If it’s 5W30 and meets 229.51 it will be fine but Lucas don’t make engine oil do they? So the brand doesn’t matter too much really

I think the word "meets" is critical. That doesn't mean that it is Approved by Mercedes to 229.51 standard.

Many on here use it with no issues at all. Its also what the dealers use.

Looking at Mercedes own spec sheet for approved oils, it seems to indicate that for my 646 engined cars I can use 229.31, which is a lot cheaper than 229.51.

Just wondering ...

Thanks Wighty. Even so that's a great price. I'll follow suit when my current stocks run out.

There are 8.5 litres of it running around in my E55 engine. It's what my indy uses as well.
