Mechanic Recommendation/Key Duplication

Still in the process of relocating to Washington, DC, I have two items of concern:

First, would any have any recommendations for one or more reliable shops in this area? Specifically Laurel, Maryland, for the time being...otherwise central Maryland.

Next, anyone living in the area had any trouble getting your vehicle to pass inspection? I have a 1970 280SE that's in excellent shape - but I'm still curious if it will pass the emissions test here.

Finally, I need to make duplicates of this car's key but have been unable to locate anyone who can. It's a copy of the original key. COLE ME62 or MB15, which was made to "Fits Mercedes".

Thanks for your thoughts...

RC Imports is in MD.

As for the key, have you tried the dealership? You just provide them with the VIN and your state vehicle registration confirming the VIN and they'll have it laser cut for you. Takes about a week, $25.
