Windshield seal

Need to order windshield seal for the front and rear for my W110 .

There are two types available here one is a Genuine MB & the other Febi

Has any one used either or both types , what were the experiences specially while fitment and long run.

just guessing MB doesn't make them anymore , there should be a OEM supplier.

there is a huge difference between the price.

What would youll sugest ?

Which make should I order

I've no experience myself, but nearly everyone who has EVER ordered a windshield seal says any aftermarket seal just does not seal properly, only the MB one does.

Not a fun job to do once, much less twice. Go with the (still in production) expensive MB seal.
