    Hi folks - my 2004 E55 is due for a service, and I am keen to avoid the franchise dealer pricing structure!

    Anyone recommend a good Indy with specialist mb/amg knowledge? I need a replacement wing mirror and the electric seat needs looking at. I'm after somewhere that genuinely knows the cars rather than someone with an interest.

    Any ideas? I live near Maidstone but happy to travel in Kent.

    Ask for Andy (the owner) many on here recommend Andy. Family run business. Honest, no hassle and looks after you and your car. He looks after all three of my Mercs including the AMG.

    Seconded.

    Andy looks after my E55K and does a cracking job. Knows his onions as well.

    Will take you around 30 minutes to get there - can be done in 15 minutes in an E55K...

    Great info folks, will call the place in Sidcup - I reckon I can get a train to work from there and pick it up afterwards.

    Thanks all

    He does have loan cars sometimes if not - you could arrange it inline with when one is available.

    I normally add it to my own policy.

    +1 for Steve in Maidstone. Went elsewhere once and regretted it!
