W211: Please maintain your cars.......

This car sees it's factory recommended 10k oil change 0W-40 synthetic once a year. Customer brings me a multitude of other cars, but for some reason, refuses to maintain this one properly. I guess a W211 is disposable.

Whoever did the oil change last used a cheap PAPER filter - that's not what you want to use on these engines. Polyester filters by Hengst are a couple dollars more and infinitely more robust. They'll also handle the sludge of these once a year oil changes.

Not only did it need a filter - it needed some air filters too. The car was hesitating and just refusing to do any sort of full throttle acceleration. WELL NOW WE KNOW WHY.

For the love of god folks, please maintain your cars.
