can you guys list what's done in Service A and B.
for example; i know for service B it consist of oil change, whiper change, etc.
and what are the pro, and cons of doing it myself / taking it to a german boy to do it for me;other than cost.

What year is your car - it seems a search will help - this is well recorded for Pre 05 and Post 05 cars...the first can be reset through your window toggles, and the reset button - the later with a trip to the dealer or with a laptop and a program...

about service a and b

you use the stearing wheel functions until it says service a or b due then you push the odometer reset button and hold it till it askes you if your sure you want to reset service then you hold it again till it resets.

service a is a lot of inspections te main thing is oil change. they will also inspect things like functions making sure every feature works and just check brakes and also i believe lights.]

I believe service b is changing of the pads and sensors and also another inspection i can find out tomorrow what service b is and repost

I know for sure that the brake pads and sensors are not covered under the B service. Save yourself some $$ and do the service(s) your self. I take my car to the local Mobile 1 oil changer because they also lube the chassis which I can't do. I take my own OEM oil filter. It runs me $70.00 and I stand there and watch them do it (try asking the dealer to let you watch). Since my car don't have a dipstick, I have to bring up the menu for them to verify that the oil level is OK. The cabin filters are $10 ~ $14 and are super easy to replace. The engine air filters are easy to replace too however, as much as the dealer charges for A/B service I found that they are not included as part of the service. Actually when I checked my air filters it look like a bird had been taking up residence so I have a hard time believing that the dealer is even looking at them!! Surley you can replace wiper blade inserts!! The brake fluid, Power steering fluid and cooling containers are easy to check and readily accessable. According to the owners manual the transmission fluid does not need checked. I reset my own FSS counter according to the owners manual manual.
This is the way I see it. A Mercedes is still a car; a damn fine car, but a car. The same maintenace you would do on Buick is pretty much the same for a MB. I keep all the receipts in a file along with all of the service receipts that have been performed at the dealer in chronological order as proof of my desire to keep my German engineered machine in tip top shape. I even take this file on long trips just to keep the "you know what" under control in case of a breakdown.

You should take the car to dealer a few times under warranty and have them do a service or two just to have record of you bring it to them.
