Very often you will see a Valeo and a Bosch alternator listed. The difference is simply the brand. I recently replaced the alternator on my C280. The original alternator was a Valeo and I replaced it with a Bosch. So in most cases it boils down to a brand preference. You might want to identify the brand that came on the car originally.
