MB Independent Mechanics in WA

Post by Tony From West Oz » Tue 12 Sep, 2017 7:03 pm

In another Thread a member asked for recommendations on MB Mechanics in Perth.
Here is what I was going to reply, before deciding on posting in a new thread (this one):

I have 2 I can recommend:
NOR - MB Star motors in Balcatta 9240 6633
SOR - MB Centre in Booragoon 6161 8561
Take your pick, both are excellent independent MB Specialists.
I have used them both at different times.

Other members please feel free to add your preferred mechanic in WA to this thread.

Am looking at a head gasket replacement as I have a rear oil leak with maybe a little coolant..... also a small leak from the timing cover...
Have been quoted from $3500 _ 4000. Does this sound expensive or excessive.

Seek quotes from the above-mentioned independents. They know the older (>5 years old) cars better than even the dealers.
