Cupertino Mercedes Service is a very good place. Diesel friendly plus they service MB only and do NOT sell used cars. ******** is a used car lot, and services many euro makes.

Did you perform a very careful valve adjustment before performing the compression test? There is more variance than I would expect.

Dittos. It really (I mean REALLY) bugs me when I see a nice car, particularly a nice older one, parked in the sun with the dash unprotected. Sheesh. At least toss a beach towel on there, people.

I'll second Vinylex. I use it and think it is great stuff. Not to discount 303, as I have always heard good testimonials about it, but I have no personal experience.
