    in the Corona/Riverside area?

    Like a real speed shop? With parts on shelves and people behind a counter who know their shit?

    I like to see and touch things before I buy them. Not a fan of Amazon or whatever online buying of hard parts of possible.

    I'd call wolfsburg west and see if they could point you in the right direction. They're off Palisades and serfas club.

    They’re the ones in the old Lavey building off the 91 correct?
    For some reason I thought they were off-road truck guys?
    I’ll have to swing by and check it out!
    Thanks!

    KarTek in Riverside off the 91 is always good and they have EVERYTHING... it can just be a bit expensive.

    I found an old school VW shop off of Mckinely north of the 91 awhile back. I'm not sure if they are still around but it was just like you described. I'll do a little searching a see what if anything sounds familiar online.

    These guys online seem to have a ton of parts too

    Pacific Customs in Corona has a bunch of VW parts in stock they'll let you fumble with. The prices are best around and there are a few guys behind the counter who know their stuff. It's off Maple X 91fwy near McFaddenDale.

    Not in your area but check out PowerHaus VWs on Facebook. Friend John has been building some nice Motors. He has lots of inventory in Torrance and offers quite a few engine builds if you need a motor.
