w212 power steering fluid

2010 E350 212.
Power steering works fine but on cold mornings there is a wining noise for quite a while, worse when steering wheel is turned.
I've removed the massive cover over the engine and found the reservoir, the fluid is near the bottom of the dipstick.
is this a special fluid that i need to get from MB at silly price or can I get it in Euro car parts/Halfords?
Its going into my local indy in a weeks time for MOT so will get them to check for a leak. Would Wynns Power steering stop-leak be a possibility, I've good experience from Wynns products?
There is a possibility that I may sell this car in the next few months so don't want to spend money on repairs if I can get away with it. I will of course buy a newer E350

As above, use OEM fluid. Not a good idea to mix different brands anyway.
