I don't think I've met a nicer, more genuine technician/mechanic or business owner than Nick. As a first time Mercedes owner (of not 1, but 2) I am absolutely relieved to have found Mercedes Service of Silicon Valley. Nick has spent hours at this point, out of sheer courtesy, advising me about two preowned E-class Mercedes' that I brought him for pre-inspection. He exudes passion for what he does and he incredibly knowledgeable. I had researched the hell out of these cars for months leading up to when I brought them to Nick, and he was able to speak to everything I'd read about, potential issues, what to look out for, etc. all on the fly. He's a consummate professional, and I have no doubt he could tell you anything you'd want to know about any year and model Benz (and probably any other European car).
I haven't spent a dollar at Mercedes Service of Silicon Valley (yet), but I can already tell you they've earned my business. Having a great mechanic is like having a great attorney, you don't realize what you have until sh*t hits the fan-belt =) Easiest five star review I've written. These guys earned it.
