I purchased coils from ebay for 50.00 for the pair, I have a 1996 c220 so there is only two but are a pain to install because they are under the manifold. Since the coils are so hard to install should I have gone with more expensive coils or is the inexpensive ones ok? Anyone purchase non oem before with any experience on them please chime in. Thanks

I can;t comment specifically on the coils, but my general rule is if it's hard to reach or remove, go with OEM and save yourself a potential headache. If they are the same brand as OEM and are legit, meaning not Chinese knock-off's, then they should be fine however.

You may have read multiple accounts on this forum by members who bought non-Bosch MAF's only to have them fail immediately too, which makes for troublesome troubleshooting.
