The fact that Frantz filters clean down to sub-micron size IS NOT a benefit, but rather a disadvantage.

By cleaning and trapping such small particles it also traps the beneficial additives that have been put in the oils by the oil Company. This is not good.

What you end-up with, is very clean oil, minus its intended beneficial additives. I would stick to the Mercedes Filter that is recommended for your car.
