i got a 99 clk430, reccomended oils should be 229.5 spec,
i think the 229.51 spec is also acceptable as it is the newer spec for newer mercedes.
amsoil says it is good for both.

Lex, I use Mobile1 0-40W in my turbo Saab. Advanceautoparts normally has this on sale a couple times a year. Early last year it was 5 quarts of Mobile1 (I only need 4) plus a Mobile1 oil filter (normally $10) all for 24.99. Later last year, it was the same for $29.99. I haven't seen it on sale lately, so maybe it'll be in Aprils ads. I just changed the oil and don't drive the car in the winter, so I'm good for the season... Ron

Mobile 1 0w40 and Amsoil 5w40 are equal to one another. I personally run amsoil in my BMW and have my dad running it in his duramax its good sh*t

Lextoy, I noticed that AdvanceAutoParts has 5 quarts of Castrol Syntec Synthetic oil + K&N filter for $24.99 through 4/22/09 if you're interested. No Mobile1 though... Ron
