Which type of engine oil is recommended by MB ?

Hi everyone,another newbie with a question that has probably been delt with before on this board,I tried search,but with no success.[:(] Questions are : What type of engine oil does Mercedes Benz specify using in the V-6 gas engine of a 1999 ML320E ? What company ? What weight ? Nowhere is it noted in the owner's or service manuals. Could be important in case of a warranty claim. Also sythetic or regular ?
I'd appreciate any info you can provide.

I believe M-B is recommending things like 0W-40, 5W-40, and 5W-50 -- all are synthetic. Brand makes no difference, but Mobil 1 and Castrol are the most popular and widely available.

Don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day.

My 03 ML350 comes with Mobil 1. So did our 02 C240.

Weight depends on the vehicle.
