Nice post. It helped me thru my first oil change nicely. One thing to make it a bit more foolproof. Add the 1/2 quart of oil as the first bottle and then add the 8 full quarts. This would help to prevent getting on "autopilot" and dumping in 9 quarts.

On another subject, my owners manual specifies 8 different Mercedes approved oils for my 2002 E320 in a wide variety of viscosities meeting MB spec 229.1 or 229.3. For my next change I'm going to try the Mobil 1 15W-50 instead of the 0W-40 since I live in San Diego and never go anywhere cold.
