    there is really no way to answer this question accurately. you need to get a second opinion; suggest asking other MB owners who the "good guys" are locally.
    there are mechanics; then there are technicians. you want the shop that has a parking lot full of Mercedes and not Chevys, Dodges and Nissans.

    engine began overheating - i am getting an s-class 8 cyl engine dropped in my e-420 which will give me more power and hopefully better gas mileage also. thanks for your advise!
