After that, have Jiffy lube change your oil! Make sure the tech uses the large breaker bar to tighten the oil drain plug!

Ouch! Go to a MB tech ! I have NEVER had god luck with Midas, Jiffy Lube, etc. They do not appreciate what you drive!

I'd use a tape measure, protractor and eyeballs before using Midas. Too many horror stories. Did you inquire with your trusted MB Tech to see who he uses for alignment jobs?
