Question After Market Parts?

My 420 has only been serviced by a MB dealer in the past but now that I'm retired, I have to watch my money and try to do things myself. I do enjoy fixing things, from gas stringtrimmers, lawn tractors, freezers, and anything that I can take apart. Now I need to start tinkering with my 14 year old MB 420 SEL. It's been the best car we've ever had. It has cost less to service at a MB dealer, and less to operate over the years, than any car I've ever owned. It really is a well built car.

Has anyone had any problems with Mercedes aftermarket parts?
I need to save money, but if the quality isn't there, neither is the savings.

Thanks to all
