On a late afternoon of the 8th of September I had an unfortunate and a very frustrating incident with my Golf IV GTI R while driving from Centurion to Boksburg,
This basically rendered the car un-drivable. I tried calling VW, my companyy’s insurance, and a few people I know who could help me but to no avail!
As a last resort I called Elton from TurboChip (whom I had not met at the time) for assistance and he was there within an hour. That says something about the dedication of the guy to his work. He checked what was wrong and confirmed that it was bent valves due to cambelt failure. He arranged for my car to be towed and stored safely till his team could work on it that coming Monday. Once the work was started I was kept up to date with all the progress until the work was completed. I’m not a mechanic but I’m a qualified electronic engineer and I read a lot about car mechanics especially on VW brand.
I actually serviced my old Golf III myself. The work carried out in dismantling, fixing and putting everything back together again was impeccable, the guy really knows what he’s doing. Anyway, once the engine was repaired it was Elton’s turn to tune the car for maximum performance by upgrading the chip and a free-flow exhaust system.
The end result was impressive and resulted in a car that is more powerful with better throttle response and slightly better fuel efficiency, it sounds better too. I’m very pleased with the results and most of all the kind of professional service and customer care that I received from Elton. I would recommend TurboChip to all VW and AUDI drivers anytime.
