Thomas: There is a independent shop that specializes in MB's in Rochester Hills. I don't know if you are in Detroit or in the suburbs but ask for Ron or Birshar. They do great work and their labor rate is only $62/hour. The shop name is Action 1 Auto. 248-652-7200. Don't be afraid of their temporary location, they are building a fabulous facility in downtown Rochester.
