How Much For A Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Oil Change?

The Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe is a great alternative to a supercar: it’s comfortable, practical, sonorous and very fast, thanks to the 503hp and 516lb-ft (700Nm) of torque produced by the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.

However, despite being able to cover the 0-60mph (96km/h) distance in a whopping 3.8sec, it does have its downsides, such as the expensive maintenance compared to a regular model that lacks the AMG badge.

So, how much is an oil change made at the dealer? Try $152, a sum that covers the oil, oil filter, and labor. Okay, it’s not that costly, and you won’t be required to do this operation before the odo reads 10,000 miles (16,000km), but we reckon that changing some parts of the suspension, or doing other work, could turn out to be quite expensive.

Besides the oil change, the car shown here also had to get some other work done, as the right side marker lamp was not functioning, and this required changing the control module, and the rear bumper was sticking out just a bit. Luckily, it’s a 2018MY bought new, so the warranty covered them, and the owner eventually left the dealer with a smile on his face, after punishing the throttle.

    Yeah something really irrelevant cos they have motorplans and warranties in place that cover all these costs.

    6yr/100 000kms & 2yr/Unlimited kms Warranty. Warranty lapses, the motorplan generally covers most other issues.

    Are you really surprised? An oil change for an M car (even an old E46) will run almost $200 – sometimes more, depending on region – at the dealer.

      That’s only if you’re foolish (i.e. too lazy) to change your own oil. I change my E39 M5 and it cost me $90.00 and 30 minutes of time.

    Bargain! BMW in Munich is asking ~1100 € for the 2000km inspection for a m4 (transmission fluid and oil change)

    I’m in love with this car. The same way I was in love with the E46 M3. So good!

    Oil is around $10 a quart, so 1 per cylinder is $80. Then the filter is at least another $10. So you’re looking at $90 plus tax in supplies and then dealers can charge whatever they want for labor. If you’re paying $70k+ for a performance 8cyl engine, do you really care about the $50 extra to have someone else change the oil for you? You only change it twice a year with heavy driving.

    Used Mercedes cars or trucks are for a handyman mechanics who like tinkering and skills maintaining their vehicles. They carry tool bag with them, jumper battery and if needed sortment of spare parts. Engine light or warning lights don’t scare them.

  • Dennis James

    It’s quite reasonable. For 7-8 liters of good quality oil plus filter, even if you buy them yourself you will spend around $100.

  • Infinite1

    It’s a MB, of course it’s going to cost more than $50.00 for an oil change, but you’ll need it like once or twice a year so it’s not that bad. Buying the service plan also covers these types of maintenance costs nowadays.
