Vic, the owner and mechanic, was a MB factory tech, and has been in business 30 years. It just doesn't get any better than him. The prices are incredibly fair, good workmanship, and very friendly.

This guy is telling the truth about Lorenzen. i wanted to get on here to get his name out there but i see that someone beat me to it. I just had service done to my car by him. I found him by searching the internet for mercedes shops.

When i got there, pre-buy inspection was going to cost me $80. Now i'm a helicopter mechanic so i am thorough when it comes to maintenance. He noticed every little thing about the car (good and bad). he used calipers to measure each rotor, tools to measure the freezing point of the cooland and even used a torque wrench to put my wheels back on (thats my biggest pet-peave.) His tools are modern and complete. And even after 28 years of doing this, He still uses the mercedes manual (WIS) to do the inspection and make sure he's not missing anything.

When he was done, He only charged me $60 cause he said it didn't take him as long as he thought it would. This guy is honest and really enjoys and, takes pride in his work.

Long story short, He's knowledgable, honest, by the book, and his prices are reasonable.

Take your car to this guy!!!
Heres his info...

Question Any repair facilties actually IN DAYTONA besides the Stealership?

Is there anyone LOCALLY IN Daytona as a good Indy? Say, for stuff you can't drive to Jacksonville/St. Augustine for? I live in Jax, and Lorenzen is on my list of places to go to!

However, right now, my car is in Daytona and would like some ABC Service done on my R230 SL500 before i drive back to Jax. Thanks Guys and Gals!

2003 SL500 "AMG SPORT" Brilliant Silver Met.
OPTIONS: SL1, SL2, SL3, 051, 889
MODS: 2009 AMG E63 rims, 2012-Style Arrow LED mirror covers
(with LED ground, courtesy light wired to the dome light), tint,
LED projector city lights, clear lenses, Amber-chrome blinker bulbs,

Stay on top of your ABC Maintenance! It is NOT in A or B Flex Service's!
Change FLUID AND FILTER at least every 40,000 miles!

Vic, who owns BAC. He located on Beach street, between mason ave and main st/fairview.
About halfway between the two. He is very honest, will do what you request, uses oem dealer parts or yours parts, whatever you want to do. Kind of man who stands by his work, gives you all info and options that he can think of, addresses your options and helps you make the decision. I know cause that's how he has treated me, he works on all cars but he really know Mercedes.

I can't stress this enough, the Daytona Dealership is awful and borderline or just on the legal side of criminal. Like not wanting to repair emission under 80k warranty, could hear a horrible loud rattle/whine from catalytic conv but refused to repair because the emission gases checked, Sanford dealer laughed and replace under warranty. Or, how when the satellite radio was defective, their experienced tech and service advisor said entire control unit needed replacing $1500+, didn't even share that sat radio is an add-on unit to the main control unit, I found a mecedes satelite unit only online $150, replaced unit under rear floorboard and boom, all is well and satellite radio and control unit are perfect. Either incompetent or criminal, You tell me, Daytona "Fields" dealership, or Vic's BAC? I would only go to dealership if under warranty,and not the Daytona one, drive to Sanford 35 miles away.

I think it's important to know the details, I like them when I'm doing this kind of research.
