    Phoned the MB main dealer in Ayr and asked for a quote for an A service ( using my oil. 9.5 lts ) including brake fluid change. The price to include an MOT and a loan car.
    £242.51 I do not think that is bad at all.

    No, doesn't sound bad at all.

    Is that fixed or will they hit + a few times on their calculator once they've finished?

    That is a decent price from a main dealer

    Knowing a main dealer it's £242 per wheel....so make sure the spare isn't in.

    No seems a good price for a car like yours.

    Whats included on an A service though?

    Probably more a visual 'look'

    So you providing oil and paying £40 say for the MOT what is the £200 for...the oil change?


    Fair enough it 'sounds' ok if it stays at that but when you think what your getting for the money its not really a deal?

    There is not a lot of work in an 'A' service, true, and there are a lot of visual inspections. These are worth it to me for my peace of mind. The price also includes a brake fluid change, and a loan car for the day. This service also extends the Mobilo break down service for a further 12 months. I have used this service and its 1st class.
    So, break down cover for 12 months. Break fluid changed. Loan car for a day. MOT. Oil change using my oil, and a plethora of visual checks including the ABC. In this day and age I still think the price is a fair one.

    I guess come the bigger ones you will have to decide if its worth it or independent time?

    Will that extend the mobilo for 12 months? do you get a car for the day? Does that include an MOT?. does it include a brake fluid change.?

    Not saying its the bargain of a life time, but the price is very good from a main dealer.

    Less than £165? Maybe on an engine which requires only 5 litres of oil that is 229.5 spec.
    Developer215's car takes nearly 9 litres!!!!!!!

    It's a different car at a different place WTW.

    I was just saying I'm having an A service too, as it's an A service thread and mine is tomorrow.

    I think the next one will be at an Indies. A plug change alone (24) would cost an arm and a leg. And as stated above £165 for a service is very good.

    Have just returned from the dealers after having an MOT and an 'A' service. I was quoted a total of £241 plus change. This was for the service ( my oil ) MOT and a loan car ( new E 250 )
    Imagine my surprise when I saw the final total was-

    £218 and change. :):)

    Consider kwik fit when that one is due, full service inc plugs but priced by engine capacity not number of cylinders/plugs.
