hey guys,
anyone ever dealt with MILO on kingsway and SALISH Auto in N.Van?
i am due for a ton of work on my wagon: head gasket, rad flush, transmission replacement, motor mounts, muffler/pipes, rear end ( not all at once god forbid ).
and as for used parts do we have any other yards in vancouver other than ACE German off Marine in Burnaby? Their prices are insane.
thx

I have never dealt with either however have used Whites in North Vancouver. Their mechanic is very good on MB. For parts, there is a small garage on Kingsway ave in Poco that sells parts at decent prices. Can't remember the name at this time but just look for the MB's outside.
Hope that helps and good luck.

My First Post.
I drive an '02 CLK 320 and switched service to Werner's Auto Clinik about 3 years ago. He had been servicing our Acura 3.5R for a few years also. Nothing seems to stump him and when he says it will be done it is! Amazing Eh? I have never known he hourly rate and it does't bother me because the results and time taken are great.

Regards

Salish Auto Haus on Pemberton in N. Van

I am also interested in any opinions on the Auto Haus on Pemberton in North Vancouver, I was sorting out my stereo next door to them (at Speaker City, they recently moved to N. Van, they can deftly handle weird old MB setups) and noticed a large collection of 80's and 90's MB's in their lot, so went and talked to one of the mechanics and they seemed knowledgeable and enthusiastic about older MB's, so it seems worth a try. If I don't get advice here and I go, I'll post a response.

Also, I'm curious about T C Motors in Victoria, but can't find a place in this forum for Vic, anyone from Victoria here?

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

north van

I dealt with Salish Auto in the late 90's and they did some work on my
1976 450 sel (rip) and they did a great job. I was at the time a family friend
and haven't been back in about a dozen years. I always recommended them but I heard a lot of negative feedback from other benz owners so i'm not sure what to say anymore. Anyone else have any feedback...and if you do go (cloaking device ) let me know how it went,
cheers.

TC Motors is excellent. All the work they've done on my cars has been top notch, and I've spent a number of dollars there over the years. When there was a bit of an issue, they took my car in for two hours on short notice and gave it back, fixed right, for no charge. Really good guys. Busy shop.

Henneken is very thorough and a little pricey, but certainly one of the best in Vancouver. I have used them many times in the past and can reccomend them.

Milo's European Car Specialists on Kingsway is another good knowledgable shop, they did the transmission replacment on my 190E and I was very happen with the work. Would reccomend them as well.

Recently however I have found a small independent shop that does great work for a good price in Surrey. I am happier with the work and service than any other shop I have ever dealt with.

The previous owner just sold the shop to another great mechanic and is still somewhat involved with the business by appointment. The new owner is a European trained mechanic with all the latest goodies for diagnostics.
