Avoid Mercedes only they are very expensive. They charged me $22 for a distribution rotor which sells for $5. Their labor charges are very high too. They claimed to have also soldered the wiring connector to the EHA connected to the fuel distributor. Not sure whether they did it or just charged me for it. After that my idle speed has been erratic and is rarely around 750. Car is also running rich. Too scared to go back as they may charge me big bucks for fixing that.
Another shop to avoid is D & G Automotive in Union City. They are even worse. They wanted $259 for a ignition coil(1984 190E) and 125 labor to detect no start problem and $135 labor to put in the ignition coil and Electronic Ignition control module. I got the coil for $69 from www.***************. Week later the car stopped again. The owner of D&G Automotive Dennis said that Raul had worked on my car. Towed it home and checked it myself with multimeter and found that tech did not tighten the - terminal on the ignition coil. It worked loose within a week. Tightened it and car runs fine now.
I moved from New Jersey and there is a good shop there - German Car Shop, Edison (732) 287-8959. Here is the Bay Area I am still looking for a honest mechanic.
