Exclamation Oil Change

Hey guys, I'm new to this site and just wanted to say hello to everyone. I just had a couple of questions if you would be so kind. Sorry but i'm not so savvy with cars.

1) When do I change oil on a mercedez benz r350. Every how many thousand miles? Also, is it a good idea to wait for the warning light to turn on and then change the oil?

2) Same as above but instead it's a mercedez benz c230. It's about 17k driven and no filters have been changed.

Also we paid about $110 dollars for oil change but it was the first time. Does this sound like a legit offer at the dealer?

Thanks in advance guys!

You have Flexible Service System that determinate oil change. The system changed over the years, so check with the manual, but most common to access service meter is pushing the reset button twice. Cars with wheel buttons have it more complicated.
You might go to the section dedicated for your model for more precise answers.

Yes $110 sound right for a dealer.
