The H929x Mann filter used by the M117 engines may be going out of production. This is what MB supply re-packaged at the service counter as well.
It's unconfirmed, but everything points to it - pretty much all the stock I have bought recently is at the latest from 2013 (made in Brazil), and in the past few weeks all major European parts retailers have had a massive sale on these, with a 50% discount across the board. Smells like final stock clearance if I've ever seen one.

It's still marked as available in the Mann catalogue.

What about Mahle, they make top notch filters as well.

No idea, but I don't think we'll run out of suppliers soon. Mann just happen to be the OEM for those, so it'd be a pitty to loose that option.
