Default New Subie owner looking for tuner/shop in SE PA area...

For the past few months I've been enjoying my '06 LGT spec.B, but like everyone else, I'm itchin' for some mods. After owning 2 VWs over 7 years, our new baby (now 2.5 months) helped me make the decision to change things. I used to own a '99.5 Mk4 GTI VR6. Good car and ran solid until I traded it at 80k miles for an '04 R32. The R32 kicked rear, but after we had the baby, I kept thinking that 2 doors is going to suck when dealing with a baby carrier. That lead me where I am today... with the spec.B.

Now for my question: Are there any tuners/shops in the SE PA area that can do suspension installs? I recently ordered a set of STi pink springs, which should match up well with the OEM Bilsteins according to the several reviews I've read.

I found Xotic Motorports in Cochranville (from the FAQ), which appears to be just west of Kennett Square. That's not too bad of a drive from Pottstown. How are they?

Someone on legacygt.com told me there might be one in Downingtown, but wasn't 100% sure. Any others?

With the baby here, the mods will come slowly, but next year I'd like to at least to a Cobb Stage 1 reflash and replace the crap STi STS with a Cobb STS.

Thanks for any info.

Well... I visited Xotic Motorsports this past weekend. Andy had no problems with the installation of my specB pink springs and STi pitch & trans mounts. The price for install was quite reasonable as well.

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll definitely be going back for additional mods. Now I'm hooked.

For anyone who's interested, here's the topic at legacygt.com:

A few pics are on the first page (Myles' specB, from RaceComp).

My review is on the last page... it pretty much jives with Myles' experience.
