I don't know of any high-end shops that do custom exhaust work, but I do know that the Rainbow Muffler on East Bay and Belcher in Largo will do custom work tailored to your liking. They installed my TT catback and my Remus muffler. They aren't the sharpest bunch of guys, but they will listen to what you want. In my case I got to be in the shop while they installed it, which allowed me to see exactly what they were doing every step of the way. Their price was very reasonable too.


Nice. Largo's a bit of a drive for me, but if the price is right...

I've even got pictures for them to work with. smokin.gif

Edit: What's their hourly rate?

Billy at Bert Smith can confirm this as he was previously employed by Lokey. He tells me that every tech at Bert Smith is at least into VW's. Most are VW Certified techs.

I know this is an old reply, but had many bad experiences with Lokey, the worst being them actually crashing my car in their lot. Many of their employees have jumped ship at the first chance they get. I now go to Bert Smith.

One quick thing.. I bought my car at Lokey, and i have the premium maintenance service package thing.. Can i use that at any VW dealership? I'd rather go to Bert Smith and let Billy work on my car, rather than the Lokey guys.

you should be good - I would either post in Billys thread titled something like 'are you under warranty' -OR- just PM him on here.  As far as I know, must automobile techs are hurting right now for work; no one wants to pay that labor fees when the economy is so bad.  So, if you know a reputable tech at a dealership and you can get the work done under warranty, everyone wins!

Just ask for Andy, Alex, or Zack.

I would trust my car with any of those guys, Andy is a great tech.
