Looking for a good and trustworthy mechanic/shop in SoCal to service, repair and maintain my 6.9.
Preferably located between LA and San Diego.
They (he) must know their way around a 6.9 and especially the hydro suspension.
Any leads?
Thanks!

I could help you but I'm in Phoenix.

I'm sure there is someone in your area that knows these cars.

Thanks Chris. Appreciate your kind offer! It might be an option.
Do you have a Mercedes repair shop in Phoenix?

I would first like to see if there are any competent mechanic in SoCal.
You know, the old school guy, how has done any specific job a hundred times, and gives you that strong confidence only after being a few minutes in his shop!

And most importantly, he is not trying bull****ting you and rip you off.

Anyone heard of Steve Marx in Costa Mesa?
Is he good? Does he know the 6.9 well?

I know Steve Marx in Costa Mesa. Highly respectable. I know him from 190SL activities, however, not from any M-100 cars

Onager Mercedes just outside of San Diego. Bob Gunthrop is one of the most respected old Mercedes guys around. That is the only shop I would take my 6.9 to....my W113 as well.

Thanks for the input. Appreciated.
So Bob Gunthrop knows specifically the 6.9 very well?
Does he in fact work on the cars himself or is he the manager?
Any idea about their shop rates etc?
