I agree with DevX. The service at Wagner is horrible. If it wasn't so close I'd NEVER go there. They wanted to charge me $100 to program an extra keyfob for me (Which took me about 5 minutes to do with the owners manual).

Brian's Garage is great, and so is Shine Racing Service. Brian's is in Needham off highland ave and Shine is in Walpole.
A dealer will look at a modded car and 90% of the time say "oh all this crap is gonna cause problems" because they don't know what they're looking at, and often modded cars DO have problems. Brian's or Shine actually know VW aftermarket and will be able to evaluate the whole car. Shine will tell you it's a POS because it's too low, but he'll give you a good evaluation otherwise.

Absoultly. I get all my work done there. Joe ( the owner) did a turbo conv. in my corrado G60, and I get some stuff done there on my 1.8T Jetta. He is the MOST honest guy you will meet. http://www.jwsvws.com
It looks differenet now he took out the waterbox and made the windsheild washer tank the new waterbox. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
