K&N replacement air filters are engineered to meet the demands of supercharged engines, like those found in the Mercedes-Benz SLK200.

Many of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class models from 2002 through 2011, and some E-Class Models from 2002–2006, and the 2007–2011 SLK roadster were powered by the M271 inline four-cylinder gasoline powered engine. The M271 was first introduced in 2002, replacing the existing M111 engine which dated back to 1992.

Manufactured at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Unterturkheim, Germany, the M271 was sold in certain models with an Eaton M45 supercharger, under the Kompressor label, to boost power. Supercharged engines need a robust flow of incoming air to operate at peak efficiency, so a K&N E-2011 replacement air filter is the perfect upgrade.

Supercharging is nothing new to Mercedes. Gottlieb Daimler, one of the two founders of Mercedes parent company Daimler-Benz) received a German patent for supercharging an internal combustion engine back in 1885. The world's first supercharged production cars were 1921 Mercedes 6/25/40 and Mercedes 10/40/65 models. They were distinguished as "Kompressor" models, the origin of the Mercedes-Benz designation that continued on into the 21st century.

In simplest terms, a supercharger is an air pump. It's driven off the crankshaft, typically by a belt. While there's a penalty inherent in a supercharger, drawing power from the engine to drive the "pump", its positive impact on engine efficiency greatly offsets the small loss. But to do so, a supercharger needs a constant flow of incoming air.

The K&N E-2011 replacement filter comes pre-oiled and ready to install right out of the box.

K&N replacements air filters, like the E-2011 are engineered to meet the demands of a supercharged engine. The filters are manufactured using multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media, rather than the inferior paper elements used in many OEM and replacement filters. The oiled cotton construction not only provides for greater air flow into the motor but also features excellent filtration properties to ensure your Mercedes' long engine life. This is well-proven by K&N's in-house International Standards Organization 5011 air filter filtration efficiency testing, which adheres to strict ISO specifications, ensuring that K&N air filters provide high airflow while maintaining engine protection.

Further, the K&N E-2011 replacement air filter is emissions legal in all 50 states legal and will not void your factory warranty.

A K&N replacement air filter is guaranteed for the life of your Mercedes. The only service required is one you can do yourself: at intervals of 50,000 miles (depending on your driving conditions) simply use a K&N 99-5000 air filter cleaning kit to clean and re-oil your air filter. K&N guarantees your filter will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement. For full details visit the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty web page.
