I'm definitely not against Chris, I will probably use him in future, I just know what op meant. I'm just against people of the "You're an idiot if you let anyone else besides a shop do it" mentality. Also, If I had a nearly new car, I'd take it to a reputable person if I wasn't trying it myself.

Wow, quite the troll job going on.
I have a guy who does work for me when I don't have the time, he's a VW/Audi enthusiast and one of the few people I trust to work on my car when I'm not watching. His name's Mike, he's always up for side jobs.

Some people can do work themselves on cars. Some people know people who can do work and will help them out or do it for them cheap. Some people can't do the work themselves, and dont have friends to help them...... and for those people there are mechanics.
Have you even googled that job. 5.5 hours is overkill? How would you know, you never did it yourself, and sounds like you've never done anything yourself on a car. You need 2 specialty tools to do it, or need to fuck around with figuring out your own special homebrew tool to get around VW's specialty tool requirement. For the front uou remove the endlinks, drop the front control arm, and then you spend 30 minutes looking at what the fuck you do next to get the strut out. If you got 2 other people to do it for you before, you have absolutely no excuse for not doing it yourself this time around if it's 'super easy'. How did you pay so little attention to the last 2 installs that you learned nothing? You could at least do your own rear end, as you would not use a hoist for that, and it is one bolt with no spring compressor needed..... then pay book time to do the front.
Bitching that a forum you have 6 posts on wont drop everything and rush over to do your springs for you is pretty autistic. Don't let the aspergers hit you on the way out.

This thread feels more like "good old" 780tunas. It makes me happy.
Seriously though, OP should have probably negotiated upgraded springs and installation right through the dealership, and financed it... lol.
I was genuinely trying to be helpful by recommending Chris. I know that if I, personally, owned a hoist - I wouldn't be inviting every random poster off the internet to come to my house and do work on their cars, for next to free.
I know OP said bye felicia.. But I know quite a few people that go to Pug City with their VWs.
But I am sure it will still be more then the pennies the OP is trying to pay lol.
