Hi,
Has the car got service history? check to see if there is any record of what grade oil it has been running on, as it may be running on fully synthetic.
I have a C230K (same engine as yours) and mine runs on 10w40 semi.

To keep it as near as possible if you use an oil that meets 229.1 or higher then you are fine, and that goes for an oil change too
