    Are these filters any good? I ordered a ‘premium’ cabin filter from GSF expecting to recieve a MANN item as usual. They sent this instead?

    Hengst or Knecht used to be OEM for Merc once in a day.

    Yup. Mann and Hengst and Knecht are all MB OEM.

    I've brought filters from Mercedes that have been made by Hengst.

    They're good quality. I've bought genuine MB oil filters which were marked 'Hengst'.

    I'm happy to use either them or Mann.
