Pay only for service detailed in your maintenance booklet. This is "required."

Anything "recommended" is solely recommended by the dealer. Mercedes doesn't do this and there is nothing only "recommended" in your service booklet. Dealer "recommended" service is BS.

I'm curious what additional work they "recommend" for a first service, versus the "required".

Your ML deserves the regal treatment at the dealer.

If you are cost conscious, why did you get one ?

Phone around by checking on dealers listed on the internets.
"A" service should only be oil/filter and a list of checks. Ask how much they charge and what they do. I've heard dealers add alignment, balance, fuel injection cleaner, state emissions tests to name a few.
