Well, I didn't respond to your post when I saw it yesterday because you were asking for a dependable and honest mechanic to service a VW.

I take my M5 to Parkshore BMW as I trust them. Recently, they even offer discount parts and labour rates for older BMW's like mine. But that's for BMW's.

Why not make a post on a VW forum - you may get a better response there.

Sorry, can't help you much here....

I did post on vwvortex.com - no luck

there must be a reasonable mechanic (no BMW nor VW dealer) that people know of

please ask around if you can

www.brianjesselautohaus.com go in there and ask for Richard, he works from tues-sat. Just tell him Billy with the M5 sent u.

they do service for all makes and all their techs are BMW certified as the owner also owns a BMW dealership a few doors down the street.

I'm servicing my E39 M5 with them too, but on several occasions now they couldn't replicate the problem or weren't quite sure what's causing it.

Any other suggestions for a good mechanic in the Metro-Vancouver area?
