Recommended motor oil for E350

helly guys, new member here.

i am a proud owner of E350, and this is my first car, feel like a noob.

soon i'll have to change motor oil and i need to know what's the best oil for my car. i dont wanna guys at the garage tell me what to buy, cause they just wanna sell their products.

here are car specifications:

brought from Germany
year 2006
milage 108000km
i hear it's a new 272hp engine (have really no idea)

any recommended options or definitive choices are welcome.
thanks in advance.

Congrats. Please click user cp and edit details to add you vehicle and location to your profile, it's often helpful info when you are seeking assistance.

The key, at least for must of us, is not what one person recommends or prefers, but rather oil that meets the mb spec for your engine. That is 229.5. Oils that meet the spec will say so on the label.

If you are in the US, the easiest one to find is Mobil1 0W40.

Good lick.

thanks a lot CC, profile updated))

Mobil 1 is what also previous owner recommended me, but what i hear that we dont have genuine Mobil 1 motor oils in our country. my friend recommended me to by Castrol poly-sinthetic, again dont know ho they are coded. apparently there's genuine Castrol motor oils in the market here.

Here is the full list of approved oils under the 229.5 spec. I'm sure some of them wil be available there.

Happy motoring!
