You don't find one in CT. When I broke down in Hartford, I had the car towed to
Springfield Mass courtesy of AAA+, and per Bob D'amato's advice. Took it to a
dealer there.. Father's and Son's.

What I can say is that, for a dealer, they weren't bad. They didn't charge me
any B.S. fees.. just the cost of the part and the labor. However, I had written
explicit instructions on exactly what work I wanted done.

I know I could have saved money by taking it to my usual mechanic, but that was
simply too far away from where I was stranded.. with a busted clutch slave

If you need to find and independent garage, ask owners of late-model European
cars. Ask enough people and you'll figure out who does good work on German
cars, especially Audis. I would probably even ask strangers in a parking lot if
that's what it took!
