    Hi folks

    I have my w204 c63 Amg booked in for a B service ( including activated charcoal filter ) plus brake fluid, air filters and lsd oil at Mb Guildford under there platinum plus rates next week -

    https://www.sandown-group.co.uk/off...programme/5559/mercedes-benz/offerdetail.aspx

    I will be supplying all my own genuine Mb parts which cost me approx £150 for 10l of oil, oil filter, two litres of brake fluid, two air filters, two litres of lsd oil and the activated charcoal filter.

    Labour at Guildford is £273 plus my £150 for parts = £423, Mb Dartford and Bromley quoted in excess of £800 for the same service.

    Wright Tech at Sidcup quoted £275 labour only so it just goes to show servicing at a main dealer can be good value with a little legwork.

    Cheers

    Ps I am The Don from the other side.

    Do check that it still keeps mobilo intact etc. Some dealers offer cheaper servicing but it forgoes Mobilo extension on the older vehicles.

    The difference in prices would buy a lot of AA/RAC/Green Flag/other recovery :rolleyes:

    It’s only the value service that excludes mobilo, every A or B service renews mobilo for the next twelve months for every car up to thirty years of age, one of my 1999 c43 Amgs still has mobilo cover.

    I agree!

    (10 years down the line when it needs rot repair may be another story though)

    I doubt enough hoops will have been jumped through for the majority of 10+yr old for Mercedes ;)

    Wow, proof of life after death!
    What's it like? Are you allowed petrol cars or is it wings only? Do real enthusiasts do detailing on their wings?
