Autohaus might be ok for older model repairs, but in 3 visits, I was just having parts thrown at the fuel system problem that I had. I also saw the staff in my car doing a traction control disabled hard start (after stopping in the middle of the highway) outside crabtree valley mall/taking the car on joyrides. I'm thinking that half of the videos you see like that on youtube are probably not the owner of these cars.
Leith Mercedes on Capitol not only fixed the problem in just a few hours for a fraction of the cost, but they also washed and waxed the car. Autohaus simply didn't have the correct diagnostic equipment (scoped optics in my case) to literally see that the problem was at the other end of the hose that they worked on.
I think that if you car is even near new, or a relatively prized possession, then there's no need to avoid the dealer.
