Matt!

My car, is utterly insane!  Had a little line up a few times on the A41 with my mate in his 335i, think it’s a 3litre twin turbo with 300bhp.. Basically he didn’t get anywhere near was just pulling and pulling and pulling.. It’s awesome.

So, tell me, how much will stage 2 cost me roughly and how much more BHP will I get?!  you told me this was going to happen…………………..

Thanks again, fantastic service… can’t remember the last time I took my car somewhere and felt they went beyond the call
of duty

Ben O’Neill – Middlesex – MK6 Golf R

Hi Matt

I wanted to let you know how delighted I am driving my A3 now.

The DSG is now instant, smooth and predictable. The engine springs into life as it should. And my aircon no longer honks like a slugs backside.

Delighted.

I will be back with my car to fix its other faults and eventually to tune it up. I’ll also suggest to Mrs W she brings her A3 to you too.

Many thanks again
David Wilson – Bedfordshire – A3 3.2 DSG

Hi all,

Just wanted to thank you for the work on my car! The clutch feels a million times better with the new pipe on, and with the manifold work and re-map along with your service it propper shifts now, revs nice and freely and just keeps on pulling! It’s like a new car!

Thanks again!

Dave Harling – Bedfordshire – B7-RS4

Dear Vagtech,

I have been coming to vagtech for two years now and I am very pleased with how I and my car are treated. You get the same level of knowledge and professionalism as you would as main dealer, but at vagtech it more personalized and better value.

I would recommend vagtech to all my friends and colleagues

Chris Coles – Milton Keynes

Just a quick email to say a HUGE thank you for getting my Golf back on the road so quickly. The work carried out was very reasonably priced and I am always happy with the service received. Thanks again.

Anthony Parr – Bedford

Hi Jon, Vic and Ben.

After 5 years of bringing all my VWs to you, I wanted to say a big thanks for all your recent help, going that extra mile meant my car was ready for GTI International. See you there!

Claire Preston – Bedford

Their friendly yet professional approach, combined with a wealth of knowledge makes the wrench of leaving your baby all the much easier.

Dave Westwell – Luton – B5 S4 & Caddy Van

I have been a regular customer of Vagtech for over 2 years for both repair and modification to my car. It is extremely reassuring to know that your pride and joy is being looked after by genuine car enthusiasts and that their knowledge comes from many years of experience in the VAG scene. For honest, fast and experienced service I would definitely recommend Vagtech to anyone that cares about 1st class work for their vehicle.

Rupert Evans – Swanborne – MK5 R32

I would like to thank you all at Vagtech for the great work fitting the FT450 kit to my MKIV R32
It has totally transformed the car and I am very happy with it. The quality of the workman ship and the customer service before, during the install and afterwards is second to none.

Thank you Jon, Victoria and Ben.

Regards,

Paul May – Newcastle – MK4 R32 Turbo

I came across Vagtech in 2007 by chance, as I wanted someone local to put a trial Revo map on my S3. I was immediately struck by their knowledge and experience, and Jon and the team have looked after the car ever since. I believe that one of the most important aspects of performance car ownership is having trust and faith in the people looking after it. Vagtech tick all the boxes for me here. Jon has advised and helped me get the car to a state that I’m happy with, and is always willing to spend time talking things through and advising on different options. The peace of mind that comes with knowing that I trust Jon and the team at Vagtech, means that all I have to worry about is finding the money to spend on it!

David Kite – Milton Keynes – MK1 S3

Hi Jon & Vicki

These are just some of the reasons why I always will keep coming back to VagTech. Keep up the good work and I?ll see you in a few weeks for my next service.

Thanks again

Patrick Graystone – Luton – MK1 TT

Vagtech have always carried out the servicing, modifying, and repair work on my VW Golf and I have never been able to fault their work. Both in the workshop and behind the counter they have given me excellent customer service and would recommend them all day long…

Russell Barratt – Northampton

No job is too big or small for VagTech, everything is completed with the same high standard of work whether its a routine service or complete overhaul. Their knowledge and love for cars gives me complete faith and trust in leaving my pride and joy with them, knowing its in safe hands!!

Tom Clarke – Northampton

I started using Vagtech nearly 4 years ago after using another ‘specialist’ in the MK area and feeling disappointed with the standard and quality of service that I received.
From my first visit to present I have never ceased to be so ‘at home’ with the excellent way that they have treated both myself and my wife when she takes her car in for it’s annual service. Not only is the technical and mechanical side of Vagtech’s business run to a very high standard but, rarely found today, their personal customer service is without any doubt quite exceptional. A new neighbour to whom I recommended Vagtech told me after her initial visit that for the first time ever she left the garage and never once felt that she’d been patronised or ‘ripped off’. That to me is the highest accolade.

Chris Remmers – Leighton Buzzard

I live in the US, but keep a car for frequent returns to the UK. I can’t think of any other shop that would go the extra mile and make it so easy to keep the car looked after.

I trust Jon completely with the car. He is an enthusiast and understands well what other enthusiasts want. His insight has been invaluable in getting issues resolved and keeping my car running as it should. His advice on modifications has resulted in a series of upgrades that are well suited to the car and add to the overall ownership experience.

Jon helped me get a new engine. He has also fitted Milltek exhaust and Haldex controller as well as performance tyres to the car.

Paul Ritchie – USA – MK4 R32

A special thanks to all at Vagtech for doing such a superb job installing the HGP 460 turbo kit on my 2003 MK4 R32. 1+ year on, I am still loving the car as it now has….not only outstanding performance but more importantly reliability.

For those who do not know Vagtech, they are 100% hard working, honest and genuine people. Who are dedicated and passionate about their work on all VAG cars. Jon and Ben were very meticulous and thorough when working on my car, making sure that everything was in good correct working order before I picked her up for my 200+ mile journey home.

Thank you Jon, Ben and Victoria keep up the good work guys!

Best regards,

Richard Shek – Newcastle – MK4 R32 turbo

I’ve used Vagtech for a number of years and they’ve always done an excellent job. Even in the event of an issue beyond their control, like a faulty part, they go out of their way to ensure that it is rectified as quickly as possible. Great communication and customer service come as standard. Whether you are just after a service or a planning a modified monster, Vagtech are able to deliver with honest advice and pricing.

Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly service plus I dont trust my car to just anyone.

Neil Mc Callum – Watford – B5 RS4

I’ve recently gone back to VAGtech, having previously used some more convenient local garages, and its good to be back.
I’ve always been pleased with the work carried out by Jon and the team, the car always felt and ran better whenever I got it back, something I never experienced with the other garages.
The customer care and attention to detail is as good as I remember and the addition of a couple of courtesy cars is a definite bonus, I wont be straying again.

Nick Todd – Leighton Buzzard

I have used Vagtech for the last 3 years for all servicing and performance upgrades to my Golf R32. Having experienced both Dealer service and Vagtech I can honestly say that I would always choose Vagtech over a Dealer. Their technical knowledge, friendly approach, and pricing will always prevail. The nice part about dealing with Vagtech is Jon will always take time to listen to what you want, then talk through in detail what the best solution is , whether it is for upgrades or repairs. It is also nice to deal with like minded enthusiasts who take pride in what they do, rather than someone that is just doing their job!

Gary Whitehouse – Worcestershire – MK4 R32, MK4 R32 Turbo, Audi RS3

When my Audi TT engine blew to bits, I never dreamed of getting my car back on the road let alone the superb service and workmanship that I received when I approached Vagtech. From the minute I made contact to the minute I picked my car up everything was First Class. They were nothing but honest, trustworthy, reliable, 100% efficient and never once made me feel pressurized into making decisions I didn’t want or need to do. It was without doubt the top garage that the website had suggested. My car now runs like a dream and I would recommend Vagtech to anyone 10 out of 10.

Lee Allaway – Reading – MK1 SEAT Leon Cupra

Choosing VAGTECH gave me the reassurance and peace of mind that my car was being professionally maintained by qualified technicians in a reliable and independent garage at a competitive price. They explained everything to me in words that a non qualified person would understand, I would always recommend VAGTECH to all my friends and family.

History

Jon Watts a long time VW enthusiast and IT Professional, Jon has spent many years owning and preparing many different rare and iconic cars some of which you can see in the pictures on the right. Jon was looking for a new challenge and with his IT background and engineering degree started VAGtech Limited in 2003.

Having been a customer himself for many years Jon knew what was needed and has run VAGtech Limited with the philosophy of striving to give the customer the best possible experience. Jon believes by educating and passing on knowledge, experience and expertise to the customer to help them enjoy their pride and joy and make informed decisions when looking to service and upgrade their vehicle. Jon has not lost his passion for cars, owning different cars and modifying is still a key part of Jon’s DNA.

In 2002 Jon sold the E30 M3 Roberto Ravaglia to help finance to start up of VAGtech. In 2003 Jon built the MK2 Golf VR6, this led to VAGtech carrying out a whole string of MK1 and MK2 conversions in the early days with the odd MK2 Rally 1.8T for good measure.

In 2005 VAGtech under the guidance of Jon Watts (Managing Director) built the world’s first right hand drive turbocharged Golf R32 as featured in August 2005 Volkswagen Driver Magazine. This car paved the way for VAGtech to build 13 turbocharged 3.2 V6 cars in the UK.

In 2006 VAGtech built only the 2nd twin turbo charged Volswagen Beetle RSi in the world in conjunction with HPA Motorsports of Canada. Also in 2006 VAGtech built the first turbocharged 3.2 V6 TT DSG, winning both Saturday and Sunday Audi 4WD class at GTI International.

In 2008 VAGtech built the MK4 Golf GTI with a full K04 turbo conversion R line bumpers and side skirts and full KW suspension. ECS stage 5 brakes as featured in Performance Tuner magazine.

In 2009 Jon took delivery of the B5 RS4 a car he had always wanted to own, a low mileage very clean example was sourced and Jon and VAGtech went about some mild tuning and service work to put the RS4 in to tip top condition.

In 2010 VAGtech moved into it’s new purpose build premises in Bletchley Milton Keynes after 7 good years in Soulbury. Vagtech now in it’s 12th year has expanded it’s team further enabling to service our ever growing customer base to the standard our customer have come to expect.

In 2012 The VAGtech RS3 is delivered, over the next few years the car is developed and various tuning upgrades have been added. With 3 features in Audi Driver magazine this is the current VAGtech project car for Jon and the team at VAGtech. At GTI International in 2013 we ran a 12 second quarter mile in the RS3 in very hot conditions.

What will be VAGtech’s next project car ?
