Default Good Mechanic in COS?

I did a search of this forum, and didn't come up with much. Seems to me I read about someone that was good and had all the diagnostic tools to boot, but it was before the I-Club site re-design.

I just ordered the short-shift kit and the full suspension kit for my WRX wagon, but I have no interest in taking it to Hueberger. They treated me soo bad on my buying experience that I ended up buying from Boulder. They tried, "No sir, Subaru's web site (and CarsDirect.com, and CarPoint) is wrong . . . this is the real MSRP". Oh, and my personal favorite, "You're not going to get out of the dealer handling charge". Needless to say, I did . . . at the dealer in Boulder where they don't try to inflate the MSRP. Anyway, if their service staff is cut from the same weasel cloth as their sales staff, I'm not interested. ** End-O-Rant **

Anyway, anyone know who the good Scooby Mechanics are?

And NO, I don't have any interest in doing it myself. I'm already booked up with Honey-Dews until December.

Default Did a better Search

Ok, I did another search (service instead of mechanic - who knew?) and I came up with SubySports; which I'm pretty sure is the one I remembered reading about before.

Everyone still pretty satisified with their work?

Default Subysports for sure!

Braden is a great guy . . . knowledgeable and honest. He saved a buddy of mine big $$$$ on a DSM (Talon) that another shop screwed up on.

TimberBash-
I'm interested in finding out how the kit works out for you. I've been considering it for my wagon. I've heard good things about it, especially that it doesn't lower too much (less than an inch I think). I already have the rear sway bar part of the kit and that alone made a big difference.
I asked around a bit ago and everyone recommended Subysports. I'll go there next time I have something out of my league to install.
I agree with the Hueberger rant--they are pretty much worthless there.

Definitly got to recommend Braden at Suby Sports. Very honest guy, does very good work, and doesn't overcharge you!

So far he has installed my Blitz DSBC. I am going to have him install my new VF22 and MRT 3" turbo back exhaust system (which he also sells) as well... hopefullly sometime next week when it all gets here.

If you need directions let me know.

Thumbs up

Gotta add my 0.02 -

I have no hesitation letting Braden work on my car. He is professional and knowledgable. To date, I have heard nothing but positive reviews regarding his work. 'nuff said.

Thumbs up Thanks!!

All Right! Great responses! I love this!

Based on all your responses, I stopped by Suby Sports today and met with Braden. He gave me an incredibly clear demonstration of why the STi short-shifter is superior to the "just the rod" (e.g., Kartboy) shifters. Hard to explain without a transmission to demonstrate with like he did, but the STi solution definitely results in a more linear transmission of the shift motion to the rod that comes out of the transmission.

It was also nice when he immediately said, "Oh, I saw your post on i-Club", and then proceeded to tell me about the i-Club members discount on labor.

Todd Stratton - I too, am eager to see how the suspension works out. Everything I've read in the Suspension forum says that it does lower the car just a bit over a half inch, and that the kit results in much better tracking at high speeds without much penalty in harshness. My daily commute includes 2 miles of gravel road (some washboards but not bad) with a delicious S-curve that I love to get sideways on in my Jeep. So I don't want too stiff, but I felt the highway ride was a bit squirmy. I'm hoping this is the ticket!

Thanks for the Help!
