Hi Guys, just had my service -A- done by the dealer at 5700 miles. I paid $210.00 Dollars, Is this price ok?
Have a question, How can i post my car pictures on this site?
All my car pictures are in a file called (Shortcut to my pictures) on my computer's desktop. Thanks for your help.
P.S. Since interest rates are lower now, is there a way to refinance my current lease or go ahead and finance it again. ? my lease interest rate is 8% now. I like to bring my lease payment down to half if i can.:hail:

You'll need to register with a photo hosting website like

http://photobucket.com

It's free to do this. You can then upload your photos into albums on the site.
When you have some photos uploaded, you can copy the IMG properties into a thread and hey presto, your pictures will appear..

Cheers!

I had to find out A service is not A service and not only do prices vary also the service...depending where.

If I were you, I would ask the dealer to give you a "detailed" list of what exactly is being done,before even doing the A service.

Example...A service list " tire rotation " most slks can't have the tire rotaded because tires have different sizeson the front and back.

Also some place exachange and put brand new windhield vipers on your car when doing the A service, some places don't.

Some places even change your oil but only clean your airfilter, some MB dealer actually put a brand new airfilter....

My dealer in Toledo,Ohio....
only does this for the A service, which cost around 240 bucks.

Oil Change, Inspection, air filter cleaning...and filling up fluids...thats it!

the one MB in Michigan,they told me on the phone.

They do oil change, airfilter change, new windshield wipers, Inspection,filling up all fluids and lubrication.'

for 260 bucks...

I had oil change, air filter cleaned, fluids filled up & lubrication. I also told them not
to wash my car becouse i heard they use a broom to wash cars. How do dealers wash the cars anyway? thank you for
your reply.

I definitely don't trust my dealer to wash it, seen one of the younger boys dropping the chamois on the ground and using it on the paint straight after... :(

You should try attempting the install yourself is quite easy and this is coming from a person that has never attempted such a thing before :tu:

though I admit i was extremely scared while doing it though :)

Thanks RayhaX for your post, but I am not handy with tools and I am scared I might
brake something. I saw the post on how to do it and it dos'nt look that easy. If
the cost is around $200.00 I rather have A pro. do it.

Fair enough :) I was going to get someone to do it as well but i received it on Friday and the earliest that could happen was on Monday.

Being a very impatient person I decided to attempt the install myself on Saturday :) thank god nothing happen haha
