Well, I'm glad it worked out for the best. The MB spec addresses some specific wear attributes, so stick with the right spec oil.

Well the whole thing seemed a bit weird. Give you credit for coming back on to explain it. I doubt many would, just kind of disappear and never admit anything.

A magnetic drain plug would let you know if your dropping iron based metals

still noy a bad idea to send a sample to blackstone so you have a base line.

I would send in a sample to Blackstone or the other shop(dyson??) and be sure you don't have high levels of lead and tin (bearing material). Peace of mind for a small amount of money.

I will definitely send an oil sample off on my next oil change to act as a base line. The original oil is already drained into a mix of my other vehicle's oil so no good sample there.

Put 400 miles on it this weekend and ran great! Such a great feeling compared to last Thursday!

Look at post #15, he talks about the fact that it was not metal in the filter.
