    Filled for life- refilled for longer life. I bet you're more concerned about longevity outside the warranty than MB are. RH

    diff oil change yes or no?

    Take a tip from someone who's recently done it on a Mondeo- the filler hole is too small for some of the big oil syringes; I had to shave the end of mine in order for it to fit. Check before you drain & you'll swear less than I did. RH

    diff oil change yes or no?

    Buy a new car or at least new parts. This is more likely when the old one is knackered through lack of oil changes in its life. RH

    diff oil change yes or no?

    Filled for life. Drained & refilled for longer life. Mine was changed at 100k & I feel a lot happier for it having seen the rancid crap that came out of the diff. RH

    getting quote from a garage, is it usual to be asked for VIN no.?

    If they really wanted to do that then there's nothing stopping them from reading it whilst they're working on the car. It's normal procedure for getting the right parts ordered- no worries. RH

    What's the point

    I'd put myself between three & four on the scale- a mixture of what's in my best interest & how a decent society is in my ultimate interest. I wouldn't go so far as to embrace total altruism. (ie a bit naughty sometimes rather than evil) RH
