[:X] Thanks so much for this break down...I recently purchased an '02 C230 kompressor and I need a part B service...I'm not looking forward to it b/c here, in Miami, it's $409.95 for the part B.... That could go to a couple more pairs of shoes, but a lady's gotta do, what a lady's gotta do! Thanks again and at least I'll have a heads up and not look like a cute, clueless chick when I go to the Service Dept.

While I just purchased a 2003 CLK320 that is about 8k miles from a B service does anyone know how to reset the flexible service counter? I had the oil changed and a full synthetic ( 9 quarts ) and filter cost me about $105. The rest of things that are listed I have covered in my mechanics 49.95 safety inspection.

Does it void the warranty to not have it done at MB?

Thx

i don't bother with the A or B services. I did the oil change and asked the dealer to reset the counter. Funny thing is, they did it once without question last year. When I asked them again last month after an oil change, they said that they won't reset it unless i get the service done (due to legal restrictions, BS).

Changing your own oil will not void the warrantee. My 2002 has the procedure to reset the flexible service counter in the owner's manual. It may be similar on a 2003. On a W208, the flexible service counter is reset as follows:

My local dealership quoted $350 and $600 for A and B service. Crazy.
