    Hello all,

    This question probably gets asked alot on here but I cant seem to get a solid conclusion.
    Which oil is the best to use for this particular engine?
    I can get the oil and filter through work you see and I have a mate who works in a German specialist garage who will change the oil for me.
    So I was going to treat the car too some proper good quality oil!
    Question is which one!!
    Do I stick with manufacturers which says Mobil 1 or shell helix??
    Any opinions or help would be great!

    Opie Oils of this parish will supply the perfect oil and give discount. Great feedback from members on here (myself included)

    Wonder what oil MB are selling? MB don't make oil so has to be from Mobil/Shell etc. Be interesting to know which one they put their name on.

    I bought a full MB service kit for my e270. All engine filters oil and sump plug from a mercedes main dealer off eBay for 50 quid with free postage. Unbelievable value. Did it myself. So a full service only cost me 50 quid.

    Keep looking on eBay.
