View Full Version : Mahalo to Thomas at TAI-VW...

Thanks also to the folks here that spread the good word around about his shop in Wahiawa.[up]

Yesterday, I took my B6 in to get new ECS slotted rotors and Hawk HPS pads installed. Basically, my rear pads were down to the backing.[eek] OEM rear pads must be a softer compound because they wear way faster and dust a whole lot more than the fronts.

After I left TAI-VW, I did the recommended bed-in procedure on an empty side street (folks must have thought I was learning how to drive or something). So far, not a squeak nor a peep out of the pads. I haven't stood on the brakes yet, but the at least the feel is noticeably better than OEMs. I'll get a better sense once the pads and rotors are better bedded-in.

Thanks again, Thomas, for the great work.[wrench] It was also cool to finally admire that slammed TT in person.[tt] Even though I live and work in town, it's worth the drive[drive]

That reminds me I gotta do my brakes too. Congrats on your new mod![up]

Thanks, man. It'll be nice to not have dirty wheels only two days after washing the car.

Hey David, Can I ask how much he charged cause I've got new rotors, pads, and brake lines waiting to be installed. If you don't want to post the price you can PM me.
