The logic behind your thinking is correct, but the execution is off.
If you look in the right places, you can get genuine MB parts at discount prices.
If you're comparing to a domestic car, then yes there will be a adjustment period when it comes to parts pricing. However, UNlike a domestic car where the parts become unobtainium after 5 years or so (a.k.a. no longer available) parts for these cars will remain available for a long, long time.
