Caster is way low, it need to be set to spec.

If this guy is not familiar with Benz, Volvo, or BMW, he may not be aware that the caster need to be that high.

I'm not sure, but the difference in caster may account for the pull.

Some shops will also "stagger" the caster to counteract the crown on the road.

I'd find another shop that routinely does MBs and have it done there.

The toe-out sounds high to me too, but I don't know the specs off the top of my head.
