2.0T FSI Carbon Buildup cleaning

Hello fellow human beings,
I have an '06 2.0t Audi A3. Those engines are notorious for carbon buildup on the intake valves. Long story short, mine is in need of cleaning, which involves pulling the intake manifold.

Anyone has had it done at a garage somewhere in the lower mainland? The stealership is quoting me $1225+tx which is obviously a lot of money for the task. Anyone with a good experience somewhere else, at a better price?

Quick follow-up on this: I've contacted Vancouver West Motors and they quoted me ~$700 for the cleaning. They also recommended changing the injectors, which I was considering. They seemed very knowledgeable and aware the the carbon build-up issue. Good experience so far, I'll get the job done tomorrow. I'll post my impressions of the car post-cleaning for those who were thinking of getting it done to their FSI car as well.

This section doesn't get much love, but I know that my friend did it at PG Performance and got a decent price. I forget what they charge for it but quite a bit less than the dealer, of course.
