If I am right, drive on Hennur road towards the ORR. 0.5 km before the ORR on the left you will see a lot of german cars being repaired

Pavan kadam

if i am not wrong you do your cars near RMV clusters right.

before me trying are they reliable and do they finish the work that they start is my big concern. Generally by trend these guys have set ,they start one work open things and run away to another. And how safe is the place if in case i have to leave the vehicle overnight.

Cheers

Pradeep

Wow bsa

Thats one of the most immaculate W123 Mercs I've seen in recent times. The interiors are spotless for a car of this vintage. Nice colour too. Was it restored earlier or has it been that way originally? Thanks for sharing the pictures . The charm of the old Mercedes cars is something else.
