    Before I bought my car, it resided in Tampa for a long time with service done at the local MB dealer, Lokey Motors. I talked to one of the techs there, maybe the foreman, Jay Stusio, and he was familiar with the car and 500Es in general. I haven't used them for service but you might want to check them out.

    Although Herndon Automotive is a good ways away in Jacksonville John Herndon is a very experienced and honest owner operator. He has at least 30+ yrs. experience. I highly recommend him.

    Melville and Sheward, thanks so much for you thoughts and advice. Yes, Sheward, I was hoping for something a bit closer just because my logistics are a bit of a mess (pretty much living on an airplane), though it's good to know about John. Who knows, I may be able to use him.

    German Cars of Sarasota — 941.955.1972

    They’ve taken care of mine for about 20 years — 2 prior owners who were real car guys. So if it wasn’t running optimally, it was complained of and fixed. So they’ve probably seen everything on these, as well as other 60’s to present MBs. It’s not Tampa, but they are honest and excellent. Ask for Rex, tell him I sent you. If you mention this Board, he’ll know it’s me.
