This ran for approximately 250 hours on my Mercedes. Slightly wavy near the seam.

The o-rings were still flexible.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so.

Is it tied string on the outside or is it a mesh?

I just ordered these through my local supplier as well, and I cant see any difference at all when compared to a Mann side by side. I honestly think Bosch is just rebranding Mann.

String that's attached to the pleats.

The string is a good idea, as it prevents any pleats from bending over and tearing from oil flow delta-p.

It looks like one of the Mann-made fleece filters Mercedes uses in their older engines.
