Your mechanic has suggested a schedule for a different car. 30K tranny services will get expensive if you drive the car. The feeling on the 722.6 is that the tranny will easily go 50-60K miles between services. You need special MB fluid, and the fluid temp must be 80C to check the level, dipstick not included. Generally runs $250-300.

On your A services, you should change the oil/filter, cabin dust filter, and probably the engine air filter. Do them when the FSS counts down. Change the oil more frequently, most people think 3-5K miles with Mobil 1 about right.

The M111 kompressor engine has frequent plug intervals, check your service manual. That's the MAX they will live.

Why bleed the brakes so often? Are you having problems?
