There is a great repair shop near the Ashvelle airport called Eurospec. I have been using them for 6/7 years. They also have some used cars if your in the market.

Elff Automotive Service

I would trust the owner of Elff, Edson, to do surgery on my infant son....can I say more?
He has worked on my Jaguar's before, and most recently on my '72 280 SEL 4.5. Anything I can't/don't have time to do, I don't hesitate to take to Edson. They don't fix what doesn't need to be fixed, they are ultimately very, very honest, and they will handle your repair in a timely manner. Edson and his staff are very knowledgeable and, while they specialize in European imports, they can work on anything you want them to. Edson is formerly the captain for the Brazillian Formula One team.
Located on Coxe Avenue, downtown Asheville, NC

Eurospec is pretty good, i go for elff because of proximity and i would trust them to do anything right for a fair price- the stealership here is no bueno

I absolutely second that, it is amazing how uninformed these people are.

Gary's Automotive on Maple Ridge Road is great.

They are getting ready to move to a brand new location very soon on old hwy 19-23... If you know the area, it's at the far-end of the "Mile Straight" on the right.

With time, Gary and his son, Todd, have figured out what had been done totally wrong on my '84 190E, and have slowly and surely fixed everything to my satisfaction.

They get most of their parts thru the dealership, who until last year, had a very smart guy (Ivan) in the parts department.

I'd trust these guys before I'd go to the dealership.
