Need brake rotors replaced in Houston,TX

Hi,
I've just moved to Houston and need a good shop to replace the front rotors on my 92 300E. I usually do this kind of work myself but I can't get them off the hubs.
I have 2 Brembo rotors and brake pads already, I just need someone that has the equipment to do the job for me using my parts.
Thanks,
Colin

I'm covering all my bases putting it in the tech help section too. I've edited it appropriately.

I let Silvio's Autohouse on Bagby @ Tuam (address is 401 Tuam [pronounced "Too Am"]) downtown do all the wrenching on my '92 300SE that I can't do myself.

However, they're a fussy bunch about owner-provided parts. Call in advance and talk to Silvio or Ralf if Silvio is not available.

They work on an appointment basis unless your car is dead on the road, and it may take several days to get in line.

What part of town?

Up here to the north (Spring/Woodlands) I can vouch for Eurotechs on I45 @ FM2920. They'll install your parts without complaint.

Billy and Mark (owner/operators) do the wrenching and learned Benzes through the dealerships here in town about the time your year would have been seen a lot under warranty.

281-651-9460 - tell 'em Manning sent you

Regards,
Kevin
