This is not worth arguing but my main point is that there is no single best option.

I do realise there are other options and I still feel the OEM approach is best for me. Now what went wrong with your analysis?

If the question was simply "what is the cheapest option", the OEM kit would be clearly ruled out. Taking into account that the question was from an MB owner, I assume he/she has other values at higher priority than simple cost.

Not only the phone, but I want everything OEM on my car. One exception I made was the tires and I already regret it. OEM were ContiProContacts and they lasted less than 20,000 miles. I replced them with BFGoodrich of almost the exact same specifications. I saved a few dollars but the car just doesn't ride as well.
