Cost of wheel alignment

My brother owns a 2006 ML class. I own a 2007 C class.

I took mine to Mercedes-Benz Manhattan and had a wheel alignment done (after replacing a cracked rim). They charged $90 solely for the wheel alignment.

He took his to Silver Star Motors (in Long Island City) and had a wheel alignment done after they replaced two front tires. They charged him $250 solely for the wheel alignment.

Are the two platforms really that different?

It really depends on if the caster and camber needs adjustment. In the case of your car, to adjust front caster/camber, it's required to install offset bolt kits. You probably didn't need any of these, and may have just needed a toe adjustment.

In the case of an 163 ML, the caster/camber is adjusted through the use of slotted holes for the mounting bolts for all 4 upper control arms. So caster/camber can be adjusted individually at each wheel. This may have been what was needed on your bro's ML.
