    Hi All,

    Going to service my E250 myself moving forward. GSF car parts currently has good deal on Mann oil and pollen filters. Pollen filter being carbon. Currently can get both for £29. Realise Mann is a decent brand not sure what oem Mercedes use?

    Thanks

    I use MB , Mann or Bosch generally , whichever is cheaper . The Mann frecious pollen filters are worth getting over anything MB

    I have used Mann filters in the past, no problems.

    Yep, Mann is good. I actually have been led to believe Mann make some Filters for Mercedes.

    Change mine for the first time yesterday at work ( I own a parts shop ) pulled it out and was surprised to find a denso cabin filter all stamped up with merc part numbers . Played about with those numbers trying to get another original denso because it had a plastic surround and fitted nicely. Ended up replacing with Bosch that was fairly reinforced after trying a wix and mahle that didn’t sit right but was the correct part .
    I’ll quote retail prices as obviously I don’t pay but I rang merc wanting the denso which they had at £42 which I would have payed if the Bosch didn’t fit nicely, the Bosch was £20 because no stock and there was a delivery charge the wix and marhle were £10 each .
    I’d always thought Mann was original equipment for merc just stamped up with a merc badge so was surprised to see a denso filter on a new car that I’ve owned from new .

    If you go into alot of reputabale indys, of which I know 2, you will see all the filter boxes are Mann (very clear due to the bright yellow and green).

    As you are aware at trade prices from places like GSF, these can be more than half the price of MB branded stock.
