...i just talked to the guy that does the work on my cars that i am not able to do. i can do a lot of general maintainence and repairs but when i know im over my head i take my car to ted. i called him and asked him his opinion on the mount and if he had one in stock i could buy. he said if its made in germany i need not worry about the quality. while i was on the phone and online with him a quick google search turned up a bilstien mount for 22 dollars. this was surprising to him and HE asked ME where im getting my parts from and if i had a tax/resale number. i found that humorous and i asked, 'are you computer literate'....
he said yeah im on the computer right now so i told him to just pose any question to google and he would be surprised not buy the parts available but the technical knowledge available. he asked why are people giving away this info for free and i couldnt help but gafaw a bit so i went on to explain we love these cars, we're a cult, a community. felt a little bad for him cause he puts bread on the table fixing these cars but hey hes not going to run out of drs and lawyers with mercedes benz cars to work on. we talked a bit about kent bergsma who he is familiar with.
if anybody is in the seattle tacoma area with a mercedes benz that needs a certified mercedes guy who cares about the quality of his work Friedels in renton is where you can go with complete trust in the quality of the repairs. every car that goes in that shop is cared for the same as it would be if it was their own personal car.
ted is a an awesome guy, he reminds me of our member grovert, he lives and breathes mercedes benz. id be his shop boy for free just to learn what he could teach me. check out their customer reviews, its a real pleasure knowing great people like the people at Friedels.
