MKV GTI revo stage 2+ K03
FOR SALE: Brand New Autotech Pumps $400 (VW TFSI, Audi TFSI, Golf R, Scirocco, MK5 GTI, MK6 GTI, ED30 + 35, Audi S3)
That's fair enough but I had two major probs with their work on my original gti and a close friend mine didnt have his fuel pump reconnected. Not trying to bad mouth vw village and they may have made improvements to their practice but just think customers should be aware that there are no vw specialists or tuners that do perfect work and you should all keep your eyes open
When I first bought my VR I took it to Autohaus Strecker in Alexandria - the previous owner had taken it there in all his ownership of the car and seemed to recommend it, so I didn't have a problem with that. One day, in one of the Mk3's usual emergency breakdown moments, I think it was the drivetrain bolts that had snapped off the axles and grounded me in the middle of CBD peak hour traffic @ 4pm. Towtruck trip following, I decided to go to VW Village instead of Strecker simply because it was around the corner from my house and I didn't feel like travelling for long to get back home.
George stayed back after hours helping me unload the car off the towtruck (Friday arvo, mind you. I would've wanted to fuck off as soon as I saw a broken VR6 approaching...), started working on the car right there and had it finished Saturday noon before I even woke up. Bloody legend, and have had nothing but spectacular experiences with the lot of em ever since. Cannot recommend them more
No longer rockin the VR-Sex. Onto bigger and better.
George is alright by my experience! He had the patience to do the experimental retrofit of OPS onto my GTI. No one else had done anything like that; I exhausted all my google skills to find good info.

Just thought I would give an update.
I just got the car back from VW Village, the cost to have the brake pads and discs on the front replaced was $520 including parts and labour. I was surprised to be informed that they use OEM parts.
The only thing I have to mention is to confirm the price, as when I went to pay they tried to charge more. I kindly mentioned this to this to them and they rectified this.
One thing I would like to ask, I find that the brake peddle seems to have more ‘play’. I am not sure if it’s just me or if it due to the new brakes. Can someone shed some light on this?

George did the REVO tune on my GTI. Top guy, great to chat to, and the tune was awesome (I was super happy with it, and his service). They were also the first people to sponsor this forum and they wanted nothing in return. IE: No trader room, etc etc, nothing. Just happy to help.
You just read my sig
Just did my 45k service yesterday at VW Surherland as my first 15, 30, 45 services were included.
They recommended replacing the pads and discs but said that I have about 3mm on the pads and I could probably wait another 5000km.
I decided to wait as I figured it's best to checkup on the forums for better alternatives for a similar outlay. They wanted $650 all inc.
If one wasn't go to with this option, or the slightly reduced VW Village offer in this thread (both using OEM), then what pads and rotors are recommended?
