      Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

      This filter works great on Mercedes. I use on my E320(200k+),R500(now over 150k) and my SLK500(now that Mtx contract has run out) I will change oil between 10-15k. Went 18k on the R500 and took it to the dealer after long road trip for G service and had them bring me the filter to look at absolutely no problems. Service mgr did not even realize it was not OEM until I told him. I have used OEM also, side by side comparison new and used shows no difference. THESE ARE GLASS FIBER MEDIUM FILTERS! Anyone who has actually look at one can see it. The picture is not the XG FILTER if you want to see one go to fram site or go to the store and open the box. Cost about the same as OEM, but always seems to be in stock. The filters might even be made in the same factory, it is done all the time, branding is just changed.

        Works great for my Mercedes. I bought my Mercedes new in 2006. This is the only filter I have ever used. Mileage is now at 150,000. Engine runs smooth. Like new. Oil is so clean you cannot see it on the dip stick.

            Do not use this filter in a Mercedes. It is NOT a glass filter that is required for a Mercedes but a cheap paper filter.

            Get a Purolator instead. Cheaper and a OEM filter as well.
