Question about Maybach OEM parts
It is regrettable that the first post I make to this forum is a question.
I took my boss' 2005 62 to a designated Maybach service center because whenever I was maneuvering the steering of the car heavily when I was parking it, the ignition will turn off by itself and I would have to restart the engine. It would happen when another car was waiting for the huge obstacle of a car would clear out of the narrow path of a parking lot.
The car was diagnosed with an oil leak in the shock-absorbing cylinder within the power steering system. The quote for parts and labor came out to be $8,500. I guess it is only natural since it is a Maybach. Still, I wanted to do some research and find out if I can get the parts for a better price.
I have been researching online, but I have not come across anything.
If anyone in the forum knows a trustworthy OEM parts vendor, please help me out.
Thank you very much.
