Hi Musikmann,

I think you are going the "Vegas hard way".
From the sound of everything, you are going to need the dealer again. Why, then, slam the door. MB people will be pissed, because it is another problem to follow up; the dealership will get pissed (owner to Service), because you went to MB USA directly.
What happens if you go to the Service Manager and seed on him the "error" on the invoice. Tell him the truth, a relative in an out of state dealership looked it up and confirmed your guess of a mistake in the time billed (give him the 1.1 hr, and if you see reception talk about the price of replacement parts vs its $50/ea cost).
Should this not work, go to the dealership GM or owner and explain the situation and the fact that you, being a firm believer of an unintended error would wish them to correct it, rather than have you go complaining to MB USA.
Now you should be primed to go to MB USA, if you struck out.

By the way: I have no personal interest in this beyond that of a forum bystander giving my opinion. JV

A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.

Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
