Maintenance cost for C180 Sport Coupe ??

I am thinking to buy a (6 to 10 years old) C180 Sport Coupe or C180 Kompressor (CL203) and I was wondering how expensive are the maintenance costs. I live in Sydney.
I am not going to drive every day, neither many kms per year.

Thank you very much,
Jose

A lot depends on the actual klm the car has done already. I have had a W203 since new in 2005 and get it serviced at a reputable independent here in Brisbane. The cars circulate between an Service A and Service B and they come around about every 15,000 klm but if you do low ks it will be time based

Service A is about $400

Service B is about $600

You can probably do better than that but I am happy with my independent (3 point)

Other things might be needing replacement which can be on top of this - eg I had rear shocks last time as well on top of the service A cost.

Thanks for the information. I will drive less than 15000km, so I think is normally every year.
But I talked to a Dealer and he told that I should do it every 6 months.

What is included in Service A and Service B?
I guess one year is Service A and another year Service B

Cheers,
Jose

Well it is at least an oil change and filter but it really depends on what kays you have on what is required. For instance my next service B will also include a transmission service (125,000 klm). In the past it has been brake fluid replacement etc etc
