These guys specialize in VW Vanagons and VW Busses. They are good and know their stuff. I have my bus repaired there and have sent two friends there, who are now repeat customers (and happy ones, also!)

This is the only place I trust to work on air-cooled VW buses. I took my bus to another reputable german-specialty mechanic (will not mention here) and ended up running very rough and the mechanic suggested a new distributor for about $500. I took it to buslab and they fixed the rough idle and distributor for a fraction of the cost. They have many parts on hand and even fashioned some custom parts when aftermarket was not available. It can be difficult to get scheduled though as they are very busy. It can take a while to get scheduled, but its always worth the wait.
