I replaced mine about a year ago and went with OEM - but it was insurance covered and the cost difference wasn't that high. I've read a thread on here that mentioned one specific aftermarket brand that had problems with fit, but I can't remember which one. I think it had to do with the placement of the light/rain sensor. You should be able to find it on the forum.
IMHO one of the disadvantages of having a car that's low to the ground is that it is more vulnerable to road debris. I lost my Daimler signature patch with the replacement, but my new one is a M-B product.
Another learning. In Chattanooga the people who install windshields are not a high tech industry. I went by the place that the Insurance company recommended, and it was a little tiny "hole in the wall" shop. Wanting to have the highest quality work I called my local dealer and asked them who they used for glass work and changed the work order to use them. When I drove over to that shop to have the work performed, you guessed it - a little "hole in the wall" shop. Go Figure.
