After having the transmission serviced and picking up the vehicle, I noticed a vibration that was not there before bringing in the vehicle. After returning to the shop, and waiting for a short period of time, the vibration problem was resolved.

The repair shop did explain the necessary repair work and what they would recommend beforehand and then satisfactorily completed the work.

I just acquired this car in Monterey and had driven it home to Palm Springs. The Porsche dealer was not helpful but this shop took care of my car and even dropped me home.

Terrific place, the serviceman was quite exceptional in every way. Think it may be a little too pricey for me, we will see next time. Excellent experience EXCEPT for the labor charge....$40 for labor to put in a low beam headlight and a bulb for license tag seem EXCESSIVE. Just moved here so I will 'shop around' and compare this recent service to other shops...If I were rich this would be the place I would go, but as they say I 'ain't'!!

Sean was very friendly and listened to everything I had to say...also came to my car and I was able to tell him what I was experiencing. He exceeded my expectations and my car was ready earlier than I expected.

Message From the Shop
The automobiles we specialize in are among the most sophisticated computer controlled cars on the planet. International Motors (IM) has all of the necessary factory tools and diagnostic computers to communicate with these complex systems to properly and accurately discover the problems. We invest tens-of-thousands of dollars a year in equipment, software and training to provide the information you expect from a dealer with personal service you likely won't get. Owned and operated by Sean Zarrinkouh, a Bosch Master Technician (BSCS), with a staff of ASE/Bosch Master Certified Technicians who love what they do. This passion, supported by continual training means that everything that can be done will be done as quickly, correctly and as reasonably as possible. For people who own older model cars that the dealers seem to not be interested in or even trained to deal with, IM is like water in the desert. BMW Audi Mercedes Benz Mini Jaguar Land Rover.

Questions Answered by International Motors
Can You Recommend A Repair Shop Near 92240 That Will Properly Diagnose And Repai on 2004 Mercedes-Benz E320
Hi There
If SBC is the problem and has to be replaced, then the repair facility needs to use Mercedes Tester to finish the job.
Other than the Mercedes dealer, International Motors in Cathedral City has the proper factory equipment to finish the job.

How To Reset Tire Psi Warning Light All Tires Good On Psi. Is There A Reset Button? on 2009 Toyota Corolla
It can only be rest by TPMS tool through the sixteen pin diagnostic connector.
Rear Disc Brakes on 2006 BMW 325i
You would need to reset and service function using BMW factory tester such as GT1 or Autologic to 100% after the repair.

Poor A/C on 1994 Mercedes-Benz E320
For an accurate answer I would need to know the hi and low pressure of the a/c system. It seems that you have low refregerant in the system.
