My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

I see no one has posted info on the services on these here.There are allot of different service items for these models and the costs will range widely and I suspect this is why no one has posted.I can post some info below for each the S and E class models on the services that are needed at certain mileages.The cost is not shown and you will have to look through the info to locate the pages on all the services on these vehicles.I can say a basic il change can sometimes run around $150 to $200 and that is usually the low end on the services to expect and the high end depending on what needs done can run over $1500 parts and labor in some cases.Brakes can run around $250,coolant changes aroung $150,brake flush around $150,transmission service around $300 in some cases....etc.

Your welcome Jamie.

The wires/boots rarely need changed but if they do you are looking at around $300 for spark plugs and maybe around $250 for wires/boots.Catalytic converters are expensive and can run over $2000 parts and labor if needed replaced.They are usually warrantied up to 80,000 miles however.Valve cover gaskets can run around $150,coolant flush maybe around $150,drive belt possibly around $100 to $150.Tires can be over $1000 due to the sizes.Wheel bearing replacements may be around $400 to $700 each depending on what is needed.Cabin air filter around $100 as well as engine air filters as the air filters themselves are fairly pricey.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help.

Thanks Pete
