...and it didn't even come with the o-ring.

Why? Is it because it has 'Mercedes-Benz' stamped on it? Ridiculous :surrender:

I've found them as low as $7 at various online parts suppliers. Just doesn't make sense.......whatsoever!

That's BS! No oil filter should cost that much. I wonder if it's because the parts coming from Germany have to go through a distribution center here on the mainland an then be sent to HI from there.

I just got one for $8 at the auto parts place with the O-ring and copper washer included.

Oops, found the oil-rings (2, one skinny, one fatter) crammed into the hole at bottom of filter. Matt, what copper washer, crush type I assume?

The copper crush washer is for the oil pan drain plug. At least on diesels.

wow that's a huge rip off. I'll ship you a case for a little more than that.

Called my local dealer for a fuel filter for my w108. He said this to me, and I quote " My computer shows none in the U.S. .... let me check Germany .... ooh looks like Germany is out too." Then I hung up.

Gotta be the cost of jet fuel to ship it to Maui....
How much is the gallon of gas in Maui?
I think I paid considerably high when I visited two years ago.

Diesel is around $4.50
