    Advertising costs.

    How much does it cost these days to advertise, and for what duration, on Autotrader for private and business individuals? You can't seem to see prices unless you sign in. Reason I ask is that I can see some adverts for E55s have been around for a long time and it must cost a fortune?

    Tyre fitting costs

    Looking at fitting costs for 2 or 4 18" tyres on alloys from Anything from £13 to £20 a wheel, which has surprised me. Urban myth that it was £10 a tyre , perhaps rounding up to £50 for 4 don't seem to hold up. To be fair spending £400 on tyres and then skimping on £20 and not...

    Service Costs and Packages

    I'm due to take delivery on a new E-Class within 5 weeks. I understand MB offer a £30/month service "deal". Seems a bit steep to be paying £1040 for first 3 years service during warranty period. BMW and VW appear much cheaper. Do you know if service costs can be negotiated? Thank.
