Got the fuel filter and sparkplugs changed on my 04 C230K estate at Parkham Garage in Wellingborough. Over £100 cheaper than the dealer quote. Good service and they even gave it a wash! I shall be back when I need a service.
Dropped car off early morning - can't remember the guys name, but very pleasant and explained fully what the service entailed. I gave him a short list with a couple of concerns that I had and said he would investigate.
Courtesy car not quite what I expected (was mean't to be an A Class) - actually turned out to be his own 92 BMW 525 with M steering wheel and gear knob!!! Not quite, but fun to drive all the same! Especially as it had over 330k on the clock!
Got a phone call on the way home - wheel bearings ok but front bushes were shot - couldnt change them that day but would quote and then I could decide - at least that explained the awful vibration through the steering wheel! A well known problem apparently.....
Eventually picked car up at about 4pm - all done including brake fluid and fuel filter change. Oil used was 229.5 spec Mobil 1 - next service now due in 13k. Full run down of what was done on the service also given to go with the stamps in the service book.
Excellent service - garage was small yet clean and very busy. Lots of MB taxi's - always a good sign in my mind.
Would happily recommend - very happy. Saved about £200 on a stealer and car was even washed!
