* Pos, I'd second that Interstate recommendation. I sold Interstate batteries in my first shop for over 15 years. The batteries fit the MB battery trays, come in the right electrical capacity, and the company's warranty policy is generous (they'll usually provide a replacement battery even if the problem is not clearly theirs). I'm selling (only) Interstate again in my new MB shop (for the older cars).
* I believe I read somewhere that Interstate is Daimler's official choice for a replacement battery in the USA.
* Getting 5 years out of an Interstate battery, even in a diesel in the colder latitudes, ought to be routine. Of course, it should go without saying that that's contingent on good engine and battery maintenance.
