I was just about to put my E500 back on a service care plan as I paid cash for the cheap A service last year. The next two are going to be the pricey ones - spark plugs, gearbox oil etc ...

The plan was £42/month for two years but Mercedes are currently offering a 20% discount if you quote code SC20, see here: - Service Plan Discount Code.

Reduces it to £33.60 per month for me.

I think this was just announced today as T & C states "Applicable to all ServiceCare plans purchased in full online between 01.07.20 – 30.09.20"

So basically 20% discount on prepaid plans only. Wow.

I guess it depends where you are in the service schedule.

Mine is due two expensive services - one in July and one in July 2021 - the plans works out very good value even If I pay upfront. I need to keep it dealer serviced as I've just renewed the extended warranty @ £495 for the year.

I still don’t see the benefit for you. Lets say you are taking 2y plan which is £806.40 at quoted £33.6. Will those two expensive services be covered with such plan?

Yes, have you priced up spark plugs and gearbox fluid/filter change at a main dealer?

£403.20 for a B service including spark plugs at a main dealer is really cheap :)

The following A service for the same price if it includes the ATF replacement is a bargain also :thumb:

Just tried it for my vehicle, it doesn’t like the ‘SC20’ code for some reason?

I think it’s because you can’t select the annual payment/pay up front on the menu? Still let’s you select a pay up front plan if you proceed to pay, but won’t allow the code to enter as it doesn’t see it selected before that?

I have been trying to claim the offer as well - apparently MB are having 'technical issues' with allowing the discount but once they get it working participating dealers will launch a promo campaign and you deal direct with them to take out the plan/get the discount.

20% discount is a fair price for lending the MB behemoth some £££ to help them manage their cash flow..

It won’t recognise any of my registration numbers. Then when I manually select the model it says the code can’t be accepted

I don’t think the registration numbers will be the only problem - it’s recognising mine fine and comes up with the correct model and the amounts are all correct, but there is no way of selecting the amount of services/years you want the plan for if you want to pay upfront. So it won’t accept the code as you either click on nothing (as there’s no annual/upfront plan to click) or select a monthly one (for which the code doesn’t work!)

I’ll give it a few days and then ring them if it’s still not working, but the offer stipulates it’s for up front payments and has to be done online etc :doh:

Will is it failing to recognise your registration numbers too? I can’t even find the GT on the manual list. Shame as I was about to go for it on a few cars.

I just took out one out for the Smart a few weeks ago. My usual dealer can’t do Smart and so little chance of a discount, they quoted £300 for the second service 😳

I want to keep it in the dealer network but I have to say £300 will put most people off. It’s supposed to be a small affordable city car, albeit expensive for a small affordable city car! 😁

It’s recognising my registration fine, comes up with the correct model, shows the pricing (£52/month or £624 PA) but it doesn’t allow you to select an option for upfront payment on the pricing table (just has the various 2/3/4 services paid monthly over 1/2/3/4 years.

7230145D-E264-4AA4-B2CF-6548E3970E28.jpeg

If you click on one of the monthly options on the table for some reason you can proceed to the upfront payment part underneath (eg £1872 for three services) but then you can’t apply the voucher code :doh:

I’m in no rush but would probably use it to cover the next three on mine (B, A, B) - needs plugs next year and brake fluid etc so with the promotion it seems decent enough value. 20% off helps :)

Crazy price for the Smart! :eek:
