW Tech + Key/Fob work

Hi All,

I want to give a super positive review to my new technician, Marin -- known around here as "jetta ,97". He's a VW & German car specialist, and that's for real.

This week Marin did work on my car including engine work, suspension work, and VCDS work. He nailed all of it, used the best quality approved parts available, answered all my questions, and attended to every detail including following up with me after. All that for FAR less than the dealer prices. I actually saved nearly $400 with my visit to him, and I'm absolutely certain the work was done flawlessly. I have never had any faith like that in any dealer.

I cannot give a better review for him, and if any of you, no matter where in DFW you are, want or need an independent VW tech then he is your guy. My review: A+++!

PM me for contact info for Marin.
The man is aiming to open his own German car service... I want to help him do it. His work and attitude are the best I have found so far. Seriously. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

5 Thumbs up for Marin!

He did plugs and a drop-in filter on my B6 and was fast, professional, VERY fair priced, and extremely informative. He made getting the bugger of an engine cover off look easy, and even used a little anti-seize on my plugs :D

I would recommend him to anyone, without hesitation.

Great Service on my MKV GTI

Great service, great price, great conversation!! The services provided were quick and extremely reasonable. I will be going back as my car is out of warranty in 10,000 miles (4-5 months). :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

more :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: for this guy! great service, great price, what more can i say. i had some VCDS tricks done on my '09 tiguan and after my initial experience w/ him the 8 hour drive (from San Antonio and back) is worth it. i'm definitely coming back once my care-free maintenance is over.

Super work - everything as promised!

Marin, thank you for the outstanding job yesterday afternoon!

He was on time, as promised, and the work took exactly the amount of time, as promised, and he made several key suggestions that customized my new GTI that I hadn't thought about. When the time comes, I will definitely take my VW to him for service!

Robert

another :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: for Marin
He met with me today to solve my damn knocking noise within my suspension. Turned out to be something i wouldnt have even checked or thought of until taking the whole thing apart. fixed it in 30 min that includes the drive to hear the problem and chit chat. very professional. going to be doing some more business with him this week for sure as well..

Another :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: 5 thumbs up for Marin!

My FSI Passat was acting crappy, had a CEL. Marin ran my codes. I had 4, maybe 7. He says it's none of these things (the codes), it's the PCV. I was like, "Whaaaaat."

He replaced the PCV. Car runs great, all codes gone. Crisis averted :cool:
