    Looking for some advice please.
    My 2007/8 s211 e280cdi needs a new air con condenser as it has a very small pin hole in it - I guess from a stone hitting it.
    Mercedes price is £345 +VAT less a bit of discount so £300+. Euro has two options - Hella at £200 and EIS at £40.
    I would normally buy known brands or MB but the price difference here is almost unbelievable.
    Has anyone used one of the cheaper ECP types - branded as EIS?
    Or any other suggestions on a better solution?
    Thanks

    It should be fine but why not talk to the ECP guys and ask them they get many come backs with the EIS ones. Hella would be OE quality.
