Reliable. Specializes in Jaguar and Rolls Royce but works on a variety of cars including Japanese. Saw somebody's 70's Ferrari in there one time. You'll need an appointment.

My wife often drops my car (95 E320) or hers (95 Talon Tsi) by them and they've always treated her right -- sometimes a garage with take advantage of a woman more readily than a man. No turn signal fluid sold there.

I have heard good things about them. There is (was) (it's been a while) a pretty decent shop specializing in MBs in downtown Lake Charles.

If Lafayette does not pan out Wedge Keyes in Baton Rouge has treated me good over the years.

Small community (about 100K) with lots of millionaire Cajuns who made money in oil & gas and support industries. At one time the town had the highest per capita millionaires in the USA. Then we had this oil collapse thingie and they went from Rolls to Prius.

Got a large BMW & M-B dealer here, too. The owner bought a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren just for giggles. I think she drove it once or twice. Now it's just sitting there in the showroom gathering saliva.

I just signed a lease with a man who is moving to Lafayette Indiana from Lafayette LA. I am waiting to see how screwed up his mail will be!

Well this all seems to be working out great. My mom talked with Richard at the shop. Turns out she works only a short distance away so he will give her a ride to work and take the car back and do the work. i appreciate all the leads on other shops also. She works in many different areas so I will have her put a "good shops" file together.

Short distance, long time.

We just got those red light camera thingies which ought to generate huge revenues -- there are too many maniacs who think red is a suggestion. I know they're an infringement, etc, but damn, if we can only keep them running for a year or so to get people to freaking pay attention. Get off that dang cellphone, people!

I think everybody in Lafayette drives two cars simultaneously, in opposite directions, to get to the same place. Einstein would be impressed.
