    Hi All,

    My 2014 C63 (standard) is up for a service and to maintain the extended warranty (purchased by the previous owner) I need to get it serviced by a main dealer.

    Whilst I'm reasonably happy to do this, they tell me that in addition to the standard service at £339 it also need the air filter at £74 and gearbox oil/filter at £389 taking the total to £802 inc VAT.

    When questioned over the need for the gearbox oil/filter they took ages to establish the frequency of change and originally said every 4 years then every 3 - when I pointed out mine's not 4 years old.

    Can anyone confirm that it is 3 years or are they just trying to fleece me more than normal :doh:

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Gearbox oil flush is 3rd year and is one time only apparently.

    4th year is spark plugs and 2nd brake fluid change.

    Service plan is good value for 3&4 years as these are the most expensive.

    C63 (W204) and C240 (W202) - just not at the same time!
    I concur. Once at 3 years or 30k. Service plan for multiple B services is a value IMHO.

    £389 for an ATF change is a joke.
    No wonder MB want to do the servicing to keep the warranty:wallbash:

    Push them to do the TCU software update. I just had it done on a 2013 model. Makes quite a difference, much smoother upshifts in C, quicker in S+, no longer gets confused holding onto gears too long in C and the jerkiness in low speed stop start city driving is much improved.
