Haven't used it.

But keep in mind that this is not a full A or B service, just an oil and filter change. The full A/B schedule involves additional checks.

MB worked-out that many owners of older cars no longer adhere to the A and B service schedules and simply carry-out a basic oil and filter change once a year. It is this market that MB have been trying to corner for some time now.

Additionally, when owners bring their cars in for routine servicing, other items may get flagged-up.

These includes scheduled items (other filters, fluids, etc) and wear items (brakes, exhausts, etc).

I am nor sure is MB would then quote for these at their standard rates or perhaps they have a reduced rate for older cars.

In short, I personally prefer to have the full A/B service carried-out by a trusted specialist, then suffice with MB's basic oil and filter change.

In my opinion, for an older car, the Service Care Plan is a much better value for money, as all additional items are included, so you don't have to worry about spark plugs, or ATF, or fuel filter, etc, etc.
