oil filter removal tool for '91 300E?


I just did my first oil change on my '91 300E - topsider rocks!

Anyways, I could not loosen the oil filter with my hands .... I bought this filter removal tool at Autozone and managed to remove the oil filter .... however, I do not like this tool .....

When I installed the new oil filter (bought at Mercedes dealership), I tightened it with my hands .....

* Is there a better tool to tighten the oil filter?

* What is the best place to buy oil filters? (costs $14.70 at the dealership).


'91 300E 3.0L / 138k / Pearl Black / De-badged / 16x7.5 Mille Miglia Bello Wheels / S600 grill / Euro Headlights / Smoked Corners / Smoked & Red Tail Lights / Bilstein Shocks / K&N Air Filter / Sony Xplod / Connected IPOD
