The guys at Bavarian Specialties are great. I am a UPS driver in KOP and used to deliver there all of the time. They do great suspension work if ya wanna go out racing. It neat to see all of the race ready bmws too.

I'm trying to set up a pre-purchase inspection of a W124 coupe and am wondering who I could see about this in Philadelphia. DOes anyone have any recommendations?

My best recommendation would be to contac Tom Haig (service director) at Keenan Mercedes in Doylestown, PA. They have been the most honest and not really much more than some of the local repair shops. If you want to try the repair shop route I would call DiNardo's. They are pretty good as well

I would go with the dealer. I would think they are likely to find more stuff especially if they think you will come there to have the work done.

Sorry to say this but we found DiNardo's to be just so-so. Did not fix problem with vehicle.
Impressive history, nice guys but did not fix problem even with return visit.

West Chester, PA

Westtown Imports in Westtown, PA is an excellent shop.
Service my AMG there and they have experience on ferrari, alfa romeo if that applies to anyone.
