Good plan! However I’m probably going to extend the 1 year warranty so I perceive a benefit in keeping all the servicing MB until the extended warranty expires.I explored the option of taking out a service plan on my E63 which is no longer under warranty. The next service is a B service with an ATF change included. The service plan will cost £52 a month over 3 years to get the benefit of a B.A.B service.
So that is £1872 for 3 services or £624 a year for 3 years.
Now if I were to get these 3 services done at an indy, the first B service I would guess would be well under £600 including that ATF change. The next one is just an oil/filter and check up and supplying the oil would come in under £200. The last B service would require another set of spark plugs and brake fluid but I still think £600 would cover it easily.
So I'm already £400+ down and the Mobilo cover can be replaced through the RAC anyway for little cost.
So I'm leaning toward my indy doing the work when the time comes and saving some money.
I’ll clearly have time to do my sums before I buy the service plan though, but that’s my current thinking.
