Hi,

After looking through the previous maintenance services the car has had done before I bought it, I see that it has a full MB service history. As it’s due for another now, I've been pricing up and an official MB service is more than double that of my usual servicing garage.

My question is, how important is the official MB servicing as opposed to a large garage chain in terms of perceived sell on value?

I don’t want to pay the extra money if it turns out having a full MB history as opposed to a full non MB history when it comes to sell the car on only yields a few hundred pounds, but I also want to be cautious of the opposite happening.

Your thoughts please!

Thanks

Depends on the current age of the car and how long you plan to keep it. If you are a 'short-timer', it may be worth it. But if you plan to keep it for a long time/ run it to end of life, it's not worth the money. In the end, it's the mileage and age that the determines the value.
