I know a very good shop in Langley by Willowbrook Mall, if not too far for you. The tech is honest and used to work at MB for many years. He knows transmissions too.

El Prez is right - Kappa is AWESOME. The only tech to date to have set up my rear suspension accurately.

I am on the phone with AAA right now to have the car towed to KAPA.

Martin, KAPA would like to speak with you. You can call him on 604 721 5272.

Thank you very much Martin and thank you El Prez, Kapa is as good as you said he is...

If anyone knows a great transmission expert in Vancouver please do advise, but otherwise I will trust Kapa's recommendation as we are trying to repair this trannie so I can get back to USA...

Thanks all for the very useful info on best Mercedes shops in Vancouver. So to recap - Victoria, Hans and Juan seem to be the cream of the crop? Who'd be best to take an old Benz to for a pre purchase inspection?

Victoria, just because she can be brutally honest. A valuable trait.

Replacement Key

Hi. I need a replacement key for my 2007 SLK 350. I called Mercedes Service in Richmond, BC and they said it would cost $400 for the key and $100 for the programming. Does anyone know of a cheaper alternative?

Thanks!

Plus on this. You are probably referring to Walter @ Euro Class Motors. By far Walter is the most honest Mercedes mechanics I have came across. He was originally trained in Germany and worked at Mercedes on Boundary Road for decades, so his knowledge on Mercedes both old and new is hard to beat. The only downside is he is a one man shop so he is really busy, you really need to plan your visit to see him. It's not unusal for him to book up to 2 weeks in advance. Neverthless, honest and knowledgable MB mechanic is so hard to come by, that's why I take my car all the way from Vancouver to Langley to see him.
