E320 Brakes

I have recently purchased a 1998 E320 with 92K miles. This is my first MB. Could you please suggest any reliable local mechanic who can replace its front and back brakes in Wahisngton DC, VA, MD or DE areas. How much it would cost.

Thanks in advance.

For brakes, you don't need dealer. Any [regular] shop will do. If you are handy, you can even perform it yourself.

RE: E320 Brakes

if the calipers have two pins going through them pop them out and remove the retaining springs and pull the pads out and put new ones in. good luck

RE: E320 Brakes

I just purchased a 1999 E320 two weeks ago and I'll be taking it to Proctor Mercedes http://www.proctorsauto.com/Dealer_info.html
to get my brake and rotors job done. Also I called MB of Alexandria and they quoted me approx $700. for the front brake pads and rotors. Check out Proctor Mercedes autor repair shop because a co-worker of mine has had several repairs done and he's pretty happy of their work. HAPPY BENZING!

Try Fairfax Service Center: Route 29 and Prosperity Road, Merrifield, VA (703) 560-1700. Good work, no BS: ("by the way, while it's on the rack you should have this done").
