Dealerships are American Service Center in Ballston and HBL in Tysons. ASC has a great parts department, but for a 1990 model I would use an indepdent, mercedes-specialist mechanic. There are several really good ones in Northern Virginia. I personally use Don Pool Mercedes Benz and think they're fantastic. They're in Arlington by the EFC metro. 703-534-4222.

I concur with Michael's suggestion regards seeing an independent mechanic for that car. I have had very good experiences with Reese Sherbaf at Fairfax Service Center on Prosperity Avenue in Fairfax.

His shop does good work for a fair price and he'll probably be far more informative about the work he'll do than the folks at either ASC or HBL.

I went to his (Carlos) shop last week, just went there to check the location of his shop and meet the guy himself.

It is a decent shop, Carlos seems to be a nice guy. We had a little chat and left. Don't want to take most of his time and bother him... His working on a bmw then.

Saw 3 60's SL in very good shape one is imported straight from germany.

Good guy, nice place. I'll bring my car back one day and try his services.

... just sharing my thoughts w you guys
