    Had my car checked yesterday and seems last service wasn't done properly.
    Anyways car booked for tuesday and we will do:
    - engine oil + filter
    - fuel filter
    - air filters
    - gear box oil
    -rear brake discs and pads
    - 3 faulty glow plugs with the relay
    Car should be spot on after.
    Just cannot believe some times, service history says fuel filter done and looks like wasn't touched for years :-0
    All parts 600 quid some from dealership
    Cannot wait for my new baby to get a first treat from me :)

    unfortunately this is not unusual, indeed, imho, it is commonplace

    c200 sports coupe
    Service at main deal RIP OFF!

    Help to you all, this is my first post on here so please bare with me. I had my 57 plate(pre clc) c200 CDI sprt coupe serviced at the main dealer in Bishops Stortford, it went in for a "B" service, I was told I should have the engine flushed as well. Anyway £640.00 later/lighter I picked up the car. All they had done was "check" the car and change the oil etc. what Adria off! To add insult to injury they put the car through a car wash(something I will never do, manual only) and broke off the pure DAB external aerial, which I now have to replace and invoice them. Also if the women had have smiled her face would have cracked. I came away feeling patronised with coments like "our tech guys are not used to stamping service books as all our customers drive modern versions". I love my merc and want to look after it. I will not go back there as I have found an independent merc garage in Harlow who collected my car and did an auto transmission service, what a difference, well recommended. Thanks for the info on here. A really great site!Neilmong
