Day At Dent Sport Garage

I needed to get my corner balancing done, as well as have a few clunks checked out with my end-links. Who better to call than DSG? Right off the bat, their service was excellent. They jumped in my car, took it for a spin, and figured out what the clunking was. I guess I missed the memo on using lock washers with end-links.
As for the corner balancing, night and day difference. Before, it definitely handled like a charm, very stiff and agile. Now, it feels like she just wants to move any way you tell it to. When you take a sweeping turn, a car usually settles into it and then turns, right? With this, it feels as though the car is 100% settled at all times. It reminds me very much of my friend's M3 with his Coilover setup with sways. I am really impressed with their service, quick timing, and just all around everything else. They had to also fix up a mess I made on one of the under body braces in which I snapped a bolt in by mistake, and even that was done well.I'm really impressed with DSG's work, and the car feels excellent. I highly recommend anyone who has gotten to the point that their car is starting to confuse service techs at the dealership, to check out DSG. I'll be stopping by there another point soon for a quick fix to my oil pan, so look forward to another post from there work.

Where'd you hear about DSG?

Believe it or not, I heard it from some Evo/STI owners talking about it at Hot Import Nights couple years ago. They were saying "Oh WOW a Evo from DSG! MUST BE NUTS" sort of deal. I looked more into it..Saw the website. Not long later, got my RX8 and once I got more into racing and tuning, saw you guys had a university so I figured,"why not? Great oppertunity to meet them!" And there you have it Ron. Not bad, huh? :D Now they're pretty much the only guys going to be doing work on my car unless it's dealership specific.

Marc, thanks so much for writing such nice things about us. Let me know if you come up short on the dyno day in terms of numbers and we'll work something out. We want to hear some rotaries on the rollie.

Hey Alex!
Thanks a lot for the kind words. Glad to hear it, and thanks for the offer. I'll be trying my hardest to get as many people as possible though from the NEPOC crew. Sadly I have only about 5 rotaries, but that is still better then none. I'll be contacting you a week before the dyno to discuss the details, maybe BBQ or something. Catch you soon!
