New to Mercedes and an oil question!!

Hello to everyone, I am new to Mercedes, as I recently bought a 1999 C180 with the 5 speed automatic (the 722.6 I think). I live in Germany but am from the US. I am very happy with the car and it has very low mileage, 75000 km (about 45000 miles!). I was wondering if there is any words of advice regarding this model, and also am wondering about oil. Which US oil brands will be alright for this engine? Oil costs more than double on the German economy then in the US, so I would prefer to use a US brand if I can. Any thoughts?

You can do a search for oil, i think someone posted a list. Most of the people use mobile 1 synthetic ow30 or ow40.
