Exclamation Mercedes PPI in Seattle Area

Hi everyone,

I am thinking of purchasing a 07 SLK 350 manual used, but definitely need a pre purchase inspection(PPI) to feel secure before purchasing.

Just wondering if anyone on this forum in the PNW area knows a good place to get the car inspected? Or a service where the mechanic will travel to the car to check it?

I'll save the introductions for after I get the car

Thanks!

I've never been there, but the guys on 6speed recommend Mercedes Garage in Bellevue. Any dealership should be able to do this as well, but I have heard stories of them cutting corners on PPIs.

Thanks! Will get on the intro once I pull the trigger and buy the thing. Looks like a dealership or mercedes specialist is the best bet. As it is I have a friend in college studying car mechanics and he's going to check it out for me and then I'm taking it to the nearest dealership and getting the summer inspection.
