Congrats on your purchase. What chassis is the car, W126? As for oil filters, I would go with the Knecht. Nothing against Bosch, but when I think of Bosch. I think electrical parts not filters. I have ordered oil filters for my diesel from a dealer and it had both Mercedes-Benz and Knecht names on it. Another filter brand to consider would be MANN. See what is available for you car at Fastlane, and pick from there.
I don't know what a "oil filter stand gasket" is, unless they are talking about the gasket for the filter lid. Though, if you buy a oil filter "kit", it should come with any new gaskets required.
