Chuck The Mechanic is easily accessed from
the southbound frontage road 49th and I35. He's got the 1st building on the right.
A blue and white steel building....Alternate route You can head East past MBoA on Airport. Take a left at 49th (not 49 1/2 St) it is past the old Black Stallion restaurant on Airport.

I drive by Mercedes of Austin quite a bit and used to pop in for parts. Once I got used to looking up part numbers online I found out MBoA is charging way over MSRP for parts, while parts.com and other online outfits charge way under MSRP for factory parts. Having a shop which allows you to bring in parts can be a huge money saver. Charging over MSRP for carry out parts is ridiculous.

Doing your own brakes, oil, fuel is pretty easy but you do need a weird set of pliers for the fuel filter clamps.
