Re: Good Body Shops in Boulder, CO area??? (Niello)
Go to Foreign Auto Body LTD in Denver on 700 South Monaco Parkway. They do a ton of VW work. I did $5k of damage to my front end and it looked like new when they finished with it and they debadged my trunk emblems for free. Get it in there before we get a big snow and everyone else is lined up with wrecked cars though, they get busy fast.
As far as driving at altitude, I take my GLX snowboarding every weekend and it climbs the passes just fine. Even made it all the way from Denver to Glenwood Springs (over two 10,000 ft passes) in 5th gear without dropping below 65. Try that in a Honda.
