I don't think the MB oil filter design lends itself to using the magnetic collar. The filter is a cartridge type unlike other manufacturers that use a disposable canister. Anything debris caught by the magnetic collar would either have to drain all the way down from the top (like on my E320) or need to get washed out (an extra step) of the plastic cap.
