Paul's Mercedes Werkstatt

939 Terra Bella Ave
Mountain View, CA

My parents have been taking their Mercedes to him for years and I worked as a mechanic's apprentice for him in high school. He's an honest guy and does a lot of transmission work. Great shop. Highly recommended.

They seem to have great review on as well, see:
Sal's Autohaus - San Francisco, CA

Haven't tried them yet though, but I'm thinking about it...

They rebuilt my 190E's transmission and our 300SE's as well. You could try Topline in Burlingame, but they are very pricey.

There is one rule...there are no rules!

For all the classic owners out there (190SLs, fintails, W113s, 300SLs, W108s, R107s, W109s, 600 Limos...) I propose Burlingame Motors. Their shop rate is $128 an hour, about average for the area, and they do exceptional work, from what I have seen. They know these antique Mercedes VERY well.

They are open from 8am to 5pm, and here's their contact info:

Burlingame Motors
1295 Rollins Road
Burlingame, CA 94010
(650) 343-8858

Rene is great to deal with. I work at this shop, so, in order to provide a non-biased opinion, feel free to comment on it, whether your experience has been positive or negative.

Yes, Burlingame Motors!

I just had a very good experience with Burlingame Motors. My '89 560SL had several repair/upgrade needs. Rene did an outstanding job, diagnosing all of the problems and proposing reasonably priced solutions. My car drives much better now - and, I feel like I was treated fairly and professionally. I have to say - the cars in Rene's shop are amazing - 190's, 280's, 300's . . . and, he treated my run-of-the-mill 560 as if it were a true classic. I'm definitely going back!
