Looking for an Indie European shop (far western suburbs of Chicago)

I have a Mercedes GLE350 that is about to come off warranty. Anyone know of a good European shop in the Western suburbs? The nearby BMW Indie that I've used is strictly BMW.

Where exactly west? Burdi and M&M in Schiller Park are very good with Mercedes. Fertech on Addison.

Autobahn in St. Charles. Fluid in Naperville. European in Shaumburg. Vast area from Naperville to Schaumburg. Itís worth driving a little to a good shop. Where exactly are you located?

I'm right in the middle off of North Avenue (Carol Stream), so any of these could work.

Iím on Schmale Rd just north of North Ave. Fertech is closest. Small shop. Only two lift. But Fernando is very knowledgeable. They work on all exotics from the local dealers. Probably would be the cheapest too.

Oh, wow! You're very close by then. Nothing comes up in Google for Fertech. In which town are they located?

feuer Hi amigo.

I think it is time to do my brakes again on the E90.

What do you recommend?

If you are looking only for pads, get Akibono.
For rotors Zimmerman.
