Not in the same country but:jdc1244 said:Mann, Hengst and Knecht/Mahle are all appropriate depending on application. The Mahle filter is OE for the 103, for example.
Yeah when I worked at a dealer I used to get free oil, as long as you ask them beforehand and it's for your own car it's ok. Strangely enough the dealer had Castrol Magnatec 5w-40 and at the shops they only have Magnatec 10w-40. Must be a special blend they sell in bulk to dealers only!!!! And I just remembered another reason I use the genuine filters is because they come with the correct washers and O-Rings (non genuine stuff seems to forget those little details sometimes)El Toro said:I probably should not tell anyone this... but a perk for working at the dealer, I just changed my oil for 6 bucks. MB filter and 8.5 qts of oil. Price was just the filter!
