How long does the battery typically last before needing replacement? How much does the replacement battery cost at the dealer? Will there be any warning message given if the battery is about to give up the ghost?
How old is your W211? What's the hourly rate at your shop?I had my batteries replaced a few months back. I needed the front battery and the rear battery ( audio battery ) replaced.
