^^^What? Are you saying that MB and BMW have an engine characteristic of not running with no oil in them? Every internal combustion engine needs lubrication to stay alive, not just the Germans. And he's not going to see any white smoke if the engine won't crank. No start, no exhaust.
Anyway, Rockit, you probably did. Sorry. No oil will almost always murder an engine. The only way that you might not have seized it is if you would have caught your mistake before it got to bad.
