    I invariably fit either Crossland, Fram or Mann Filters from ECP or CP4L - whichever the cheaper.

    As JBell
    Also try CP4less & GSFC
    You can never tell who'd got the best offer, you have to compare their final price. If you sign up they will bombard you with offer codes. I buy my consumables when a particularly good one comes up & keep them in stock.

    For info. When I replaced the two Air filters recently on my 350, the Merc ones removed were identical to Mann filters I replaced them with

    Type your car model into ebay, followed by "Air Filter" then order the results by "Price + Postage, Cheapest first".

    Then work down the list until you come to a manufacturer you've heard of and buy it.....

    Do you have a petrol or diesel 350?

    On the v6 diesel, nothing is considerably cheaper than both filters for £65 (original MB) - as far as I’m aware!
