Thanks to this great recommendation, I drove 30 minutes to see Sam today and was thoroughly impressed by his professionalism and attention to detail.

I own a 2003 high mileage CLK, it's critical for me to have a tech that I can trust. From my conversations with Sam and the way I saw him personally taking care of my car, I can say this is the guy!... I've tried several shops over the past 3 years and none have provided the kind of service and insight that gave me the confidence and trust to say, this is the guy!
Sam was under the car, under the hood and in the trunk, he showed me everything and then prioritized the repairs, so they can be scheduled as needed. He uses MB parts, which he gets wholesale "I trust that MB used the best parts, why should I change that" he said. If you're anywhere in S. Florida he's worth the drive.

Called Sam from Boca-Star and he wants $625 to install two motor mounts on my 2003 E500.
Ouch!

Yes, the $625 included two motor mounts. I asked Sam if he would install OEM Lemforder mounts supplied by me and he said no. His feathers got ruffled when I questioned him about the price being too high - said it was his shop and he could charge whatever he wanted. Must be using gold plated tools or putting his kids through college at an Ivy League school. Needless to say, Sam will never be working on my car.

Not a good attitude at all. Fortunately I have a great mechanic who did the mount swap on my car with the Lemforders I supplied, with a reasonable price.

I got the transmission mount changed also at the same time.
