    anybody recommend a good VAG indie in the Reading/Wokingham area? Mk5 Golf, 1.4TSi turbo/superchage engine.....had issues in the past with local garages in Bedford who were flummoxed by the complexities and it wound up at main dealer costing a fortune.
    cheers...

    thanks for getting in touch, Mark
    Thankfully we got sorted with the last lot - turbo blades damaged (led to an MOT fail on emissions) and water pump clutch and belt. Warrantywise paid for most of it! The car seems to be running OK at present, but my daughter just wanted to know if there's a specialist she could call on next time, rather than pay VW rates. She lives in Spencers Wood, and works in Shinfield, so where you are would mean crossing Reading. She's had issues with the turbo before (4 years ago) and some sensor trouble that all took time to diagnose and resolve, as well as an intermittent fuel pump problem (would sometimes refuse to start when warm, or start and tick over but not rev or pull away).
    It's just a complex beast, I think. If it lasts another couple of years we'll change it for a GTi or GTE. More complexities there...
    I'll keep hold of your number - do you offer courtesy cars at all?
    Cheers, andrew
