Service time!

Got a quote for a service B by an Independent Merc Specialist

*Brake fluid change
*Combo filters
*Spark plugs
*Cam/Rocker oil seepage fix

Apparently my transmission oil was done in 09 so thats being left out. Also getting free wiper blades and new battery in key fob chucked in
All in Ł600..............Very happy with the price and the big bonus is, its only down th road.

Mine is currently at around 45k and is a 2006 car. According to the MB national database, my car has not had the plugs done yet.

Should I get the plugs done or not?

Relative to the plugs I have read that the timing trigger is related to the problem caused by the plug seizing up in the hole and not being able to be removed. If you like the price I'd pull the trigger - you have 16 of them don't you

I bought spark plugs from Amazon and dealer installed them at about $350 labor. About $215 for 16 spark plugs totaling $565 including labor.

Dealer wanted to charge me $33 per spark plug!!!!!!
