Question What's The Cost Of A Service For CLS(500/550/55AMG)

THX ^_^

I wanna buy a used CLS 500 550 or 55AMG. 63AMG is too expensive for me.
I assume the MPG(in Canada we use L/100KM) is about the same for these three models. About 15MPG in city?
But I think the different is the cost of service.
The big question is the cost of service of these three models.

And I lived in Montreal, can it run on snow? What problem will I get?

Service "D" was tranny flush/filter, Brake flush, Oil change, Cabin filter and wiper blades. Along with a complete inspection. The service gets more expensive, the more that needs to be done. So yes, serive "A" would be less and it goes up from there.

Service Codes

The Service Code letters indicate the number of hours the service is estimated to take. This is described in the Maintenance Section of the Owners Manual. The Service Codes do not indicate which Maintenance Services are required. So the higher the letter code the more hours it will take and therefore the more it will cost. The Service Codes are as follows:
Service A: 1 Hour
Service B: 2 Hours
Service C: 3 Hours
Service D: 4 Hours
Service E: 5 Hours
Service F: 6 Hours
Service G: 7 Hours
Service H: 8 Hours
A "+" next to a Service Code (i.e. D+) indicates need for brake service (inspection)

Some of the Maintenance Services are:
Service 1 (13,000 miles and then every 26,000 miles or 2 years): Various inpsections
Service 2 (every 26,000 miles or 2 years): Various inspections
Service 3 (every 13,000 miles or 1 year): Oil and filter change
Service 4 (every 2 years): Body and chassis inspections and replace brake fluid
Service 5 (every 26,000 miles or 2 years): Replace combination (cabin) filter

Most dealers offer a package price for 'A' Service and 'B' Service. In their jargon, the 'A' Service package consists of Services 1 and 3 (inspections and oil change) as described in the Maintenance Booklet and is intended for scheduled normal services to be performed at 13,000 miles or one year and every 26,000 miles or two years after that. The 'B' Service package consists of Services 2, 3 and 5 (inspections, oil change and cabin filter change) and is intended for scheduled normal services to be performed at 26,000 miles or two years and every 26,000 miles or two years after that. The brake fluid change is recommended every two years and in theory should be included in the 'B' Service, but is not included, it's an additional charge.

Routine service costs the same for standard and AMG models of the CLS series. Here is a link to the Fletcher Jones Mercedes dealer in Newport Beach, CA for service on Mercedes Benz cars. Note there are a few exceptions to the pricing for 12-cylinder and diesel engines, but usually not specifically for AMG models. One exception: a brake fluid change is $66 more expensive for AMG models than standard models. Brake fluid changes are recommended every two years.

Note that they all use synthetic oil and about twice the quantity of oil as most other cars. That is why the oil changes cost about twice as much as other vehicles. But you also don't need to change the oil as often with an interval of 13,000 miles or two years.
Here's a table of oil quantities:
2006 CLS500 8 quarts
2007+ CLS55 9 quarts
2006 CLS55 9 quarts
2007+ CLS63 9.3 quarts

The brake pads and rotors are one place where the AMG models cost significantly more than the standard models. They are race ready and not the same animal at all. But if you were to drive the AMG model passively, I'm sure they would last much longer than the base CLS brakes. But what fun would that be. The brake pads on my 2007 CLS550 lasted almost 25,000 miles on the front and almost 50,000 miles on the rear. At 47,000 miles I replaced all the pads with Akebono ceramic brake pads at Pep Boys (Mercedes dealers will only install genuine Mercedes parts). Best thing I ever did. Mercedes brakes are known for squealing and making an excessive amount of brake dust. The ceramics don't squeak and make hardly any dust at all. And they stop the car just fine. I don't notice any difference in the way they feel. I'm still on the original rotors.

were the ceramic pads much more expensive than the regular pads? my cls55amg brakes seem to squeal a bit as well.
also do you have any idea on whether the cls55amg rotors are the same as the e55 and or sl55''s as i have found rotors on Pelican Parts at a very good price (original Mercedes) but dont have a listing for cls, only E and SL.
i am thinking of getting as my drilled rotors are a bit scored etc. in Australia i am charged $800 just for the pads on my 55. they have front rotors x 2 for $151 on Pelican and pads for $70 a set (front)

The ceramic brake pads cost about 50% more that standard aftermarket pads, but about the same as genuine Mercedes pads for my CLS550. You can get the Akebono Ceramic pads for your CLS55 from Auto Parts Warehouse for US$135 front and US$153 rear for the CLS55 without the AMG Performance Package Code 030. Shipping would be extra to Australia. Here's their web URL:

Mercedes Benz Cls55 Ceramic Brake Pads - Auto Parts Warehouse

I don't know about the rotors. Remember this is the base CLS forum. You might check the CLS AMG forum. Better idea is to look up after market part numbers at an auto parts web site and see if the same part numbers are used for the cars you are comparing.
