    Hi all,

    As you know our sister website www.mercedesspecialistfinder.co.uk, helps owners to find a specialist, either in their area or nationally.

    We need your help...

    We update the site as often as we know or hear about any changes, but you might know of a new garage opened up or one that has gone away...

    All this information helps us to keep the site updated which acts to support Mercedes owners such as yourselves.

    Please submit any updates in this thread.

    Many thanks

    One local to me, that doesn't seem to appear on the list, is Avonside Motors, Evesham.

    http://www.avonsidemotors.co.uk/technical-help/

    They purport to be a Merc specialist, and also a specialist for many other makes. Perhaps too many.:cool:

    I've not used them, except for an A/C re-gas, which didn't last that long.:( But such may be a fault with the vehicle rather than the 'service provider'.

    A phone call could establish as to whether they have STAR equipment and staff trained as to its use.;)

    Did a B3 service on my S204 last January and will be servicing her again very soon including thermostat change. Impressed with their knowledge and service.

    MB Tech in Warrington have been excellent and sorted a number of problems left over from or not sorted by other general garages. I feel the specialist knowledge is worth any additional hourly rate over my local garage.

    Good to hear. Have a few little issues with both of mine and am sick of paying main dealer prices.
    Went into Mercedes Ashford and told then I needed a new map sensor and asked how much it was and even showed them the codes, and the woman I spoke to said they would have to read the codes on their machine before doing the work.

    Or basically adding another £100 to the cost!

    Will try them out, and they're close to my office as well.

    Well I took my car to MasterTech and they were spot on. Would thoroughly recommend them, and will be taking the ML there to sort a few niggles out.

    They did the A service and thermostat change on my S204 in January and were again spot on. Car now runs at 80+C and gets to temperature (and working heater) much quicker than before. Next time in I'll have them do the ATF/filter change Ben recommends at +/-100k miles.

    Hi Mark. Up here in West Lancashire we have a Mercedes Specialist/Independent that started life as an apprentice as a MB Commercial Diesel Fitter with two of the largest MB Dealerships in the North West and then moved over to passenger cars and eventually to start a business in his own right.
    He trades as TCRM Motors in Tarleton,Nr Preston -
    Unit D/Driery Lane/Off Blackgate Lane, Preston PR4 6UU
    Phone: 01772 816122

    It is within easy reach of Burscough,Rufford,Southport,Preston and very close to the junction of the A565 and the A59.

    Very surprised I haven’t as they appear to have decently trained techies

    Not sure I like their lifts too much when you look at their FB photos but maybe these are the norm these days?

    Hi Mark and all. A few weeks ago I posted with this :-----

    I spelled the name of the lane incorrectly and had it as Driery Lane - it is Briery Lane.

    It is within easy reach of Burscough,Rufford,Southport,Preston and very close to the junction of the A565 and the A59.
