Most of the stuffs on eBay are not OEM so check with seller to find out more. I installed after market(but look almost the same as OEM / no drilling or modification needed/ just screw on like OEM) on my truck and I love it. It look more aggressive or sporty. Check out other rides in this w163 galleries with nerf bar or step bar.

Mainly for looks.

Great add on for the price, especially when resale of vehicle all add up.

They are great for kids, 3rd row seat entry, and getting skiis washing etc off the roof.

I am 6' so they rub pants on exit but 5' wife likes them.

Watch for rust if they are used. They rust from the inside out.

Just Wanted to add...

I dont have the factory slide bars but have aftermarket side steps

They litteraly drop my floor clearance by half -so my bars a little bit scratched (nothing a black can of spray paint cant fix)

4'11" wife loves them but hates it when I deatail the bars leaving her w/ black smudges on her legs...

My 5yr old & I like them also...

Replaced my rusted out black OEM side bars with black powder coated stainless after market (Westin) bars. Cheaper than OEM and better, like many other componets on the ML. My 2 cents. :thumbsup:
