Wrong gear oil in differential

I brought my CLS55 (NO 030 package) in for it's first service yesterday 1000 - 3000 mi.

For some reason (incompetence) they changed out the gear oil in the differential with 75w-140. My car is supposed to have 85w-90.

What problems could this cause, if any?

They also scratched the hood, so it's going back on tuesday.

I HATE OTHER PEOPLE TOUCHING MY CARS! DAMN IT!

I'm extremely pissed off right now.

RE: Wrong gear oil in differential

A dealer did this? Is changing the differential oil on the 1000 mile service list or was there a leak? I don't even know why they would have 75w140 in stock - don't think any Mercedes calls for it. I would insist that they replace it and also fix your scratch.

The AMG's with the 030 performance package (LSD) call for 75w-140.
No leaks and they are going to repaint the hood and i'm not happy about it.

Yes it was my MB dealer.
