Argos (Plaintalk system) is Dangrous or risky?

I am planing to get my 2005 C320 phone system running. I was told by MB dealer that it's okay to get the aftermarket BT part due to the cost of almost $3000 for the OEM parts. However, I was also told by an experienced MBZ BT phone installer/seller that would be too risky and dangerous and not worth a try.

The cost for OEM part is more than 10 times, but the installer's opinion is that can cause a electrical problem and damage the computer, and MB dealer will blame the after market part.

Seems logical, but hard to believe that can cause such problem if it's made specifically for my car model and year.

Therefore I would like to ask you if you ever used the Argos system for your MB and has anyone had any electrical problem? please advise!
