Your car's required maintenance will rotate basically between services every 10,ooo miles approximately, and your car will prompt you when you get close to the interval.
You should also order an MB service documentation booklet and owners manual if you don't have one.
Make sure you use Mobil 1 synthetic and a factory M/B oil filter.
Don't skimp on the factory service requirements otherwise you will run into trouble.
How much was too much for the service-A?
Most dealers are charging about $300 in the Atlanta market, but I'm much cheaper, and mobile.
Trust me, if you can't afford the maintenance, you might as well sell it now because the cars are picky and the quick lube shops will most likely use the wrong oil, cheap filters and get the level wrong, plus they don't know what issues to look for on mercedes specific vehicles.
