MB doesn't make their own brake lines. OE/OEM is fine in this area. Quality difference isn't significant if any.MB rubber is what I'd want there.
OP is already complaining about $71. Why would he want to spend over $120. No real benefit for a street/daily driver car.I personally would look into an aftermarket ss braided / Teflon lined option
I replaced the original brake hoses on all three of my W210s. They're all 20 to 24 years old, but still good. I replaced them with OEM. Pretty sure they will out last me.MB rubber is the best. I still have original brake hoses on my W126's. Which is amazing really.
