Thumbs up PA, Kennet Square

I went to a Benz guru today. He is amazing.

His name is Fred Sinton and he works out of his Kennett Square shop (about 45mins from Philly). He is also a proud owner of a few of these 123 chassis vehicles. He is also an expert on vegetable oil kit installations, he's been installing them for the past 5 years. I highly recommend this guy to anyone with a Benz (or any foreign car really). He's VERY friendly & extremely knowledgeable on these machines. I drove two and a half hours today to see him about an electrical issue, took him about 10 minutes to diagnose & repair. It was well worth the drive.

Figured I'd let you all know about him. Give him a call he knows his stuff and LOVES working on these cars.

For those in the south/west of Philly area, there is a GREAT independent shop in Wilmington DE. The owner is Ezio, of Ezio's Car Care -

I've known Ezio for over 40 years, as he was the top mechanic at the Wilmington MB dealer in the '70's. Has had his own independent shop for over 30 years. He ONLY services MB, Ferrari and Rolls. His shop is dingy, and you would not take your car there unless you had a good reference! But, Ezio knows every model of MB, and provides great service. He DOES NOT just throw parts at the car, but will provide the owner with information about repair or replace options. Since I've known him for so long, he'll always provide me with suggestions on how to do my own repair/service if I want and ask.. He emigrated to the US from Italy in the '60's, when he was probably in his late 20's or 30's, so has a strong Italian accent.

VERY honest shop. This shop does ALL the service on my MB's that I don't know how to do, or don't choose to do.

'03 MB SL55 AMG
'90 MB 560 SEC
'07 Audi A8
'74 BMW 3.0 CSi
'94 Porsche 928 GTS - just departed
