And, as I lived in San Francisco till not too long ago, I would most definately avoid going to Mercedes Benz of San Francisco (the dealer there), they are not good, or from what I have heard, Walnut Creek dealer. Even the Independent Mercedes dealers are pretty much a gamble, in San Francisco, and doubly so with the new cars. I never really found a good independent there from 1996-2004 that was reasonably priced and good, though Sal's Autohaus on San Jose Ave. was alright, but I think they only like to work on the older cars.
I'd try RAB Motors up in San Rafael, if I had to go to a dealer. "JoshuaJeeper" a member here, is a service writer for them, and one of his bosses, David Santy is a good guy, who used to be a service guy.
They are really nice looking cars, and absolutely beautiful to drive and ride in when when they are running right. but owning one is a gamble, the W211 cars are pretty dodgy as regards reliability and dependability.
