Hi all,

Does anyone have a recommendation for an Indy in the London area to replace the timing chain & tensioner on a '09 GTI ?

I'm in NW London, but prepared to travel as I want it done right.

Anyone tried VWSC in Harrow?

Hi mate,

I recommend VDS Performance in Redhill, Surrey. (
James there is a VW master tech and really knows his stuff.

I paid £755 for replace the timing chain, tensioner, guide rails, seals/gaskets etc and also carry out an engine oil change service and inspection he also did the balance shaft chain/tensioner etc at the same time.

I was very happy with the price and the service and will be going back in future for anything else.
