Any recommendations for Reno?

Just bought $1000 w116 300SD, want the car gone over professionally for bugs in the system - post purchase inspection.

Excellent independent specialists like small family owned business, decades of experience workin exclusively on MB's. These guys speak our language, straight shooters and excellent people.

Jumping in here late, I know, but I've always had very good experiences with Stuttgart Motors in Reno. They've generally been on the up-and-up with me and repairs nearly always end up costing less than I feared.

That said, Michel Bros. are straight-shooters, too. Haven't had any direct dealings with the dealership here in town, so I can't speak to their work.

I had Michel Bros. convert my 300D from automatic to manual. I thought the price was a tad high, but the work was done right and in a surprisingly timely manner. I would use them again.
