Cartridge filter is a pain

First MB oil change told me why it costs so much. There is no spin-on filter. You have tro pull the cartridge, pull apart the spindle, replace the crush washers, reassemble it and thread it on. It is a lot more troublesome than the spin-on type. Plus, the car takes 8.5 Qts of oil.
