I am going to try MB of Barrington as suggested by Kirill for my next service and will post my experience here.
Don't forget to grab a slice of chocolate cake - this stuff is yummy !!! Usually they have it between service advisors area and rental department.

I think Tom is SA for couple SLRs in the area.

RE: Need help in rating Chicago Suburb Dealers

Years ago back in 98 I was at a Shelby Club event at Road America in WI racing my Cobra. I met a great guy named Chris Schwingle. He was an MB SM at Barrington. He helped me and my pop with a couple of nagging W124 issues.
I have not talked to him since 2000, but at that time they ran a tight ship.
If Chris is there still say hi to him from Rob, the guy in the paddock with the Cobra next to his car.
He will know what you are talking about. I ran very well that day and posted the third fastest time in the race class.

can always check www.dealerrater.com for some reviews. I've only dealt with the service area for Fletcher Jones in downtown. Not the greatest but better than Perillo BMW I think (it takes 2-3 weeks just to get into Perillo usually).
YES! Please rate your local dealers after every transaction on the Dealer Rating site:

http://www.dealerrater.com

Help build up a useful dealer rating database that is universally available, not limited to this site, good as it is, and make it a powerful incentive for your local dealers to behave the way YOU want them to. In YOUR own best interest, not just theirs. Even the odds, rate the dealers and then make sure that they know they are being rated after every money transaction. I'm not affiliated in any way, just interested in training my own dealer to act in MY best interest!

Whats more here to discuss? Motorwerks is the best. Of cause you can go somewhere else and cry how they mistreated you. There was a recent thread how MB of Arlington Heights damaged somebody's car.

I've had a very good experience with Loeber Motors. DO NOT GO TO Autohaus on Edens. Worst service I've ever gotten. They're a bunch of a$$holes.

I USE EURO CARE IN OAK FOREST, IL. CHRIS KNOWS HIS STUFF AND IS LESS EXPENSIVE THAN ANYONE I HAVE GOTTEN QUOTES FROM.
I HAVE BEEN TO MB OF WESTMONT IF THAT IS THE ONE NEAR DOWNERS GROVE. THEY SEEMED TO BE VERY SNOBBY. I FELT LIKE THEY DIDNT THINK I SHOULD OWN A BENZ, LET ALONE AN SL500, SEEING AS I AM BLACK! LOL

MB of Naperville is top notch. I really like the serve dept. and the guy in parts named Jesus always goes out of his way to be nice to my 9yo daughter. Good people even though it's owned by a large corporation. Sure wish there were mom and pop stores again.

RE: Need help in rating Chicago Suburb Dealers

I live in Naperville IL, but I am leary on going to MB of Naperville due to cost. They quoted me over $400.00 for a pair of rear shocks for my 1984 380SL. That's not counting the additional $360.00 for installing them. So I'm in the pursuit of finding a quality independant in the Naperville area. Any suggustions?

RE: Need help in rating Chicago Suburb Dealers

If you guys are looking for a very good sales consultant look up Dwayne Bent. He works at the Naperville location, not sure the name of the dealership it self. He will make sure everything you ask for or want, you will get. He is very good at helping people. He has his masters in Mechanical Engineering and is a top notch person. Very loyal and trustworthy. He's not doing it for the money, he's doing it because he loves cares and loves helping people. Trust me guys, you will not be dissapointed.
