My MBz is at about 149,500 miles. I bought it at around 120k, and dont think it was serviced much as their are no records. I change the oil every 4-5k miles. The car is in good shape and runs excellent.

My question is should I have a 150k Service done at the dealer, or should I even bother?
If I do, how much should I expect to pay, and what services would be included in this?

Thanx

Just a thought.... I had an oil
analysis done for my car (300D)
at the AAA car Club. $25
This gave me a clue about the insides of the
engine with respect to wear, contaminants,
metal particles etc. It's an easy way to
assess one aspect of the engine !
Plus you have some preface data
in mind should anything else come up
or be offered to you as a recommended
'to do'.

If you don't do anything else at a dealer or qualified tech, the one thing I would do is the major services. Your tech will service every major component of the car if he is attentive.
