Mark Cervelli and Mike Ging (the two mechanics at Wolfsburg) are the only
ones I trust to touch any VW/Audi. I grew up in Boulder, and have had
somewhere around 35 or so watercooled VWs, and have had them serviced at
various shops over the years. Once I found Wolfsburg, I never looked
I am glad Slipstream has treated you well, and if its NON-OEM type work
you need, they are a better bet than Wolfsburg. Mark is a by the book,
factory trained tech, he's not much for aftermarket modifications.
Just so you understand where I am coming from, I could probably be
considered a "disgruntled customer" of Slipstream. I won't go into it,
but lets just say my opinion of them is very low after an incident quite a
few years ago. Seems what happened to me is isolated, as I have run into
several other Audi owners locally that have never had an issue.
Now Tom, you don't own a 91 pearl white 200 20vT do you? With a custom
plate that has something to do with skiing? Grey leather interior? You
had it for sale a couple of years ago? Cause, if so, Hello again, and
glad you decided to keep it. Too bad our deal didn't work out! And, I

car in comparison to the Audi 90 (that is, if you are who I am thinking

If you need OEM type work, for a reasonable price, give them a try
sometime, you'll not be dissapointed. BTW, I am a bit biased, he is my
favorite mechanic, AND my wife now runs the office there! She'd remember
the car if you are who I think you are.
