Its a CLK 200 kompressor convertable Avantdarde year 2002
Is this the typ of engine ??
Also I used Motul Xlite 8100 0w30 ester based oil in my TT as it was generally regarded as the best for that type of car , I was wondering what people on here were using

Hi,
Unless your Kompressor/Supercharger has been disassembled/rebuilt according to MB there is no need to look at the oil for it.
Be warned you must get the level correct when refilling the supercharger as it could cause foaming which in turn can cause damage apparently.
My C230K has done 136,000 miles now and the charger is still perfectly ok.
