Yeah, Mercedes charges exorbitant fees for

any work they perform on their cars and I believe they literally HATE to see me coming. I might go to them for a factory part – in this case factory oil filters- and it takes them about an hour to “find the part” to sell it to me. I buy 3 at a time. I don’t like the feel and form of the after market filter… At first they felt the need to send the service manager to have a meeting with me, desperate attempts ensued imploring me to think of all the money I invested in a classic automobile, why take the chance of ruining such a fine machine. Thing is, buddy was young enough to be my child…and well I’d been changing oil in cars since he was just a good time in his father’s mind…so the conversation didn’t go over well. Now they just make me wait.
