If you're going to the trouble of getting your own oil, why not get the filter as well and do the job yourself? Oil changes on the CRD are the easiest on any car I have ever owned. Get a pump to remove oil via the dipstick - the MB engine is designed for that. The filter bowl is at the top of the engine, near the rad, but to do the job properly you will need the special tool (fleabay) to remove/replace/torque the cap. No crawling underneath - you could do the job in your Sunday Best! Changing the pollen filter is even easier. Also, fuel and air filter replacements are very straightforward. I have used both Dexos2 and MB oils as recommended in earlier posts; total cost of oil change = £41, including £6 filter from Eurocarparts.
