I got this idea from Miked619 topic of a good mechanic.

Who do you trust to work on your car and why?
Don't forget to say what city.

I have not taken my 320 in yet, so I have no expeience with MB.

My wife took her BMW to Eurospec (Phillips Hwy) in Jacksonville Florida. She went to pick up her car and found out it was not there. They had sent it out without telling her it would be leaving their shop. After this was settled and over, we found out the check she wrote for the work was not cashed, but submitted to the bank as a direct withdrawl, allowing the shop to withdraw money from our account in the future on the shops' say so alone. The shop argued she had signe for this but could not produce anything wiht her signature. We straightend this out with the bank, which said the paperwork submitted by the shop showed signature on file.

Now we overwatch every thing reguarding her car work.

I trust a company called TRIDENT, based in Uxbridge, UK.
Its an independent workshop, but they specialise in MB, all the guys are MB trained and qualified, infact one of them is a consulant for MB. They actually investigate any problems, not just replace the obvious part. They always keep me informed of whats going on, they describe exactly what the problem was and how to fix it. They are very honest and have never ripped me off. In fact, they don't charge me enough for what they do. Nice friendly team and I would recommend them for sure. In fact, sometimes I just pay a social visit there and talk about Mercs !!

I go to my dealer Shumacher Mercedes. If not that I use to take my truck to Kelly Klark Auto repair. They are slow but dont rip me off and did good work. Once there work failed and they towed me no cost and repaired it free and filled my gas tank.

I live in phoenix Arizona

I'm looking for a reliable independent shop in the West Los Angeles area.

My recent experiences with the famous dealer in the Valley and the one in 90210 were far from optimum.

Here's my SLK:
