I just got back from Mercedes-Benz of Tysons Corner where I dropped off the C55 with my tech to get her B Service done. The service light just came on this week so I'm having it done before letting her go.

In the interest of full disclosure I have attached:

- B Service Maintenance Checklist from Mercedes for the C55

- 28 Point Inspection I had done on the car 1/18/2012

- This C55's Vehicle Master Inquiry (This is the Mercedes Log for the car detailing every option and service history.)

I got a sweet little 2012 C250 Turbo with 1,880 miles on it as a loaner for the day, it's getting me excited at the idea of a C63.

I also had them do a 28-point inspection so that you could see the results, the car is in great shape.

Nitto Invo's come with 10/32" Tread new, both the front tires are at 80% and the rears are both around the 50% mark.

Tire Tread Wear From 10/32": (Fronts: 8/32", Rears: 5/32") as of this morning 1/18/2012.

These tires are great by the way, I'm very happy with them.

Also, another thing that might stand out on the Service Report Card (28-point inspection) is the No Cats! but if you read my ad you'd see that the car has Kleeman long tube headers and Kleeman downpipes. Thus eliminating cats. The car is registered at my business in a non-emission county so I've never had an issue with this fact. Plus the car has the Kleeman ECU-Cat-Code-Out, so no CEL!

I've been pulled over twice in this car and neither of the officers mentioned anything about the exhaust. Just sayin'.

Also, the front pads are just under 50% life remaining, this doesn't really affect their performance, it should just be noted that they will need to be changed in the next 10,000 miles or so. StopTech pads are only $80 for the front axle set, so whenever you feel like changing them it won't hurt your wallet much.

Most people who'd be interested in this car are enthusiasts who can deal with all these facts in one way or another without issue, I just felt the need to share as much information as I could about the car.

I have pictures of the car in the service bay etc... but I think I've posted enough. (Too lazy to host/post right now.)

If anyone would like to speak to my S.A. at Mercedes PM me and I will shoot you his contact information so you can ask him whatever you want directly.

TL;DR: On 1/18/2012 the car got B Service done @ Mercedes Dealership: Oil/Filter Change, Cabin Filter, Fuel System Cleaned, Fluids Topped Off, B Service Inspection + 28-point inspection.
