Mercedes Services

To all Mercedes owners!

I have 05 C230, bought it used, and just recently i got this msg saying "service B"
I called mercedes services, and they quoted me, "~600$" for service B. Is it usually this much?

Just wondering, where do you guys take to get services done?
Any good shops around Vancouver that you might recommend?

TIA.

I drive a 05 S55 AMG and I do ALL of my service and modifications at The Speed Syndicate.

Contact Alex @ TheSpeedSyndicate 604-568-7795

Amazing service and honestly both Alex & Curtis are super familiar with Mercedes. The shop holds the current record of the fastest CLS55 AMG in the 1/4 mile. Hopefully some time in the future my car will be up there as well!

I'd give them a call, I wouldn't go anywhere else!

No I do not own a shop....I just own a toolbox and a few very expensive lessons from MB richmond.....

If you wish to use a shop, as mentioned above, TheSpeedSyndicate is the shop that I visit often aswell for jobs that I cannot complete on my own. Alex and Curtis are very well knowledgable with MBs.

I was quoted $250 + air filters' costs at an nweuropean.com‎ about a block away from the Mercedes dealership in Bellingham. Filters are pretty cheap online.

Just heard from our techs that we purchased the reseting tools needed for the benz servicing!

You dont have to get the servicing done through us, but you will need to reset all the service lights.
