I've used no-name aluminum radiators too, on a couple of turbo Subarus.

Havent noticed any difference in performance, but I like the all-aluminum welded rads because most all the rads I've ever had to replace failed at the plastic tanks or at the tank/core junction. All-aluminum rads eliminate both of these weak points. I wouldnt mind running an all aluminum rad on any benz.

If you are worried about how they look, IIRC the tanks are on the sides on these cars so not really seen. And painting the end tanks black should make them blend in nicely.

I wouldnt mind an all aluminum rad at all.
