    It's service time for my w204 C350 CDI and I refuse to pay £880 to MB for a B1 service, can anyone recommend an independant specialist who has the ability to update the DSB in the process?

    I drive 45 mins to Olly at PCS and have done since Olly started his business with my various Mercs across the years... or Huxleys in Fleet...

    I am surprised at the £880 quote.

    B1 is simply a B Service plus Brake Fluid change (it also includes pollen filter change but that is part of the B Service so not charged separately).

    Main dealer cost for B Service plud Brake Fluid shouldn't be more that £650-£700 in total.

    Were there any other items mentioned in the dealer's quote? E.g. Air Filter or Fuel Filter etc?

    Feel free to contact us and I can less than halve that for you for a B1 service!

    Thanks for the recommendations :)
