Shop front

Welcome to the first installment of TAI VW. We are currently in a renovation stage that will feature a new blog, site, and gallery. The new TAI VW will serve as place to showcase, discuss, and collaborate with both the customers and enthusiast as well. Check back early and often for monthly specials, available products, services, and current shop projects!

    Hi! Just wanted to thank you for working on my car. I am so happy that she’s back up and running and I will try my best to keep up with taking her in for servicing. Also my a/c is awesome, I haven’t had a/c since 2002! Oh my gosh I am so happy =) Thank you so much for taking care of my car(s) for the last 10 years. I wouldn’t think twice about going anywhere else!

    Tom’s bad ass at what he does!! I’ve been to APR among other tuner shops and I think Tom’s among the best! Very professional and I’ve had no issues what-so-ever with my rides since Tom’s worked on them. Thanks Tom!!!

    What up Tom. Boring day at work and somehow I stumbled upon your site here. I just thought I’d share my thoughts that TaiVW is the real deal. If you’re on Oahu and own a VW/Audi product, there is NO other place you should go then TaiVW.

    I wish you all the best Tom. Very few private shops hold themself to the same level of expertise and proffesionalism you do.

    About a year ago I had Tom work on my R32 (04) with the REVO upgrade. The result was spectacular. The increased power and the increased rev limit allows the R32 to exceed 60 mph in second gear. I also had Tom install the 3 way switch for the exhaust. The car sound really hot with the exhaust wide open. The stock setting is retained with the exhaust opening at about 3500 rpm. The third setting is quiet all around. Tom is really top rate and really knows his stuff. I would really recommend Tom to anyone. I only wish his shop was closer to town.
