Done before, but not for a while. Techs please read...

Thanks Guys!!

It's been a little while since we expressed our gratitude for all the professional MB mechanics on this board that take time to give us all a hand. I'm sure the last thing some of them feel like doing during their breaks or at home is dealing with a bunch of non-paying customers.

It's guys like Gilly, Steve, Doc and so on that have made MB-Shop such a success for us DIY and barely-DIY MB enthusiasts.

Not only has your guidance helped me with doing much more on my own car, it's given me powerful knowledge for those dealer visits that are sometimes necessary.

Thanks again guys, and even though it's not said as often as it could be, we really do appreciate all your help.

A real strong second to that motion! This has to be the best spot on the 'net, both for practical information, for technical car conversation, for general discussion, and for a source of inexpensive parts! I can't imagine owning an MB without the support of this site. Thanks to the site owners for providing this space and their expertise, all the generous and knowledgable contributing techs, and all the gifted DIY members who help keep my car running in perfect condition/appearance. I can't count the times that the techs on this site have helped me avoid a load of BS from a dealership.

Yes, Thanks guys.

It is because of this site that I have enough knowledge and courage to take on basket cases and make reliable driver's of them. Your shared knowledge is very, very valuable and we don't say thank you enough.

I can't say anything that hasn't been said well enough already.

I concur with everyone's statements, especially Johns big


Keep up the great work you guys do, without techs like you, our cars would be in trouble.
