Best bet is to look at the Owners Manual (available online through various places -- try a Google search) and check out the maintenance schedule.
In the interval you defined, you'll definitely want a tranny fluid change, fuel filter, three oil changes, cabin air filter, engine air filters, one or two sets of tires, 1-2 brake fluid changes, a set of spark plugs, and maybe brake pads/rotors. That's all routine stuff.
In higher mileage Mercedes it also seems fairly common to need engine mounts around 70K miles, which is about $500-800 depending on who does it.
Grab this - is a good starting point, and if you figure $200 for A service and $400 for B service, you are probably in the ball park.
5 years triggers a few non-mileage related items (plugs, transmission fluid, etc), but you are at the 50k point, so in theory the transmission service should have already been done. If not, dealer price seems to be about $399, with Indy service about half of that.
At 50,000 miles the trans should have been done at 40,000, if not that need to be done ASAP cost around 400. Brake fluid every two years around 125. Oil and fliter every year or 10,000 miles which come first around 125. These are normal service items. There is a list of other items that are replaced based on miles that would depend on how much you use it like cabin filter or wear like tires.
All of the above mentioned maintenance my 07 slk350 I spent $1,700.00 @ 40k miles. These are: B service plus AT fluid and filter, new pads and rotors(front only) brake fluid exchange. fuel filter, cabin filter and a free car wash and loaner car. All of this done by MB
If there is a good Indy garage you know get some estimate and compare prices. Also make sure your set of tires are still good because a new set can add up $800 TO $900.
