Fleece filters in Diesels
Per the above web page oil info:
"For gas engines of the M100 series, gas engines of the M200 series and diesel engines of the OM600 series (not models with Euro 4 diesel particle filters), 229.5 engine oils must be used with fleece oil filter designed for use with 229.5 engine oils."
All of the passenger diesel car engines from the A180 CDI to the S400 CDI are designated with the 600 series engine number so I'm still not sure whether or not fleece filters are needed. However, diesel particulate filters came on after 2005 model year.
