So I'm looking to get my set up installed on my MKV (Bilstein dampers + Neuspeed springs and RSB). I'm in Pasadena/626 so was looking at shops up here, and was most impressed with Eurasian. Ara seems like a top-notch mechanic. Quoted $450 w/ alignment, which is a lot, but I'm willing to pay for quality.
I'm not sure about how much VW (esp. MKV) experience he has. Saw lots of BMWs at his shop, but no V-dubs. And, he said the install will take two full days -- wondering if that's b/c he's unfamiliar w/ the car, or he just wants to take a long time to do the job right?
I've read so many great things about EF1, plus they're cheaper and of course they've worked on plenty of VWs. But it's about 45-60 mins each way.
Thoughts? Stick w/ the local shop or is EF1 worth the drive?
Thanks in advance for your input!

I have had work done at EF-1 and can tell you that you won't be disappointed. Great work, great shop, and a worthy reputation. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Good choice.
It is also the choice of SoCal R32 owners...

Ara @ Euroasian is a little more expensive but does top notch work. EF1 is a good shop also but his workers will be doing the install most likely. Ara will be doing it himself he is a one man show. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

EF1 does good work. They've installed coil overs on most of the SoCal R32 cars. They did KW V3s and control arms in record time on my old R at the best price out there. Recommended. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I've been to Eurasian twice. The guy also techs my car for open track days.
I can recommend Eurasian.
