As long as the service is performed completely WITH approved oil & filter, ANYONE can reset the service lamp. If you have the service done elsewhere make sure to keep receipts! Anyone that tells you different, had better talk with a LAWYER!!
MB doesn't require service work to be done by their dealers! BUT they do require that service work must conform to their printed recommended schedule!
You service booklet contains the recommended service required, THEY should also suggest a brake fluid flush as well! Make sure to have that done!
