Servicing schedule for Merc W140 S-Class - Rojer
Where can I get my hands on a detailed servicing schedule for a 1996 W140 Mercedes S280 S-Class?

I want to know what it is that Mercedes charges (up to) £770 pounds for!

£770 = 7 hours of labour (yes it is £100 per hour) and £70 of bits (£20 for washer fluid etc)!!!!

I have all MB schedules in front of me at the moment. Which one is it?

Okay, It had the 90,000 mile service done at 88,000 so it's due the 99,000 service about now at 96,500. I think it's an 'A' service which, as far as I can gather, is oil, oil filter, air filter and a precautionary look around the car.

I've found a Merc specialist who will do it for £113 + VAT but he's using a semi synthetic oil, Castrol QXR I think it was, which concerns me a little.

Anyway, I digress, what does the 108,000 service (I guess) entail?

Also, I gather that Tesco unleaded fuel isn't as good as Shell unleaded fuel. Do you agree? I've just switched over this morning so I'll see if I can notice a difference. I guess it'll show in mpg and idle from cold?

Anyway, help much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sorry, Aprillia, I've seen your anser on the QXR oil on the other discussion. Thank-you!

How do you know all these things?
