I don't think my mind is playing tricks on me for this simple reason: Your service advisor is telling you 50,000 miles, and mine is recommending it, but is still vague about the "when". I'm willing to concede that mine is a slacker, and yours reads everything he can get his hands on, but how can either of us be assured of that?
This brings us back to a point I made in the other thread. Namely, if MBUSA is telling us one thing, and the dealers are telling us something else, what gives? And not only that, but different dealers are telling us different things (at least yours and mine are).
I'm glad I had my half-assed service done, but until someone finds, scans, and copy/pastes an official TSB or other written
change in the MBUSA policy on mbworld.org, I have to assume that their policy remains the same as I copy/pasted from the email in my thread starter.
If you can formulate an effective counter-argument to the above, I'd like to see it.
