    I've just dropped off my W163 at a (non MB) garage and I thought it might make a fun contest to invite people to guess the final bill.

    The car is:

    2005 W163 ML350, 38000 miles, 1 owner

    The work is:

    1. MOT
    2. Service (2 spanners)
    3. Fit Eibach lowering spring kit (I have supplied the kit)
    4. Fit chrome side bars (I have supplied the bars)

    The price is: - well, that's your job. Guesses invited with trepidation……. :eek:

    Good question.

    When I get the final bill, I'll post it - itemised. Not sure when car will be ready - so please be patient.

    Some good guesses on here - and many of them cheaper than I would have thought………...
