Re: High prices Itís not just Renault

If you ever fancy taking a 'walk on the wild side' try a mercedes main dealer.

They can charge like the Light Brigade.

Try £500 for a Service C, or £750 for a Service D...

(I was left swearing using words beginning with the same letters, amongst others).

This was in the e320 days (when we felt compelled to have a FMBSH to preserve resale value.

Nowadays, since it makes no difference, our most recent service (a 'B') cost £165 from my local, trusted independent. It was only that price because the engine takes 8 litres of oil .


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
