If you go the MB Bevo website (link provided above) you can see the approved fluids for every service requirement.
MB approved means that the fluids have been tested by MB and that the content cannot be changed without going through the approval process. MB dealers should only use approved fluids.
That doesn't mean other brands are worthless or that they will ruin your car.
