Fleece oil filter?

Hello
I have a C240 and my regular online parts dealers have the Mann and Hengst Fleece filters. But I have not found a Fleece filter for the R320 from neither manufacturers. None of my regular online parts stores have fleece filters for the R320

What Fleece oil filters do you use? Where from?

thanks

I don't believe there is a fleece filter for the 320 CDI. The correct filter is the standard paper filter.

Thanks Robert. Waiting for other confirmations.
Several threats on oil changes in this R Class forum suggest a fleece filter, yet I cant find one.
For the Gas engined C240, i believe that the fleece filter alows for longer oil change intervals but I may have that confused with going from a 229.3 to a 229.5 spec oil

There is only one oil filter for the diesels. The gas engines had a "hd" filter introduced due to longevity issues, but it is not a problem on the diesels. Stick with Mann filters, they are Mercedes OEM for many decades.

My local auto parts has Valvoline Synpower MST 5w40 rated for MB229.51!
And cheaper than what Canadian Tire charges for Mobil 1 0w40 MB229.5 for my C240!
