I don't have any "cans" to cut open, so here are a few pics just for the heck of it. smile
But seriously, they make a cartridge great filter. If you have one of these M112 or M113 engines, you can't go wrong. It is the exact same filter as the Mercedes one.

approved banana Looks like a sturdy construction. Mahle/Mann filter is also my first choise.

Looks like it is built like a tank, probably is OE.

The MB filter is exactly the same except has a MB logo and doesn't have the two black depth lines so you know the filter is in all the way. They figure a MB tech has to know without the lines. It also comes in a fancy box with a hologram seal closing it.
It also is likely identical media to the Purolator Boss. You can find the Boss media slammed by the Fram Ultra folks. I think they sleep with their Fram Ultras. They know more than MB about oil filters.

This looks like the same filter that fits my 2018 C300. Very sturdy construction indeed.

Based on published performance, no reason to think it's not true info.

I believe that's also the same filter for the M272 and M273.

MB OE unused. Can't go wrong with MB recommended filters.

I always advocate the use of Mann or Mahle filters, they really are the best you can get (apart from Donaldson filters for quarry vehicles and mining vehicles)

You can save yourself a lot of money by purchasing the non-Mercedes branded Mann filter (commonly $9), or the Bosch version which is identical (RMEuropean for $7). The Mercedes branded versions typically go for around $15. I am not one who pays 6+ extra bucks on a logo. See my filter comparison here: https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ub...dge_filter_comp
