Newbie: mechanic in Charlottesville, VA?

Hi y'all, any recommendations for MB mechanics in or around Charlottesville, VA? I'm getting an '82 300TD, has idling trouble. I ask people around here, but mostly I've been hearing where *not* to take the car! Which is useful, too, but still... Thanks, Jack

I grew up in Charlottesville, but now live in West Virginia. A friend of mine owns The Foreign Auto Center which is off of Preston avenue on your way to the Downtown mall. There are more precise directions there. They have all the computers to do the services on newer MBs, but they usually have at least one 80s diesel Benz at any given time that they are working on. The owner actually has a W126 300SD himself. My car (also a W126 300SD) has been serviced there as long as it has been in the family with work including AC conversion, Transmission rebuild, glow plugs, motor mounts, and an assortment of other odds and ends that occur with the older models. Hope that helps!
