Best mechanic for this situation is from a reputable indie shop, that still works on this era of german cars. He or she will have seen it all. Next best is an indie shop that works on foreign cars. Next is a VW or Audi dealership tech.
Even worse for finding a competent technician is for a German car of the 70s or 80s. I've got an '86 560SL Mercedes roadster, which has an obsolete (non-electronic) fuel injection system that usually works well, but is a mystery to most current mechanics. Some people on the R107 roadster website have taken their cars to the Mercedes-Benz dealership, only to be told "we don't service cars that old". The B5s are still comparatively modern in many respects.
