[ba] Need To Find South Bay Audi Service Provider ...

I've used M&M recently, they replaced a torn CV boot
on my '00 S4.  They've seen the S4 quite a bit,
unfortunately.  I've had a lot of stuff break and
always at a bad time when I can't afford the time to
fix it myself (the torn CV boot was found Sunday
before T-giving and we planned to take the car to
Tahoe on Wed.- they fixed it on Tuesday.) They are
top-notch, good work and usually in/out the same day. 
But their prices are also top-notch.  They see a lot
of newer Audi's, and try to provide a dealer-like
level of service, but at near-dealer level prices.  
As for Brasil, he just moved his shop, I think it is
on San Fernando.  I haven't seen the new shop,
hopefully there is more room now.  I like John and he
has done a lot of work for me in the past.  I haven't
talked to him in a year or 2, but suspect his service
is about the same- good work, reasonable price but
always takes longer than you'd like.  The shop is just
him and one assistant, and he is often at the auctions
looking for cars he can fix up and resell.  He knows
older audi's very well but doesn't have much skill
with diagnostics on newer ones (I used Vag-com to help
him diagnose a no-start new beetle).  One plus is that
he is quite happy to let you provide parts, whereas at
M&M that is a no-no.
So for the clutch replacement, I'd take it to Brasil
if I can afford a few down days, but the S4 t-belt I'd
take to M&M.
