I guess that would come down to cost. I want 2 fobs. I don't care so much if those fobs are made by Mercedes or not. Quite frankly the range of a modern remote would be nice. So whichever option is cheaper is fine with me.

Some company out west has a system for replacing the old style key system with its push button system. They incorporated a remote start also, windows down, etc...the original anti theft system was not an issue as well.
And this was in the past 9 months. Modern technology does wonders!
I was going to do the same...but now I hear...MB has the key issue resolved and should be available in the coming months...

If low cost us your bellweather, then I think you would be better off with aftermarket entry and couple with remote start. Then all you would need from Benz for post ‘96 cars are keys with chips programmed to your das/ecu. This is the arrangement I have....
