Had the B service done on my SLK350 by my local Mercedes dealer on Monday, so here are some US dealer prices for comparison.
Mobil 1 Oil - 8 qts @ $9.35 ea = $74.80
Oil Filter - $17.60
Seal Ring - $2.09
Cabin Air Filter - $60.50
Brake Fluid - $18.70
Labor - $292.00*
Sales Tax (on parts) - $10.42
I'd mentioned that the HVAC blower made a constant "roar" when used, so while changing the cabin filter they vacuumed out the blower box and lubed the blower shaft at no additional charge, Purrs like a kitten now.
FWIW, Walmart price here for a 5 qt. jug of 0W-40 Mobil 1 is $25.47 and, here in Greenville, the sales tax on that would be $1.53.
* Labor charge was actually listed as $367, but then they applied a $75 "discount coupon". Based on their servicing of my GLK350 the amounts vary but there always seems to be one of these coupons.
