I was looking for the 229.51 spec mobil 1 last week since it is the spec required for MB Diesel or at least for my 09 ML. I looked in every parts house, walmart, etc but couldn't find it. After calling Mobil 1 directly they found it for me at a distributor about 30 miles away.

I wound up buying 30 qts to cover 3 services.

I use 0w40 in my W210s and my W211 but the spec on the diesel is pretty clear and might be the same for the OP.

Are you talking about ESP Formula M?
I was lucky (when I had cdi) that my local parts chain had it for the same price all other M1 sold.
But I also check NAPA and they would special order it for me.. for more.... if driving is not a good option, it is worth to check local places for special orders.
