Hi everyone:
What grade of oil you guys are recommand? 10w40/ 15w/40 or 10w/30?
Does anyone lower their '94 W124 E420? What kind of combos are ideal for city and highway? I'll plan for H&R springs and Bilstein Sport shocks, anything needs to be aware of? Thanks,

Roger

Roger,

In your climate, I'd stick with 10W-40 dino oil or else parhaps a 15W-40 synthetic such as Mobil 1. If you're going to use petrol based oil, go with Castrol GTX.
