The "rest of the world" thinks 75,000 miles is high mileage! My 98 C230 has about 74,000 miles on it, and the engine is like brand new. A recent compression test shows all cylinders exactly the same, and to new spec. (Signature Warranty means periodic compression tests to establish a baseline for engine...)

I'm never had a Mercedes engine showing any kind of sign of wear before 125K-miles, and usually WAY past that.

Maybe MaxLife should market their oil to MB owners like this:

"Designed for higher mileage engines with 300,000 miles or more..."
