I have a2008 s320 which has done 70000 miles.

Hi all, is it ok to use certain additives on the 2.3 compressor engines, (m111) to clean the injectors and fuel system? At 67000 it may be time, but I don't know how effective they are and if the manufacturers claims are true. Anybody tried these, and is there a recommendation?
We are currently almost in a done deal with a 2008 S320 CDI, which has a DPF, however before putting the payment down we just want some last minute advise on this topic. i checked with my local indie, and he told me about these additive type products, which aid the regen process,

I have a '96 E320 auto (older in-line 6 model) and am looking at a 190 2.6 (manual) and a W124 300D (auto).
