Hi Bros, wanted to do a quick check on how often do you all replace the automatic transmission fluid and filter for the 9G-Tronic in the W213? Official servicing manual for the W213 in the USA calls for a change every 60,000 miles / 6 years which is about 95,000 km while the technical documents for the 9G-Tronic (725.001) states as follows: Oil change interval as per NAT2FE+ every 125,000 km/5 years • Exchange of both oil filters in the oil pan, the oil pan must be replaced for this as the filters are permanently integrated into the oil pan every 125,000 km/5 years.
My regular workshop is recommending a change every 40,000 km due to "local conditions" but I am not sure if this is an overkill. Maybe the bros who are still servicing their W213s at C&C can also advise on how often does C&C recommend this change?
Also, I was quoted $750 for original parts and labour all-in. Is this a bit steep? I used to pay around $400 to change the automatic transmission fluid and filter for the 7G-Tronic so was quite shocked when I received the quote from them. Any bros can share where they usually do this replacement and how much did it cost? Thanks!
