my number is 303 322-6613
ur right werner's good and seems competent, but i really love to work on my
audi but i have to get a repair manual first.
got this from audifans.com mechanic information
have u tried this shop?. I already talked to mark mertz on the phone but
this is a one man shop, have to schedule an appointment.
Supercar Services - Mark J. Mertz (dlawson at ball.com) 1210 W. Custer Place
Denver, CO 80223 303.722.3337
Works on a number of Audi turbo quattro coupes along with Ferraris,
Maserati's, and other such cars. I have never had any service performed
here, but have met with Mark on a number of occasions and have seen his
work. Very competent and high quality workmanship.
this one i have to check first.
Jeff Chandler Motorsports (dlawson at ball.com) 4439 N. Braodway Unit G
Boulder, CO 80304 303.444.2585
Porsche and Audi factory trained, 1 man, independent repair shop that
performs very high quality work. He works on my 83 Ur and a number of
others. Also works on many other Audis/quattros and Porsches.
Sport Wheels (dan at di.com)
3030 Grand Av. Glenwood Springs, Colorado 81601
I have an excellent mechanic that I used to put my '83 Ur Quattro back
together when the engine blew apart. He specializes in the TQC, but can
handle any other Audi. He's honest and very helpful. By the way, this is the
guy that writes the "Tips from Uncle John" articles in the Quattro Quaterly.
Hope this helps...

Try, but I had no luck last summer looking. There is a shop that carries
Audi parts down in south Denver, but I don't have the Phone# on me. Will
get it at home tonight-what's your number? Werner's seems pretty good, but
I would really like to find an Audi-only shop, preferably one specialzing in
the 5-cyl. and older cars. (Yeah, right...) Like the Audifans sticker
