C^# S differential fluid change

Much previous discussion on this with no apparent resolution. I took my 2019 C63S in for the 2000 mile service, rear differential fluid change, and my service advisor showed me, on the MB computer, that the requirement is very much valid. No big deal, and a reasonable $203, including tax and used fluid, shop materials charges. MB of Tampa, ask For Jesus, the best service advisor going.

'19 E63S sedan
And it's included in pre-paid maintenance. Are you swearing or just forgot to take your finger off the Shift key?

The finance guy at MB Plano in Texas lied to me and told me it was $1000 for the differential service. He was trying to get me to purchase the service plan.
I had initially purchase the service plan, but then I researched the cost of the differential service and got severally pissed off and cancelled the plan and got a full refund.
Bad on me for not remembering that the finance guy is going to try and up-sell you for more profit. Bad on him for lying just to make a few more bucks on a $100,000 car sale.

To make me more pissed off, this guy was a former soldier...to code of honor on that one!!!

I'll be going to a different dealer for my service...

Uhh... There is definitely consensus that it needs to be done... My vehicle even came with a Mercedes Factory sticker on the windshield officially stating such. No question you need to have it done.
