    Hi All

    Just bought a lovely C300h AMG Line (Premium Plus) and would love any suggestions on

    * What to do next
    * What to check
    * Recommended servicing places
    * Any after-market add on's that will help
    * Anything you think I should know with being a first time owner and especially in connection with this vehicle.

    Many thanks

    Tim

    Welcome to the forum Tim.
    Stay with your dealer for servicing until the warranty runs out, then think about finding a reliable indy to save yourself some money. What ius your location so maybe someone can recommend a good MB tech.

    I can't offer much advice on your car as I'm unfamiliar with the model and the Bluetec system.

    Hi.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Car is 3 year old so I’m assuming it’s out of manufactures warranty etc?

    Advice on a excellent independent company would be a massive help. I’m between Nottingham and Derby.

    Thanks again

    If you don't use the car it's less likely to go wrong :D

    Welcome Tim
    Check service history to make sure it’s MB
    If it is and you intend keeping the car a while then consider M.B. Tier 1 but MAKE SURE YOUR HYBRID SYSTEM IS COVERED
    I say this in good faith as the Hybrid stuff in the is enormously expensive to fix when it goes wrong, and sadly they can be prone to doing so
