The shop (John is the owner) have kept my 1988 300e running for 10 years and 200K miles. Not the cheapest but better than a dealer and the quality of work is excellent. Now sensitive to the fact that at 325K the beast no longer has much of a future, John keeps repair costs to a minimum to nurse it through it's remaining time.

I SPENT A LONG TIME LOOKING FOR A SHOP THAT WORKED ON OLD MBS (1988 560SEC) AS I PLAN TO DRIVE MY CAR FOR ALONG TIME TO COME. AS IT IS A SMALL SHOP, THEY WERE ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF THE NEEDED REPAIRS QUICKLY AND COMPETENTLY. THEY (JOHN-OWNER & TRUONG-MECHANIC) SUGGESTED COMBINING REPAIRS TO LESSEN THE COST AND TO WAIT AND SEE IF ONE REPAIR TOOK CARE OF A POSSIBLY RELATED REPAIR RATHER THAN MAKING AN UNNECESSARY REPAIR. I TOTALLY APPRECIATED THAT THEY ASKED ABOUT MY TIMING CHAIN AS THE DEALERSHIP AND 2 OTHER SHOPS NEVER MENTIONED IT OR THE REPAIR BULLETIN THAT HAD BEEN PUT OUT ON A POTENTIAL CALAMITY IF IT SHOULD BREAK. AFTER 2 TRIPS TO THEIR SHOP I AM VERY HAPPY THAT I GAVE THEM A TRY.
