Expensive spark plugs
Just been quoted on a full service for my 2002 w203 Elegance.
Had the car now for a week and absolutely loving it,except the quote for the service.....wait for it......Mechanic said $900 and $450 is just on spark plugs as he said there are 12 of them,so that's about $37 each,are they Gold Plated? 😀
Seriously I knew that buying a Merc it wouldn't be cheap to Mantain but $450 just on spark plugs is a bit much,I've been looking on EBay and seeing much cheaper prices,I'm thinking of buying them and saying to him "Here you go,fit them" Please anyone have an idea on prices for these spark plugs and which ones to buy? My car has 99,000km's and drives ok,idling ain't the best,put injector cleaner and will only use Premium petrol,but I'd like to get the parts ready for the service but not at his prices,as I'm not funding his retirement.
