Well my experince with the auto wipers is sometimes they work, sometimes they dont. And this is not just Merc, i have a VW Passat that has them, and the car before the S-Class that was a S-Type Jaguar had them also. And in normal rain fall it works great, but, when you get mist and etc the wipers have a hard time telling what the rain is doing. Also, i find if your windows are dirty, it can fool the wipers a lot.
I am very much anti-rain x, i feel that stuff makes the auto wipers go more crazy as your adding a film on the glass. While, one trick i hear that keeps your wiper like new is to put rain x on the blades.
As for wiper for the S Class, i dont know which brand to tell you. I feel in love with PIAA Wipers that i had on my Jaguar, but they are a PITA to find. Only place that had them was tirerack.com, but the shipping cost does not make it worth it.
