Listing of Chicagoland Shops Thread


Ready to race!
Creating this thread as a way for locals to find the shops that are recommended through our forums, without having to filter through a ton of various threads. Feel free to post here if you have a recommendation/good experience with a place or feel I need to add a category. I'll be adding/changing things to the list as we get more posts.

very nice... can you add Delta Sonic in Elmhurst too? Their monthly deal is awesome, I have it at $12.99/mo, but I think they raised it to 16.99 - either way, great deal if you use it.

Can anyone vouch for Dub Werks? (Please dont take offense Rich :thumbsup:)
I stopped by Dub Werks around 6-8 months ago and they were nice, but weren't able to help me with my (I admit) noobish request. They had some sweet VAG cars out in the parking lot and in the shop though. Also, the guy I talked to raised some concerns with the V6 supercharged motor in the S4, whiched helped to steer me to the MKVI GTI.

Really? I find this one interesting - what do they do exactly? and how well versed are they with our cars?


Ready to race!
Ya, they do anything from trubo upgrades to basic repair. Also a Uni dealer so they are pretty well vessed in our cars i'd say. Always a lot of VAG car's in their lot everytime i've been there. They did my coilover's, and Jason definetly know's his shit. Look them up on FB
