    Don't bother with any of these. Best is ACMS Mercedes in Walsall. Google them, speak with Marc if you can and tell him Graham recommended him. Ex main dealer, vastly knowledgeable and a nice chap. Gets very busy though

    Just called and spoke to Mark. Very pleasant guy, quite knowledgeable too even as far as the Km odo on a UK car whereas other guys have just been left scratching their heads.
    Awaiting a call back with a quote.

    Good. My cars only go to Marc and he always does a good job at a reasonable price. I'm very fussy but I do trust him.

    don't use dey merc. they are con and damage your car.
    they have repaired my car for injector leak. charge me more than what I have agreed with him.
    In the end. I have to bring to mercedes central birmingham to repair it again.
    It's a con and they damage your car. You end up to paying more.
    Be warn about dey mercedes.

    I used Andy Gayle for my first service when I bought the car 5 years ago. Knowledgeable and helpful. Gave the car a good once over and pointed out what needed doing and what will need doing in the future. No pressure selling even on the 'urgent' stuff (I viewed the faults myself).

    In Birmingham you have Acid who is very well respected and will sort you out. There is also Jay at Mercland Nuneaton who is not too far away
