I am down on Anna Maria Island and have a 2005 SLK 350 with major A/C problems, You recommend Paul does he specialize in Mercs etc as I will probably need to get at the evaporator and maybe replace the compressor, you donít want to know what Mercedes quoted!

I would reccomend them or also MB or Sarasota has proven itself.

I would also suggest these people as well. Horst's Bavarian Auto Works, Inc. - Service and Repair for Fine European Autos They are located in North Venice, Florida. I have used them one time for A/C repair and upkeep on my SL. They take in some high end and I mean high end cars! Bugatti EB110 for example.

Tanztec Sarasota, I was quoted $7,500 to fix the SLK. Mike fixed the condenser water leak without stripping out the dash as Mercedes Sarasota wanted to do. He changed out all of the fluids, brakes, transmission, coolant, with genuine Merc stuff, changed the gas filter which is a tank out job, air, a/c, oil filters and it came to around $1,200. He has been servicing my S class and as a retired engineer I can thoroughly recommend him. Not only that his shop does not look like a junk yard, its just clean tidy and professional. Two years after Mercedes Sarasota told me the a/c compressor and evaporator on the SLK needed changing, Mike replaced just the compressor and dryer saying the evaporator was not necessary.

Richard learned his trade as a apprentice from a mechanic from Germany who would put him through a stringent apprenticeship program in Louiiana.years ago. He's a good guy knows his stuff.
