I have never written a review in my life-good or bad. This isn't really a review, but more of a word to the wise. I'm only sharing my experience. You can do with it what you will. I had my 2004 c240 towed here with transmission problems (wasn't shifting). Like you, I did my research beforehand, and decided this was a reputable place, based on reviews I read online. I took a half day off work ($150), and paid wrecker $125 to tow my car there. They called me three days later and advised me that my tranny was beyond repair, and the only fix was to rebuild it at the cost of 5k-6k. They also advised that they don't install used parts so my only option with them was to rebuild. (Charged me $350 to tell me this btw) Considering the car isn't worth much more than that, I took another half day off (another $150) and paid wrecker another tow bill to have my car taken to a different German auto shop within a mile of this place, that would install a used transmission. Based on what Bavarian diagnosed I had the other shop pre-order a used transmission to have ready to replace bad one-which they did. They called me back the same day and advised me that the tranny wasn't bad at all, it only had bad conductor plate, which they replaced, did an oil change and tune up for 1k. Now after one day, my car is running and shifting as well as it ever did. They didn't charge me a penny for having them order and ship the used transmission that wasn't needed or used. They will get any automotive work I need done, from now on-foreign or domestic. A good, honest mechanic is extremely hard to find. I'm not saying don't use Bavarian, I'm only suggesting that if they quote you an expensive repair, that a trip, less than a mile down the road, for a second opinion, very well may save you quite a chunk of money. It sure did me.
