SL550 cloth air intake hose bad

The cloth hose that acts at the air intake from the grill area to the air cleaner intake has come apart and needs to be replaced.

Does anyone know of a replacement hose that is not made out of that cotton type material? Maybe silicon or something similar? I realize it must be somewhat flexible to get on and off.

I have looked and can't find anything beside the OEM.

There doesn't seem to be anything other than OEM. Also, there is a reason that it is made of that material. After all, why would MB choose it over plastic?
