Amazon has the Genuine Fleece filter for $15 and the Mann OEM for $12 which I guess will be far better than the Fram filter.

When you bottom out. (huehuehue -- sorry I couldn't resist that joke).

No, really. You bottom out. Shove it in until it doesn't go anymore.

Ok, ok, I'm done.

It seems cheaper in ebay. The markup at the stores is ridiculous.

I actually use a $6 fleece filter with good results.

You insert the inlet hose till it hits the bottom.

Saw this oil change kit on FCP Euro. Includes 8L of a Fuchs Pentosin 5W40 synthetic, Mann filter and even a washer for the drain plug for $62.99 incl free shipping. They also have Genuine MB and another oil brand (Rowe) but it costs more and not one I have heard of!

The Pentosin oil is Pento High Performance II and meets MB spec 229.51. FCP says in one place that it does and another that it does not fit my 98 W210 E320! Bevo 223.2 is supposed to tell us which oil for which engine, but doesn't seem to have older models.

They also have a kit with Genuine MB 229.5 oil and filter for $71.99.

Doesn't help us in Canada, but may be worth ordering when I visit USA?

In Canada, Mobil 1 0W40 costs C$50/4.4L at Walmart! In USA US$25.47 for 5qts (4.7L) I have in past bought 2 jugs in USA plus a filter here - Total about same as FCPs Pentosin.

WOW. I tough only Scotch is so much more expensive in Canada
When shopping for parts - bare in mind that when internet supplier do have smaller markups, they also have to add shipping (this way, or the other).
When I was buying MB coolant, I check trusty autohousaz and local dealer come cheaper when I ask for discount (although I had to drive for it).
One more time, when extracting the oil, try to use dipstick tube as it will speed up the flow comparing to small hose stick inside.
Will probably pick up more as well.

Kajtek,
Right! - I use biggest tube on my Mityvac extracter to dipstick tube where bung seals it. Quickly empties oil!

BTW, Those FCP oil kit prices included free shipping. For coolant, I just pick up Zerex G05 at NAPA - same as MB coolant used originally on W210. Cheap too.

By the way you don't need to jack up the car to change the oil. You should be able to reach, by just laying down in front of the bumper and reaching back. Even on the E55 which is slightly lower to the ground, you don't have to jack it up.

Just get a mityvac, pump it 10 times and sit back and relax.

Don't forget to remove the filter so that you get everything from the filter housing.

Nice write-up though!

I have that same unit. I disconnect the small tube from the rubber bung, then push the bung into the dipstick tube. As Kajtek mentioned earlier, much quicker removal of oil. But I have also done it with small tube, but oil needs to be warm.
