    Question Service in TVL

    Hi Guys,

    I bought a Golf TDI 2002 about 2 months ago and need to do the log book service (110k miles mark), which includes changing the timing belt. I'm avoing the local VW dealer as it is usually very expensive. Do you know of a good and affordable mechanic in Townsville to do this job? Searching the net I found this site http://www.servautogroup.com.au/volk...GEN%20%28VW%29 suggesting two VW "specialists" in TVL: Twin Cities Automotives and Allen Street Automotive. I got a quote from them and it is nearly half the dealer's price. Has anyone have any experience with any of these two? Thanks a lot. Cheers.

    No, sorry mate, but I'll ask around at work.

    I haven't heard anything bad about the two mentioned but I am keen to hear other's opinions.
    I just got my polo serviced at dealer - and while pricey the level of customer service was great by townsville standards

    I originally went to Dealer with my Passat, customer service great, cost ridiculous!
    I have since called Twin Cities Auto for a quote and also got great customer service and a great price..

    I do everything myself-but I have always got good customer service from the dealership if I needed to get parts.

    The factory item can be had for just under 200us if your really concerned but id go for the bosch item (not like its an un-herd of brand) Should be easy to replace too.
