    Moving to Gloucestershire and interested to know of any good merc independents up there for servicing etc... I had a great one around me here and will be sad to move away!

    Nearby towns are Wotton-Under-Edge, Dursley, Yate, Gloucester.

    Thanks!

    Hello reuben - I live in Wotton-under-edge and can recommend Robin Lamb in Gloucester.

    Excellent service and reasonable prices.

    Very useful, thanks! Any idea of the hourly rates of these guys? My current Indy was £40 an hour which was very reasonable.

    The two guys with the spanners at MBB were previously the senior techs at Cheltenham and Worcester main dealers. As a long-standing customer I am happy to recommend them.

    I can highly recommend Paul and Steve at Three Points in Bristol. Both ex-MB and Steve was Head of Diagnostics at MB Bristol.

    They look after my SL.

    BG griffiths are good but not as good as Steve at Avantgarde - I would highly recommend travelling that bit further to see him. No affiliation just a very satisfied customer.

    Robin Lamb

    I,too,have used Rbin lamb over the years and always found the company to be professional and reliable.

    Perhaps not the cheapest but easy to find and safe parking etc

    I know Steve Olden at Three Points personally, he was my Aftersales Manager for a while before he stepped down to go back as a team leader in the workshop and he had the nick name "flash" for his speed at diagnosis of complicated faults. A great guy and a true gent too. You wont go wrong if you visit him.

    Hi Jon,

    It would help other members if you could visit our sister website http://www.mercedesspecialistfinder.co.uk/search/?postcode=GL1+5SQ&category=14 and click customer ratings for this garage, you will then be able to rate this garage 1 to 5 star (five being the best). Many thanks.
