Where to have VW Jetta TDI oil changed?

I’m just wondering if anyone has any good places to go get an oil change for a 2010 VW Jetta TDI.  This will be the first time it won’t be performed by a VW dealer because the free oil changes have expired. I’m assuming Foreign Affairs might be my best option. Normally I change my oil in all my vehicles but this is the first diesel engine I’ve ever owned, so I’m a little nervous to do it myself.

I've had good luck with a VW at SVS auto...20 something W superior st.  They specialize in most foreign cars

Second on SVS.  Nice folks, very knowledgeable. Foreign car specific shop (BMW, Audi, Volvo, VW, Saab, Suburu, etc.)

The (co?)owner of SVS is a former (co?)owner of Foreign Affair, and if you want to take it to a specialist, I back them, too. [Disclosure: Strome is a family friend and long-time repairer of family cars.]

I'll probably giving SVS a call later today.  Thanks for all the help!

I would vouch for them as well. Standup guys, no BS.

I'm thinking about buying an '09 TDI. I'd love to buy you a beer and chat newbie diesel sometime?

A GREAT resource for those interested in the TDI engine is tdiclub.com

You can have it serviced anywhere (I did all my own oil changes on my TDI.)  Just be ABSOLUTELY sure they use the oil specified in the owner's manual.  (VW/Audi spec 507.00)

The oil filter is right on top in the engine bay, it's really nice.
