Looking for reliable service for MB in Naperville IL

Hi all-
I'm new to this forum. Which by the way is a great source for information.

I just bought a 1984 MB 380SL this past fall. I have been wanting this vehicle for about a decade now, and I finally have one. I barely driven it since winter came shortly after. So I have been pondering where I can find a great mechanic near me in Naperville Il.

I'm scared to take to dealer as they may not be full versed in this older model or may try to rip me off. I've always like indies much better. The car has ~83000 miles on it. I like to buy rear shockes and have them installed, as the front are fine. The rears are currently KYB's, and seem to soft or may be leaking a little. Also like someone to look over vehicle and give me recommendations on future things to keep an eye on.

I know there has to be many Mercedes owners in or about Naperville IL. Has anyone had any experiences with Becker Service or Maximum Automotive or Mercedes-Benz of Naperville, good or bad. Trustworthy?

Check out the dealer rating website: http://www.dealerrater.com/

There might be some other very good independent mechanics in your area. Ask around work or ask other Mercedes drivers that you meet in parking lots, etc. You can learn a lot that way. Good luck!
