The plans are always way overpriced as youre essentially paying interest. Better to just put that service money aside yourself
I have a CLS and the cost of 3 services on this deal is about £1200.. Imagine thats cheaper than paying at the time.Had 1 service so this would be for 2,3,4.

That’s the reason I won’t planning to own a car... lease it and don’t worry about all these headaches (and this is just annual service) God save from any issues and the pricetag for parts and labour
Bought the car Oct 2017 brand new for £30,500... and for that price im happy.
£900 (with the discount) for 3 services for my A class. £300 per service. That's how much Halfords charges for it, so it seems good deal for me.

Jeez that's expensive compared to VW /Audi service pack prices. 2 of those services will essentially be an oil change, the other will get you an air filter and maybe a pollen filter. Is brake fluid change included in that?

VW/Audi will sell you a 2 service pack with a new car (up to size Passat/A4, including performance models no bigger than 2.0 engine size) for £199. If you buy it after buying the car, but before it needs its first service, it increases to £297 (or £16.50 a month for 18 months).

Yes. Also included spark plugs and Adblue refilling.

My next service is a major one (Mercedes calls it B), so these will be two major and 1 minor if I take 3 years.

If you need adblue (diesel engines) then you don't need sparkplugs (petrol engines) you'll need one or the other. Either way, adblue costs about a pound a litre at retail prices.

Most modern DI petrol cars need new spark plugs every 40-60k miles, doubtful you'd get a new set on service 2 (your first major service).

It's still a royal rip off at those prices. Is it any saving at all vs walk-in servicing costs?

Get your Golf GTI in for a service and minor services are £184 standard walk in price, majors coming in at £259. The packs should be saving you real money.

£300 for an oil change that constitutes an hour's labour (if that, half an hour waiting for oil to drain and half an hour's actual work) and about £60 of parts/oil is not a bargain.

Yes Mercedes services are unreasonably expensive, but if you want your car serviced by them, this seems to be the cheapest way to do it. Not sure why so cold. Good find OP. Hopefully it helps some
Mercedes service plans include gearbox oil change too which is around £350 on its own, unlike other manufacturers.
If I had some CLS V8 monster, I'd expect to pay £300.for an oil change, but for an A200? No way. Doesn't seem that these packs are saving any money vs booking in and paying for it as/when needed.

As per EU rules, you're no longer obliged to get servicing done by a franchised dealer to retain warranty, as long as the garage servicing it uses genuine parts and correct specification oil. Buy the bits and get your local indy to do the necessary for probably £60 on consumables/oil plus £50-60 labour max.

Most service logs are done electronically now, with no physical record. Makes it harder to prove service history of selling privately rather than going back to p/x to the franchised dealer.

Unlike other manufacturers who charge much less. DSG gearbox fluid change is about £120 at 40k miles on a VAG group car. Nanual boxes generally sealed for life.

you still have to service lease cars, especially MB which seem to need servicing every 5 minutes, horrible quality cars inside and out

The lease I’m on don’t need servicing
This will also include gearbox oil changes etc which if due and depending on your model can cost upwards of £500 pound even for a private garage because the oil is really expensive. This deal can be worth it if you time it right.

Very true, the trouble is....if you're one of these people who do a PCP on a new car every 3 years I'll be they insist on main dealer servicing to keep the future value up. Most dealers will do anything to reduce the price of a trade in
My local Indy does an oil change for a flat £50, I could do it myself for a lot less but I really can't be arsed getting my hands dirty anymore!

I've never had a VW or Audi dealership question where the car has been serviced when chopping in, but for my last couple of cars, the service packs that have been available with the carr seem reasonable value for money (2 services for £200), so no reason for me not to go to main dealers with a prepaid service pack.

However, VW and Audi have gone digital with their service records recently. They'd say it's greener. I'd say it's harder to prove the service history if you want to sell privately - no paperwork, no stamps in a book etc.

Yes, I know what you mean, although stamps in a book can sometimes not be worth the ink they've been stamped with. My daughter bought a car a couple of years ago from a small indie dealer, had nothing but trouble, was sold as FSH, but 5 of the stamps were completely bogus. Luckily she managed to reject the car

exactly, stamps were a joke, you could but one for a tenner. Digital is much more secure, although still exploitable
