Northern VA MB shop?

My 2001 ML430 is hitting 150K miles now with probably original spark plugs (i'm 2nd owner). I need a good and cheap mechanic to do the plugs/tune up. Any good suggestions?

P.S. I checked the belts with HBL and they said there were still good. Anything else I should be replacing or servicing at this stage?

Thanks very much!

If you don't mind driving it up to Frederick, Johnhef can do that for you. He's a great MB mechanic and a helluva nice guy.

In northern, Va there is guy named Peter who owns a shop in Vienna called Silver Star. He does nothing but Mercedes Benz and is very good with the older ones and his prices are main stream. Also, in Falls Church a guy named Don Pool has a shop on Lee Highway.

It was Chuck Taylor I was thinking of when I mistakenly said Don Poole. Chuck is also in Falls Church.

I was hestiant to mention John, too. He probably has his hands full just keeping up with Powerpig's fleet!

Not to mention poor dead Bruno sitting in his yard

But John is a great guy and an awesome mechanic...
