First post, so here goes ...
Never owned a Merc before but now am the proud owner of a 2010 E500 Cab, with just 22,000 kms on the clock.
My first impression of ALL the Sydney dealerships (Parramatta, Sydney, Mosman, and East Sydney) is that they seem to have forgotten who the customer is.
I've also found that any problem or request is diagnosed by VIN and invariably "computer says no".
I don't mind paying money for valuable work - I race an old classic in tarmac rallies and it sets me back 5 figures a year. But it shits me to tears when I walk into a glamorous showroom dedicated to selling cars and little concern for anything else.
SO - I'm after a good mechanic who will treat me well and not waste my time. The Star guy in Brookvale sounds good because that's where my Porsche guy is.
Does he have Star Diagnostics? What even is Star Diagnostics? Do I need it?
Anyway look forward to being part of this forum.
Cheers and Beers.
