Thank you for the comment and welcome to the forum. I think the shop are also happy that you bring in your own parts. I have been shopping cross the border and getting tons of deals.

I bought my Mercedes (first one) at White Rock Sports & Imports in White Rock just off Hwy 99 in December 09 and I also had it serviced recently there as well. While he's scaled down his business from what he had before (only one mechanic now instead of four), I found that he was very honest with his pricing and what he charges for servicing and even his vehicle inventory are definitely reasonable.

Try Whites automotive in North Vancouver. I was recommended from a friend and have a 280 CE. I brought it in for an overview as I had just purchased the car. The mechanic is Mercedes trained and spent the time to explain a few things and look the car over. We came up with a things to do list and I left with no invoice after spending about 1.5 hours on it. I was very impressed with his knowledge and ethics.

well, not looking for freebies but value work. MB Richmond would always want everyone to pay diagnosis fee ($190) even it is just a simple visual inspection. That is what we call a RIP OFF. It is an industrial standard to give free estimates or RFP before any work.

Do you have the phone number of the shop for us?

Going back to Henneken for a second, I stopped by about a year or two ago, spoke with the manager at the front desk about my W126. He was very informative and helpful, despite the fact that I only stepped in, unannounced, without the vehicle, and was only looking for advise and not service. +1 for Henneken.

looking for a place in GVA to do tranmission fluid change and other non-DIYable service items, any good and reasonably priced shops recommended?

seems like Henneken is a heavy favourite locally, any others?

Good to know that. What service did you have with them? What is the price?

Werner's in Delta

Cautious recommendation for Werner's Auto Klinick in Delta. I had a prepurchase inspection there, did a good job quickly and charged $85 for it, and after taking time to explain things nicely, quietly said to me that if I didn't buy it for that price, he would be very interested, so you know he likes them.

He is a BMW fanatic but there were a number of MB's in the lot awaiting service.

I've upgraded the headlights to Euro style Bosch since this photo... wow what a difference

Hi all fellow owners, i have a 1990 560SEL and two 300 SD's. I highly recommend my mechanic, she, thats right SHE! is Mercedes trained and is also a computer technicial. She is not cheap, but brilliant! and often does not charge me for basic info and advice. She has a small shop in Burnaby with a couple of younger guys that seem pretty good, but she is the brains behind the organization.

She is totally fair and knows all Mercedes and VW. Is focused on price and knows which cheaper German products are better than OEM for the price.

Norwescan Motors
6851 Palm Ave, Burnaby BC V5J 4M1
604.433.8863

I am interested in getting together with other W126 owners in teh area.
