Never heard of them but if you find they are good let me know. Where are they in Rehoboth? How did you hear of them? I'd be willing to give them a shot. There aren't alot of places around here. Do they work sprecifically on foreign?

I'm asking you and your probably saying dude I don't know that's why i'm asking. It would be good to find a nice shop local. There's a place in Warwick where some people I know go. They say it's like going to the dealer where they check your car out give you a report on things but don't charge dealer prices. I'll find out the name and post it.

I stopped by and was pretty impressed by what I saw. They deal exclusively with foreign cars....lots of older Benzes in the parking lot (usually a good sign). They're at 73 Fall River Ave. (Rte. 6).

The main place I go is RDM in Tiverton. Thus far, I've been very pleased. And I think labor rate's 60, which is very reasonable. But it's a bit of a haul from Barrington.

Where do you take yours?...I noticed you live in Rehoboth.

And I'd be glad to get some details on the place in Warwick.

Ive been to that place in warwick as well. I was impressed with the knowledge of the guy. Can't remember the name, but its just north of TF green on the right.

Another good place in east providence- Engines By Benz

Another guy who knows his stuff, and is as least friendly and loves mercedes. I think two main mechanics, one works on MB, the other on VW.
