Inexpensive Place for Timing Belt in North Jersey?

Hello all,

My 2005 Touareg V8 has about 76K miles on it but it is starting to say the coolant temp is high even though the gauge reads 12 o'clock. I think it is a temp sensor or the water pump. Either way, I was planning on doing the water pump, thermostat and sensors when I had the timing belt job done at 80K so I am thinking I should just get it all done now. I am in the northern NJ area (West Milford) - anyone know a place that will do all of it for a reasonable cost? Dealer quoted about 2300 without the sensors. Thanks in advance!

Mike - quick update. It took a little longer to make the appointment than I thought originally but I just got off the phone with Eurotech. GREAT initial experience and the price was MUCH better than my local dealer. I'll post again once the work is done but I am already impressed with them, thank you for their contact information!!!

Update for the group - this has got to be one of the best experiences with an auto mechanic EVER. They kept the cost down on the job I asked for (over 1K lower than the dealer quote) and did a FULL diagnostic on the vehicle, pointing out several areas that would need help eventually with quotes on each so I could decided when/if to do the work. The quotes were all VERY reasonable. When the job was in process, the team working on my car sent pictures (via text) so I could see their progress AND when I got the car back, she runs like a TOP! GREAT GREAT GREAT service. They have me for life now, which is extended to at least another 80k!! .
