Trustworthy place for Pre-Purchase Inspection near Chicago?

What are some places I can trust to do a PPI in the Chicagoland area?

I would like a place to check every single thing about the car very thoroughly. Can a Mercedes Dealer scan the computer for any codes that may have come up in last year? Not sure how that works? One of my biggest fear is really electrical issues, I have owned a car in the past which had electrical issues and was a huge pain, something I want to avoid this time as well as any other potential problems with the car.

I am looking at buying a used r171 slk 350, I found a couple at used car dealers and from private sellers. Also any specific problems to look for with this model?

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Avoid the 2006 due to a potential soft balance shaft sprocket problem.
For 2007 you want the engine # checked. By 2008 the problem had been solved in production.
