Any recommendations for a good mechanic on the Westside (Culver City, Santa Monica, Venice, Palms, Marina del Rey, etc.)?

At the risk of being in the wrong place that was a scary video, thanks.
As for the 126 chassis, I was a foreman when it came out as well as the 107 and most everything following. I retired just under 2 years ago and was an instructor/ team leader at that time so my grasp of technical issues still outreaches most. I now own and operate a small hot rod shop and build my own cars from the ground up including everything from the frame and suspension to the complete drive train. I do have them painted however. I actually started a 1927 Ford turtle back today. Thanks again.

I take my car to German Motor Car Service in Santa Monica. They work on Mercedes cars only, classic Gullwings to newer ones like mine. They use the same diagnostic tools the dealers use ( Star Diagnostic Computer). Owners name is Herbert.

Herbert has done some work on my 88 560 SEC. I can definitely recommend him. Not necessarily the least expensive guy in town but you get what you pay for and I work on the west side so its convenient for me.

I have also heard good things about George at G+N Motors on Santa Monica Blvd in Westwood (but thankfully I haven't yet needed his services)

If you are looking for a mechanic in Los Angeles, Tony, the owner of Europa Motors in Santa Monica, is absolutely the best mechanic I have ever worked with. Even if you aren't on the west side, go to Tony. He is the nicest guy and will NOT rip you off. He has been working on MBs since 1979 and really knows his stuff. I lived on the east side and took my car to him for years--if I hadn't moved 1000 miles away, he would still have my business!

We're moving to Palos Verdes on the 1st of the year. Any referrals for a shop for my C55? Thanks!

I used Malibu Motors on 14th and Colorado for my 240D for years. I always liked them and they did good work. Any others have feedback on them?

G&N Motors on Santa Monica Blvd. near Century City. Absolutely the best. George the owner and Chris, his top mechanic, really know their Benzes and you will not find a more honest and fair group of guys. Highly recommended.
