I'm a new owner of an S320 with 34K. Is there really a difference between taking it to a dealer for service or taking it to an independent (i'm in NJ and Bell's is the nearest independent)

Thanks

My experience is that the dealer is very competitive with the local independents. I always check with both and don't just assume one is cheaper than the other. For me the dealer is much closer so it's also more convenient.

Our 140s are already a few models old now, and I've found that the independent shops pay more attention to the older cars. I'm in Northeastern PA, and our local dealer, Motorworld, sucks.There are some great local independent shops that really know the older models inside and out, though. Oh....and usually cheaper!
