Independent Shop in Denver?

Are there any updates and competent independence shops in the Denver area?

I have a major brake failure happening which I suspect is the brake booster. Pedal more or less goes to the floor.

Usually not the brake booster, although it can be. Check all your vacuum lines, pull them all , inspet all of them and check for cracks, and also check the diaphram on the vaccum pump if your Touareg is a TDI and not gas.

Brake to the floor indicates the master cylinder seals are shot, or you are low on brake fluid and it's now compressing air, due to massive brake pad wear without topping off the brake fluid.

Not sure if you found someone yet but i have been going to Eurosport Automotive in Arvada for 13+ years. Dave is the guy who runs shop and he is amazing. They are located roughly at 55th and lamar, red brick building with a Porsche painted on the front of the building. Phone# 303-423-3715.

Aircooled- I'm wondering if you found a good shop and resolved your issue. I'm in Arvada and I'm experiencing what sounds like exactly the same problem! My interactions with Emich VW have not been positive and want to find a competent independent shop. I've used Anuthee Hufstetter for replacing my tandem pump gasket he is very good but focuses on the TDI engines mostly. BTW I'm suspecting the master cylinder not brake booster. When I bled my brakes a year ago there were little rusty particles that came out in the old fluid.

And an update to my brake saga, still not repaired but I'm not driving it much these days. The vacuum pump is seized, (possibly due to a larger vacuum leak down the line?) and needs replacement before further diagnosis can proceed.
