I was replacing hoses under my hood and just took it off to Autozone, popped the hood and asked the guys there to find something of similar bend, length and inner dialeter. I ended up buying Ford hoses that I had to cut down with an exacto knife, but everything works and looks natural. You might have to go to the Classic Center or a stealership to find the "right" (meaning expensive) parts.
As far as I'm concerned, a hose is a long, cylindrical thing often made of rubber or hard plastic, and may be used to pass fluids or vapors of some sort. Whether it says Mercedes or something else on it is immaterial.
