Brand is of personal choice, but the weights should go by the book... my shop uses the Quaker state brand with a perfect track record.

I don't think there's much difference between brands. So long as the oil meets the API specifications and is the correct weight called for by MB you should have no problem with any name brand oils. My shop uses Castrol lubricants without any problems.

Thanks for your valuable response. My maintenance manual refers nearly all oil replacement to "MBNA Factory Approved Service Products list". Can anyone provide me such a list?
