I would like to know this guy also. My 91 500 is runnning fine but I have a91 300e that I would like to get going and needs a bit of work. I get a little paranoid when stuff starts going sideways especially if it is with the 500SL. Ijsut want to have a good mechanic that doesn't demand my first born every spring.

Diesel Mechanic for Old Benz

John at Continental knows old Benzes specially Diesel, Phil sure likes to order parts....question them before OK'ing work.

Calgary is the worst place for Service on Imports...you dont get kissed first.

Good Luck

Yes indeed, you do have to be real cautious with your wallet in Calgary, or you will get bent over the new tire display everytime!! Why, we're all big oil & gas execs don't ya know. $2000 shop visit no big deal in cowtown, usually with all the attitude to boot...

I have used 2 Square Auto a couple of times, seemed to be reasonable compared to the dealer, and they have started offering 3 year warranties on the parts they install. I have a number of Items Lonestar has told me need replacing, in tune of 6800... dealer price. For the same work 2 Square was approx 1200 cheaper, and they are using Dealer Parts... Im not a big fan of Aftermarket Parts... So that was an issue for me..
