THe engines that call for 0W-x oil have tighter clearances and are
made for the light oil. if the mfgr call for 0W-20, that is what
should be used. some call for 0W-30. the 0W-40 may be the spec for
some, but none I have seen. TO me it is an attempt to cover more
vehicles with one oil.
My 09 Brand X calls for 0W-20.
I dunno what MB calls for after 87. That is the newest MB I have.
Interesting thread. I'll be buying oil for the S430 shortly. I run
15W-50 in everything here, mainly due to the heat. I'm wondering if
that's not such a good idea in the S430?

0w-40 Euro car formula. I'd use that in all your Mercedes.
