    I have a B Service due on my C Class Coupe 250 AMG Line Premium Plus (2016) and the main dealers in Portsmouth and Chichester want well over £500 to do it.
    Can anyone recommend a good garage around the Portsmouth, Waterlooville, Horndean, Petersfield, Chichester and surrounding areas who I can trust to do a good job?

    Thank you.

    MBS Southampton - they’re forum supporters and I travel from West Yorkshire for them to service my SLK

    Another vote for MBS - have used them personally. PCS are very well regarded but haven’t used them.

    And another for MBS. I travel from Northamptonshire to get Cole to service my SL.

    Think you'll find that Cole at MBS is pretty close as well - haven't used either myself, but both have excellent reputations - and Cole happened to notice the missing locking wheel bolt on my S204 when he and MissyD visited some years ago to collect a radio I was selling! Just wish either or both were closer to me for getting now my 2 MB's serviced!

    I'm aware of AMF, but it's still about 3/4 hour drive, so ATM I'm tempted to try Arrow Maintenance, the servicing end of Arrow Taxis Ashford who run and maintain their own fleet of E220Cdi's - as MTA a mile away are no longer my flavour of the month!

    We have people that come from West London, Essex and further. It all depends on what you want I suppose. As its just servicing, its pretty basic, just make sure they are using the right spec fluids, updating DSB, doing the right things at the correct interval, as usual
