Thank you for all the info and the burden you took to test the tranny fluid on the one with 240K miles, Kajtek. I learnt a lot from it, but please be careful with real estate ; it has not much to do with technicalities :-)
Now, to all others : I talked to 2 service "advisors" from Mercedes Benz dealers and one manager from a foreign car repair shop and they all said that MB do not recommend any change at all. One MB advisor suggested to do it at 35K or definitely 50k, but I could sense he just wanted me to bring the car in and do it to get some money. One other MB indy mechanic told me this : If it ( tranny) sounds OK, works smoothly and does not leak , maybe you do not need to do it , up to 150K or even more. If you ‘re not the type who accelerates and decelerates a lot, and there ‘s no leaking, no “visible” problem, just leave it alone.
