    Indi Shop in San Diego

    The time has come for timing belts on my new to me 69,000 mile RS6. Wondering if anyone has recommendations for a shop in San Diego. I want to do the job myself, but work has me busy and I don't have the time.

    Thanks!

    Still PureMS in Miramar area or Raven in Long Beach.

    Avoid Miramar Audi.

    Possibly Audi Escondido...
    SOLD - 03 RS6 Avus (905355)
    Current - 03 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 double cab - the YETI, lifted, winched, snorkeled, lockered, skidded, geared

    Raven Motorsports in Long Beach is great. They sorted out my RS6 when I picked it up last year. Quality work and good prices. They definitely know the RS6

    I hate to say it, but PureMS is no longer a favored spot for repair of the aging RS6 -- they just won't work on the car if they cannot source parts directly from Audi... in my case MAF airbox seals, turbo seals, etc.

    I'm trying to resolve low MAF 2 airflow that's probably the result of a failing turbo on that side (thank you @nubcake, who gets all the credit for discovery). No low boost code(s) yet, but plenty of cylinder ignition retardation and inadequate MAF 2 airflow when data logged. Following shop diagnosis, the recommendation (verbatim) from PureMS when I asked "what should I do?" was (dryly), "Sell the car." I then confirmed explicitly that they will not work on a car if they can't source a legitimate Audi part. For example, my car already has an aux cooling fan that's OE for a Passat, with a re-wired wire bundle connector -- same fitment, just needed a slight re-wire. PureMS won't do anything like this.

    Unfortunately, Raven seems permanently closed. Does anyone have a solid San Diego recommendation for a shop that will work "outside the box" in terms of creatively sourcing parts? Has anyone else run into this issue with their trusted shop?
