Talking Benzworld has already saved me $600 in one day!!!

As a new member I have already been able to benefit from the great info found reguarding my 2000 ML430

I recently (ystrdy) replaced the stop lamp switch (took 7 mins) and was told at the MD dealership - "$250" ($20 part $230 labor)

My shifter bushings (took 25 mins) - was told "$139" ($4 part $135 labor)

And my Power Steering Resevoir - was told "$255" ($25 part $230 labor)

I bought the parts for just $50 and save myself over $600 in bull S*#t labor fees!
