01 SLK320 oil Grade

Hi All, My 01 SLK 320 is new to me and did not come with an owners manual. I've downloaded the owners manual with help from the SLK forum and it doesn't tell what grade of oil to use. It just mentions using the recommended oil; well, what would that be...... It's Not posted on the oil fill cap either.
Also, can anyone tell me if my power windows on the SLK vent when opening and closing my doors. Like the BMW convertibles do?

As always, many Thanks

Yeah, Mobil 1 0W40 here, been running it for years without incident. I've read that most full synthetic 0W40 will work just fine, but for a couple $ difference for my annual oil change I just stick with the Mobil 1.
