      This guy rocks. Marin is a total straight shooter and super down to earth about the condition of your car. The service is top notch, super efficient, most importantly in the neighborhood and not tied to a price driven dealership trying to take advantage of customers.

      I took my 2001 Jetta in for some brake work and got my brakes fixed and a complete review of all the stupid recommendations the dealer told me i need when in fact i did not. Also, I am taking in my 2008 Jetta for transmission flush and tune up (quote that Marin gave me on this nobody can beat in the area)

      I was very pleased by his efficiency, honesty and great service!

      I cant say enough good things about Marin.....GO GO GO......

      Well ,
      Again I am so glad I found this guy.
      My friend needed timing belt on his 2006 TDI . Dealer quote did not make him very happy. He asked me do I know anyone and I told him about Marin.
      He called him and he was very happy when Marin gave him quote. Marin did timing belt with water pump for almost 40% less then dealer quote him and he used same quality parts..

      Simply said, Marin is a great independent VW tech!!! Recently I had some problems with my A/C on my Jetta 2001. Took that car to a different mechanics...they were going to chard me arm and leg to fix the problem. I called the dealer same thing...and somebody refereed Marin as a great independent VW tech...I called him, set the appointment the next day for consultations and check up. He found the problem right away. He replaced only items needed to be replaced....and now guess what, my A/C is blowing 45F...I am so happy that I was referred to this guy!!! Saved me money and time and my A/C is running great! If you want to contact him yourself call Marin 214-803-5966, will not be disappointed at all!

      Yes he can , he did this in friend of mine car .
      Excellent guy , very friendly and very knowledgeable about VW-Audi cars.
      He is the only one who does Keys, Cluster and ECU swap in DFW area on those cars.

      New on this forum. I have a 06 Passat 2.0 and yesterday brakes were completely gone. Went to the dealer and was told the hydraulic hose had a hole...probably due to a rat .. and was given a $500+ quote. Can anyone recommend a good shop in the Plano area ? I have heard about EuroSport...any idea on this shop or any other ?

      Hi,

      I need to replace the stabilizer bar bushings in a 2005 Jetta and the quote from the dealership was over $350. A quick search on google shows that I can save at least $100 on the parts only, but now the questions:

      - what site/store should I use to buy the parts?
      - what mechanic would you recommend? I've seen the praises for Marin, but how do I contact him?

      Thanks,
      Michal

      I also wanted to give an excellent review for Marin.
      He helped me get my 2001 jetta run again, after almost 6 months of trying to figure out what was wrong.
      I'd like to add also that before Marin, my car was at an other shop where I had a terrible experience. They kept my car for 2 weeks without being able to figure out the problem, taking the car apart and breaking various hoses and other plastic parts in the process... Marin nicely put all this mess back together.
      He really knows what he's doing, and will tell you up front what's going on with your car.
