'Single spanner' service due in a few weeks - I wonder what rabbits the dealer will try to pull out of its hat this time? Last time it was 12 expensive spark plugs....
Well, I took the car for a minor service (52000-ish miles) - service, change brake fluid and change oil (8 litres of Mobil 1), plus VAT.....£365.58.
They also told me that the front pads were 90% worn and the air filters were due for a change, but parts weren't in stock. So, back again the following week and another £300+
MoT due in August, so hopefully nothing more until the next one the following year!
Complimentary wash and vacuuming both times though. Gave me an opportunity to wander around the showroom looking at other cars - the new SLK really is butt ugly, particularly the SLK55 AMG..... There wasn't a single car in their showroom which I particularly liked; M-B really do need to return to the days of understated elegance rather than ugly, overstyled, blingtastic vehicles!
Perhaps there'll be an opportunity to put the roof down again soon....?? Summer? What summer?
