I have used Tony Purslow at Hindhead since purchasing my first Mercedes, they do provide a good service, car always comes back cleaned inside and out and the 6 year old thing is great.
Interesting to see what the service costs for my E class is though.

I too use Tony Purslow for servicing and I agree that they are very good in the main.

However, the 40% off labour rates is, from experience, quite misleading. They use MB set times to calculate the length of a job and these tend to be a fair bit longer than most good independents. It is also worth noting with 40% off you are still paying £67 plus VAT per hour, again somewhat higher than a good local independent.

As a result I have my servcing done by Tony Purslow to keep MB stamps in the book but any additional work goes to my friendly independent.

Hmm...interesting. Our 2004 E class is covered by MB used warranty/mobilo life etc. If we have the service done by a dealer and other work done by an indie, would that invalidate warranty or Mobilolife?

These prices still baffle me -you must all be retired bank managers?

No not really,in my case, I was just a simple service engineer who worked too long, Stumpy runs a fleet of executive hire cars
