    I'm a member of the Civil Service Motoring Associate (CSMA) and they partner with the NSN. As a member I get a discount on both service and M.O.T - which is pretty competitive.

    My CLK is due an M.O.T soon and I wouldn't mind combining that with a full service for about £230.

    To be honest, and assuming they don't find any other faults - I think that is a good price, I used to pay more for my little renault Clio!!!

    Does anyone use NSN....should I smell a dirty big rat???

    Also, someone told me that to keep my Mercedes history log in check...i should get a main dealer to change the oil filter or something...stamp my book - and it keeps my mobilo thing alive.

    Is there a touch of the Arthur Daley about that advice??

    As always...thanks in advance for thoughts and advice.

    I'd never heard of them either...until CSMA.

    Hmm...their "full service" is about the same as the Mercedes one, ie, oil and filter change and some checks.

    There's other stuff needed on a Merc depending on time and distance covered since those items were last replaced.

    The snag with this sort of deal is, as I understand it, you don't know where the car is going to be serviced. If it's at your excellant local garage then you might as well take it there yourself. What would fill me full of horror was the thought that it might be "serviced" by a fast-fit kind of place.

    Oh, and these days you generally can't just get an oil and filter change at an MB dealer - they won't stamp the service book unless any additional work is also carried out.

    You can check what's required here, and reference the car's service book to see when items were last replaced: http://lite.servicemercedes.co.uk/pc/pc_start.asp

    I'm a CSMA member too - great for insurance, but I'll pass on their servicing offer.

    Its only the Service extras they will insist you have carried out before stamping the history, e.g. plugs, air & fuel filter etc.
    If whilst servicing your car they find things wrong these don,t have to be carried out to get the stamp.
    What sort of mileage has your CLK covered? is it due an "A" or "B" service?
    Depending on the age and mileage your car has covered, it might be worth while seeking a good MB specialist.
    This site should help you decide what service extras your car is going to need.
