Arrow Mechanic in Austin, TX Area

Hi Forum Members,

I am looking for a mechanic who works on Mercedes engines (500 SEL) part time or on the side in the Austin, TX or San Antonio, TX area. I will also consider a mechanic who can coach me through engine repair. Any referrals would be appreciated.

I used to live in San Antonio and I went to a great mechanic. I found him in the phone book, and what stood out about him was that he was Mercedes Certified and stated so in his ad, which is what you want. I can't remember his name, but I believe it was Parra Automotive. Look for Parra Automotive in the phone book, if it's them their ad will state "Mercedes Certified", and call them and ask them if they have a Mechanic that is Mercedes Certified, if yes, that's him, as it's rare to find Merc Cert. mechanics outside of a Merc Dealership. Their automotive place is huge and looks like an airplane hangar filled with Mercs. He worked on my 500 SEL and did an excellent job at a fair price. I'm sorry I don't remember his name, as this was many years ago and I'm in another state now, so I hope I'm right about this. But if it isn't Parra, just look in the phone book under auto repair, then look for the MB section, and look for an ad that states Mercedes wasn't a big ad but it did state that on it. Good luck and let me know if you find him. =)

Import Auto on Gray Blvd. are awesome. My wife has a BMW, my sister a C320 and my business partner just started taking his E500 to them. They do quality work are friendly and knowledgeable and do it for a reasonable price.

This is where I will be taking my newly purchased R350. I have no problem with them telling me I need something, if they say so then it needs to be done.

Give them a shout, you won't be dissapointed. I'll bet my reptuation on it.

2nd just the first loser.
