Hi, again, marcellaeze.
If you're posting about a specific vehicle, you're best off if you post in your native forum, for you the W163 group. That way you isolate to your model and are more likely to get good information.
The A service items are listed in your owner's manual or if you search the threads you'll find them reprinted on the forum. Aside from an oil and filter change it's a lot of checks and balances. At 52K I'd think seriously about a proper AT fluid and filter change, too. I wish I'd done mine at that lower mileage, fluid looked awful when it came out and it's shifted smoother since then.
This might be the ideal time to find a good indie. Cheaper than dealers, usually far more concerned with their reputation as well. Your car will require 8.5 quarts of 0W40 Mobil One plus the fleece oil filter, so parts alone for the oil change -- properly done, of course -- is around $70 so you should expect the A service at an indie to tag up around $150 depending on your market. If you're not a big DIY guy and haven't had the car long I'd go ahead and take it in, the things they check may be stuff you wouldn't think about and might not discover. Just a thought.
At any rate, take care and enjoy the ride!
