I service my SLs at Young Street Garage. They are expensive (110/h as of 2013), almost to dealership range. You have to take YSG recommendations with a healthy dose of skepticism, especially during less busy times they are concerned with keeping their multiple mechanics busy 40h/week. At the same time you don't have to worry about quality of work, they are not known for cutting corners or using glue and duct tape. No matter what you need they have someone who have done it before and will see it through to completion. In years of servicing my cars there they only botched repair job once (was faulty reconditioned part) and owned up to it no questions asked.
They tend to be very polite and friendly and service managers take time to explain repair jobs and answer your questions. Slow with any electronic communication, so call to talk to them. Their clientele are mostly b-boomers and it shows.
They also finally got loaner car going, but like with everything they charge extra for it.
Overall - you get what you pay for, and in case of YSG you pay a lot and get top-notch service.
