RE: Tell me some info about Mercedes Mechanics, salary info
I have a friend who is a mechanic at a MB dealership, and let me tell you, he makes a big fat paycheck. He has a home in a nice suburb, nice enough, above average.... but hidden in the back of his property is a huge shop, must be 4000 square feet, with televisions built into the wall, massive roll-up doors, all concrete floors, car lifts like at a car shop, the whole nine yards, and the building is FULL of Mercedes: old classics, oval track MB race cars, cosworth models, just TONS of stuff, all nice; it's just amazing. I said, "Hey, you can do some work on my car in here in your spare time once in a while?" His answer was, "Oh, probably not, this shop is mainly just for my hobbies". The guy makes about 150-200K a year, my guess. It's an educated guess because my other friend Steve is a Porsche mechanic for over 30 years, factory trained in Stuttgart, and he says that is a good estimate. MUST BE NICE!!
Please don't spill Champagne in the Mercedes.
