If your car is a recent model there is no dipstick, the oil level is checked electronically and should be done in the following way:

Your oil must be hot........ park on a level surface.......stop engine.......wait 15 minutes.......turn ignition key to first position........find the oil check program using steering wheel buttons........turn ignition key to second position..........10 seconds later the display will show if your oil level is correct or needs more.

you must use synthetic oil.........mobil #1 is recommended by Mercedes or another fully synthetic oil with technical codes.....MB 229.1 or MB 229.3 or

MB 229.5, these codes are on reverse label of the oil container.
