I go there about once a month, I'll take care of my rear brakes pads and rotors and get all my fluids changed.
the vw parts in mexico are made in mexico and are a good bargain, even at the dealership. make sure you tell the parts dude that you live in mexico now, and that you think mexico is the best thing since sliced bread, or else he'll bill you as a gringo.
the parts dude knows that the parts south of the border are cheaper, and if your spanish slang isn't the best, he'll tax you for being a gringo by not giving you any type of a good guy discount.
the parts dude knows that his employer is making a nice cut on the parts you are buying, and even tough he makes no commission on parts sold, he is making the dealership money, and looking good whilst doing it.
