Service Question

I have a 2006 ML 350. Do i need to take my vehicle to a dealer to have it serviced or can i take it to a good indie. Reason i ask is that and indie i know has a great reputation and does the job at half the cost of the dealer. Does this have any implications on the warranty? Do i need to keep records of what maintanence i had performed?

You can use an indie. I do. I also KEEP ALL MY RECEIPTS. That eliminates any potential warantee arguments.

Legal indie suppose to have wet stamp to confirm the service in your booklet.
