Despite typical high prices at dearlerships, oil changes there are relatively inexpensive. Plus, I know they are using the proper grade of oil, OEM filter, and know how to reset the FSS if necessary.

If I don't always do my oil changes myself, but I would never trust my MB to those oil change chains...

I think you would have to take a filter and a crush washer to jiffy lube.... and hope that they don't cross thread your drain plug.

too easy to do yourself... especially is you use an oil extractor to suck out the oil.

Another option, which I prefer, is to use a good independent MB shop. I would not recommend a chain store.
