- 2007 E63 AMG V8 Estate
Picked up my 'new' E320cdi from the dealer yesterday. :bannana: It's only just done 11000 miles, so they carried out the first service (oil change!) before I picked it up. On the 'Digital Service Report', they show the oil used as being 'Shell 5W40'. Now I've searched the Shell website and can't find an oil that complies with the required MB229.31 or MB229.51 specifications - this is the low-ash oil for engines with a DPF. So, has the dealer used the wrong oil, or is there a Shell oil which does comply, but isn't shown on their website?
